Reviews for the Asus N43SL Jay Chou

70% ASUS N43SL Jay Chou Special Edition Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Although the ASUS N43SL's ostentatious design will turn off some, Jay Chou's many fans may love the personal flourishes the superstar added to the laptop. Regardless, the $999 N43SL outperforms both the HP Envy 14 ($1,079) and Dell XPS 14z ($999) in both graphics and performance. Only its battery life is lacking. If you're an admiring fan of the artist, the N43SL offers top-of-the-line performance at a reasonable price.

80% ASUS N43SL Jay Chou Special Edition - A Bold Statement
Source: Hardware Zone English
Celebrity-endorsed notebooks have been dotting the consumer landscape in recent history. For example, HP did work with Vivienne Tam on a number of their netbook offerings since 2008. For our test model in question, it is apparent ASUS and Jay Chou have invested a great deal of effort into the JCSE's design, although there are little upgrades being made to the original N43SL's hardware.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
