Reviews for the Asus N53JF-XE1

80% ASUS N53JF

The ASUS N53JF-XE1 offers quite a bit of muscle and multimedia satisfaction. For around a grand, you get a full HD display, a premium design, impressive audio quality, and enough graphics power to play popular games. Some may prefer the Dell XPS 15 because it delivers slightly better performance, an HD webcam, and better bass for less dough. However, that machine has a 1366 x 768 display, compared to 1920 x 1080 for the N53JF, and we prefer the overall design of the ASUS. So if you want a bigger canvas for work and play, the ASUS N53JF is worth every penny.

The ASUS N35JF-XE1 is a powerful 15-inch notebook that delivers good value with a sub-par keyboard and weak battery life.

ASUS N53JF: Midrange 15.6” 1080p, Take Four
Source: AnandTech English

Four leaf clovers are supposed to be lucky, but getting four good 1080p LCDs in a row on notebooks is apparently asking too much. Looking at previous ASUS offerings, the N53JF ends up being better in some areas compared to the ASUS N82Jv and N61JV, but worse in others. Performance is one area that has improved, though it’s not such a major change that you’d want to upgrade.

Performance with the Asus N53JF-XE1 is as expected with the specifications that it has. More intensive computing tasks, like video encoding or playing a 3D game, worked without a hitch and seemed speedy. The 4GB of RAM provides more than enough room for running multiple applications and performing more intensive tasks. Battery life, however, is a downfall as only about 2.75-3 hours of battery life is available from the included 6-cell battery. However since this is a desktop replacement laptop, it probably won't be too far from a power source.
