Reviews for the Asus N53SN-XV1

80% ASUS N53SN-XV1 15.6-inch Thin And Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
For a multimedia focused laptop, ASUS seems to have missed the market and put out a highly capable gaming system with the N52SN-XV1. The 1920x1080 display allows for HD video but they seem to have forgotten to add a Blu-ray drive. Instead, they put in a very capable GeForce GT 550M graphics with some superb audio. The hard drive provides plenty of space for media files but it is a bit on the slow side.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M:

Performance-level graphics card for laptops based on the old 400M series but with support for DDR3 at 900MHz.

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).

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.9 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
