Asus N55SF review – multimedia at its best, with gaming on top
Source: Gaming Rig English
Overall, this ain’t a bad laptop, not at all. In fact, if looking for a powerful and multi-valent 15.6 inch notebook these days, you’ll hardly find many better (if any?), especially for a similar price. Of course, it has its flaws, like the glossy and dull-looking exterior (still, that’s only based on my taste), or the rather odd designed keyboard and multimedia buttons, but all these are actually not that bad and there are also tons of strong points to compensate them.

Like the N75SF, the N55SF is an excellent laptop. It’s quiet, has solid hardware (Blu-ray player, USB 3.0, wide touchpad…), a matte screen and powerful processing and gaming capacity. Note however its rather original design and keyboard may put some users off.

The manufacturer decided for Sandy Bridge configuration using HM65 Express chipset in combination with great 2GHz Core 2630QM i7 processor or 2.9GHz in Turbo mode. It is a four-core processor with eight threads, providing good performance. The rest of the configuration makes 6GB of DDR3 memory (upgradeable to 8GB), SATA 640GB hard drive and a separate NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card with 2GB of dedicated memory. Something like this is enough for some of the newer games as well as demanding multimedia. As power supply is concerned, a 6-cell 5200mAh battery provides approximately 3.5hrs of average use. There are also Wireless 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0, so the whole configuration meets all current standards. Although there is no eSATA connection for example, an USB Charger + variant allow much faster recharging of peripherals via USB port. The package also comes with carrying case and a good optical mouse. Overall, this laptop deserves high marks and a warm recommendation to anyone looking for a powerful portable computer that will easily handle the demanding tasks.

Beatbox. Asus and a matt screen? Not always but ever more often is the motto. Asus also shows what is within the realms of possibility with an external subwoofer in sound matters. We show what else to the Asus N558F has to offer in this review.

70% ASUS N55S Review: Great Multimedia Laptop With Some Issues
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The ASUS N55S is a good value and a good buy. It has a great full HD display, good looks, and decent build quality. The performance is excellent; this notebook is more than capable of playing the latest games. Most of the cons for this notebook can be summed up as "could have been better" rather than simply "bad". The keyboard for example is pleasant to type on but has some layout issues; the touchpad works well but the buttons are too loud; finally, the speakers sound good but aren't particularly impressive. A definite downside is the fact that the N55S does not have a backlit keyboard like some similarly-priced competing notebooks.

ASUS N55 Core i7 15.6-in Notebook Review: Can One Laptop Do It All?
Source: PC Perspective English
Yet these small issues hardly hold back the laptop’s many other strengths. Big, bulky 15.6” laptops are not what is considered cool these days, but they have many uses. This is a laptop that can basically do it all, with the exception of travel. If you need a single laptop that will serve as your only system, and portability is not a concern, the ASUS N55 deserves your consideration.

80% Asus N55SF-A1
Source: PC Mag English
The Asus N55SF-A1 is one of the best sounding desktop replacements in the business, thanks to some fine audio tuning and speaker hardware from Bang & Olufsen ICEpower. As a laptop, it's ferociously fast and can ably take down your gaming opponents without losing a single frame. Like any premium quality laptop, the N55SF-A1 is pricey, which is why I would look into the Editors' Choice Dell XPS 15z (Microsoft) before making a buying decision.

Asus reviews


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

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M:

As the successor to the GeForce GT 445M, the GT 555M is available in many different versions based on different chips (GF106, GF116, GF108) with different graphics memory (128 Bit, 192 Bit, DDR3, GDDR5) and  varying core speeds.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 


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.

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.


2.7 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.

2.8 kg:

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


83.44%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
