Model:

The Asus N series always oozes class; entertainment laptops that pride on excellent sound quality and stunning display. The Asus N550JK –CN113H is no exception with its awesome built quality and sleek lines. Finished in silver color, the aluminium built laptop is practically a work of art but with familiarity written all over.

The Microsoft Windows 8.1 laptop comes with a 15.6” 16:9 1920 X 1080 pixels HD 1080p matte display that certainly delivers sharp and vivid images. The processor is an Intel Core i7 4700HQ clocked at 2.4 GHz with maximum turbo frequency of 3.4 GHz, 16 GB DDR3 RAM 1600 and 256 GB hard drive size. There is an Nvidia GeForce GTX850M with 2 GB memory graphic processor packed into the hardware which makes it more than capable for gaming and graphic intensive applications.

The Asus N550JK-CN113H comes equipped with a Blu-ray drive, 3 USB 3.0 ports and all other standard features expected from modern high-end laptops. The battery is a lithium cell that lasts around 4 hours and is one area that could have seen improvement. Weighing in at just 2.7 kg, the laptop is not too heavy to carry around. In conclusion, the Asus N550JK-CN113H certainly will perform well while maintaining its good looks.

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.  


4700HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


100%: This notebook model is regarded by the reviewers to be exceptionally good. There hardly exist laptops, which are rated so good. If this rating can be taken seriously, this is a clear recommendation for purchase.
