Reviews for the Asus N550JV-CM067H

90% ASUS N550JV Laptop review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The ASUS N550JV is a really nice all round performer. The other two recent high specification desktop replacement laptops we’ve looked at - the Toshiba Satellite P50t-A-10U and HP Envy Touchsmart 15 - have had their own issues to hold back a full recommendation, the N550JV rarely puts a foot wrong, only really struggling with a slightly fussy touchpad. True, it has half the RAM of the other two, but we always thought 16GB was overkill on those machines, and the performance is pretty similar anyway according to PCMark and Geekbench 3, and in gaming the N550JV steals the show with a better graphics chip and performance not too far removed from the more expensive Alienware 14. It also manages to pack in a Blu Ray drive, which neither of the others do for the same price. It’s an easy recommendation, given each retails for the same amount - though of course there are bargains to be had below RRP. The ASUS N550JV is a good all round desktop replacement laptop which comes with solid games performance and premium design and build quality.

We had high hopes for the N550JV, and it’s true to say there are very few areas for improvement. In an ideal world we’d dump the touchscreen in favour of a little less weight and a lower price, but this is a minor nit-pick. Asus has struck a superb balance between all-round power, ergonomics and features, at a price that isn’t too steep. A well-deserved place on the A List awaits.

Asus NV550JV 15.6in full HD notebook - the one we didn't have to send back

Yet for Asus, the cost of having a touch of B&O looks like it could be off-putting, especially as the benefit only really comes into its own with the SonicMaster sub-woofer attached. I'm sure other manufacturers could source USB sub-woofers for a mere £35 extra if it was that important, and USB is much more elegant than the mini-minijack on the Asus. If Asus really wants to impress, it should be working with B&O to deliver a decent bass response from internal speakers. And if that's too hard, then it might as well give up on this partnership premium and use the money saved to compete on price.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GT 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» 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.  


4700MQ: 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.


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.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems.
