Reviews for the Asus N55SF-S302
As a laptop, ASUS's N55SF is flawed in a couple of key areas; battery life is mediocre, it gets uncomfortably warm with a lot of GPU use, and it isn't particularly portable, either. But if you can forego the benefits of extreme portability, you'll find that the N55SF excels as a desktop replacement; where power, performance and generous dimensions are more important.

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