Model:

The Asus N56 line has established itself as a budget line with awesome performance. The latest from Asus is the N56JR-S4010D, which bears the same design as the previous iteration. The aluminum black exterior is clean and minimalist and the interior is a sleek silver, with black island keys and a black bezel. A forward thinking option to embrace USB 3.0 provides 4 such ports, with no USB 2.0 ports to speak of. The power button is surrounded by small holes drilled into the silver aluminum, for the speakers, and as expected for this line, the audio is quality laden. The Bang & Olufsen speakers are enhanced by the provided external subwoofer, making for the best audio of laptops in this price range.

Weighing in at 2.7kg, this 15.6 incher would be most suitable as a desktop replacement. In light of the fact that web surfing on WiFi drains the battery in 3 hours and 30 minutes, this machine is really more of a deskbound laptop. With the emphasis on audio quality, and the quad core Intel Core i7-4700HQ that clocks in at 2.40GHz, this is a machine that can handle professional audio editing tasks. With the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M with 2GB GDDR5, moderate gaming and video editing tasks are possible as well. The 1920 x 1080 resolution display provides a great viewing experience, and the matte finish prevents reflection in well lit areas. Overall, Asus have managed to create a machine that will satisfy both gamers on a budget and creative professionals.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M: Performance class graphics card of the GeForce GTX 700M series. Based on the Kepler architecture and manufactured by TSMC in a 28nm process.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

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. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.
