Model:

In order to fulfill the computing needs of users across the globe, laptops manufacturers have kept introducing new products which should bring vast improvements in computing technology. Asus is no different; they have released one of their latest products, namely Asus N56VZ-4338D into the laptop market. Equipped with a 15.6-inch screen supporting full-HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, the experience of watching movies and playing games on it is simply stunning with the high quality display. Its combination of Intel Core i7 processor and the video card from Nvidia Geforce  can run the latest games with ease. Hence it isn’t really a surprise that it performs well in both work and multimedia tasks. Any task such as word processing, browsing and multimedia editing can be executed smoothly, which is impressive for a laptop in its price range. The best thing about this laptop is, how Asus managed to keep its price at competitive level considering the high specs.

However, there’re still some downsides to it. While its competitors have been fitting much better touchpad, the touchpad of this laptop feels stiff and skittish. It is also quite weak which is a huge let down for a laptop with such solid build quality. Although this laptop serves well as a multimedia laptop, disappointingly and surprisingly there are no dedicated media control keys above the keyboard. Other than that, there isn’t anything else that can be complained about this laptop. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a robust and reliable laptop with great media capabilities, this is definitely an excellent choice.

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.  


3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 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.
