Reviews for the Asus N61JV-JX007V

Impaired Optimus. Nvidia's newest switchable technology amongst graphic cards stands for best runtimes in powerful mainstream notebooks. The following review explains why the 16 incher doesn't live up to the credo.
ASUS N61Jv Optimus Core i5 16-in Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
My overall experience with the ASUS N61Jv was extremely positive thanks to the performance the Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GT325M GPU offer, the large screen and keyboard/touch pad combination.  For a 16-in notebook coming in over 6 lbs, which definitely puts it closer to the desktop replacement category than the thin and light, getting 2 hours and 23 minutes in our very strenuous battery testing was actually pretty solid making leaving without your power cord at least an option.  The added goodies like USB 3.0 support definitely add the value of a notebook that sells for $899 which should make it a great option for a summer or fall college-bound consumer or anyone else on the lookout for this combination.

83% Asus' N61Jv is an impressively priced 16in laptop
Source: PC Authority English
Overall this is an impressive piece of kit. It delivers the kind of battery life we would expect from a six cell offering at this price point, but its form factor means that it is more likely to be used near a power point than on a train. It also has by far the best implementation of dual graphics technology to date on a laptop. Add in the robust performance, the great build quality and a forward-looking feature set, and you have a very impressive piece of midrange hardware.

The Asus N61 series of laptops is the first to feature Nvidia’s Optimus technology, a technology that takes hybrid graphics, in laptops, to another level altogether. If you really need these features, then, at Rs. 50,490 (excluding taxes), this laptop is an excellent pick. However, if you want a laptop for general office work, light entertainment and not for GPU-intensive tasks, then there are other laptops that cost much less and don’t have these many features.

Source: Techtree.com English
The Asus N61J will be priced at Rs.50,490 excluding taxes and will come with a one-year warranty. This is a very good pricing for this latest technology. The thing is Asus is the first Notebook vendor that will be bringing Optimus to the end user and they already have a line up of notebooks (UL50Vf, N61Jv, N71Jv, N82Jv, and U30Jc) ready to go. Right now there isn't any competition from other manufacturers, but you expect others to follow suit soon.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M: Slower clocked GeForce GT 330M middle class card and similar to the GT 230M.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
