Reviews for the Asus N61Vn

70% ASUS N61Vn entertainment notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English

ASUS’ N61Vn notebook is designed for entertainment, with a 16in LCD screen, plus it has enough power to chew through 3D rendering tasks with ease. It boasts a multi-touch trackpad, but lacks the appeal of other fashion-conscious notebooks from Sony or Apple. ASUS N61Vn notebook has a multi-touch trackpad, a 720p-capable LCD display and an optical drive capable of reading Blu-ray discs. It won’t last long without the power adapter, but this fashion-conscious entertainment notebook provides serious performance.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M: The GeForce GT 240M is the successor of the GT 130M / 9600M and has now 48 instead of 32 shader cores. Therefore, the performance should be noticeable better. Because of the 40nm process, the TDP is still 23 Watt.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.


Q9000:

Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.
