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.

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

16.0": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. 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.


3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in 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.
