90% Asus N73Jn review
Source: CNet English
Laptop  speakers have always been pretty pants, but that could change if Asus' latest technology lives up to the hype. The company's created a new N-series range of laptops, including this 17.3-inch Asus N73Jn, that do away with the bog-standard audio gubbins you find in most laptops, in favour of speakers and amplifiers from the sound geniuses at Bang & Olufsen. The Asus N73Jn's speakers aren't as impressive as we'd hoped, but make no mistake, this 17.3-inch laptop is a fabulous all-round machine.

80% Review Asus N73JQ Notebook | Notebookcheck
Audio Expert. We are sending the strong 17.3 incher into the race with a loud drum roll. Balanced midranges and trebles make you forget the taciturn basses. Will the quad CPU add the icing in terms of performance?
ASUS N73: One Step Closer to Perfection
Source: Inside HW English
With such powerful hardware, the 6-cell 4400 mAh battery didn’t look too tough, and we weren’t surprised to see it collapse after less than an hour under considerable load, while a dimmed screen and lower load will provide you with a bit more than an hour and a half, hopefully. The cooling system is very efficient, and although the CPU has been known to reach 93 degrees when encoding video or playing games for an extended period of time, the user simply doesn’t feel this. Excess heat is efficiently exhausted on the sides, keeping the surface relatively cool. The fan is rather quiet, and we’ve been unable to really notice it during work. We believe that this model simply shines with weaker CPUs.

80% Asus N73SV Core i7 Sandy Bridge 17.3in laptop
Source: Reg Hardware English
An i7 N73 will set you back around £900 which is pretty decent value when you consider the top-end technical specification, superb full-HD screen, cracking sound reproduction, attractive looks and generally very good built quality. Compared to a 17inch MacBook Pro it’s a bargain. The downside is the bouncy keyboard, but as I tend to use a remote keyboard when writing I could live with that.

The N73J is a well-built laptop that does little wrong, but it struggles to compete with its rivals here for power and features. However, its low price makes it ideal for those on a tighter budget.

70% Asus N73Jn Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
A premium laptop for a less-than-premium price, the Asus N73Jn features an attractive design and excellent connectivity, backed by decent specifications. However, its otherwise good speakers are let down by noticeable distortion, its keyboard suffers from some rattle and flex, and its screen is sub-par. If you can live with these faults, it's a relatively affordable offering that's worth considering.

70% ASUS N73SV desktop replacement notebook
Source: Good Gear Guide English
Overall, the ASUS N73SV is a desktop replacement with very good performance, plentiful storage and a nice Full HD screen. However, it's far from perfect. It could use a much better keyboard, a dual-band Wi-Fi adapter and seeing as how it has the capability to run two hard drives, we'd also like to have the ability to implement a RAID array.

Although it's expensive, we'd say the N73SV is good value. If you don't need your computer to be a laptop, or if you're a gamer, you can find a more powerful model much cheaper. We'd recommend this model to anyone looking for a powerful laptop for general home tasks, video-editing and playback.

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.

Asus reviews


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

NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M: The GeForce GT 335M offers 72 shader cores (compared to the 48 of the GT 330M) and is based on the GT215 core (GTS 350M).

NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M: Successor of the GeForce GT 335M featuring DirectX 11 support and based on the GF108 chip.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M: The GT 415M is the slowest GT 400M announced in 09/2010 and features only half of the GF108 cores.

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.

540M: The Core i5-540M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-3.06 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.  

740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i3:

370M: The Core i3-370M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.4 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.


17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» 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.

3.8 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


77.62%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
