Reviews for the Asus N73JQ-TZ087V

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.

Comment

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

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

17.3":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


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.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


82.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
