Reviews for the Asus N82JQ-A1
The N82JQ is a powerful and fairly well built notebook by Asus that can handle any task thrown at it. Despite having a 14" screen, it seems to have all the strengths and weaknesses of a standard desktop replacement. While Asus did manage to make the N82JQ one of the most powerful 14" notebooks around, prospective buyers should be aware that the computer is most in its element while plugged in and being used by one user.

If notebooks were cars, the $1,199 ASUS N82JQ would be a Mustang--great performance, but very poor mileage. Even though the ASUS N82JQ has plenty of muscle, its short battery life and high heat levels leave a lot to be desired. It's a bit expensive, too: the Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 ($999) offers similar performance and endurance, not to mention better media controls. We suggest waiting for the Nvidia Optimus model of this notebook, whose lower price and longer endurance will make it a far more compelling system.

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).
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.
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
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.
50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
