Reviews for the Asus N90SV

80% ASUS N90Sv-A2 18.4-Inch Laptop
Source: Justech'n English
After all is said and done I think this fits nicely into its niche, which is a non portable, non gaming, multimedia laptop. With the addition of a built-in tuner, IR port, and a remote control it would almost be perfect. I say almost because the price tag is a bit high. With a retail price of $1799 it may be a bit out of reach for the target market I mentioned above. In fact you could get a much more powerful nice desktop for that price, in fact I recently built a new desktop computer and it only cost me $1450. However, nobody pays retail and it is fairly easy to find this laptop for quite a bit less. With just a few minutes of searching on Amazon I was able to find this laptop (with smaller hard drives) for $1399, and an upgraded model (faster CPU and hard drives) for $1633. If you are in the market for a really large multimedia laptop, and you have $1399 or more to burn, you might want to check out the ASUS N90Sv.

70% Asus N90Sv A1
Source: CNet English
If you're easily impressed by size, you'll love the Asus N90Sv A2. Its 18.4-inch display is big and beautiful. Its dual hard drive setup gives 1TB of storage, and its 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 130M graphics card has no trouble delivering HD content to larger screens. It's a good-looking laptop, too. We just wish the N90Sv A2's overall performance were more on par with its large price tag. It's not an ideal multimedia laptop, but the Asus N90Sv A2 is a good-looking, well-appointed desktop replacement.

70% Asus N90SV-A2 review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Asus N90SV-A2 desktop replacement laptop is roughly the size of two 15in notebooks turned vertically and placed side by side. The Asus N90SV-A2 has an appealing price, but we'd rather have a faster chip set, faster RAM, and a faster GPU than so much hard drive space. The screen is impressively large, but not great in colour or contrast. And the overall notebook design is uninspired, with a fair amount of wasted space and an iffy touchpad.

The N90SV-A2 has a lot of surface appeal, but a closer look reveals a number of cut corners. The N90SV-A2 has an appealing price, but I'd rather have a faster chip set, faster RAM, and a faster GPU than so much hard drive space. The screen is impressively large, but not great in color or contrast. And the overall notebook design is uninspired, with a fair amount of wasted space and an iffy touchpad.

80% ASUS N90Sv-X1 18.4-inch Desktop Replacement Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
The ASUS N90Sv-X1 is certainly a desktop replacement laptop because of its large 18.4-inch display and 9.3 pound weight but it also offers solid performance for its $1400 price tag. The display is one of the best features of the laptop with its very bright and colorful output. For those looking for a laptop to be taken around periodically but a bit more performance, the N90Sv-X1 offers a good balance but you do have to live with fewer ports and a case that will frequently need cleaning.

60% ASUS N90 (SV-A2)
Source: Laptop Mag English
  A big-screen multimedia machine that packs Blu-ray and a whopping 1TB of storage, but weak speakers. Priced at $1,799, the ASUS N90 offers a huge high-def display for enjoying Blu-ray playback, an attractive design, and a massive amount of storage space. Given that this isn’t a gaming rig, we can live with the so-so graphics performance. But we think a sound system on an 18-inch notebook should offer a lot more volume. If pure performance is paramount, the MSI GT725 packs a 2.0-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Quad 9000 processor, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4850 graphics, Blu-ray, and a full HD display for $100 less—if you’re willing to downgrade to a speedy, yet much smaller 320GB, 7,200-rpm hard drive.

ASUS N90SV-A2 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall ASUS N90SV-A2 is a decent large format multimedia notebook, handling most modern games and HD video without any problem. It has great design with very good build quality, something that is becoming a common trend with ASUS notebooks these days. Feature selection is good, with the onboard Blu-ray player with this model, but the missing eSATA is a downside. While the price is high compared to similarly configured 17" notebooks, most online retailers are selling the lower model for $1,399, which drops the second hard drive and Blu-ray reader. With the 18.4" display this notebook could easily take the place of a small TV in a dorm room, playing HD movies and games in full 1080P resolution.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M: The GeForce GT 130M is a higher clocked GeForce 9650M GT with a slightly lower TDP (level of the 9600M GT). The performance differs according to the used type of memory (DDR3 up to 1066 MHz and DDR up to 600 MHz). PhysX is only supported in an SLI configuration.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T9550:

The T9550 is a middle class dual-core CPU of the Core 2 Duo line and similar to the P9600 (except for the higher TDP of the T9550 - 35 vs 25 W). The performance of the T9550 should be sufficient for most applications and games of 2009.

18.4":

This is a very large display size for laptops on a desk without mobile use.

4.1 kg:

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