The NX90Q-A1 from Asus is a desktop replacement notebook with tons of multimedia features, including an 18.4-inch widescreen 1080p HD display and some powerful speakers. You also get a quad-core processor and some really powerful nVidia graphics.

The Asus NX90JQ-A1 ($2,530 street) is a media center laptop. While you might be gawking at the full 1080p, 18.4-inch widescreen if it were another laptop, in this one, your eyes are fixed on the mammoth, side-mounted speakers. Merely looking at the laptop is entertaining, as flashes of the classic Maxell commercials with the iconic Blown-Away Guy come to mind. Indeed, the speakers, co-developed by Bang and Olufsen ICEpower, are the main attraction. But there are plenty of other features worth noting, including the dual touchpads, top-of-the-line Nvidia graphics, and a quad-core processor. Serious audiophiles have been waiting for a laptop like this, but like all specialty products, the NX90JQ-A1 will cost you dearly.

Comment

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).

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

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


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.


18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. 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.

4.4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit 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. 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.
