84% Review Asus P42JC Notebook | Notebookcheck
Strong Business Partner. Asus doesn't yet have much to offer in the business field. That's why we are even more curious about how the P43JC at hand will score. The notebook attracts attention with a very good manufacturing, high-end materials and not least with good performance and a useable battery life.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).

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.


450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

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.

2.3 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
