Reviews for the Asus P43SJ-VO006X
Worthy successor? Asus is now offering the P42JC's successor, the P43SJ. Apart from a new processor and a new graphics card not much has changed at first glance. But what does it look like in practical use?
Who’d have guessed? The speakers lack bass. You might even say they were faintly tinny. Good speaker quality on a laptop is rare. The Toshiba Qosmio X775 or the Dell XPS 15 are the best option here. Considering the lack of Optimus switching, the P43SJ’s battery life under moderate use gives three hours, which is not poor for a business machine.
