Reviews for the Asus U46SV-WX044X
Source: PC Advisor
If it's a portable, low-cost entertainment-focused laptop you're looking for then the Asus U46SV will be right up your street. You'll have to make a few compromises on the specifications but at £699 it's hard to argue against. It'll also double up as a capable work tool and if you have to spend long periods of time away from a wall socket then the 10-hour battery life will impress.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:
Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).
