Reviews for the Asus U50F-RBBAG05

75% Asus U50F-RBBAG05
Source: CNet English
A funny thing happened on the way to the store this year: Asus went ahead and produced two very similar-looking, similarly priced and named, but subtly different, laptops for this year's retail roundup. We note this because they both belong in the mainstream category, and they are within $100 of each other. The Asus U50F is one of the best values for an Intel Core i3 laptop we've seen, offering a great all-around package for its price--save for shorter-than-average battery life.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
