Reviews for the Asus X50N
In terms of performance, this is clearly a budget laptop. The use of an AMD Turion 64 Mobile X2 processor and 2048MB of memory resulted in a MobileMark 2007 score of 111, which is less than half of what can be expected from the latest processors. However, for word processing, using the internet and basic ofﬁce tasks, this machine is more than usable. At this price, manufacturers tend to keep extras to a minimum, but you'll ﬁnd a DVD rewriter ﬁtted, as well as a webcam. Ports are kept to a minimum, but with four USB ports, ExpressCard, SD-card slot and VGA-port, you'll be able to add sufﬁcient peripherals. There is also a Wi-Fi switch, so you'll be able to preserve battery life when wireless LAN is not required.
