Reviews for the Asus F50Sv-A2

Price tag for ASUS F50Sv is somewhere around 900€ which is relatively high, but with good reasons. First, there is Blu-ray optical device that doesn’t come cheap (no, it comes expensive). Second is top of the range Intel Core 2 Duo CPU that also has important influence on the final price. If you find this model with DVD combo, slower CPU and significantly lower price, it will make ASUS F50Sv a very interesting purchase, above all, because of its exceptional quality build.

Sixteen-inch laptops comprise a growing category, perhaps because they sit between the semiportable, 15-inch, mainstream systems and the heavy, 17- and 18-inch models that are essentially desk-bound machines with hinged screens. The $1,249 Asus F50SV-A2 packs a Blu-ray drive and a new mainstream Nvidia graphics chip into a relatively on-the-go package that's lighter than gaming beasts, but heavier than a standard laptop. While it's a Blu-ray-equipped 16-inch laptop with good gaming muscle, the Asus F50SV-A2's design left us cold.

ASUS F50SV-A2 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The ASUS F50SV-A2 gave strong performance in our benchmarks and real-life game tests, thanks mostly to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M graphics card. I really enjoyed the design and great build quality, which should allow the notebook to last until it is no longer fast enough to run the latest software. Overall I think a perfect change might be swapping the Blu-ray drive for a higher resolution screen, but I may be biased already owning a Blu-ray player. If you are in the market for a higher performing multimedia notebook, check out the ASUS F50SV, but make sure you are always within range of a power outlet.

This inexpensive 16-inch multimedia notebook packs speedy performance, gaming punch, and smooth Blu-ray playback. Just keep the power cord handy. ASUS provides consumers with a strong 16-inch notebook with solid graphics, speedy performance, and the latest in high-definition playback for $1,149. While we don’t expect this machine to stray too far from an outlet, its battery life is rather limited compared to other 16-inch systems. If you’re considering purchasing this machine, it’s worth taking a look at the Acer Aspire 6930G-6723, which while heavier and not as powerful, gets double the runtime and has a Blu-ray drive for $150 less. Still, those looking for a 16-inch notebook with strong performance and stunning Blu-ray playback should consider the ASUS F50Sv-A2.

Asus’s latest entertainment notebook is both affordable and effective. It offers everything you’d need for gaming, movie watching, and video editing for a very reasonable price of $1,149. It’s not the fastest performer on the market, but it’s far from slow and delivers enough power to serve your media needs. While the F50SV-A2 lacks some of the sex appeal of other entertainment notebooks, it offers a nice balance of features and performance for the price.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M: Slower clocked GeForce GT 130M with the same features (55nm) and a lower power consumption. Successor of the 9600M GS and about as fast as the 9600M GT. 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.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

16":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

2.85 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
