Reviews for the Asus G551JK

70% Asus ROG G551JK review: At Rs 82,999 offers a good package, but there is scope for improvement
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The entire package is priced at Rs 82,999. While there are better graphics solutions available, the price point goes up accordingly. But in the price you are also getting accessories which you would have had to spend money on, so it is not such a bad deal. Considering the Alienware 17 and ASUS G750JX cost over a lakh – considering their flagship specifications, the Asus G551JK looks like it is reasonably priced for someone who wants a full HD gaming laptop but not the extreme top-of-the-line features. If you want to save even more money, then you can check out the Dell 7000 series laptop or the Lenovo Y50.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
4710HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.5 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.5 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
