Reviews for the Asus G551JM-CN013D

80% Asus G551JM / G551 review – a fair priced 15.6 inch gaming laptop
Source: Ultrabook Review English Archive.org version
If you only have about $1300 to spend on a powerful multimedia/gaming computer with modern specs and features, the Asus G551JM should be towards the top of your list. This laptop isn't perfect, but its strong points clearly outweighs its numerous, but less important, flaws. The G551 is not without rivals though and those include the Asus N551 and Zenbook GX500 models, the Lenovo Y50 or the Acer Aspire V15 Nitro. And then you get the bigger 17 inch machines, like the Asus G771 (a larger version of the unit tested here, which I reviewed a while ago) or the G751 series, but also the much sleeker gaming ultrabooks, including the MSI GS60 Ghost Pro, for instance. Make sure to check them out before deciding what’s best for you.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» 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.


15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

2.7 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


81%: This rating is slightly above average, there are somewhat more devices with worse ratings. However, clear purchase recommendations look different.
