Reviews for the Asus K93SV-YZ094V
Source: Notebookreview.com Archive.org version
Das Asus K93S hinterlässt einen seltsam zwiespältigen Eindruck. Kann man es mögen, dieses zyklopische Gerät? Nicht, wenn man unterwegs mit ihm ist. Selbst ein paar Minuten mit dem Vier-Kilo-Trumm auf dem Schoß, und man verliert die Lust. Der Mitreisende am Vierertisch im ICE bedankt sich herzlich für diese überaus großzügige Blickschranke und Begrenzung seiner Ablagemöglichkeiten.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:
Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
18.40": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only a few laptops are in this weight class because the mobility is rather limited due to the high weight.
