Reviews for the Asus M60J

100% Asus M60J review
Source: Stuff TV English
When it arrived on the desktop scene, Intel's Core i7 levelled the opposition. With enough power to embarrass Intel's own Core 2, not to mention AMD's efforts, Core i7 set the benchmark and set it high. Now it's set to repeat the trick in the laptop market with the Asus M60. Pricey, but the lightening Core i7 performance is worth it, even if it does have a slight hit on battery life.

100% Asus M60J: Core i7 powered laptops don't get much better than this
Source: PC Authority English
Core i7 is, then, far more suited to laptops than anyone might have imagined. Price may yet prove to be a stumbling block, especially for the quad-core models, but we can keep our fingers crossed that the forthcoming dual-core CPUs will bring all the i7's benefits - Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading included - to laptops of all prices, shapes and sizes.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 240M: The GeForce GT 240M is the successor of the GT 130M / 9600M and has now 48 instead of 32 shader cores. Therefore, the performance should be noticeable better. Because of the 40nm process, the TDP is still 23 Watt.

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 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.  


720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


16":

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

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.3 kg:

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


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


92.6%: Indeed, this rating is very goodl There do not exist many notebook models, which are rated better.
