Reviews for the Asus N53JN
Source: Pocket Lint Archive.org version
The Asus N53J is something of a curate's egg; it's stylish, well built and powerful, with a superb spec - on paper. The keyboard, screen and battery life let it down and they're rather fundamental issues for a system at this price. But the sound quality is beaten only by the Dell XPS 15 (or Asus’s own upcoming NX90) and this is still an excellent multimedia notebook in many ways. If you're not planning to travel with the N53 and you watch movies more than you type, you may still find you're getting excellent bang for the buck.

Fantastic audio, matched by decent specifications, makes this a great multimedia choice. Let down by poor battery life and the steep price.

A laptop that sounds as good as it looks, but one that doesn't quite deliver on the basics.

The audio produced by most laptop speakers is pretty dire, but Asus' latest entertainment laptop, the N53Jn, is looking to change all that. It comes with an audio system that's been designed in partnership with Hi-Fi brand Bang & Olufsen. The Asus N53Jn is a great-looking laptop with an excellent sound system but, for an entertainment-focused device, its 15.6-inch screen is a little disappointing.

The Bang & Olufsen ICEpower speakers deliver handsomely on their promise, and the N53JN lacks little for performance or features, but a mediocre display is a real let down.
