Reviews for the Asus N551JK-CN112D

80% Asus N551JK review – a revised 15 inch multimedia laptop
Source: TLBHD English
The N551JK is a multimedia 15 incher to consider. Hardware wise, it's not a lot different than last year's N550JK, but Asus tweaked the screen, the speakers and the cooling system and the result is an evolved product that should satisfy most of your needs. solid built, excellent matte display, good keyboard and trackpad, capable configuration, loud and punchy sound system, runs cool. bit heavy and bulky, small battery, poor wi-fi performance, noisy when idle.

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.
