Reviews for the Asus N551JK-CN166H

85% Asus N551JK-CN166H Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Silver entertainer. Asus introduces an overall well-designed, representative all-rounder in stylish aluminum looks to the upper-range for approximately 1000 Euros (~$1134). It is even possible to risk a game owing to the GeForce GTX 850M. Only the choice of processor is questionable. Our in-depth report reveals how the device fares in the single tests.

Comment

Model: There is no doubt that Asus has the capability to produce beautiful and powerful laptops and the Asus N551JK-CN166H follows in that lineage. The cover is made from aluminium with the iconic spun metal design surrounding the Asus branding. There is a sense of elegance and luxury with the dark grey cover and dual tone chassis. Even the interior is textured with radial dimple pattern around a silver island-style keyboard. The 15.6 inch display has an aspect ratio of 16:9 and uses IPS technology. As a result, clarity and colors are top-notch.

The beautiful display is supplemented with awesome audio from SonicMaster and even includes a portable subwoofer with professional grade sound-processing from MaxxAudio. The hardware on-board consists of an Intel Core i5-4200H processor clocked at 2.8 GHz, 8 GB DDR3L 1600 MHz RAM, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX850M GPU with 2 GB VRAM and a 1 TB hard drive with a 24 GB SanDisk SSD combo.

Needless to say that the Asus N551JK-CN166H is as capable as it is beautiful. Other features include three USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port, a Display port and a card reader.
