Reviews for the Asus N551VW-FY196T

ASUS N551VW review – although the N552 is around the corner, the new N551 is still affordable, powerful and perfect for multimedia
Source: Laptop Media English
The refreshed ASUS N551NVW looks like a logical solution between the old N551 and the N552. It offers sleek design and good build quality with our only complaint being the big weight (2.7 kg) and thick profile (32.2 mm). We are also pretty pleased with the keyboard and touchpad performance. Both seem to be responsive accurate and comfortable. Good words come out for the picture quality of the IPS panel and the powerful hardware featuring 6th generation Intel Core i7 CPU, GTX 960M GPU, and, 8GB DDR4 RAM. We do have to mention, though, the use of PWM (pulse-width modulation) from 0 to 99% screen brightness. The good news is that the frequency of the emitted light is 20.6 kHz, which reduces the negative effect on the eyesight. When we add the good loudspeakers and external subwoofer into the mix, the notebook becomes perfect for multimedia content on the go.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M 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.
