The Asus N552V Review – Yup, Another Laptop!
Source: Tech Girl English
All in all the Asus N552V is a great big machine. Perfect for someone not looking to spend a small fortune on a Macbook or Asus Zenbook 3. It is the ideal laptop to take to work and then jam a few games on over the weekend without breaking the bank (it will set you back roughly R20 000). I only wish it was lighter as the size and weight become noticeable if you’re lugging it around in a handbag or shoulder slung laptop bag.

100% Asus VivoBook Pro N552VW review: Huge power, low price
Source: PC Mag English
There’s a lot to like about the Asus VivoBook Pro N552VW. It’s good value considering the specifications on offer, and it’s a halfway-decent gaming laptop, too, although that’s not its main purpose in life. It’s just as quick as the considerably more expensive Dell XPS 15, too, even if its design doesn’t quite live up to the same expectations.

Asus N552VW review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
As a gaming and multimedia laptop, the Asus N552VW is a decent machine with excellent overall performance and a decent high-resolution screen. If that’s all you’re after, it’s a great buy. However, it’s unrefined elsewhere. The keyboard and touchpad are merely average and the speakers don’t excel. Battery life is also poor and the plastic shell is beginning to look dated. In short, this laptop is entirely focused on performance, and if that’s your primary motivator, you’ll be very satisfied.

There’s a lot to like about the Asus VivoBook Pro N552VW. It’s good value considering the specifications on offer, and it’s a better gaming laptop than the mid-range ROG GL552VW without even really trying to be a gaming laptop. It's just as quick as the considerably more expensive Dell XPS 15, too, even if its design doesn't quite live up to the same expectations.

Asus N552VX Review – Not The Update We’Ve Expected But Adds Some Essential Features
Source: Gear Open English
Once again ASUS has made an excellent multimedia laptop out of the N-series. The N552VX is all that we hoped it would be but with some considerable drawbacks compared to the good old N551. The chassis is updated with lower profile and lighter clamshell while keeping the already excellent keyboard and touchpad design. Another similarity between the N551 and N552 is the good IPS display. It features way above average properties for a good multimedia and gaming experience with the only drawback being the existence of PWM across all brightness levels. However, our Health-Guard profile can be used to limit the PWM to some extent and also improve the visibility in dark areas of an image.

ASUS N552VX review – not the update we’ve expected but adds some essential features
Source: Laptop Media English
The bottom line is that the ASUS N552VX is still one of the best multimedia/high-performance laptop in its class. Still, we suggest you consider the much lower priced models from HP and Lenovo – the HP Pavilion 15 and Lenovo Ideapad 700 – both of which offer the same hardware/performance, same storage options and much better battery life and portability. Nevertheless, the N552VX still holds an edge over them when it comes to build quality and display quality. So in the end, it really depends on your type of work, usage, and priorities.

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).

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.
