Reviews for the Asus N552VW-FI043T
Source: Tech Girl
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.

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.

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.

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.
