Reviews for the Asus NX90J

80% Asus NX90
Source: Digital Versus English

Asus is obviously looking to go somewhere new with the NX90. A multimedia PC par excellence, the Asus NX90 offers unheard of audio quality, a high performance configuration and good overall ease-of-use. Unfortunately its screen is particularly disappointing and some of the design choices suffer due to priority given to how the machine looks.

80% Asus NX90J laptop
Source: Tech2.in.com English
When I first saw the machine, it looked like an over-sized portable DVD player kept up-side-down. I didn't really like it, mainly because of the size-difference in the screen and chassis, and of course the all-glossy body. But, if you look at it this way, are you really going to use it as a “laptop”? This machine is more of an-all-one PC in the form factor of a laptop. And besides, when I used it, ran the benchmarks, played HD movies, it actually feels like a cinema on your desk (or lap). Also, as I type this review, it feels like typing on a regular desktop keyboard. So I'd say that, it gets a five on five in terms of functionality and performance. In terms of looks, you'll need to see for yourself to be double sure. We've received mixed opinions.

A stunning, powerful desktop replacement, if not quite the last word in laptop audio it claims to be.

ASUS NX90JQ: A New Category of Infotainment Notebook
Source: Inside HW English
The natural surroundings of NX90JQ is the centre of a multimedia, highly stylized home, where its uncommon design won't stand out from the rest of the devices. The price is therefore adequate and well-balanced, and the embodiment of the Infotainment concept and the new perception of notebook computers definitely deserves the best InsideHW can award.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M: The GeForce GT 335M offers 72 shader cores (compared to the 48 of the GT 330M) and is based on the GT215 core (GTS 350M).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» 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.  


720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


18.40":

This is a very large display size for laptops on a desk without mobile use.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


4.8 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. 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).


77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
