Not all laptops are designed to be carted around town. Some are supposed to sit in your room looking pretty, playing movies and music. The 18.4-inch Asus NX90Jq laptop offers decent specs and a good screen for media playback. At such a high price, though, your money will almost certainly be better spent elsewhere.

Honestly, the ASUS NX90 is a great desktop-replacement notebook. It’s extremely stylish, has a gorgeous screen and great speakers. When opened up, it feels more like a desktop than a laptop. The only thing holding it back from greatness is the keyboard. In my opinion, ASUS should ditch the dual track pads, just put a massive one in the center on the palm rest, and have a full sized keyboard on the top, with more spacing between keys. Slightly raised buttons with backlighting and the higher than normal price-tag will be justified on an otherwise great package. And let’s not even get started on the nonsense 32-bit OS which won’t use more than 4GB of ram. At AED 9k (USD 2,450) I expect everything to be in excellent form. The price may have been justified for the newer Sandy Bridge model (NX90SN) that come with the Core i7-2630QM CPU and Nvidia GT 540M GPU, but with these specs, the price seems a bit too high.

You hardly need it with the brightness of the screen, but we're surprised not to see a backlit keyboard on a system at this price. We'd rather it came with a Core i5 to improve battery life, but we're not sure how often you'd take it away from the power socket anyway. But to make the high price worthwhile for anything more than sheer style and desirability, you want to be using this to replace a TV, Blu-ray and possibly a stereo system as well. If you don't want to spend as much, the Dell XPS 15 gives you better value, but the NX90 outshines it in most ways - as you'd expect from a luxury system.

The Asus NX90Jq is a well-specified machine which packs a punch in terms of audio performance. Its striking design suggests it would be ideal as the centrepiece of a home entertainment centre, albeit a relatively expensive choice. Given the battery life, weight and balance issues, together with those dual trackpads, and I can't say I would be tempted lug it around it as my day-to-day laptop, but you'd certainly create an impression if you did.

Performance is good, but not all-conquering, and for those with serious multimedia interests, such as gamers and serious movie editors, there's more power on offer elsewhere for cheaper. For a multimedia machine, the screen brightness isn't quite up to scratch.

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.  


740QM:

The Core i7-740QM is a high-end quad-core CPU for laptops (in 2010) with a relative small base clock rate and a high Turbo Boost max frequency of 2.93 GHz (for one core). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow clocked quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 740QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.

18.4":

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.


4.4 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).


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
