ASUS K52Jr (K52JR-SX070V) notebook

 

ASUS K52Jr review: A 15.6in, Core i3 notebook with good graphics performance for the price

Good graphics performance for the price, stylish, good touchpad

Squished number pad, reflective screen with narrow vertical viewing angles, battery life could be a little better, no Bluetooth

The ASUS K52Jr (K52JR-SX070V) is a fine desktop replacement-style notebook with a manageable footprint that allows it to also be transported relatively easily between home and the classroom or office. It possesses good graphics power for its price and...

Asus K52JT-XT1R

 

The well-equipped Asus K52JT-XT1R desktop replacement laptop packs in a quad-core processor, dedicated graphics card, and sub-$1000 price tag.

Quad-core processor. Dedicated AMD graphics. Big 640GB hard drive.

Jumpy touchpad. Chokes on high-end games.

Review Asus K52JR-SX059V Notebook

 

Core i3 Office Assistant. Intel's new processors are infiltrating

Quiet and cool; Good performance; Bright display

Very low contrast; Obtuse viewing angles; Yielding keys; High pitched sound; Short battery life

Core i3 alternatives with a stronger graphic are currently sparse. Gamers should look at Samsung's R580 Hawk (Nvidia GT 330M) or Dell's Studio 1558. Both have a stronger Core i5 processor. The Deviltech Fire DTX with ATI's newest HD 5650 is also worth...

Asus P52F-SO034X

 

A lovely machine and great looking. I replaced the HDD with a SSD (240gb OCZ Vertex 2) and it's now the fastest laptop I've ever used in my life (about twenty pass through my hands every year). I would recommend doing this to everybody if you are...

Keyboard flexes slightly when I type which is my only criticism, oh ye, and the ASUS website is'nt the best when it comes to downloading updates. It's a very slow and clunky website. The chassis shows fingerprints quite badly - needs a wipe fairly...

Asus K52JK-SX031V

 

Excellent all-rounder and fast performance.

Would have liked an extra USB port and Firewire connection. Had quite a problem trying to make own restore discs so maybe a restore disc supplied as standard would be helpful
