Asus N56VM 15.6in notebook review

 

A good journalist always tries to avoid clichés, but sometimes when I'm writing laptop reviews I do find myself reaching for a few stock phrases, such as: the speakers are crap. Imagine my relief, then, to discover that the speakers on the Asus N56VM...

You are paying a bit of a premium for the 2.1 speakers, HD screen and Blu-ray drive, so if you simply need a fast 15.6in laptop then there are obviously cheaper options available. However, the N56VM is a very capable multimedia laptop that will earn...

ASUS N56VM Ivy Bridge laptop review

 

ASUS N56VM review: Use this third generation Intel Core i7-based laptop for office work, gaming and other tough tasks

Performance ; Good user comfort ; Matte screen

Touchpad could be a little better ; SD card slot hard to access ; Budget Wi-Fi module

The ASUS N56V offers good performance, lots of useful features and a great level of user comfort. We enjoyed using it very much and think it's a good unit to consider if you want fast application performance, as well as the ability to run modern games.

Mobile Ivy Bridge and ASUS N56VM Preview

 

Intel is firing a massive artillery barrage at its competition today with the release of desktop and mobile Ivy Bridge processors. Last year's Sandy Bridge gave Intel a huge lead in the performance segment of the market, a lead that AMD has yet to...

From the moment I first opened the package and pulled out the N56VM, I have been impressed with ASUS’ latest hardware. The silver palm rest is a nice change of pace from all the black laptops I’ve tested during the past few years, the keyboard is...

Cheaper. After the review of the N56VZ with the powerful GeForce GT 650M, we will now have a look at the cheaper model with a GeForce GT 630M.

matte surfaces, 4x USB 3.0, Keyboard light, bright, matte FullHD display with decent viewing angles, good sound due to external subwoofer, The matte and bright FullHD Display

loose LAN port, inconvenient location of interfaces, poor click pad, DisplayPort and separate mouse buttons

Asus N56VM

 

Asus' N56VM is quite a decent laptop, so it's a huge shame that it's been lumped with a lower-quality screen that significantly impacts the user experience.

Great keyboard and touchpad. Good performance for mainstream. Great audio for a laptop. Matte screen. Backlit keyboard.

Screen text isn't as sharp as it should be despite ClearType tweaking. Visible vertical lines and graininess indicate a lower quality panel. No Bluetooth.

Asus' N56VM is quite a decent laptop, and so it's a huge shame it's been lumped with a lower-quality screen that significantly impacts the user experience. If you can find the full HD option it may be better, but we'd bypass this one.
