Asus UL50Vg - 15.6in Laptop

 

With an overclocked low-voltage processor and switchable hybrid graphics, can Asus' 15.6in laptop win us over?

Moving down to the multi-touch touchpad, it's large and responsive. Its heavily textured surface does provide a good feel and differentiates it from its surroundings, but at the same time is literally wearing on your fingertips. The chromed rocker...

Asus UL50VT review

 

Power may be a little lacking, but the fantastic battery life certainly isn't

Fantastic battery life ; Turbo boost feature ; Discreet and dedicated graphics ; Build quality

Performance

Although it's not the most sprightly laptop on the market, the solid build and great battery life suit those looking for a machine for use all day

Asus UL50AT review

 

Fantastic mobility and high-speed network access, but build quality is poor

Highly portable ; Fantastic battery life ; HDMI port ; 4-in-1 card reader ; Excellent keyboard ; Impressive storage and connectivity

Poor build quality ; Low quality feel ; Limited graphics power ; Colours are slightly muted

The UL50AT is an ideal machine for staying productive on the move and offers fantastic connectivity, without needing to sacrifice its screen size or performance. Make sure you consider what is most important to you before buying as its build quality...

Asus UL50Ag review

 

A slim design and an outstanding battery life of ten and a half hours are undermined by the flimsy keyboard and sticky touchpad.

Asus UL50VG review

 

Chucking out your desktop is all the rage these days? And the Asus UL50VG pitches itself as the ideal compromise between a laptop's portability and a full on desktop PC's grunt. So is it worth slinging your ageing machine for this 17-inch colossus?...

Stacked with features, reasonably priced

Multitouch pad isn't the best, newer models on there way

A decent desktop replacement, but we wnat Full HD, Blu-ray and new Intel chips for our money

Review: Asus UL50vs notebook

 

A decent 15.6in screen notebook with CPU overclocking, but grainy display and high price tag could put off some buyers

Large screen; good Nvidia GPU; a bit of CPU overclocking

Grainy display; low resolution screen; keyboard off centre; high price

The UL50vs is a decent 15.6in screen notebook with slight CPU overclocking capabilities, a nice aesthetic finish, and good graphical display capabilities that the majority of people will find acceptable.

Asus UL50AG review

 

A slimline desktop replacement with a mighty battery life, the UL50 could be the laptop you've been waiting for.

The big question is whether a 15.6in laptop can remain usable with such little raw power, but if your needs are undemanding – and superb battery life is more important to you than ultimate performance – this is a fine choice.

Asus UL50vs

 

A costly notebook with potential

Large screen, good Nvidia GPU, a bit of CPU overclocking

Grainy display appearance

the Asustek superior mobility series is the UL50vs in its range of 15-inch notebooks, which boast 12 hours of battery life and great graphical abilities with unlimited possibilities, or so the marketing blurb reads.

Asus UL50VT-RBBBK05 review: Asus UL50VT-RBBBK05

 

Asus UL50VT-RBBBK05

Nvidia switchable graphics; thin frame; good battery life.

Underpowered processor for the price.

With switchable Nvidia graphics and a thin design, the Asus UL50VT-RBBBK05 sacrifices power for longer battery life, while still managing to be a gaming-capable notebook. For its price, though, you could buy a laptop with a faster Core i3 CPU.

Asus UL50VF-A1

 

The 15-inch Asus UL50VF-A1 CULV-equipped laptop takes advantage of two GPUs, which can switch seamlessly with a new Nvidia technology called Optimus.

Two GPUs. Nvidia Optimus can seamlessly switch between the two GPUs. Excellent battery life. Full size keyboard and numeric keypad. Sleek looks. Lightweight.

Processor is sluggish for a 15-inch system. Mouse buttons scratches easily and are tough to press.
