Asus K72F-TY011V review


Ample performance and strong build quality from this desktop replacement

Good screen ; Performance ; Battery life ; Storage

Heavy ; Some flex around disk drive

Asus K72DR-A1


Sometimes you need a basic second PC. The Asus K72DR-A1 may just fit the bill: This budget desktop replacement laptop ships with a Blu-ray drive and decent audio performance, making it suitable for showing your kids a movie of their own while you curl...

Excellent multimedia machine ; Superb keyboard makes for easy typing

Underwhelming performance, particularly in games ; Battery life is quite limited

Asus delivers a fine desktop replacement, provided that your needs are fairly undemanding. It does offer superb multimedia capabilities, however, and the price is right.

Review Asus K72JK-TY001V Notebook


Bread and Butter. Asus' mainstream models are labeled K-series. T

Quiet and cool; Good battery life for 17"; Good application performance; Very low idle energy requirement

Weak 3D performance; Reflections on TFT; Only few connections; Contrast poor TFT; No multi-touch zoom

Acer's Aspire 7740G: The 17.3 incher with a strong processor is looking for customers with a price of 700 euro. Acer's Aspire 8942G: It's even possible in 18.4 inch and with a stronger HD 5650. Price starts at 900 Euro. A lot more performance but...

Asus K72F-TY011V


Excellent value for money, big screen with strong colours and deep blacks (although not full HD, gives HD output to a TV via HDMI), large well-spaced keyboard, ideal desktop replacement for general users

Screen viewing angle limited, shiny case gets fingerprint marks easily

Good. For a PC.


I think it is a great PC for the price. If I had $1500 I would've got a Macbook Pro but this was less than half :)

It looks good, has a large screen which is awesome, runs pretty fast for the most part

It gets a little hot. I have to have the charger plugged in 24/7 ( I think I messed it up though..). It can't really handle huge programs, I am a music producer, and it just can't handle all the things that are going on, it clips and runs slow

Not worth the price...1 USB broken out of the box


Got it payed for from my work. If I used my own money i'd be a bit upset... I recommend NOT to buy this laptop. It's worth 600 beans and not a penny more.

Nice Screen ; Fairly slim for a 17.3" notebook ; Runs good once you ditch all the bloatware and tweak ; windows 7 ; Hard Drive comes partition well C/D, 120/330gb

Keyboard is cheap style ; Touchpad requires FORCE to work properly. I use a ; trackball so no biggy 4 me ; 1 of the 4 usb ports does not work, returns error code: 43. may be fixable, haven't spent the time on it yet..BUT out of the box the thing should...

Does everything i ask


This was a great buy, better than the best buy i ever made, lol. It was intended for entertainment, it does much more. Win 7 is working well and the machine is running a business. Thanks Newegg and ASUS!

Low cost, cool running, fast, quiet, BIG screen, decent battery life... seems to do everything i ask it to with no issues. Plenty of RAM, ports, power, what more could i ask for in this price range

Won't read my mind or ask me what i mean when i'm not sure
