Asus has up to date the K53SV notebook to give consumers the Asus K55VM, a capable Ivy Bridge all-rounder, furnished with a quad-core i7-3610QM CPU, a mid-range NVidia GeForce GT 630M graphics card, and a stable 8GB RAM.

The chassis is largely plastic only the wrist relaxation is built from steel, even though the ancient K53 was virtually all metal. Textured surfaces minimized smears and fingerprints and the hinges are stiff adequate for minimum lid teeter. Construct top quality is fantastic, and the Asus K55 feels robust and tough.

The K55 presents a reflective 15.6-inch 1366 x 768 pixel res show. A larger resolution panel - say 1600 x 900 - would have far better suited this kind of a able machine, but none is presented as an improve choice. Brightness of 192 nits is unimpressive, and the mediocre depth of blackness indicates the K55 only muster a weak 183 ne contrast ratio. That weak contrast and shiny display screen indicates outside use is hampered by reflections.

Connectivity is only normal - VGA and HDMI sockets, a pair of USB3 ports, a USB2 port, SD card reader and headphone and mic jacks. With this sort of amazing internals we could have hoped for a FireWire port, due to the fact the K55 undoubtedly has plenty of beneath the hood to aid a spot of online video-editing, and transferring info from a camcorder to the notebook was be a lot more quickly. Relocating on, connectivity will come through WiFi or Ethernet - Bluetooth is not bundled. A driver CD is a valuable element for re-installing the OS down the line. The 8GB RAM is expandable to 16GB.

The chiclet keyboard is not backlit, but the 15mm x 15mm keys give suitable typing, if crucial vacation is somewhat shallow. The numeric keypad will make sure you everyone who has to get the job done with spreadsheets or info entry. Multi-contact gestures are nicely-supported on the spacious 104mm x 73mm surface area place and responses sol republic are correct and prompt.

That i7-3610QM-GT630M pairing permit video clip enhancing, gaming or other demanding jobs with the Asus K55. All 4 cores, with their foundation clock frequency of two.3GHz, are increase-ready to three.1GHz and with the emphatic 8GB RAM plans load snappily and operate promptly. All round efficiency is 30% greater than with the past-gen K53, inspite of the reality that the K55′s GT630M GPU is almost identical to the GT540M found in its predecessor. But wherever Asus has truly hamstrung the efficiency of the K55 is in its challenging push - the 750GB Hitachi HDD spins at the slower 5400rpm than the 7200rpm drives we would count on of an Ivy Bridge QM chip.

The Windows 7 overall performance index highlights the challenging disk as the program bottleneck. That 2GB mid-range graphics card allows the K55 deliver respectable gaming performance most titles run easily at large options. That means everyday workloads are a walk in the park for the Asus K55 - ultra-multi-tabbed searching, photograph-enhancing, Hd playback on a whole Hi-def display, and so on. Asus IceCool technology aims to retain the K55 notebook great, and so palm relaxation and foundation area booth continue to be properly inside of comfortable stages of warmth era.

The Altec Lansing speaker system makes loud quantity, if a little bit lacking in mid tones. Exterior speakers alter all that. Optimus switching shutting down the graphics card when the integrated Intel HD4000 can cope assistance K55 supply almost 4 several hours of WiFi-browsing - not outstanding but satisfactory for most people.

The display screen disqualifies the Asus K55 from expert artistry, but as an all-rounder it is extremely properly geared up.
