In a world that has been dominated by tablets can notebooks make a comeback? Asus feels it can with its classy metallic design, but will this make consumers want to go out and buy this notebook?
The Asus K53E has a nice metallic design, the black top gives it a nice Chic and sexy look the 15.6 inch HD screen is not the brightest thing Iâ€™ve seen but it still has that nice crisp look to it. The weight on the K53E is 5.73lbs not too bad but is still a little too heavy for me to carry around.
On the right side on the netbook you have a USB port, HDMI port, Ethernet port, and your power plug, On your left you have your headphone jack, microphone port, two USB ports and your DVD drive (Blu-Ray DVD Combo is optional).
Asus K53E has a Core i5-2520M 2.5GHz Processor running at 2.3GHz and backed up by 4GB RAM , Intel HD Graphics and a 0.3-megapixel webcam, you also have 3D graphics I tried the graphics using photos and videos which came out pretty good. Performance was quick and pleasant with general computing tasks I experienced quick loading times and very little pausing when switching between tabs during multitasking.
While having two tabs on and watching a movie the battery lasted for about 3 hours if I just surfed the web I got 4 hours before I had to plug it in. The Keyboard is to my liking its high and the keyboard is nicely spread across the body .
IceCool Technololgy makes your PC cool and comfortable even during the longest computing sessions. Exclusive dual-sided motherboard design places hot components on the underside and away from users. Combined with heat pipes and vents, palm rests and typing surfaces stay cooler.
Genuine Windows 7 Starter comes with the Asus K53E notebook, but you can easily upgrade to any Windows 7 operating system.
The Asus K53E is a great Notebook for its price, it proved to be a very strong notebook ,the ASUS K53E notebook does have some limitations though as it’s not the perfect notebook.
For a 15.6-inch laptop I found the 1366×768 screen resolution to be lacking. The speakers on the notebook were awful if I put it too loud it became muffled and couldnâ€™t hear a thing. If youâ€™re looking at this notebook to be used for gaming, itâ€™s not, but it is a good notebook for just basic day to day work and the price is great.
Would I pick this notebook up? For $349.99 and with a Core i5-2520M 2.5GHz Processor Hell yeah, it may have some flaws but this a great price for a strong notebook.
