Class-leading performance, Multimedia-oriented features
Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.
Big storage capacity, attractive case, backlit keyboard
The Asus N550JV-CN201H convinces with a decent system and gaming performance. Although the CPU significantly throttles (down to 800 MHz) under full load, you will hardly experience this in practice. The benchmark results are as expected. In addition, the notebook features a bright, contrast-rich and matte IPS display and a big storage capacity and can read Blu-ray disks. The battery life is also appropriate for a notebook with that much performance.
Attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities
The slow hard drive is a cost-cutting weakness in a laptop costing almost £1000, and leaves it looking expensive in a crowded market. Nonetheless, the N550JV is an attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities that could make it suited to presentations at work, or entertainment at home.
Very good display, Good program performance
Buyers of the HP Envy dv6-7202eg receive a powerful multimedia notebook packed to the brim with modern technology. This laptop can complete any task with ease and look good while doing it. We especially like the high contrast Full HD display with great viewing angle stability and matte surface. The packet will set you back around 1,199 Euros (~$1570) - a high price, but there are alternatives.
High Resolution Display, Hybrid Hard Drive and Blu-ray Drive
HP's Envy laptops may lack their distinctive styles that set them apart from the companies other consumer laptops but it still offers a solid experience for those looking at an all around laptop. It features some strong performance that lets it do well in pretty much but it still isn't quite as suited for dedicated gaming as other laptops. The only other bit of disappointment was the storage which isn't quite as fast as ultrabooks with their dedicated SSD cache rather than hybrid solutions.
Great Business Computer
This is a great computer for business just because of one feature alone, the finger print reader. I like this alot, you can have it "read" any one of your 10 fingers. I suggest at least two, one on each hand in case you can't use one of the hands.
That said this is a nice laptop. The keys are easy to press and quiet. Mine luckily came with Windows 7, I had reviewed Windows 8 (W8) at a large retailer with the initials B.B. I was not impressed with W8.
I am a computer science student so I am pretty well versed when it comes to computers. I know my hardware, can write operating systems, and am constantly programming. I began searching for laptops because I needed a more powerful one. I play a few games so I also wanted something able to power through some graphics. This laptop has pretty amazing specs, especially for the price. Windows 8 is pretty intuitive once you get used to it, so don't let that defer you from getting this laptop.
Acceptable noise level, Good sound
You need to pay particular attention to the price when buying the Acer Aspire V3-771G. There are great differences between the inexpensive entry-level configuration and the 'premium devices' like our test sample. Looking at the current street prices, it ranges between EUR 595(~$750) to EUR 1299(~$1650). The differences are dependent on the installed CPU, GPU, mass storage, RAM and optical drive.
Affordable Price, Strong General and 3D Performance
Acer's Aspire V3 771G is a surprisingly affordable 17-inch laptop with some good performance. At just around $900, it is one of the least expensive laptops on the market to feature both a quad core Intel i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor. These combined make the system even capable as an affordable mobile gaming option. The system does have to sacrifice a few items in order to be affordable though.
A fast and affordable laptop, with a few small nitpicky drawbacks
I'm very impressed with the performance so far. As a test, I simultaneously ran a dozen windows in Google Chrome, an HD movie, BitTorrent, Warcraft 3, Photoshop, and Microsoft Word. The processor gadget in Windows showed that the processor was running at only 4 percent. It handles every game I've tested on the highest settings. So far I've played Call of Duty 2, Grand Theft Auto 4, Fallout 3, Warcraft and Borderlands. It also handles video editing 1080p HD movies without any lag.
Great graphics performance, Comfortable keyboard
For a sub-$1,000 15-inch laptop, the Acer Aspire V3 delivers the goods. A quad-core Ivy Bridge CPU and NVIDIA Kepler graphics give it multitasking and gaming chops, while the keyboard provides a comfortable typing experience. Sure, the display has a plain ol' 1,366 x 768 pixel count and the whole package weighs a backpack-unfriendly 5.8 pounds, but you at least get a DVD drive, strong selection of ports and decent audio.
Strong Performance From Quad Core Processor
HP continues their trend of offering a more affordable performance computer with the Pavilion dv6 compared to their Envy 14. In fact, the quad core processor and 8GB of memory give it better general performance and the trackpad with dedicated buttons is very welcome. The downside is that the laptop doesn't offer the same level of polish or storage capabilities. It is also marred by a mismatched aluminum and plastic design as well as lots of unwanted installed software.
The Acer Aspire 5755G's processor isn't ground breaking, but its graphics card delivers superb gaming performance. Acer has made a right decision by opting for an i5 over an i7. This move has enabled it to pack in a great graphics card, while keeping the cost reasonable. What's more, the battery life is great considering the notebook's impressive specs. Finally, at the street price of Rs 44,620, this laptop is ideal for folks looking out for a mid-range multimedia monster.
