Laptops are sold as never before, and our claim to the small miracle boxes increasing every day. We'd pretty much that they are just as fast as desktop computers, but also so mobile that we can take them with us when we want, and have battery life to entertain us for a while. The machines should therefore ideally be a technological reincarnation of the potato - it must be used for everything!
Asus bet with M50Vn of this market segment. It is a machine that can function equally well to the media, communication, work and entertainment. Asus brag in addition of the extra tight security and very good battery management.
ASUS M50Vn Laptop
The machine appears in different configurations with different hardware, and varies with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor from 2.0 to 2.8 GHz, up to 4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 RAM, a 15.4-inch display with a resolution of 1366x768, 1440x900 or 1680x1050 pixels and a 250 GB, 320 GB or 500 GB hard drive.
What they all have in common include an Intel PM45 Express Chipset, Nvidia Geforce 9650M GT video card, Blu-Ray drive and a standard 6-cell battery of 53 Wh.
In our test copy, we have a P8600 processor from Intel at 2.4 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 1440x900 screen resolution and a 500 GB hard drive. This is a sufficiently powerful hardware that we expect seamless execution of most applications, and a very responsively system.
