Review Asus K50IJ-SX Notebook

20 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Asus' K50IJ is a stylish entry-level notebook that has some clever details that make it worthy of a second look from performance-undemanding computer users: First, the palm rest will always be cool and allow you to work comfortably.

Asus K50IJ-BNC5

12 September 2010
  • Summary: The Asus K501J-BCN5 serves up long battery life, a backlit keyboard, and a year of AV protection. Unfortunately, these Next Class features add a considerable sum to the price; we like a cheaper yet similarly configured Asus K501J model better.
  • Pros: Solid build quality; long-lasting six-cell battery; comfortable, backlit keyboard; multitouch touch pad; a year of AV protection included.
  • Cons: Next Class features add to the bill; underwhelming preinstalled software; no HDMI.

ASUS K50 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
7 October 2009
  • Summary: The ASUS K50 was a pleasure to use. It offered zippy performance speeds in comparison to similarly priced notebooks, a comfortable keyboard, and lengthy battery life. At $699, though, the K50 is currently $100 more expensive than comparable systems such as the Gateway NV5807u. While the latter system may have shorter battery life, this factor hardly outweighs the price differential.

Asus K50IJ review

11 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Asus's K50IJ is a chunky laptop, but its bulk gives it a feeling of sturdiness that makes us confident that it will handle standard daily use and being carried around occasionally. It looks attravailable, thanks to the glossy coating on the chassis. Thankfully, the coating hasn't been applied to the keyboard and the standard matt finish makes the keys easier to see and type on.

Asus K50AB

27 October 2009
  • Summary: The K50AB is a typical mid-range laptop that looks good, but the in-built GPU-switching feature doesn't save on battery at all. We'd suggest looking elsewhere for your mid-range needs.
  • Pros: Looks and feels upmarket for the price, Multi-touch touchpad in entry-level machine
  • Cons: Low battery life, No Bluetooth
