This portable PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many many processor core laptops that are a comparable age to it.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The Asus N550JV has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory capacities (4 gigabytes) amongst portable PCs of this age. The discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of many processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the N550JV range from 1GB to 8GB.
Intel Core I7 Processor Family
This portable PC has an Intel Core i7-4xxx processor family, which is the most commonly found processor family on similar spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The Asus N550JV has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other portable PCs of this age and type.
It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative laptops with a full-size keyboard currently available including because of it's better review score, the Asus U500VZ (£649.99).
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus N550JV has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other portable PCs that came out more than two years ago. The average total storage capacity of many processor core laptops that are a comparable age to the N550JV is 660GB.
If this portable PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the Gigabyte P27K-CF1 (1.1TB and higher rated).
Has a Front Camera
The Asus N550JV has a front camera, as do most of the other many processor core laptops that came out more than two years ago.
+9 More reasons for
1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Asus N550JV supports a faster memory clock speeds supported by processor than most laptops of this age and spec. This Asus notebook PC supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed, whereas most laptops of a comparable spec and age to it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed.
A 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed is in fact the best supported memory clock speeds supported by processor across all many processor core laptops that have been around for a similar time to the N550JV.
The worst supported memory clock speeds supported by processor amongst comparable types of laptop is 133MHz.
Four Built-In Speakers
The Asus N550JV is a four built-in speaker laptop. Most of the other laptops that have been available for a comparable time to the N550JV only have between one and three built-in speakers.
64-Bit Operating System Architecture
This portable PC has a 64-bit operating system architecture, which is typical of many laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.
L3 Processor Cache
This notebook PC has a L3 processor cache, which is typical of many laptops of a comparable type and age to it.
Quite Big Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the Asus N550JV has a fairly big hard drive capacity compared to most of the other laptops of this type and age. The average hard drive capacity of laptops that were released around the same time as the N550JV is 720GB, and the hard drive capacity range from 100GB to 1.5TB.
Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of laptops of a similar type and age to the N550JV is 1GB, the biggest is 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2.4GB. The Asus N550JV has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory (4,096 megabytes) amongst many processor core laptops of this age.
802.11g WiFi Standard
The Asus N550JV has an 802.11g WiFi standard which is better than the 802.11b WiFi standard found on most many processor core laptops that are a comparable age to it. The Wi-Fi standard of all many processor core laptops that came out more than two years ago ranges from 802.11a (worst) to 802.11n (best).
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This laptop has a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many many processor core laptops that have been available for more than two years.
3 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many many processor core laptops that were released around the same time as it. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
We compared all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media to this portable PC and we think the Asus N56VJ which has a better Rating is also worth considering.
Only 1366 X 768 Pixels Display Resolution
This laptop has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels, which is the most commonly found display resolution on laptops of a comparable type and age to it.
If the display resolution of this notebook PC is not high enough for you then you might want to look at the N56VJ (1920 x 1080), or the U500VZ (£649.99) (1920 x 1080) both from Asus which also has a higher Rating.
Does Not Have a Touch Sensitive Screen
Like most of the other similar spec laptops that have been around for around the same time as the N550JV, the Asus N550JV does not have a touch sensitive screen.
5 Other reasons to consider the Asus N550JV
