The Asus K52F-BBR9 laptop features an Intel Core i3 processor, a 15.6″ display and Microsoft Windows 7.
The Intel inside is the Core i3-370M processor. It’s a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.4 GHz. It has 4 processing threads and 3MB of cache. It was built on a 32nm process and uses 35W. This laptop comes with 4GB DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB.
The screen is a 15.6″ LED-backlit high-definition widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768. It’s powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD, which uses shared video memory (up to 1756MB allocated from the system memory). The card supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming though with shared memory you probably won’t get great performance on the latest ones.
For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM. Plenty big enough for the files you want to store on it, unless you’re an avid movie downloader. The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. Oh, and the digital media reader supports Secure Digital, MultiMedia Card, Memory Stick, and Memory Stick PRO formats.
For networking you get a 10/100/1000 Mbps Fast Ethernet LAN adapter for your wired networking needs. You can get to this through the RJ-45 port. For wireless you can use the built-in 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN adapter or use the integrated WiMAX mobile broadband modem. You’ll need a subscription with a mobile provider for th the 4G WiMAX modem.
