Asus K52N-BGR5 Laptop with AMD Turion II Review

Powering this system is the AMD Turion II P540 processor.  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.4GHz.  It has 2MB of L2 cache and uses 25W.  A higher than normal 6GB of DDR3 memory comes installed.  It can be expanded to a maximum of 8GB, but probably not necessary for most applications.

The screen is a 15.6″ diagonal High-Definition LED-backlit display with a resolution of 1366×768.  That gives the display a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p HD content. The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 graphics chip  with dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory means the system could slow down during graphically intensive applications (like games). It’s a bit underpowered for a screen of this size.

For storage you get a 500 GB hybrid hard drive rotating at 7200RPM.  That’s plenty big enough to handle your music, photos, games and more.  This hard drive incorporates large amounts of flash memory for faster access times. The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. The 4-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader supports Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro.

To get connected you get the option with this laptop of a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN port accessible through a standard RJ-45 connector for your wired connections.  On the wireless side of things you can use the built-in 802.11 b/g/n adapter. This laptop does  have a built-in 0.3 megapixel webcam, so video chatting is a breeze.

External ports include 3 USB 2.0 ports for connecting peripherals, 1 HDMI port for connecting to your HDTV, 1 15-pin VGA port for connecting an external monitor, 1 headphone out and 1 microphone in.  Other features include built-in facial recognition technology for added security and an Azalia compliant sound chip.

This Asus laptop comes installed with Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition. Other software includes Adobe Reader; WinFlash; FancyStartand more.

The laptop measures 15″x19″x1.4″ and weighs 5.7 pounds.  It comes with a battery and a 90W AC adapter.

You can find the Asus K52N-BGR5 laptop for around $530.
