ASUS N53SM-ES72 15.6-Inch Laptop Review, Spec, Price

May 25, 2012 3:02 am0 comments

I generally use my laptop for web developer jobs & multimedia activities that involve a great deal of editing videos, hence owning a powerful laptop is a necessity. Even though I’m not that much into gaming, but still a laptop that comes with a feature of handling games with few basic settings is a plus point. Therefore I needed a laptop with top specifications, such as sufficient amount of ram, i7 quad-core processor, & discrete graphics, but this all has to fit in my budget.
The ASUS N53SM-ES72 has all the features that I ever needed. Although they don’t advertise it heavily, but from my personal experience, I have found this product to be quite satisfactory & I’m pleased with the decision I made.

The power adapter is somewhat chunky, but that’s fine with me, because what I was looking for was a powerful laptop. However, those who like the idea of having a portable power adapter should look for other laptops.

Several people have complained about the speakers on N53SM models & I’ve myself found the speakers not being loud enough. But this doesn抰 mean that the speakers are of inferior quality. The overall quality of the sound is pretty good and the speakers can achieve a decent volume, but still what’s missing is the loudness of the sound.

They sound good in a quiet environment. I’m not a hardcore fan of music, so it doesn’t matter much to me. When I’m in a mood of listening to music, I normally use headphones or external speakers.
The ASUS N53SM-ES72 comes with several preinstalled bloatware or useless applications. But to me again, it’s not a matter of concern, since this has become a common feature with most of the laptops that are available today.

I wish this ASUS N53SM-ES72 had a Blu ray drive, but when compared with MacBook Pro, it’s not a drawback. Apple MacBook Pros does not have Blu ray drive either.

ASUS N53SM-ES72 Pros:

The ASUS laptop is amazingly fast. Basic programs similar to MS Word load instantly and Adobe Premiere & Photoshop work perfectly well. Games such as StarCraft 2, Fallout3 & DOTA 2 run perfectly well with high settings.

It is a 1080p screen with a matte finish that gives high quality graphics. Before purchasing ASUS N53SM-ES72, I thought of it to have a reflective glossy screen but instead I later found it to have a screen with matte finish that I personally favor.(I know there are some users that don’t care much about it).

This laptop has a nice design and comes with a robust built. You cannot compare it with the aluminum body of MacBooks, but that doesn’t make ASUS laptops any inferior to MacBook. This is one of the best laptops from ASUS. When compared with my old MacBook, the fan isn’t that loud at all.
Both of my previous Apple laptops one way or the other showed the tendency to acquire high temperatures. But to my amazement, I was pretty impressed with how cool & quiet ASUS N53SM-ES72 runs. The fan may sound to work frequently, but I’m pretty fine with that so long as it helps to keep my laptop cool.

This laptop comes with an additional feature of USB 3.0. This is a feature you won’t find in a MacBook. It’s been a week since I’ve got this laptop, therefore this review may change. But until now, I’m extremely satisfied with this ASUS N53SM-ES72.
The ASUS N53SM-ES72 is quite at par with my expectations & last but not the least, it comes at a price that is less than MacBook, good job ASUS.

Final Conclusion:

Truly, a great laptop with great price. Like I’ve mentioned above, I may have small complains, but this is a laptop that won’t disappoint you at all. I was having more problems with my previous laptops, & they were above thousand dollars.
