Modern and simplistic design in aluminium body ASUS N550JK-DB74T is a powerful 15.6 inch Full HD Touchscreen notebook with a 4th generation i7 processor, a massive 16GB memory for all the multitasking you want, a fast 256GB Solid State Drive instead of a slower Serial ATA hard drive and it is ideal for business use, home entertainment, advanced gaming and very demanding applications. You have something quite special here with top of the range everything so it seems to be well worth its price.

ASUS N550JK comes with a high end quad core Intel i7-4710HQ at 2.5GHz- 3.5GHz speed with turbo boost function and hyper threading for four cores to handle eights threads in parallel to be able to use the processor better, 16GB DDR3L SDRAM to able to run many apps and software, playing songs and videos while keeping tens of browsers open without encountering any lagging or freezing and 256GB SSD for much snappier performance overall, very quick start-ups and waking up from sleep mode in two seconds with ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II and of course the 64-bit version of Windows 8.1 operating system.

15.6 inch Full-HD Touchscreen glossy display to be able to navigate Windows 8 apps comfortably (responsive touch with 6mm resolution touch detection), IPS with up to 178 degree great viewing angles, 1920 x 1080 pixel maximum screen resolution offering impressive sharpness and clarity and powerful upper mid-range NVIDIA GTX850M with a dedicated 2GB of video memory (released in March 2014) as well as the integrated Intel HD 4600 with shared memory with CPU and is 30% faster than Intel HD 4000. You get to hear some of the best surround sound on a laptop with the SonicMaster Premium, developed by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower sound engineers and a total of 4 speakers as well as an external mini-Subwoofer which we haven’t actually had the chance to have a look but it is reported to improve the experience while playing games and playing music and videos.

ASUS N550JK-DB74T 15.6 inch Full-HD Touchscreen Laptop Review
Aluminium body construction stylish ASUS laptop weighs 6 pounds with the dimensions of 10 x 15.1 x 1.10 inches- it is fairly slim but not really lightweight for a 15.6 inch PC. Its 4-cell Li-ion Polymer Battery gives you up to 5 hours in average use and the keyboard is backlit to allow you to type comfortably in reduced light, has a 10-key numeric pad and trackpad that is OK but not great (clicking seems to be a little problematic- you need to do the left and right clicks in the middle). Connectivity options include Optical DVD Drive, 3x USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI port to mirror your laptop screen on your HDTV or an external monitor, SDXC Card Reader, 1x MiniDisplay port, faster 802.11 A/C wireless with larger coverage, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit ethernet with RJ-45 connectivity, 1 x Headphone/Microphone combo jack and a very good quality 720p high definition webcam to chat with family and friends and videoconference with coworkers.

Conclusion: ASUS N Series N550JK-DB74T is a great quality computer with high-end components, top technical specs and features.. NVIDIA Ge Force GTX850M is an advanced graphics card that can handle many of the latest games like Skyrim and BioShock Infinite smoothly at FHD- higher settings but exceptions like Crysis 3 will need to be played at lower settings, 16GB RAM and 256GB Solid State Drive are both impressive amounts enabling very heavy multitasking, good amount of storage and super fast performance with already powerful quad core Intel i7-4710HQ processor, best of video (FHD, IPS and touch) and audio (quad speakers, SonicMasterPremium and a mini subwoofer). Laptop works quietly and doesn’t heat up even after hours of use, thanks to the dual fans, large vents and twin heat pipes. It is not a cheap laptop but you get more than what you pay for in this case. It comes with a 12 month international warranty and Accidental Damage Protection for spills, drops, fire damage and power surges by Asus and 24/7 customer technical support.
