Asus R510DP-FH11 is an attractive 15.6 inch laptop PC with solid construction, sleek and lightweight factor, great performance levels for most things you’d do daily on a computer, Full HD IPS display with dedicated graphics card and a good variety of connectivity options and features more than what its price can normally give you.

Asus R510DP-FH11 comes with the AMD A Series A10-5750M quad core (4MB L2 Cache) processor at 2.5GHz base speed that can be over clocked up to 3.5 GHz with AMD TurboCore 3.0, large 8GB DDR3 SDRAM memory (max RAM capacity is 8GB) to run a few apps and programs without encountering freezing and delays, 750GB Serial ATA hard drive at 5400rpm standard spindle speed (1 year of Cloud based storage is also free with the purchase of this machine) and the 64-bit Windows 8 operating system with its customisable tiles pre-installed which you should upgrade to the Windows 8.1 for its additional features- many people even prefer it to the beloved Windows 7. Win 8 is completely different to any of the previous versions of Windows OS.

15.6 inch LED backlit Full HD anti-glare (matte finish) widescreen with 16:9 aspect ratio with 1920x1080 native pixel resolution and dedicated AMD Radeon HD 8670M with 2GB graphics card lets you view 720p high definition content comfortably without needing to upscale. You get a good quality webcam with a built-in microphone for live chats with family and friends. Asus SonicMaster sound system and the integrated stereo speakers will let you hear great immersive sound when you’re listening to music, watching movies or playing games- but bear in mind that this is not an advanced gaming machine even though the AMD 8670M (and it can run most games at low to medium settings with the combination of Radeon 8650G + AMD 8670M) is suitable for pretty much everything else. Also the IPS display means you get to view the screen equally well from different angles (up to 178 degrees).

Dark gray and black with a concentric circle finish Asus R510DP-FH11 weighs a little over 5 pounds and has the dimensions of 15 x 10 x 1-1.2 inches so it is quite portable. It stays cool after hours of use and manages to work quietly even when running demanding tasks. In terms of connectivity you have the 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, SuperMulti DVD Burner, Multi-Format Media Card Reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, an HDMI port, a microphone jack, a headphone jack and a chiclet style comfortable non-backlit keyboard with numeric keypad.

Conclusion: The Asus R510DP-FH11is a good all-round system that is well equipped with a DVD drive, Bluetooth, generous amounts of memory and hard drive, a powerful processor that can almost be compared to Intel i5-3230M in some ways to use at home, work or when you are out and about. Asus is a great brand with very high levels of customer satisfaction reported every year, they make good computers that are durable and generally look good (Asus laptops come with 12 month’s warranty, including damage warranty). Windows 8 or 8.1 may take a little getting used to then you’re likely to prefer it to even Win 7. No major cons to point out and definitely recommended if you’re looking for a good quality and durable computer with high specs and features and can even let you play the latest games (but not at higher settings).
