Review: Asus K72DR-A1 Dekstop Replacement Laptop

PCWorld: Review – Asus K72DR-A1 Dekstop Replacement Laptop

This product, described as “an excellent multimedia machine” with a “superb” keyboard, gets three stars out of five. Overall performance was not great, especially on games, the reviewer says.

“Sometimes you just need a second PC, and the Asus K72DR may just fit the bill. Asus’ budget desktop replacement unit ships with a Blu-ray drive and decent audio performance, making this a great second PC, allowing your kids to watch a movie of their own while you’re curled up in front of your HDTV.

This Asus ships with a mobile AMD triple-core Phenom N830 CPU, running at 2.1 GHz. This processor won’t win any performance awards, but it’s capable enough for living room or light office chores. The discrete AMD Radeon HD 5470 GPU makes up somewhat for the limited CPU performance, particularly when watching video or playing games.”
