Asus N55SF – Sound to another level

First saw at Computex 2011, the new series of laptops Asus N (N45SF Asus, Asus N55SF and Asus N75SF) caught my attention with its elegant design and the external subwoofer for bass.

The speaker uses the same model like NX90, only that the premises are lower. The Asus laptop has revolutionized the market if multimedia laptops and raise the audio standard with the SonicMaster technology and the Bang & Olufsen ICEpower audio system implemented in N series.

Taiwanese manufacturer was the first that got out the bass from a foreign speaker. Plus it's good for the laptop. The sensitive components are no longer affected by the vibration.

The design was created by David Lewis, who also designed Asus NX90.

Regarding its configuration, Asus N55SF is based on the Huron River platform and comes equipped with Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7-2630QM at 2.0GHz, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 640GB hard disk capacity and NVIDIA GeForce 555M GT. To my joy, the display is bright and has a HD+ (1600 x 900) resolution.

N55SF is ready to face the latest games, but we recommend it especially for the multimedia part (audio/video). Given that it comes equipped with Blu-ray, you should watch the best movies or listen your preferred album in a great quality.


Asus N55SF Strengths:

  •  Quality Materials
  •  Good configuration relative to the price
  •  Complete standard keyboard
  •  Large Palmrest
  •  SonicMaster technology and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower audio system


Asus N55SF Weaknesses:

  •  Glossy Cover
  •  Difficult for a 15.6 inch laptop - 2.71 Kg


Design and exterior

Asus N55SF has excellent design, elegant, with noble allure. The laptop is a combination of colors and materials. On N55SF we will meet the resistant plastic, aluminum and even finished rubber items.

Raising the cap, we will find the classic keyboard, a generous palm rest and the speaker, which is much higher than that the found in previous generation of Asus N laptops. The speakers have the same size and characteristics as those encountered in NX90, only that the premises are lower. They are covered by a large aluminum grille. Is in contrast with the keyboard, but it should be mentioned that the keys have plastic material and painted silver.

The screen is matte and offers the advantages of a resolution of 1600 x 900 pixels. Full HD was not indicated, and 1366 x 768 did not match the allure of a "professional" in the music domain. Asus N55SF touch makes you feel special.

If you rotate it a little, we will see the connection and extension ports. Below is information on their distribution.

On the right side is a yellow port specifically designed and implemented for external speaker. And now to tell some things about the subwoofer. At first glance unreliable. It's small, built from a hard plastic and is extremely easy. You tend to say is more for ornament. But all thoughts and first impressions disappear when you connect your laptop and play a song or a favorite movie. You get impressed by the sound quality it has and you will note the importance of the woofer.

For a better sounding, hold the mini-subwoofer closer to the laptop on a flat and hard surface.

I can say that the Asus N55SF laptop enjoys a super 2+1 sound system with two large speakers and a Sonic Master external subwoofer.

Asus N55SF is a laptop designed and dedicated to the multimedia market, but you can use it for the office work or gaming. The games cannot compare with Asus G74SX 3D, but with its Core i7 processor, the 4 GB of RAM and GeForce 555M GT is ready to run office applications, Internet, multimedia and complex applications.

    well mine is Full HD with 8x blu-ray xD
    Very good, except that the numpad can't type number in Thai mode, it'll input Thai alphabets as in the integrated number row above the qwerty row - -* somewhat annoying. But for those of yours who have the US version shouldn't be an issue anyway
