Asus makes a good product

by Fred on 11/27/2010

This is my first Asus product. It replaced an aging Dell 610 which died abruptly. Its the fastest Windows PC I own or use at work. The keyboard is good and my wife loves the numeric keypad. The touch pad works well but the palm detection feature is annoying. The display is very good although I wish for a higher resolution than WXGA 1366x768. Only gave 4 stars for value because I've seen a few laptops with higher resolution close to the same price. Speakers are OK for a laptop. Haven't heard one that is OK for my hearing loss.

Good: Overall good performance and everything seems to work. Bad: No button to change volume and wireless netowrk. The speaker is very bad. Overall: It is a powerful laptop with reasonable price.

The A52Jc-X1 also includes ASUS palm-proof technology that reduces typing errors, an intuitive multi-touch touchpad so you can pinch-zoom in or out of pictures and scroll with minimal effort, a built-in webcam and digital microphone, 320GB hard drive, high-speed wireless N connectivity, and SmartLogon for convenient, password-free facial recognition access.
