Asus N55SL super laptop available from £700

The design of the Asus N55SL laptop was inspired by David Lewis, a well-known artist, and is clearly aimed at power users. For a start, it costs a whopping £700 at Saveonlaptops.

It is powered by an Intel Core i7-2670QM Quad Core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz with the Sandy Bridge Architecture, 6 MB L3 cache and overclocking capabilities up to 3.1GHz.

There’s also a 15.6in full HD resolution (that’s 1,920 x 1,080 pixels), Windows 7 Home Premium, 12GB of RAM, 750GB hard disk drive, a Blu-ray drive, a dedicated graphics card (Nvidia Geforce GT635M with 2GB of RAM), Wi-Fi, GbE, a HD webcam, four USB ports, a card reader, VGA/HDMI ports, a dedicated numeric keypad and a number of Asus-inspired features.

These include SonicMaster, an audio solution developed with Bang & Olufsen’s ICEPower technology (the laptop comes with a free external subwoofer), Super Hybrid Engine II, a power management solution that allows a laptop to spring into life in less than two seconds and resume from standby in 15 days.

As expected the laptop also comes with a free BullGuard internet security licence valid for 12 months and you can upgrade the warranty to three years for £100 (includes accidental damage).

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
