The new ASUS N61JQ-X1 is a great example of laptop that is geared towards entertainment. ‘Video’ and ‘Audio’ are two of the main keywords in this model. This model is powered by a very powerful Intel Core i7-720QM 2.8Ghz processor. It has 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 320GB hard drive.
The 16-inch screen is of course, a HD display and is backed by the very competent ATI 5730 graphics card. It has 1GB of VRAM dedicated to graphics. The audio on this laptop is also very noteworthy.

This model runs on the Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS.
Design: The 16-inch sports a rather subdued and minimalist design. There is an air of silent ‘classiness’ to it. It measures at 15.4 x 10.6 x 1.5 inches and weigh in at 6.5 pounds. It would make an excellent desktop replacement model.

Whether it is running heavy applications, heavy multi-tasking or playing graphic-heavy games, this model performed flawlessly.
