The following two ASUS models remain part of the most representative products that have been recently released. ASUS’ K73E-BBR7 and U56E-BAL7 machines use Intel processors able to develop very high speeds and large system memory and storage capacity so you can both do more things simultaneously and keep dozens of files, including multimedia stuff respectively. One of the most important differences between the two regards the screen sizes. So, the first model is mainly dedicated to desktop use, while the second one is much more portable so you can carry it with you on the street or at school.
More exactly, the ASUS K73E-BBR7 system uses a very large display measuring 17.3 inches featured with a LED backlit technology and a very high resolution. This model has already earned dozens of fans especially thanks to its speed and the lack of noise, which means that you can do your job without being disturbed by the cooler noise. Of course, the computer impressed plenty of individuals who sped much of the time a home or at the office.
Concerning the autonomy, this machine runs on and on for up to six hours and a half, depending on use, so you can forget about an outlet for a pretty long time. Your applications, programs and other important data are saved on a 500 GB hard disk drive, while the intense activity is sustained by a 4 GB system memory, expandable to 8 GB.
What we also want to mention is that the computer uses a digital media card reader, an integrated 10/100/1000 Mbps Fast Ethernet and a 802.11 n Wi-Fi tech dedicated to your online tasks. As for the operating system, this computer uses – as you probably expected – Microsoft’s Windows 7 Home Premium OS.
Unlike the previous ASUS, the U56E-BAL7 machine shares a Core i5 processor able to reach a 3.1 GHz speed thanks to its Turbo Boost technology. As we mentioned above, the model is ultra portable as it only measures 1.1 inches height, 10.6 inches depth and 14.9 inches, and weights 5.5 lbs. So, the model can be used by every student in need of a portable ‘toy’ or a busy professional in need of a brisk system.
6 GB of system memory sustains you intense and complex work, while the huge 750 GB hard disk drive is able to keep and save hundreds of thousands of files and folders. The model has become a top-rated also thanks to an incredible networking delivering a 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi tech and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN. Even more than that, this ASUS features an 8-cell battery able to run for up to eight hours, which means that you can work unplugged for a long time.
