[Review] : Asus K535Y

Asus K53BY 
Standard Performance for a Big Package

The K53BY is basically the 15" version of the K43U here in the Philippines, same specifications but more on package in terms of physical aspect as its now a 15" notebook.

Powered by AMD E-350 Fusion APU, the notebook is capable of decent gaming such as Starcraft II. Already Full 1080p HD Capable the K53BY is perfect for a budget notebook. Pretty much as like a Dual Core Intel in terms of performance, the K53BY is perfect for people who tends to multi-task basic applications. Applications such as Microsoft Word, Internet Explorer, Excel, Outlook and even playing a video at the same time.

Expected from a dual core PC, games isn't the main focus but more of functionality for productivity. 

The K43U & K53BY or basically any AMD based product uses the Wave keyboard of Asus instead the Chiclet keyboard. This is probably to differentiate Intel & AMD based products. 

Still the consistent "Ice Cool Technology" of Asus applies in AMD Based K series, what this do is that the Palm Rest of the notebook will never get hotter than the body temperature of the human body. So we will always feel the palm rest cold. This is a great advantage over other brands which still can't maintain the heat of their notebooks. 

The touchpad of the K53BY is quite ample in space with their special feature of "Palm Proof Technology" which is quite unique among other brands. Basically the feature will block ne y input commands if the source is not as big as a finger. So Palms, shoulders and other large area inputs are not going to respond. Making it easier to type especially when you are new with the unit as you will have the transition in getting used to the product.

Standard connection are still the same as any other notebooks, 

  • 3 x USB 2.0
  • Microphone Built-In, Audio-In, Microphone Jack
  • HDMI 1.3
  • DVD-RW SuperMulti
  • D-Sub Port
  • LAN RJ-45 Port

Overall the Asus K53BY is simply a good multi-tasking unit offered with a larger screen and with a numerical pad, its perfect for people with professions  in terms of numeric / math.
