well I had a Sony Laptop for about a year when it suddenly decided to give out and the hard drive crashed. don't know why but that meant I needed a new laptop. Now while shopping around I knew what I wanted and I think in order for this review to be helpful the buyer should know what they are looking for and what they are going to use it for.

First, The ASUS A53SD-ES71 isn't sold on the ASUS website the last I checked. now this doesn't mean it is a fake nor is it a replica with an ASUS logo on it. It just means that it was taken from a different model and sold mostly using other sites such as Amazon and TigerDirect.

Second, The ASUS name itself is very reliable and most times over looked. Just because your friend has a HP and your first computer was a Dell does not mean that the ASUS name can't live up to your expectations. In fact I feel like it does an even better job.

Third, This laptop in specific has lots of features that make it a desired laptop. The Intel Core i7 is currently the best processor made and if bought buy itself can cost just as much as the laptop. The Intel Turbo Boost Technology that comes with it allows the user to choose at which speed the processor will run. The details in the description state that it will run up to 2.2GHz. Now with the High Performance mode available with the turbo boost allows it to run even up to 3.0 GHz. This allows for better performance and will even run multiple programs at the same time with out slowing down performance.

Fourth, The NVIDIA 610M graphics card in this laptop is just phenomenal. The fact that this laptop has a dedicated graphics card allows for it to not only playback videos in great quality but it also allows for video games to be played.

*Read if you are having issue with the graphics card or plan to buy

I just bought the computer and I instantly loved it. The features of the machine are awesome and I have already expanded the memory to 8gb. However the issue primarily is with the Nvidia 610m card. The card could not be detected when I first booted up the machine, so I uninstalled the existing drivers and discovered that drivers for this machine seem to not exist. I first went to Nvidia for the drivers and the site scanned my machine and told me I needed to go to the manufacturer for drivers. Howerver on Asus's website there is no A53sd model so I started searching through forums on Nvidia and Asus. Apparently there have been a vast amount of people with driver issues for this card inside of Asus machines, especially this model. No one can find the drivers or acquire a working driver, but I found a solution for anyone who buys this computer. This worked on my computer what I did was I did a dxdiag and noticed the model number it displayed was the K53sd not a A53sd. The model is not the same the K53sd has an i5 but the same processor...download it anyway. The install scanned for Nvidia hardware and found compatible hardware for the driver. After a reboot the card was detected and was working great! Windows index went from a 4.9 to a 5.6. Took about a hour to figure it out, but this in noway changed my opinion of Nvidia or Asus.

Second minor bug which I dont really care for is the ac input for the charger is on the side of the computer. Until I got it home and started using it I realized I would have preferred it on the back. No a huge issue though

I've had the laptop for all of a week now, so maybe still a little soon to be commenting on quality, but so far I am very pleased with this purchase. I was not really familiar with ASUS prior to this purchase, sofor the specifications at this price, I was expecting it to look cheap or otherwise not quite live up to the numbers, but I was wrong no both accounts. The laptop has a very nice appearance & all the components feel well made & well placed on the laptop. More importantly, it runs perfectly. The screen is nicer than I expected & the area surrounding the keyboard has a nice aluminum top which is comfortable on the hands (I was expecting all plastic).

The laptop is for work & home use, my only real requirement was that it be able to play Diablo III. I have noticed some comments about issues with the video card driver for the laptop; I have not had any issues. When I installed Diablo it prompted me that the driver for the Intel Chipset was not current, which was weird, but the laptop recognizes the card & I installed the latest driver without issue. Diablo runs perfectly while watching a movie & burning a DVD at the same time, so no complaints there.

The only real downsides I've noticed so far are that the speakers are pretty weak (don't be fooled by the fact that they try & throw in a name brand), & the touch pad is placed so that I tend to brush it with the side of my hand while typing, which could get annoying (although I find it's happening less as I get used to it). Also, although I haven't noticed, I have been told is somewhat heavy (still a lighter than my old one with over an inch extra screen, so again, no complaints).
