First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best 15in notebooks
- — 04 November, 2010 14:32
Due to their size, plentiful features and low price, 15in laptops still represent the sweet spot in the market. Pricing for a well-featured 15in notebook starts at around $800 and it can go up to around $2000 depending on its specifications. In this round-up, we've gathered some of the best 15in laptops we've seen to date, including the Medion Akoya P6624 (MD98390). While the Medion is not always available (Aldi usually sells them every few months), it's worth keeping it mind for when it does go on sale at Aldi. Almost every Medion model we've seen offers incredible value. We've also included HP's Pavilion dv6, which is a quad-core laptop for $999, as well as Dell's very popular Inspiron 15R, Samsung's glossy R590-JS02AU, MSI's FX600, Lenovo's business-centric Thinkpad T510 and Acer's Aspire Timeline X.
8 / 8
The ASUS K52Jr (K52JR-SX070V) is a fine desktop replacement-style notebook with a manageable footprint that allows it to also be transported relatively easily between home and the classroom or office. It possesses good graphics power for its price and it's a comfortable notebook to use overall. However, we wish it had slightly better battery life and that it had a screen that was less reflective and had better viewing angles.
