SANS - Survey on application security programs

Game on

Running Crysis in medium definition at 1680 x 1050 saw the screen refreshing at around 30 frames-per-second which isn’t bad for a machine not being pitched primarily as a gaming rig. Running at 1920 x 1080 the N73 generated a handy 3DMark06 score of 6697

Asus N73SV

Easy on the eye, ear and wallet

The battery in the N73 is a rather meagre 4,400mAh six-cell unit. In general use you will see between two and two and a half hours from a charge, but playing a Blu-Ray disc with the brightness and volume cranked up, it managed just 1hr 25mins. On the plus side, the machine is both silent and cool when running, so there is none of that MacBook todger roasting.

Verdict

An i7 N73 will set you back around £900 which is pretty decent value when you consider the top-end technical specification, superb full-HD screen, cracking sound reproduction, attractive looks and generally very good built quality. Compared to a 17inch MacBook Pro it’s a bargain. The downside is the bouncy keyboard, but as I tend to use a remote keyboard when writing I could live with that. ®
