Review Notebook ASUS K50IJ
The ASUS K50IJ series is one of the latest budget notebooks designed to provide better performance than a netbook and a larger screen for only a modest price increase. Every laptop manufacturer on the market offers a multimedia family PC with a 15-inch screen because these laptops make excellent desktop replacements. The real question is, does the ASUS K50IJ offer enough performance and features at its bargain price of $699? Keep reading to find out.

At first glance the ASUS K50IJ might not look like anything special. Even the ASUS website describes the K50IJ as being “designed to provide a no-frills computing experience to users while on the move.” Well, with glowing prose like that how can we be anything other than impressed?
In all seriousness, the K50IJ isn’t a poorly built laptop. The chassis is pretty solid with a mixture of glossy and matte plastics and doesn’t suffer from the flex or squeaks that are common to cheap plastics. The glossy palmrests are nice and large with good support and the full-size keyboard with dedicated number pad is comfortable to type on during a full day at work. The one and only obvious area of weak build quality are the plastic covers over the screen hinges … which can pop off with just a little bit of pressure.
Overall, the K50IJ is a reasonably nice looking desktop replacement. I use the term “desktop replacement” because most people in the market for a 15-inch notebook aren’t planning to haul their notebook everywhere during frequent airline travel. The nearly six-pound weight of the K50IJ makes this laptop an unlikely candidate for road warriors.
The bottom of the notebook features the battery located behind a single access plate that must be removed in order to release the battery. There are no access panels on the bottom of the laptop for upgrading the RAM, hard drive, or wireless cards. While the lack of upgradeability might be a major flaw for some users, it’s safe to assume that most people buying this laptop won’t be making upgrades. In fact, the K50IJ only has a single RAM slot and comes with a 4GB RAM module, so it’s impossible to add more RAM to this system. Unfortunately, if you want to upgrade the hard drive to a faster drive or SSD then you’ll have to disassemble the entire chassis.
