The Asus N61Jq is a mid-cost multimedia notebook laptop, part of the N61 series. Asus promotes this series as being for audiophiles who want multimedia entertainment while on the move. The SonicMaster audio technology fine-tunes sound energy, noise balance, volume and dynamic sound range, while at the same time minimizing interference and distortion. This comes out at 21cc volume from the 2-channel Altec Lansing speakers. The Intel Core i7 720QM processor runs at 1.6GHz, and is equipped with Turbo Boost, which can send it up to 2.8GHz. The Turbo Boost kicks in automatically whenever your computer is in need of higher performance. The processor is the main feature that sets this laptop apart from the lower cost N61Jv, which gives you a choice between the Intel Core i5 540M/520M/430M processor (2.53 GHz - 2.26 GHz, with Turbo Boost up to 3.06/2.93/2.53 GHz) or the Intel Core i3 Processor 350M/330M (2.26 GHz - 2.13 GHz). The Video Magic technology of this laptop ups the quality of visuals, and enhances the quality of lesser video sources. The N61Jq has a ATI Radeon HD 5730 graphics card (one more feature that sets this laptop apart from the N61Jv, which has an NVIDIA GeForce GT325M graphics card), and is equipped with DirectX11 support. This means that the N61Jq's performance is maximized for gaming, giving you detailed, high quality graphics on the 16" HD display (with 1366x768 resolution). The difference between the N61Jq and higher cost N61Vg is also a matter of processor and graphics card (the N61Vg is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo T9600/P8800/P7450/T6600 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT220M graphics card). The Asus N61Jq comes with a two year limited hardware warranty, and a one year battery pack warranty.
