Amazon.co.uk has dropped another great deal on Asus K55 series laptop.  This time it’s the Asus K55VD – a high performance notebook featuring Intel’s third generation i5-3210M Ivy Bridge processor capable of running at up to 3.10GHz, 6GB of ultra-fast 1600MHz DDR3 memory and a 500GB hard drive. It is evident from the latter that the Asus K55VD has a lot of ‘punching power’ so any speed issues should be a ‘thing of the past’ thereby delivering pleasant Microsoft Windows 7 experience.

On top of that,  the K55VD has a dedicated graphics card from NVIDIA – the GTX 610M. It has 2GB of DDR3 video memory and performs relatively well on less demanding games like FIFA 2012 and Call of Duty Black Ops. Bear in mind that this isn’t a high-end GPU, so the very latest games will most likely have frame rate issues on this laptop.

Still, £429.99 for a laptop with a 3rd gen i5 and a dedicated GPU is an awesome offer.
