Asus claims its NV76VM is the perfect multimedia notebook, boasting enough computing and graphics power, a good screen, and practical interfaces.

Asus WLAN Wireless Driver for Windows 7

In this review, we scrutinize to what extent the Asus NV76VM lives up to these claims or possibly even surpasses them. Recent events suggest that inch notebooks are becoming obsolete. As with the N56 models, the N76 is available in two variants. Other CPUs are optionally available.

Similarly the user can select from a number of options in terms of RAM configurations, hard disk capacities, and the choice of DVD and Blu-Ray readers and writers. The user is provided with the choice of x or x resolutions for the ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN display.

Case For the N76 family, Asus chose to use a fundamentally different case than the previous N75 family. The high-gloss plastics of the previous generation have been replaced by a significantly higher quality blend of materials, namely aluminum and plastic. The high-gloss finish has been replaced by a brushed, black-gray aluminum finish for the display lid which provides a pleasant contrast to the aluminum colored work surface of the base unit. Were it not for the circular perforated and printed pattern, the base unit might cause a passerby to mistake the Asus device for an Apple notebook. The Windows sticker on the wrist rest and Asus logo at the bottom of the display are ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN most obvious proof to the contrary. While the overall impression, material, and build quality falls short of those of the Apple unibody case, Asus has nonetheless created a very high-end product that undoubtedly belongs to the premium notebook sector.

The two-tone base unit clearly reveals its two-piece construction.

The top aluminum piece ends at the interfaces and is continued by the grey-black plastic bottom piece. While equally rigid and stable, the bottom piece lacks the chic ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN of the aluminum upper piece. Instead of being fabricated from a matching grey-black plastic, the optical drive tray is merely painted to match.

We also found that the battery is not completely flush with the back edge of the base ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN and creates an unnecessary protrusion. Otherwise, the torsional rigidity of both the base unit and ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN lid are good. The critical areas — the wrist rest, above the optical drive, and the battery component — demonstrated either no depression or only marginal depression under specific pressure. The display hinge construction limited the opening angle slightly but demonstrated neither teetering nor any significant weakness.


For promotional effectiveness, pictures of the inch notebook only show the 14 mm 0. The overall dimensions of the N76VM — mm Fortunately, Asus chose size- and class-appropriate equipment for this model. This is a very good and more-than-sufficient mix of interfaces for the target consumer group of ambitious home users.

On the other hand, the frontal side interface placement gave us mixed feelings. While the ports are ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN within reach, they might get in the way when using external peripherals such as hard disks, displays, and a USB TV tuner. We found the opening mechanism to be a bit awkward as it was difficult to locate by touch and often did not respond until after being pressed several times.


A TV receiver with a connector for an external antenna was listed as an equipment ASUS N76VM Atheros WLAN but we were unable to determine which model the receiver is, what standards are supported, and how it is integrated into the system. Moreover, none of the configurations available in Germany come with this TV tuner package. Software Asus has been known for installing numerous tools and trial versions of software in its notebook and the N76VM is no exception. However, we found two small gems in the heap of software that are not the typical trial versions or bloatware. The Cyberlink MediaEspresso 6. Both programs are quite useful bonuses for users who frequently watch or record video.

Accessories The only accessories included in the retail package are a good subwoofer, a cleaning cloth, a cable tie, and a DVD of software. Asus provided no device-specific supplies or extra battery. Should accessories be required, the user must purchase these separately from Asus or a third-party provider.
