The Asus N82JV-X1 is a mid-size laptop at just $999. It has an i5 processor from Intel, which speeds up the processing. The Nvidia graphics card renders awesome graphics for gaming, the only con being the poor battery life. A raised keyboard, along-with the 14-inch backlit keyboard are its other features. The webcam is good and can be used optimally at 640×480 resolutions. It has the latest 3.0 USB port, and Altec-Lansing speakers provide average sound quality. The main reason to buy this is its i5 processor which can handle multi-tasking with considerable ease.
