Asus R510JX-DM230T Laptop Specifications

Asus’s R510JX-DM230T is 2.9 centimeters in thickness and weighs almost 2.5 kilograms. The laptop is powered by an Intel 2.0 Ghz Core i7 Broadwell CPU with an 8GB DDR3 RAM and 1TB of internal storage memory. The graphics on the system are supported with an NVIDIA Geforce GTX 950M card, which is one generation older than the newest GTX cards NVIDIA launched this April. The laptop comes along with Windows 10 pre-loaded on it and works on a 64-bit architecture that runs most modern programs. With the Geforce card onboard, the system can support almost all graphic heavy games at 360fps although the visual output may not seem to be the finest.

I feel that Asus ought to have given careful consideration to seemingly insignificant details. Case in point, the R510J doesn’t deal with SSD, which essentially puts gaming ability on hold a bit. If there should be an occurrence of running diversions, as well as the nonattendance of SSD additionally significantly backs off stacking time amid running substantial applications.

Talking about the trackpad, it is indeed smooth and incredibly appealing. However, the sole problem that I experienced is separating between the left and right touch on the pad.

I believe the graphics in the Asus R510J could have been somewhat more enlivened as a gaming laptop. However if we talk about the difficulties at design aspect, the polished finish effortlessly pulls in smudges and fingerprints.

The machine sports a full keyboard, with a dedicated numeric pad. One drawback, however, is that the lettering and numbering on the keys are barely visible, making it difficult to use the keyboard in dim light conditions.


One thing great about the Anti-Glare screen on the Asus R510JX-DM230T is that it has a matte finish that reduces the reflective index of ambient light. While that helps in better viewing, the screen doesn’t offer much of a viewing angle so you may have to tilt and adjust the screen for better viewing when more than one viewer watches something simultaneously.

Although fit to run games, the Asus R510JX-DM230T runs short when it comes to its offering on battery life. The laptop is said to give you a usage time of about 4 hours which is quite little considering the price you pay for the piece. Although the hardware specifications aren’t on the highest side of the spectrum, the Asus R510JX-DM230T makes an expensive purchase for its offerings.
