Asus K53T Battery

While, the hard and software components of any device is very important for a smooth experience, in this internet age, browser performance is another important aspect which contributes to the user experience of any device. Reports were already rife that Google Chrome browser affects the laptop's battery and the search engine giant also promised to come up with a solution to address this issue very soon. However, no such major update has been released by Google so far, apart from minor fixes.
One of the reasons we get laptops is because they are portable, making it entirely useful to use on the go. Unlike with a desktop computer that you can’t haul around, with a laptop you can work from a coffee shop, then take it back to work, then take it back home. Look, with a laptop you can take it virtually anywhere.

There is only one problem. Laptops have a limited battery life and more often than not batteries don’t last for an entire working day, especially when you are using multiple applications and web browsing on the device.According to Computer Hope a laptop battery should last between two to four years before its replaced and the total lifetime of the unit is dependent on the type of battery. For example if it is a Lithium-ion which are more expensive batteries they function better and for longer. As for battery life, Computer Hope says, the average life of laptop battery can be anywhere between 1 and 6 hours. The time is dependent on the type of battery and well as its capacity. It is also important to note that as the battery ages the capacity of the laptop battery also decreases.

Here are some tips to maximise your battery life according to Computer Hope.When purchasing a new laptop before using it, make sure you charge it for at least 24 hours. Once fully charged try to not discharge it fully.
If you are using the Laptop whilst it is plugged in, remove the battery.
If you are planning to not use your computer for an extended period of time, remove the battery during that period.
If your battery is not a Lithium-ion battery, use until flat before charging it again.
As is with most batteries, it’s best for their health to keep them out of extreme temperatures.
Use these tips to prolong battery life and the capacity of the battery, but don’t fret, some laptops have a much longer battery life than others. Here is a list of three laptops with a long battery life.

Lenovo Laptops are known for their long battery lives, last from anywhere from 6 hours to a whopping 17 hours. According to Laptop Mag which continuously surfed the web until the battery was drained, the Lenovo ThinkPad x260 lasted the longest coming in at 17 hours and 14 minutes. The Lenovo ThinkPad T460 lasted 13:12 hours and the Lenovo 100S Chromebook lasted for over 11 hours.
The Acer 1 Cloudbook an inexpensive laptop came in second lasting 14 hours and 43 minutes. While being the only Acer on the list, the laptop is described as an online orientated Windows laptop that is productive, has a fast wireless connection along with many other features. Yes! Yes, all you Apple fans will be happy to know that the MacBook Air 13 inch also made it onto the list of Laptops with the longest battery life span, coming it at number 3 lasting for 14 hours.
So when buying a laptop, make sure that you know how long the battery lasts for, the last thing you want is for a laptop to die on you whilst you are about to finish really important work with a looming deadline whilst at your favourite restaurant.

NEW DELHI: Asus has stirred the PC gaming market ever since it unleashed the ROG or Republic of Gamers laptop series. These powerful gaming machines over the years have not only witnessed improvement under-the-hood but have also been enhanced overall to deliver top-notch experience for gamers as well as non-gaming heavy users.

The Taiwanese-based tech company recently launched its ROG GL552VW gaming laptop priced at Rs 82,490. Being one of the newest in the line up, the laptop packs all the possible features one can expect from a high-end laptop. We spent few days with the Asus ROG GL552VW, playing some graphic-intensive video games along with some heavy software and endless hours of content streaming.
So, does the new gaming laptop makes the cut and is worthy enough for the gaming PC market? Read our review to find out.

If you are familiar with gaming laptops, then Asus ROG GL552VW's 15.6-inch display and a spread-out full-size keyboard is something you would've already expected. It measures 385 x 255 x 32.4 mm and is available in two different finishes -- grey metal and black coloured model with plastic chassis. Our review unit was the one with metallic finish, which mixed well with the company's iconic Red and Black colour combination seen on the keyboard, exhaust grilles and the glowing company logo at the back.

Just like any other gaming laptop in the price segment, the ROG GL552VW too is heavy as it weighs almost 2.5kg. This makes it difficult to carry around. The display is tightly fitted with the rest of the body via two hinges. This definitely marks a plus point given that most large-screen laptops these days have displays that wobble even while typing.

The keyboard is a complete delight to use. The keys look amazing in Red backlit colour and are clickable just like any other regular keyboard. You can also control the intensity of the keyboard's backlight. Asus claims the model to feature 'perfect-response 1.8mm travel distance'. The arrow keys are big and are spaced out perfectly. Catering to the needs of gamers, Asus has also especially highlighted the WASD keys. The touchpad is large and is responsive.

There are two front-firing speakers placed above the keyboard area resulting in a more immersive experience while watching videos or playing video games. They are powered by the company's native SonicMaster technology.
On the sides, users get 2 USB 3.0 and a USB 2.0 ports, LAN port, HDMI, and audio/mic inputs. While there is an optical disk drive on one side, the other side includes heat vents. One of the pros of the Asus ROG GL552VW is that the battery is not enclosed inside the laptop as it can be unlocked using the spring heads. Asus has made it easy for gamers to upgrade the laptop by letting them easily access the RAM and harddrive as well.
There is a HD webcam, a 3-in-1 SD card reader and a USB Type-C (USB 3.1) too. The webcam was just about average. It can shoot images in HD resolution and can record HD videos in 15fps and 30fps options.

The ROG GL552VW's 15.6-inch full HD display is crisp and offers impressive 178 degree viewing angles. The colour shift on the display is also minimal while viewing it from sides. The matte screen manages to prevent reflection. However, for some reason when we got our review unit, the display unnaturally showed a warm yellowish tint. But a bit of screen calibration did the trick. We personally liked the inclusion of full HD resolution display because not only is it easy on the laptop's battery but also we don't really see a need for a UHD resolution display on a 15.6-inch display just yet. Both full HD and UHD resolution on a 15.6-inch screen hardly appear different. Of course on larger screens like TV sets it would make a big difference.

Asus ROG GL552VW stays on top of the game when it comes to performance. The laptops packs a powerful Intel Core i7 (6th Gen.) processor under-the-hood clubbed with 16GB of DDR4 SDRAM. Although our review unit features 16GB RAM, it can be expanded up to 32GB via dedicated RAM sockets. There is an 8GB RAM variant as well, but who would want that?

We played games like Assassin's Creed Syndicate, Mortal Kombat X (in multiplayer mode) among few others and as expected there was not a single glitch or lag. In some rare cases, playing few titles on 'Ultra' mode resulted in screen stutter but that is negligible. We saw some frames stuttering even when the ROG GL552VW was running on battery.

Gaming, both singleplayer and multiplayer via LAN was smooth. According to Asus, the laptop boasts Gamefirst III technology to enhance gameplay. Talking about graphics, the particular department is run by Intel's HD Graphics 530 GPU in tandem with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M, which although is not the latest in the market but does give you a decent performance. The Nvidia GPU comes with 4GB GDDR5 VRAM.
As for the storage, our Asus ROG GL552VW unit came with 1TB of inbuilt space, of which almost 900GB is user accessible. The laptop comes in two storage options -- 1TB with 7200RPM and 1TB with 128 GB SSD. The wireless connectivity reception was powerful and worked just fine. The gaming device supports Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, and Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity.

The software prowess of the Asus ROG GL552VW lies with Microsoft's latest Windows operating system, the Windows 10 (Windows 10 Home version). As one would expect, the OS comes with its own share of goodies such as the new start button, Cortana virtual reality assistant, Microsoft Edge, new Photos app and more.Hewlett Packard is represented by Allstate Insurance Company et al v. Hewlett-Packard Company, case number 1:13-cv-02559 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.LAS VEGAS -- The ThinkPad T450s is our favorite productivity laptop right now, because it crams long battery life, strong performance and the industry's best keyboard into a relatively thin, lightweight chassis. For 2016, Lenovo is releasing an even-slimmer sequel in the 3-pound ThinkPad T460s, which includes a sharper display and faster SSD than its predecessor but sacrifices some endurance and flexibility by using a smaller, non-removable battery.

Editor's Note (3/16/2016): We've posted our full review of the ThinkPad T460s, complete with detailed test results and first-hand impressions. You can also buy the ThinkPad T460s from for a starting price of $980.10.Available in February for a starting price of $1059, Lenovo's new 14-inch workhorse bridges the gap between Lenovo's even-thinner, but less functional X1 Carbon and thicker ThinkPads like the new T460 (non S), T460p and T560, which were also announced today as part of the company's lineup of Intel 6th Generation Core Series-powered laptops.

Compared to its .83-inch thick, 3.8-pound predecessor, the 3-pound, .74-inch thick T460s seems particularly lean. However, the latest version of the ThinkPad X1 Carbon is a mere .66 inches thick and weighs just 2.6 pounds, though it costs $1,299 is not user serviceable and has shallower keys.Like other ThinkPads, the T460s has a raven black, matte chassis with subtle dashes of red appearing in the TrackPoint pointing stick, a pair of stripes on the mouse buttons and in the power light. The 14.1-inch display outputs at a sharp 2560 x 1440 resolution, a major step up from the T450s's 1920 x 1080 screen.

We had a chance to spend a few moments going hands-on with the ThnkPad T460s and we came away impressed with its light weight, sharp screen and snappy keyboard. The laptop feels much more portable than its predecessor, but doesn't sacrifice keyboard quality to get there. A Lenovo rep told us that the T460s offers the same 2.1mm of key travel as its predecessor. The keys felt snappy and deep when we touched them, which is really important for discerning typists. By contrast, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 and X260 series laptops have only 1.8mm of vertical travel.

On the inside, the ThinkPad T460s sports an Intel 6th Generation Core Series CPU with vPro security, your choice of Intel HD 520 graphics or a discrete Nvidia GeForce 930M GPU, up to 24GB of DDR4 RAM and a PCIe SSD which promises 2 to 3 times the speed of the regular SATA SSDs on its predecessor.

Lenovo's slim notebook leaves plenty of room for essential ports, including full-size HDMI and Ethernet ports, a mini DisplayPort out and 3 USB ports, plus an SD card reader. Unlike the X1 Carbon and many other thin systems, the T460s has a removable bottom with easy access to the RAM, storage and wireless cards so you can upgrade them on your own.Lenovo claims that the T460s's sealed-in 48.8 watt-hour battery will last for up to 10.5 hours on a charge. However, as with any laptop, In our testing, the T450s lasted a full 15 hours and 26 minutes with its extended battery, which is close to the 17 hours on Lenovo advertises on its site.

Users who are looking for more battery life and a lower price point will want to consider the ThinkPad T460, which will start at $909 and promises 14 hours of battery life thanks to its dual batteries. Like the T450s and several other ThinkPads, the 14-inch T460 uses Lenovo's Power Bridge technology, which combines an internal battery with a hot-swappable unit that's available in either 3-cell or 6-cell capacities. If you carry an extra battery with you, you can keep working unplugged for even longer, without ever having to shut the computer off. This heavier system starts at 3.8 pounds and is .83 inches thick, but it has room for an SD card reader to go with its 3 USB 3.0 ports, mini DisplayPort, HDMI and Ethernet connectors.

Unlike the T460s, the T460 can be configured with either a mechanical hard drive, a regular SATA SSD or a high-speed PCIe SSD. Its screen resolution tops out at 1920 x 1080, but it offers a slightly-better graphics option in the Nvidia GeForce 940MX; an integrated Intel GPU comes standard. If you want more performance and are willing to pay a higher price while lugging a heavier laptop, the ThinkPad T460p could be for you. This $1,249 laptop is .96-inches thick and weighs a full 4 pounds, but it offers Intel H Series, quad-core CPUs and up to a 2560 x 1440 display. It also features Power Bridge and promises up to 12 hours of endurance.Lenovo has also unveiled the $969 T560, which as the "5" in its name suggests, is the 15.6-inch companion to the T460. It starts at 5 pounds and is .88 inches thick, but it promises up to 16 hours of battery life with its dual batteries and packs up to a 2560 x 1440 display.
