Asus K42J Review




Asus’ new line of laptops brings a number of the latest Core i3 and Core i5 processors. The Asus K42J is among them — a typical 14-inch laptop, running a Core i5 430M @ 2.26GHz.

The laptop feels a bit heavy and thick on the side — not something you’d prefer lugging around with. The unit has a black glossy finish (with a slight dark printed accent) from the lid right up to the palm rest (expect this to be messy with finger-prints).

The usual ports are found on both sides — 3 USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, VGA and LAN. The SD/MMC card reader is slightly hidden smack in the bottom front, right below the trackpad.

The full-sized keyboard comes with chiclet-type keys, spaced generously for comfortable touch-typing. Keyboard orientation seems normal with no odd placement of keys or additional special keys although would have been nice to have a bigger Enter key in here.

The trackpad is a little flushed to the left and inherits the same design and polished surface as the palm rest but is a bit recessed. The trackpad area is a bit small considering the size of the laptop and the clickers are not separated between the left and right buttons.

The 14-inch display is bright and clear, with a basic resolution of 133×768 pixels (which is usually the standard resolution of most laptops nowadays).

For a summary of the laptop’s specifications, here’s a screenshot from Speccy:

Asus K42JR A1 specs:
14.1″ display @ 1366×768 pixel
Intel Core i5 430M @ 2.26GHz (2 Cores, 4 Threads)
3GB DDR3 RAM
500GB HDD
EG Park (ATI Radeon HD5450 1GB DDR3)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.0
DVD+RW
Weight: 2.2kg
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit


 

The processor is a dual-core 2.26GHz Core i5 with 4 threads and can go up to 2.53GHz on Turbo Boost.

On a related note, this is the second time I’ve encountered that “EG Park” in the specs but if my additional digging is correct, it looks like an ATI Radeon HD5450 with 1GB DDR3 RAM.

The Radeon HD5450 is an entry-level graphics card for laptops that supports DirectX 11. It should be able to perform just barely enough (low to medium detail settings) at its maximum resolution of 1366×768.

Windows Experience Index gives the Core i5 430M a sub-score of 6.7 and a base score of 4.9 due to the graphics performance.

PassMark Ratings:
CPU Mark: 2630.4
2D Graphics Mark: 281.9
3D Graphics Mark: 338.0
Memory Mark: 559.2
Disk Mark: 826.8
Passmark Rating: 1019.7

The laptop comes with only a 4400mAh Li-Ion battery, which is not really that much so it’s not a surprise that the unit can only do around 2 hours of battery life on a full single charge.

The unit also comes with a pre-installed facial recognition software that works using the built-in webcam so you can login to Windows by merely posing at the camera when prompted.

We’re not sure with the actual price of this specific model (there are like over a dozen different configurations) but if my guess is right, it’s between Php39k to Php42k.

    K42J laptops are 35k in foxcom gilmore :)

    got my ASUS K42Jk from PC LIVE for P 33,900 (originally P35,900, P2000 discount if cash based) with the ff specifications:

    Intel Core i3 2.26 Ghz
    ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145 1GB DDR3
    3GB RAM DDR3
    No OS
    and the other specifications mentioned in your review.

    the only problems with it is teh touch pad, which feels like a bit rough, and the speakers which anytime just makes a crackling noise when it tries to produce a sound from any applications running (even system sounds). it only goes back to normal after rebooting. i don’t know if i was just unlucky with the purchase.

    it still a good buy after all.

  3. riffcracker says:

    forgot the hard drive, it’s 320 GB :)

  4. yuga says:

    @Wakocoke – there are many model configurations – from Core i3 to Core i5. Price ranges from 33k to 45k.

    i got my Asus kj42 laptop last week but not sure which kj42. here are the specs

    Intel core i5 450M
    2GB ddr3 ram(upgraded to 4GB)
    320GB HD
    no OS
    Nvidia GeForce 310M
    39,990k @ pc-gilmore, gilmore i.t. center

    great laptop in terms of performance due to the fast processor and graphics card.
    I had a few problems though. btw, it’s my 2nd unit since the first had a factory defect. There is only one socket for audio output and input. For my 2nd replaced unit, the audio output for headphones is choppy/muddy but fine with speakers. the first unit(with factory defect) did not have the same problem.
    Since the laptop uses Nvidia Cuda-switchable graphics between the built in intel hd graphics and nvidia 310m, the W7 experience index gets the results of the intel built in graphics card. Same happens when i check if the laptop is compatible with a game in systemrequirementslab.com.

    i tried installing crysis and it worked somewhat smoothly on medium graphics. nvidia cuda switched to the nvidia 310M graphics card. however, in warcraft, it is quite choppy.
    as i know about nvidia cuda, it automatically switches when the application requires higher end graphics from the default intel graphics card which saves power. so i think in warcraft, the laptop still uses the intel graphics card, making it choppy. can someone tell me a way to manually switch the graphics card?

  6. Wakocoke says:

    oops sorry, akala ko k42JC :)

  7. cindy says:

    too bad the battery don’t have a long-life knowing that it comes with only a 4400mAh Li-Ion battery.. so that means you need to take with you a charger ALL the time

  8. beef says:

    @qwertio — right now the only thing you can do is to get the latest profiles for the optimus graphics switcher. Its those profiles which determine when Optimus switches from your integrated to discrete graphics solution. It’s like an antivirus dat file for your graphics chipset. you need updated ones. Puzzles me though, cuz Warcraft is a pretty old game, there should already be an Optimus profile for that in the default Nvidia driver install.. and some users have said that it does switch in WC. (second hand info lang tho).. Try getting the latest Nvidia Verde drivers?

  12. Peejhay says:

    oh and one more thing na gusto ko dito sa laptop..

    hindi siya nainit :D.

  13. qwertio says:

    @beef: thanks.. ill look into the profiles..

    @Peejhay: as i know, there is a headset option when u plug a device. so i think you can use both.

  14. Ebengt0t says:

    @peejay

    r u sure? 1 lang 3.5mm jack?

    Pero ok na yung specs nya compared sa iba.

  15. Jay says:

    Yuga,
    I’m planning to buy 1 laptop and 1 netbook by the end of October this year. Can you please have a review for the following units:

    Asus A42/K42f
    HP Mini 210 Vivienne Tam Edition
    Samsung R430
    Toshiba Satellite C650-18F

    or do you have any recommendation/s which one is better.

    Thanks!

    Jay

  16. jaz says:

    I got my Asus K42J at Octagon SM Megamall with a free Brother Multifunction wireless printer (scanner/printer/photocopier) at 38K. Here are the specs:
    Core I3 -350M 2.26ghz
    ATI Radeon 512MB
    14inch LED
    HDD 500GB
    Memory 2GB
    OS Windows 7
    I have not explored it that much yet but i like its keyboard,nice typing experience. In terms of appearance, do you think its attractive enough? Which is better Asus or Toshiba in terms of appearance and performance? Anyone give your opinion on this.

  17. qwertio says:

    i have a kj42 laptop but i have a problem with the audio. When I use my X-mini speakers on it, it sounds fine. however, when i use ANY earphone, it sounds muddy, unclear.

  20. mrie says:

    hello, i want to know how much there the asus a42/k42f? is is good to buy?

    thanks..

  21. Jay says:

    @Mrie, according to my friends Asus A42/K42f is good (it’s within my budget also..hahaha). Current selling price here in KSA is around SAR2,200.00 (Php26,400.00), expect it to be higher there due to taxes. I planning to buy nxt week.

  22. Alvin says:

    I bought the 15 in version, K52JC last week for 35K.

    Specs:
    15.6in. LED
    Intel® Core™i5-450
    2.0Gb DDR3
    320Gb
    nVidia® GeForce® 310M 1.0Gb
    No OS.

    Will you recommend installing Windows 7 64 bit over 32 bit version given these specs?

  23. carlo says:

    @alvin, san mo bnili na 35k? cash ba kya 35k lng?

  24. mrie says:

    thanks jay..i will buy tommorow, is there a big difference without the nvidia ge force??

  25. Alvin says:

    Yep cash and after haggling hehe. I bought it at pc corner gilmore

  26. I have my ASUS-K42Jc Core i-3 with 2.26Ghz, 500Gb HDD, 4Gb DDR3, 1Gb ATI-Radeon Mobility, Windows 7 64 bit (downgrade to 32 bit and it’s a success) only the ratings become 4.9 to 4.8. It has a Face Recognition Log on features. This laptop is what we call the “Jack of all Trades” which is good for gaming (Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter 1 & 2, Swat 4, Doom 3, F.E.A.R., Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 and etc.) and excellent in multi-tasking and a very wide range when it comes to Wi-Fi. My Negative Comments for ASUS is their “touch pad” which is not that good and smooth and their speakers which is not that good (needs improvement)..alternative solution is to buy a speaker, keyboard and mouse..and don’t forget to buy your cooling pad.. :)

  34. barcode says:

    Peejhay’s right.. only one outlet… i did not notice this before so now i’m going to look for USB headset hoping it can accommodate both headset and mic..

  35. Jessie Yaneza says:

    barcode
    can you give a feedback if the USB headset fit on you asus k42j? If its fit…I’m gonna buy one for my asus.
    I like my k42j, I use it everyday 1 hr in the morning and almost 3 hours at night.

  36. dennis says:

    got a k42j i5, 4g ram, 500g hd and 2g ati video card @ P36k. works better than expected and a breeze. my only complaint is cramped usb ports on the left side.

  37. spyler says:

    Guys, meron ako asus a42jc.
    core i5 siya. Napansin ko lang kasi nung nag eedit ako sa sony vegas 10 mabilis siya walang problema. Pero nung sinaksak ko na yung AC adaptor niya, bigla mag drop yung speed ng processor at mawawala ang turbo boost so in result babagal ang editing ko sa HD. Pero pag tinanggal mo ang AC adaptor niya bibilis ulit at meron na siya ulit turbo boost. Any one experience the same problem?

  38. Ty says:

    i bought mine last june at complink for 34k. it’s a good buy. though i do have some complaints. the keyboards have good feedback for typing but it gets tiring on gaming. maybe its just me or the wide spacing of the keys. audio is somewhat good. i just turn off the srs option when in laptop mode and turn it on when using ext speakers. graphics are okay. hd movies look crisp. games run better on low-to-medium settings.2007 and older games can do high settings. max cpu temp while gaming heats up to 85º C. lag is acceptable but when hdd runs at 55ºC temp it freezes up to about 10 seconds while playing. games played are mafia 2 (med-high settings), nba2k11 (high), bad company 2 (med), just cause 2 (med), call of duty 4(high), swat 4(high), sniper ghost warrior(med), halo combat evolved(med), sniper elite(high). one more thing, my screen developed a white vertical line on the left side. i dunno if its a hardware or just a driver problem.still googling it. it’s still in warranty but i dont want the lcd to be replaced just yet with a refurbished one. anybody who has the same problem though?

  39. laura says:

    hi!

    good thing i saw this thread… i have k42jc… but its video card, ati radeon, says its only 512mb… can i increase it to 1g or 2g like you guys? i dont mind spending if i can make mine faster…

    ooh, can the built in camera be changed too? or do i need to buy a new usb cam? i really like asus as my brand but so sad they cant increase their built in cam to 1.3 megapix like acer…

  53. rexus says:

    pde ba siyang installan ng windows xp? or pang windows 7 lng talaga siya pde?

  54. @kyonshii: gnyan din prob ko. pero naayos ko na, update mo sa latest BIOS mo ung asus. You can get the latest asus BIOS sa support ng asus. Next is you will need to download the latest VGA driver pra sa NVIDIA 310m cuda 1gb, then, open the nvidia control panel, pnta ka sa 3d settings, then iset mo sa “global high quality”. Restart PC, then go to dxdiag and see 1680mb for display. Enjoy!

    @ashe: bought ours for 31.5k after a ton of haggling sa north edsa 4th floor gilmore/asus store.

    @rexus: pde mong installan ng kht anong os yan, xp, vista, pero I would advise you to use windows 7 nlng. Much better, pero, kng xp guy k, ok din lng.

    Hi. Got my K42JC-VX167 the other day. Problem is the DVD won’t play. It recognizes and play CDs but when I insert a DVD it doesn’t even recognize it in the DVD drive. Any settings I need check or configure? Hope it’s not a hardware malfunction. I still have trauma from that damn HP Pavilion laptop with overheating and videocard issues which HP doesn’t admit. Damn you HP.

  58. ashe says:

    @digiknowzone – thankyou. try ko sa gilmore mkipagsapalaran. nice specs for just a 32k.

  59. @arnel: haven’t tried my dvd player yet, but if you thinkg there’s a problem, try updating your OS and drivers. Sometimes, the suppliers forgot to install proper drivers. Just like mine, they forgot to install and update the driver of the 1gb cuda vcard.

    @ashe: No problem, a schoolmate of mine both the same model as the one I bought in PC Gilmore/ASUS in SM North Annex 4th floor, besides NEO Shop.

  67. pingoi says:

    bought my k42jc at sm marikina, i returned the first one because of a dead pixel on screen, some k42jc’s on market has different configurations, first one i got has (aside from the processor, memory, and video which is an nVidia 310M 1gb)

    320gb seagate 5400 rpm hdd (second one has a WD scorpio 320gb 5400rpm drive)

    TSSTCorp(SAMSUNG ?) DVDRW Optical drive (second one has Slimtype DVD A DS8a4S)

    weird whilst the same model, the first one only installs upto v189 geforce drivers for nvidia optimus(newer versions just freezes and have to resort into a driver rollback), while the second one can have upto v257 forceware drivers, all from the asus site

    bios versions differ 1st one has v210 and second one has v208

  68. pingoi says:

    p.s. the exact model i got was an Asus K42Jc VX-167

    solved the optimus drivers freeze issue (updated to v214 BIOS) and can install latest forceware even from nvidia site

  69. @mandirigma: yes,obviously, “Windows 7” is the 32-bit.^^

  70. Jaymar says:

    San po mkikita yong power 4 gear sa laptop asus?

  71. search mo sa start mo ung “control deck” dun, pde ka mamili ng mga options kng anong power4gear mode ang ggmtin mo. Pde mo ring ipress ung “Fn” button + “Space Bar” pra magshift sa different power4gear options. Hope that helps.

    im having problem with asus k42jc with windows xp 32/64bit version, i sick and tired for the nvidia video card issues coz i cant find the right driver for it, but when you used win7 32/64bit you can used the CDs that came with the laptop. how can i make the nvidia video card issues on windows xp, i want to make it work coz i need it on my job.

    can somebody help me with this. thanks.

    • spylder says:

      It is not designed for winXP.
      No problems with win7 32/64.

    • If your having problems with the Nvidia driver(even w/ windows XP), here’s what you need to do:

      1) Update your BIOS to the latest version
      2) Update your Nvidia driver(from the official nvidia website).

      If you still encounter problems, let me know.

    i have an asus k42jc, inupdate ko ung BIOS sa version 214, after nun naghhang na ung windows ko di na mkalogin. help pls? im using Windows 7 64 bit

  76. sir how did you flash ur asus k42jc laptop? its a very critical/risky job to do so pls make sure you flashed your bios properly.. you may have to use a latest winflash program.

    also if you’re having problems about the most discussed nvidia problems.. search for the lasest drivers of this “nb9x/nb10x optimus”. matagal ng rumours sa gilmore ave. ang incompatiblity ng latest drivers sa nvidia cuda 310m particularly. (at first i thought some of samsung’s working crew are just sabotaging asus products so people wont buy their laptops..) but sadly to discovered that it was really true. nagulat ako ng half of my whole files from drive c: were gone before my eyes. oo nawala while im using my desktop..

  77. specs ng binili kong laptop from ASUS store:

    around march this year ko pa sha binili
    (exactly 31,000php w/o freebies but who needs it anyway?) and guess what? included na ang genuine windows 7 ultimate (x64) na accidentally pa nga dahil nasama sa package ng box ung hard copy. which is babayaran mo pa ng plus 5000php)

    • Here:
      Update your ASUS bios to the 212-update. Download latest nvidia driver. Remember to use the ASUS EZFlash software at the BIOS boot.

      And voila! Nvidia will work.

      digiknowzone,

      i updated my asus bios to 214 (latest, downloaded from asus website, under support) ok naman ung update. pero etong nvidia ko eh talagang freeze-screen or hangtime ako, i downloaded two Nvidia graphics updates (one from the asus website, and one from the Nvidia website) at parehas silang hindi gumagana. ano kaya problema nung akin? sinunod ko naman ung instructions. 64bit pala ung laptop ko.

    • rein says:

      just used the bundle software and drivers para hindi ka magkaproblema…. ganon lang ginawa ko…. di sya compatible sa mga latest driver na nvidia…. this laptop is bundled with its own CDs….

    • rein says:

      saka di pede hindi iinstall yun inteld hd graphix kasi yan ang una nya hahanapin kung imamanual mong iupdate yun nvdia mo….

    • rein says:

      katakot kasi mag update ng bios nya…. risky masyado saka di rin sasagutin ng company pag ngkaproblema sa pagupdate ng bios….

    • Jay Quing says:

      so far mr.rein, nung ngupdate me bios e walang problema. kasi kung may problema eh hindi na ako makakagamit ng laptop ko. ung lang talaga sa nvidia graphics, gusto ko mautilize ang function nya gawa ng mrami me games na talagang mamaw sa system requirements. at tska hindi ganung ka-“intelligent” ang switching ng Optimus ng Nvidia, update lang daw ang kailangan. thanks na rin sa info.

  84. I realized more a new challenge on this fat loss issue. One issue is that good nutrition is very vital when dieting. A massive reduction in fast foods, sugary food, fried foods, sugary foods, pork, and white colored flour products may be necessary. Retaining wastes parasites, and poisons may prevent ambitions for fat loss. While a number of drugs temporarily solve the challenge, the awful side effects are not worth it, and they never present more than a short-term solution. It can be a known idea that 95% of fad diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this website.

    bought a newer descendant of K series. even just with i3, equipping it with 4gig ram does all the work. speed’s like an i5 and NVidia CUDA working well with games.
    asus rocks.
