Asus’ A53T is powered by the Llano A6-3400M and 6GB of DDR3-1333 with graphics from the discrete HD6520G and the built in HD 6650M, which is apparently labelled as the HD6720G2. A 15.6" 1366×768 LCD gives you decent resolution on the road and the HDMI and D-Sub out give you better resolution when you are at home. The Tech Report were not incredibly impressed with the battery life, during movie playback it died after a bit over 3 hours, though still long enough to get through Avatar. Gaming was more than satisfactory at the native resolution of the monitor and will handle higher resolutions with the video out acceptably well. Head on over for the full review.

The A6 and A8 series APU’s
The A6 and A8 series APU’s are great mobile hardware. You’ll be able to play many games on the highest setting, and games like Crysis and Saints Row 3 on low/medium just fine. However, you will be bummed out if you are trying to work with programs that don’t support quad core. That includes emulators and various oldschool games.
