While Ultrabooks and hybrids are all the rage these days, the Asus N550JV is the answer if all you really want is a larger, more powerful laptop for the home that will tackle pretty much anything you throw at it. It has a fast processor that's comfortable with intensive tasks, and dedicated graphics for playing games at reasonable levels. It's not a gaming laptop, but it's more than good enough for many people.
The screen is good, the design is understated yet attractive and there's a Blu-ray drive for watching HD films. It's the perfect laptop for families and as an alternative to a desktop or all-in-one PC.
