My System Specs


Well as you said the F/JR are different video options. Now according to the Asus site there are only two main base models of the K52 in Canada and those are the K52F and the K52JR. The F is an integrated Intel video solution and the Jr is the Ati Mobility Radeon 5470.

Now any of the numbers that follow the base model number indicate different configurations. This usually indicates a different CPU, for example these machines could have any of the following CPU's:

Intel® Core™ i5 Processor 540M/520M/450M/430M : 2.53 GHz - 2.26 GHz, with Turbo Boost up to 3.06/2.93/2.93/2.53 GHz;
Intel® Core™ i3 Processor 370M/350M/330M : 2.4 GHz - 2.13 GHz,
Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor P6000 : 1.86 GHz

Now generally you will only see i5 and i3 chips and usually only one or two of each.

The K52JR-QHDA1-CBIL and the K52JR-QA1-CB both have the i3 350M. Really the only difference I have seen between the two is the battery. It lists a 6 cell for the QHDA1 but I cannot find out what the battery with the QA1 is. The thing is there are some part numbers that are issued because that "exact" model are only available to certain box stores/warehouse joints, and that is why you can have to different product numbers and yet have the same specs.

As for the K52JR-A1 it has the core i5 430M CPU.

Hope that helps.
