Reviews for the Acer eMachines D620

60% eMachines D620-261G16Mi review
Source: Techradar English
Great usability and excellent software, but performance and mobility are poor. While the eMachines brand may not be as well known as its rivals, it takes many successful design cues from its parent company Acer. As a result, the D620-261G16Mi (£276 inc. VAT) is a highly usable laptop, although it falls short in terms of raw performance. The eMachines D620-261G16Mi is excellent in many ways, but is also flawed in many others. Despite its compact design, excellent usability and software package, the low performance and battery life restrict its potential, so consider your needs before buying.

Comment

ATI Radeon Xpress X1200: This is an onboard video chip and according AMD optimized for a good price/value. It is based on a X700 design but with less pixel- and vertex-pipelines. ATI Radeon Xpress X1200 is hardly apt for gamers. The graphic chip supports Windows Vista Aero surface and all 3D effects run fluently. Sometimes also called Radeon X1200.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Netbook CPU from AMD with two cores and a slightly better performance than the Intel Atom CPU. Supports 64 Bit and Virtualization.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
