Reviews for the Cyberpower Xplorer X5-7900

80% Cyberpower Xplorer X5-7900 15.4-inch Thin and Light Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Cyberpower's Xplorer X5-7900 is a low cost high performance laptop that makes a few compromises in order to keep costs down. The system is clearly one of the faster on the market thanks to Intel Core 2 Duo T series processor and the incredibly large 500GB hard drive. All of this performance does reduce the battery life somewhat compared to other systems in the same price range. The system is free of trialware found on other laptops but it is also free of any software bundles at all.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT: Successor of the 8600M GT and because of the smaller 65nm production process the card is higher clocked (and therefore faster) with the same current consumption.Furthermore, it features an improved video processor (VP3) and HybridPower to save current (in conjunction with the 9100M G).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


P9600:

The P9600 is a middle class dual-core CPU of the Core 2 Duo line and similar to the T9550 (except for the lower TDP of 25 vs 35W). The performance of the P9600 should be sufficient for most applications and games of 2009.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


Cyberpower: CyberPower, Inc. is (as they assert theirselves) one of the nation-wide leading computer system manufacturers. As published in the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2003, they were the fastest growing private company in Los Angeles.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
