Reviews for the Cyberpower Zeus Hercules

50% CyberPowerPC Zeus Hercules
Source: Laptop Mag English
Combined with an Intel Core i7 processor and a 120GB SSD, the integrated Iris Pro 5200 GPU can't compete with the Nvidia's and AMDs of the world, but it's powerful enough to place the Hercules firmly in the conversation. But the $1,082 Hercules still has some labors to overcome, such as poor battery life, a lackluster display and an unresponsive keyboard.

Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200:

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


4750HQ: An Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.0 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.2 GHz. Offers an integrated Iris Pro Graphics 5200 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0": 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.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for 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.


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
