Reviews for the HCL ME54

60% HCL ME54 - High-priced Average Performer
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The HCL ME54 is an average performer in different areas, but then again, it matches the same performance that you find on other notebooks in this range. Priced at Rs. 39,990, it’s not the cheapest notebook with those features. HCL claims that the ME54 has been designed and manufactured as an eco-friendly product. There are other brands offering similar features but with better build quality. There are several areas that HCL needs to improve on this notebook, beginning with the build quality. Had this notebook been designed better but bundled with much superior hardware or priced lower, we’d have recommended it.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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


P6200: The Pentium P6200 is an entry level CPU based on the Arrandale core. Compared to the Core i3-330M it does not feature HyperThreading leading to a slower multi-threaded performance.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2.2 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


HCL: HCL Infosystems LTd is an Indian IT shop with own laptop brand.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
