Reviews for the Hi-Grade Notino R5500

70% Hi-Grade Notino R5500 review
Source: Techradar English
There's a lot to like here, with the Hi-Grade offering good competition. Although not a specialist in rugged machines, Hi-Grade – a company based in the UK – has released the Notino R5500. There's a great deal to like about Hi-Grade's R5500 and not a lot to dislike. If you're after a semi-rugged machine for using on a daily basis you could certainly do a lot worse than this.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).

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

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.


T6500:

Entry level Penryn based dual-core CPU with a small 2MB level 2 cache and FSB800. Similar to the T6570 but without VT-x.

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.


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


Hi-Grade: Hi-Grade Computers was founded in 1986 as a small computer reseller in UK. It is a manufacturer home and business PCs, and a provider of computer solutions to government, education and the corporate sector. The laptop market share is very low.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
