Reviews for the Hi-Grade Notino W5900

60% Hi-Grade Notino W5900 review
Source: Techradar English
An eye-catching look and strong components, but performance is lacking. Hi-Grade is a UK-based manufacturer that offers entry-level laptops at affordable prices. The Notino W5900 combines an eye-catching design with impressive components but, ultimately, performance fails to impress. While the W5900 will be mainly sold on its looks, its impressive specification adds to its value.

Intel Extreme Graphics 2: Intel Extreme Graphics 2 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Intel 852 / 855 GM, GME, GMV chipset for Centrino, Pentium 4 and Celeron based laptops. It is hardly suited for 3D-games. No Aero support.

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

15.6": 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. However 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.


2.7 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.


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.


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