Reviews for the Kobalt G150

90% Kobalt G150 review
Source: Techradar English
Finally, there's the minor matter of money. The killer here is that GTX 485M graphics is a £381 upgrade option. That's right, nearly £400 for a lower clocked version of a card that goes for £200 in desktop trim. All told, it makes for a system that just breaches the £1,700 barrier. That's a whole hill of money. But if you want the best, you have to pay for it. If you can afford it, we doubt the Kobalt G150 will disappoint you.

As you are likely to find with most performance computers, the G150 certainly doesn’t come cheap. The basic model costs £1099 inc. VAT and features an Intel Core-i3 processor and a nVidia GTX460M graphics card. Our test machine, which boasts the quad core i7-2630QM processor and GTX 485M graphics card will set you back in excess of £1700 inc. VAT. Those who can’t afford this and don’t mind sacrificing some graphics performance could always save £320 and opt for the GTX 460M graphics card instead. There are so many different configuration options available with the G150 we would recommend taking a look at Kobalt’s G150 configurator which will let you select from a plethora of different parts to build your perfect machine.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 485M:

High End graphics card based on a full GF104 chip and significantly faster than the 480M.

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

» 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.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


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.


Kobalt: Kobalt Computers Ltd was incorporated in April 2004 to provide consumers and businesses with computer systems. Nearly into the fifth year of providing cutting edge desktop systems they expanded the range to include custom gaming and CAD (Computer Aided Design) Notebooks.


90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
