82% Review LG A520-T.AE31G (3D/2820QM) Notebook | Notebookcheck
Latecomer. While 3D with shutter glasses is state of the art and Toshiba 3D enters the market without eyeglasses, LG revives the old polarizer technology. But the FHD screen with its high contrast and the strong quad core hardware is interesting even without 3D.

55% LG X-Note A520-D 3D Notebook Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The LG X-Note A520-D 3D notebook is available in India at a price of Rs 79,990. This is a good notebook for those who are looking to upgrade from a laptop that is a few years old and would not mind upgrading to the latest specifications presently in the market. If one is looking out for a 3D gaming notebook at this price, this may not be the one. Though games are playable, the settings have to be toned down a lot. If one is interested in viewing 3D movies and images as well as other general usage, then this notebook would be a good option. However, our only real qualm with it is the price and for around the same price, one can get a decent gaming notebook with similar specifications.

LG reviews


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

» 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.  

2820QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


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.


2.5 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.

2.557 kg:


74.75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
