Reviews for the Novatech V14 743

70% Novatech V14 Laptop
Source: Hardwareheaven English
If it wasn’t for Novatech’s lackadaisical approach to build quality the V14 would be a decent machine.  Performance is quite reasonable thanks to the use of an ULV platform rather than the inferior Atom platform as it produces enough power to play 720p content smoothly. The most impressive aspect of the V14 is the screen. Novatech have used a good quality panel that has decent viewing angles, deep colours and, thanks to the LED-backlight it is more than bright enough to use outdoors.

60% Novatech V14 4100 review
Source: Techradar English
We've seen a range of laptops from Novatech, from regular devices right up to high-end gaming machines, but the V14 4100 is the first CULV system. The Novatech V14 4100 has a lot to offer for the money. Costing the same as a high-end netbook, its portability is only marginally less, yet the reasonable performance, large interface and excellent screen make it a lot more practical for frequent daily use.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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.


Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.


743: Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) processor for small and light subnotebooks. Does not support Speedstep (more power consumption in idle mode), 64 Bit, and Virtualization (VT-x).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


1.6 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Novatech: This British Computershop also sells laptops with its own brand. The marketshare is very low and there don't exist many laptop reviews for Novatech laptops.


65%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
