Reviews for the Novatech X15

80% Novatech X15 GT review
Source: Techradar English
Relatively cheap laptop in quite good graphics shocker. Although aimed squarely at home users, Novatech's X15GT is actually a bit of a wolf in sheep's clothing: it packs surprisingly decent gaming performance into a sub-£500 machine. Despite the battery issues, the Novatech laptop does perform significantly better than laptops in its price range in every other department. You're hardly going to be blasting your way through a high-end game like Crysis on it, but it will do for a (brief) World of Warcraft session on the move.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce G 105M: Higher clocked 9300M GS and therefore a bit faster. Still manufactured in 65nm. Supports Hybrid-SLI with HybridPower and GeForceBoost (in conjunction with the right Nvidia chipset).

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 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.


T6400: Entry level dual core processor based on the Penryn core with only 2 MB level 2 cache and a low clock speed.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


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.


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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
