Reviews for the Novatech X15
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.

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.
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.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
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.
