Reviews for the Novatech X16

70% Novatech X16 HD Pro Notebook
Source: Driverheaven English
The Novatech X16 may not be the most exciting entry-level notebook available on the market, but overall it is built well and has a reasonable specification for the price. It is subtle in design so will suit both home and workplace environments. Performance was what you would expect from a notebook with this specification - it copes with menial duties well but struggles a little with more demanding tasks and gaming. I'm surprised at how poor the X16's battery life is. In Silent Mode with the Power Saver plan enabled it didn't even manage three hours of usage. This detracts from its appeal in a corporate environment as most users are likely to require at least four hours of battery life.

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.

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


T4200:

Entry class dual core CPU with 1 MB level 2 cache and no virtualization technology. Compared to the Core 2 Duo line, some power saving mechanism are deactivated.

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.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in 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.


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
