Reviews for the Novatech X65

80% Novatech X65 review
Source: Techradar English
A powerful all-round laptop that makes an ideal desktop replacement system As with Hi-Grade and Mesh, Novatech is a UK-based manufacturer that offers a range of affordable and feature-packed machines. The X65 stands out as it features a built-in Blu-ray drive. The Novatech X65 may lack the style of the Sony VAIO VPC-CW1S1E/R or Acer 5810TG-354932Mn, but provides an excellent specification within its conservative chassis.

Putting aside the budget processor, this laptop offers outstanding value for money and is therefore easy to recommend.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M: The GeForce GT 130M is a higher clocked GeForce 9650M GT with a slightly lower TDP (level of the 9600M GT). The performance differs according to the used type of memory (DDR3 up to 1066 MHz and DDR up to 600 MHz). PhysX is only supported in an SLI configuration.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

3.6 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

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.
