Reviews for the Novatech Xplora E16

70% Novatech Xplora E16 review
Source: PC Advisor English

The Novatech Xplora E16 comes close to filling the void between netbook and budget laptop. It's aimed at those looking for an affordable web-browsing machine with a little extra grunt than a netbook. While the Novatech Xplora E16's advantages over netbooks may tempt the odd customer from that sector, the Xplora's real competition comes from the other full-sized budget laptops. And compared to the cream of the sub-£500 models, it does sag. Too many of the components are underpowered compared to the alternatives at just £100 more. The likes of Sony and Toshiba offer considerably more for a little extra outlay.

Comment

ATI Radeon Xpress X1200: This is an onboard video chip and according AMD optimized for a good price/value. It is based on a X700 design but with less pixel- and vertex-pipelines. ATI Radeon Xpress X1200 is hardly apt for gamers. The graphic chip supports Windows Vista Aero surface and all 3D effects run fluently. Sometimes also called Radeon X1200.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

TF-20: Entry level single core processor based on the Sherman core. Due tot the low clock speed, small level 2 cache and old architecture only compareable to a 1.3 GHz Pentium SU2700 CPU.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


2.9 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.
