As an entry-level laptop, the Packard Bell LJ61 is comfortable to use and is a perfectly acceptable machine for office use and web browsing that won't break the bank. Its widescreen display is an attractive feature, even if the quality isn't quite up to scratch. There are, however, much more solidly built laptops that offer better performance for only a little bit more more cash.

Designed as a laptop for your front room rather than your desktop, the Packard Bell EasyNote LJ61 has got film buffs firmly in its sights. As an entry-level laptop, the Packard Bell LJ61 is comfortable to use and is a perfectly acceptable machine for office use and web browsing that won't break the bank. Its widescreen display is an attractive feature, even if the quality isn't quite up to scratch. There are, however, much more solidly built laptops that offer better performance for only a little bit more more cash.

Equally useful for the home or office is the high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity on offer. Unfortunately, Bluetooth is not included for short-range wireless data transfers. Although the EasyNote TJ65-AU-052UK is a usable and likeable machine, its limited power makes it tough to recommend it against its rivals, and you will find you get more for your money with the Samsung R580 and Dell Inspiron 1564.

Note that the Packard Bell EasyNote LJ75 exists in several versions. The version we tested, the LJ75-JP-258FR, is a high-end model. Other LJ75 models use lower performance Intel Core i3 and i5 processors. The Packard Bell EasyNote LJ75 offers a high performance configuration. Comfortable and responsive, it lacks a good screen and could have been better designed to attract a wider market.

Comment

Packard Bell: Packard Bell is a subsidiary of Taiwan-based Acer. It is a name used by two different consumer electronics companies. The first was an American radio manufacturer founded in 1926, that later became a defense contractor and manufacturer of other consumer electronics, such as television sets. Teledyne acquired the business in 1978. In 1986, investors bought the name for a newly formed personal computer manufacturer. Originally the company produced discount computers in the US, later computers were produced for the European market. NEC took it over in the late 1990s. Acer acquired it in 2008. In spite of the similarity of their names, there has never been any corporate connection between the original or later Packard Bell and Hewlett Packard, or Bell System. Packard Bell is an international notebook manufacturer. Many years, the company focussed ruggedized laptops.

Packard Bell reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570: Lower middle-class GPU that features a low shader count and a 64 Bit memory bus but a high clock speed. Similar to the desktop Radeon 4550. Supports Avivo HD and DirectX 10.1.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470: Entry level DirectX 11 chip with GDDR5 support but only 80 shader cores. Supports Eyefinity (up to 4 monitors) and 8-ch HD audio over HDMI. Performance on par with the old GeForce 8600M GT.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

ATI Radeon HD 3200: Onboard (shared Memory) graphics chip (on RS780M chipset) based on the HD 2400 graphics core. It also features the UVD video engine to decode HD videos. Beware: Under Windows XP the HD 3200 may have no 2D accelleration because of a driver problem.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650: The Mobility HD 4650 is based on the Desktop 4650 architecture, but features a lower clock rate of memory and core. Depending on the core clock (450-550MHz possible) and the used memory (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3 with 600-800 MHz possible) the mobile 4650 can show a different performance. The current consumption of the chip alone ranges from 15-25W. Features Avivo HD video features.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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. 

AMD Turion X2: The Turion X2 (without 64) is based on the Turion X2 Ultra, but has only 1024 MB L2 Cache and is therefore slower (performance compareable to the old Turion 64 X2). Because of new parts from the K10 architecture, the CPU should be more energy efficient.

RM-72:

Griffin based entry-level dual core processor. The cores are still based on the old K8 architecture (memory controller is newer).

Intel Core i5:

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

AMD Athlon II:

M320:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based only partially on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to a 1.8 Celeron Dual Core. The CPU supports 64 Bit and Virtualization.


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.

17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 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.

3.4 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


74.7%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
