Reviews for the Packard Bell EasyNote LJ61-RB-010

60% Packard Bell EasyNote LJ61
Source: Digital Versus English
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.

Comment

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.

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

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).

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.

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.


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.
