Reviews for the Packard Bell EasyNote LM86-GN-005UK

Packard Bell - EasyNote LM review
Source: IT Reviews English
Budget desktop replacements rarely set hearts racing, and the EasyNote LM from Packard Bell is no different. That said, it's a solid laptop and the Core i3 processor will cope perfectly well as long as you don't demand too much from it. If possible, we'd recommend you try out the keyboard before you buy, as it won't be everyone's cup of tea.

The EasyNote LM ticks all the right boxes in terms of a budget desktop replacement, but there were a few things that soured my experience with it. The dodgy screen hinge covers were disappointing, while the keyboard and touchpad buttons could have been better. I’d also like to see a higher resolution screen, but that would no doubt push the price up. Overall, it’s a fairly average desktop replacement, at a fairly average price.

Comment

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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.

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