Reviews for the Packard Bell EasyNote TJ65

Second League? Packard Bell wants to principally score by those customers who want to a play bit, work a bit but especially want a lot of multimedia. The value for money ratio should also be alright. Will the TJ65 turn out to be a cheapskate or can it supply solid quality for a fairly low price?

While not a bad machine by any stretch, we weren't overly impressed with the last Packard Bell (PB) machine we looked at, the Easynote TJ65-AU-010UK. Let's find out if the Acer subsidiary can convince us this time around with its higher-specced EasyNote TJ65-AU-031UK. Despite a slightly unresponsive touchpad, the Packard Bell EasyNote TJ65-AU-031UK offers good value for money, making it a prime candidate for those looking for a capable, all-round laptop on a budget.

A stylish and well-specified laptop that offers great value for money.  Packard Bell is renowned for offering good value machines at prices that are hard to beat, but in the past we've often been left wanting when it comes to designs that stand out. The EasyNote TJ65-AU-010UK looks set to change this, offering a highly stylish design at an impressively low price. Overall, despite its flawed office and multimedia capabilities, we really like the EasyNote TJ65-AU-010UK. It's a stylish, well made and competent machine.

A budget model, but does it impress? Packard Bell is renowned for its affordable laptop ranges, but it’s rare that they excite. Recently, however, it seems that more time and effort has been spent on the design side of things, and the EasyNote TJ65 is a great example of this. We’re very impressed by the Packard Bell EasyNote TJ65. Sure, there are more powerful options, but if just need a machine to edit documents or browse the internet on, and put quality and style ahead of processor specifications, then this may be the machine for you.

Before the EasyNote NJ65 came along, it had been many years since we reviewed a PC from Packard Bell. However, now that it's been acquired by Acer, the company is going through a bit of a <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">UK</st1:place></st1:country-region> revival. Assaulting the budget end of the market is its EasyNote range and today we're looking at the NJ65's larger yet slightly cheaper cousin, the 15.6in TJ65, which can be yours for just £450. Packard Bell has put together a fairly good system for an attractive price, but it's not without its flaws and it doesn't stand out from the crowd in any particular way.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce G 105M: Higher clocked 9300M GS and therefore a bit faster. Still manufactured in 65nm. Supports Hybrid-SLI with HybridPower and GeForceBoost (in conjunction with the right Nvidia chipset).

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

» 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.


T4300:

Entry - middle 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.

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.


2.66 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.


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.
