Reviews for the Packard Bell Easynote NJ65

70% Packard Bell EasyNote NJ65-AU-020UK review
Source: Techradar English

Style, usability and performance from this great laptop. Packard Bell's rejuvenation, following its acquisition by Acer, continues apace. The EasyNote NJ65-AU-020UK is further evidence that the company is heading in the right direction and it is a great all-round machine with good performance and a unique design. We like the EasyNote NJ65-AU-020UK a lot. It's stylish, usable and will provide enough performance for the average user, at a price that's right.

Packard Bell has been around for an age. Once, like most PC manufacturers, it was known for producing a range of anonymous beige boxes, but the glorious 1990's have long since passed in favour of the glossy blackness of the new millennium. As an affordable and portable laptop, the Packard Bell NJ65 is well worth considering. It has all the right features, performs well and even throws in one or two extra features into the bargain. However, it's let down by a mediocre keyboard, which is worth testing out before you hand over your cash.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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

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.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.4 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.
