Reviews for the Polywell PolyNote 714AH

40% Polywell PolyNote 714AH 17-inch Desktop Replacement Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
While Polywell makes some very strong high performance laptop systems, their value oriented laptops such as the PolyNote 714AH fall short of being real values. The systems have solid construction and some peripheral ports that many companies are dropping but they short change consumers on features such as RAM, hard drive space and graphics. For $1000, there are much better options for consumers looking for a 17-inch laptop.

Comment

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.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). 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.

17.0":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.1 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Polywell: US-American computer manufacturer without considerable international relevance regarding laptops.


40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
