Reviews for the Samsung E251 T4200 Esilo
Premium brand but affordable. Bargain hunters can find Samsung's 15.6-inch E251 for 399 euros at various retailers. Is this a premium office notebook or a cheap mass-market product? It delivers well on performance and ergonomics, but its portability and screen quality give us pause for thought. Would fans of Samsung be better off keeping their distance? We tested the E251 from top to bottom.

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.
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.
