Reviews for the Systemax Pursuit 4164

60% Systemax Pursuit 4164 14-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Systemax's Pursuit 4164 is certainly an affordable laptop with a price tag just below $600. They are able to achieve such a price because this is an older systems design that has some advantages and disadvantages. While the system does feature an ExpressCard slot and FireWire port unlike many new budget laptops, the system is stuck using older integrated graphics not rated for HD video streams and an older Wi-Fi adapter. If these aren't really issues though, it does make for a decent and slightly smaller than average budget laptop.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

14.0": 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.


Systemax: Systemax, Inc. is an American computer hardware company based in USA which assembles, supports and markets a wide range of personal computers, notebook computers, computer related and industrial products in North America and Europe. The global market share according laptops is low and mainly concentrated to the US-market.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
