Reviews for the Zepto Mythos A15

84% Review Zepto Mythos A15 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Waiting is over... After the first excitement about the new notebook series of the danish notebook producer Zepto at the beginning of last summer, Zepto disappeared from the news. However, it seems as if Zepto is now ready to actually deliver the new multimedia all-rounders with outstanding design to customers.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT: Successor of the 8600M GT and because of the smaller 65nm production process the card is higher clocked (and therefore faster) with the same current consumption.Furthermore, it features an improved video processor (VP3) and HybridPower to save current (in conjunction with the 9100M G).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


P9500:

The P9500 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo T9400 with only 25 Watt TDP.

15.4":

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

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.05 kg:

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


Zepto: A dinamarquesa Zepto foi fundada em 2002 com o propósito de fornecer produtos em informações tecnológicas para Mobile Electronics e Digital Home. Hoje a Zepto é o maior fabricante na Europa de portáteis para uso pessoal (se você contar as fábricas na Turquia) e é representada em 19 paises. A Zepto é um pequeno fabricante de portáteis dinamarquês com pequena participação no mercado de ações europeu. A partir de 2007, algumas análises de portáteis Zepto foram publicadas, especialmente na Europa central.


88%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
