Reviews for the Zepto Nox A15

70% Zepto Nox A15: straightforward and snappy
Source: APC Mag English
While the Nox A15 is a power user’s notebook, and shouldn’t be expected to have the most impressive battery life, we were quite happy with the results of our DVD run down, in which the Nox A15 lasted a good two hours and 15 minutes. Our model included a 9-cell battery at extra cost, so consider this when opting to upgrade or not. This test is considered a worst-case scenario of sorts, due to the high strain on the battery, and subsequently you should expect to see longer battery life under normal circumstances.

90% Zepto Nox A15 review
Source: Techradar English
It's a well-made laptop that disappoints slightly on the benchmarks. But the fact is that you're getting a very nice bit of kit which will chow down on most games, provided you keep the settings in the mid-range. Yes, it's a little under a grand, but the Nox A15 will function admirably as a desktop replacement. And being able to play games like GRID on the train is just plain awesome, If a little nauseating.

An excellent performer, but you'll be paying extra for the admittedly great design of this laptop.

71% Zepto Nox A15 laptop - a grand's worth of cool
Source: Hexus English

Zepto's aesthetically-pleasing Nox A15 uses Intel's Core 2 mobile CPU and NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT graphics card to create a decent-performing 15.4in notebook that does most things well. Performance is good across the board, and the discrete graphics card makes a decent fist of gaming at the excellent screen's native resolution of 1,680x1,050. There isn't a lot we can say that will detract from the attractiveness of the Nox A15: it's competent. However, as much good as there is here, a couple of noisome factors cause it to not quite reach recommended status.

We like the Zepto Nox A15. We're big fans of its matte black finish and curved edges, and even bigger fans of its performance and customisability. If you want something a little different to the Dells and Acers of this world, then you could do far worse.

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.


P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.7 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.


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.


78.2%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
