Reviews for the Zoostorm Versa 81-2200

60% PC Nextday Zoostorm Versa 81-2200 review
Source: Techradar English

Does PC Nextday's laptop for the first-time buyer prove to be worthwhile? PC Nextday is a UK-based manufacturer and its Zoostorm range is its primary laptop brand. The Zoostorm Versa 81- 2200 (£349 inc. VAT) is one of its most affordable machines and, while it fails to match its rivals in terms of quality, it is still a good laptop for first-time buyers. While the Zoostorm Versa 81-2200 is not a bad laptop, it struggles to stand out against other laptops. It has plenty to offer to first-time buyers, but with no distinctive or defining points, it is quite a tough-sell.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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.


T4200:

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.

15.4":

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

2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


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