Reviews for the Hi-Grade Notino D8000

70% Hi-Grade Notino D8000W review

A powerful 15" laptop that's ideal for home and office tasks. Hi-Grade is a UK-based manufacturer that uses generic components to offer good value for money. The Notino D8000W an upgraded version of the Notino D8000 we reviewed a while back, featuring a high-end Intel Core 2 Duo processor and dedicated graphics. Overall, Hi-Grade's Notino D8000W is a competent machine, only let down by its noisy keyboard and poor battery life. That said, it's unfortunately difficult to recommend this laptop over some of its excellent rivals.

  Hi-Grade's Notino D8000 is comfortable and well-specified, but fails to come together as a complete package. Hi-Grade is a UK manufacturer, making good value machines in a range of specications. The Notino D8000 uses a generic chassis and we've seen it featured on various Hi-Grade models over the past two years. The Notino D8000 isn't a bad laptop, but it lacks any stand-out features to recommend it outright. Performance is reasonable and it's a well-made machine, but more is expected at this price.

NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS: Compared to the 9300M G, the GS has only 8 unified shaders but a higher clock rate. Therefore, the performance should be similar according to Nvidia. Supports 
Hybrid-SLI (GeForceBoost and HybridPower) with Nvidia 9100M G and PureVideo HD (VP3).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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.


Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.
