The affordable price, large screen and comprehensive warranty make the Belinea 3 worth considering for basic home and office use. Its low performance is disappointing, however, and better options are available.

ATI Radeon Xpress X1270: Built in RS690T chipset and is based on an X700 graphics core (with less pipelines). It features no dedicated graphics memory but Vista Aero support.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.

TL-60: First in 90nm, later in 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 1.8 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

17.10": This display size is a standard format for desktop replacements (DTR). The DTR laptops are heavier to carry, need more power, but texts are easy to read and high resolutions are no problem. DTR are mainly intended for stationary desk use, where weight and energy hunger don't matter. In return, you enjoy the advantages of high resolutions (more details, better legibility).» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

3.6 kg:

Only a few laptops are in this weight class because the mobility is rather limited due to the high weight. 

72.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
