Reviews for the Mesh Ultima i5-B
Source: IT Reviews Archive.org version
A superbly capable gaming laptop that's difficult to fault. Given the components on offer, with a fast processor (plus Turbo mode), quality graphics, 6GB of memory and a swift 1TB hard disk, the Ultima i5-B represents excellent bang for your buck. It performed admirably across all gaming benchmarks and was predictably quick under Windows. The laptop is heavy on the juice, but such is the nature of the beast. And the display is perhaps a smidge more reflective than we'd ideally like, but in the face of all the good stuff, that really is small potatoes. Nay, miniature potatoes. In fact, make that crisps.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870:
High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on a desktop HD5770. Models with GDDR5 are ideal but there may be a bottleneck due to the 128 Bit memory bus.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
Mesh: Mesh Computers is a British computer shop, founded 1987, which sells its own laptop brand.
100%: This model is obviously considered exceptional by the testers. There are almost no laptops that are rated this well. If the reviews or the sources that give these ratings are to be taken seriously, then it is a very clear buy recommendation. Unfortunately, sometimes top scores are also squandered.
