Source: Techradar Archive.org version
The B17 is its entry-level media centre, but while its large screen suits basic home entertainment use, it lacks the power of similarly-priced laptops.

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.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
TK-42: Entry level dual-core processor with a relative slow performance.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.» 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.
Novatech: This British Computershop also sells laptops with its own brand. The marketshare is very low and there don't exist many laptop reviews for Novatech laptops.
60%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
