Reviews for the Novatech X16
The Novatech X16 may not be the most exciting entry-level notebook available on the market, but overall it is built well and has a reasonable specification for the price. It is subtle in design so will suit both home and workplace environments. Performance was what you would expect from a notebook with this specification - it copes with menial duties well but struggles a little with more demanding tasks and gaming. I'm surprised at how poor the X16's battery life is. In Silent Mode with the Power Saver plan enabled it didn't even manage three hours of usage. This detracts from its appeal in a corporate environment as most users are likely to require at least four hours of battery life.

CommentNVIDIA GeForce G 105M: Higher clocked 9300M GS and therefore a bit faster. Still manufactured in 65nm. Supports Hybrid-SLI with HybridPower and GeForceBoost (in conjunction with the right Nvidia chipset).
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.
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.
