Reviews for the Zoostorm Versa 83-6701

60% Zoostorm Versa 83-6701 review
Source: Techradar English version
An impressive specification on paper, but it fails to deliver in the real world. PC Nextday is a UK manufacturer known for its well-specified yet affordable laptops. The Zoostorm Versa 83-6701 has an impressive specification but fails to deliver in performance. While the Zoostorm Versa 83-6701 looks great on paper, it unfortunately fails to deliver in too many areas. It succeeds as an affordable, entry-level media centre, but its low performance and limited extras mean there are many better options on the market.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1600: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600.

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.


The T9300 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and similar to the T9400 but with a lower FSB.

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.

3.5 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.

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.
