Top 5 Laptops | September 2010
The Sony-VAIO VPCZ136GG/B (why can't they have sleeker, smaller names?) is here for contrast.
The price is near the 15 inch Macbook. The specs? Almost.
The screen is rich, a 1600x900 TFT colour display.In one sentence, this 13.1 inch laptop is, in places fast (i5) and loaded (HDMI, USB X 3).
What it should have added was more memory (128 GB), and you'll end up spending over a lakh for something that looks like a laptop, and not a marvel of hardware aesthetic.
Not worth it's price, and not worth top 3.
MRP Rs. 109,900 /-
Ah, Macky, we meet again._____
After owning last month's Top 5 Laptops, the 15" laptop is here. Not because it has the best specs, but for it's user experience. The Macbook is sleek and gorgeous, powerful and subtle.
For a reasonable, mid-range price price, you're getting good stuff. 500 GB, a 4GB RAM,e-SATA and HDMI.
Intensive gaming was never Sony forte, so don't expect fireworks, but the
14 inch Sony VAIO has a ATI Mobility Radeon™ GPU for most mid-level games.
It is also the most refreshingly vibrant piece of tech on this list.
Good onboard memory (500 GB), and a powerful processor (i5)
Asus Lamborghini VX6 - Optimus
The Asus VX6 doesn't deserve Lamborghini in it's middle name. It looks good; 080p HD video playback and build quality, but as Techtree diagnosed, the_____
"Sticky Touch-pad area, average video playback battery life, high price…" kill whatever hope you might have salvaged from seeing this overpriced notebook
(dual-core 1.8 GHz Intel Atom processor).
It's a netbook when it comes to gaming, a netbook when it comes to battery life (drains on intensive work). And it walks, games, and specs like a netbook...
I've always seen the Inspiron as a handy device.As Dan Ackerman at Cnet says : "…Inspiron laptops have always been the brand's middle-of-the-road workhorse: equally likely to turn up in a dorm room or coffee shop as at your mom's kitchen table…" The 15R is evolution on the Inspiron' look - no more plasticky bodies. The wrist-rest is ĺ brushed metal pattern, and the chassis tapers off to look thinner in the front, matte is the black keyboard, and so is the new touchpad. On specs, the 15.6-inch's standard 1,366x768-pixel resolution is sufficient for daily computing needs (the unofficial slogan of Inspiron).
There's HDMI, USB X 3, and eSATA port. As one satisfied customer puts it "High-end laptop, Looks expensive, Cheap price, Great!"
