Large screen on a budget
Calling the Dell Inspiron 17R a desktop replacement is a little unfair, since it's not really in the league of the performance desktops that dominate the category. The Inspiron 17R is a solid machine if you're looking for a large screen on a budget, but you have to be aware that it won't perform like similarly sized machines, such as the Origin EON17-S, or the Alienware M17x.
Does what I need it to
I bought this pc mainly because I ditched cable recently and needed a pc with a powerful processor to be able to convert and transmit streaming video to my roku box. The older model compaq that I had simply wasn't getting the job done but this beast does it without a hitch. The 17" screen is beautiful and the colors look great. It's really light and built sturdy and thus far i've had no issues with it.
Very keen price, Good screen for multimedia
The Dell Inspiron 17R isn't the notebook to go for if you need a true road warrior machine. It's too large and heavy, with merely mediocre battery life. But if you're after a system for general usage that is particularly good for group audiovisual presentations, even away from the mains socket, this is a serious contender.
Overall, this laptop has exceeded my expectations; the 6GB memory is exceptional, the i3 is fast enough for graphic work and programs were easy to install, media player runs beautifully, 750GB HD gives room to maneuver, and the screen is awesome! I am more than pleased with this purchase.
Quite Good for an Entry Level Computer
I personally like the computer a lot for its speed and performance. I find it as an inexpensive option for people looking for a computer for basic tasks like word processing, surfing the web, videochatting, etc.
Windows 8 is not as bad once you get used to it. You don't get the red X to close the programs; now, you drag the top of the window to the lower left corner and the program will close. I got used to it after 2-3 hours of using it + watching a tutorial on YouTube.
Good interfaces, Quiet
Lenovo offers an entry-level computer for a low price with the IdeaPad G580-MBBG3GE. Those who are looking for a laptop for typing and that handles all types of Internet communication and can play most video formats will be on the safe side with the IdeaPad G580-MBBG3GE. An alert consumer will have noticed that this conclusion is very similar to the one about the Lenovo G585.
Well worth it!
I purchased this laptop from BestBuy for 250$ on Black Friday. I did my research before i bought a new PC, I've upgraded 1 laptops and built 2 desktops. My old laptop is just outdated. Not saying i know everything about PC's but i know enough to get in trouble. This is a laptop people. One that is meant for web surfing and mobility. Its less then 400$ brand new and that's not even a bad price. Factory with 4G RAM and a 2.4GHz proc. not bad for a cheap laptop.
Sluggish performance and loaded with bloatware.
HP has positioned its AMD-powered Envy Sleekbook 6-1010us as a lower-priced alternative to Intel-certified ultrabooks. Unfortunately, the axiom that "you get what you pay for" applies here. It's underpowered, has a mediocre screen, and may feel slow even when brand new.
Very Thin And Light For Budget Laptop
For anyone that is looking to get a thin and lightweight 15-inch laptop, it is going to be hard to find a better overall choice that the HP Envy Sleekbook 6 with its $600 price tag. The downside is that the lower price point also comes with a slower performing AMD platform. it will work for basic tasks but even the first generation Intel ultrabooks will often do better.
Superb battery life, Nicely designed
HP proves that AMD can play in the sleek ultraportable game just as well as Intel. Performance might not be quite on the same level, but the HP Envy 6-1006ea Sleekbook makes up for this with a cheaper price and longer battery life. Overall, itâ??s an attractive, well-built and very affordable machine, and definitely recommended if youâ??re after a light and stylish 15-inch laptop.
Affordable, USB 3.0, looks good considering the price
The HP Envy 6 may look good, but it can't quite surpass its functional position; there's little icing on this cake. But then there's nothing wrong with that: for the £500-600 that the Envy 6 costs it delivers a reasonable spread, including USB 3.0, a bright screen and a comfortable keyboard. It lacks the higher-end features of a pricier model, and its upward of 2kg weight won't make it the most portable machine. It's good enough for the cash though.
Good design and build quality
HP's attempt to tackle the Ultrabook for half the price is admirable, but its budget cuts are evident in several key areas: the screen mixes mediocre quality with a low resolution, good design and build quality is matched with iffy ergonomics, and the AMD APU combines poor application performance with good graphical grunt. If Ultrabooks are too expensive, this £457 exc VAT Envy 6 is a good alternative - just don't expect too much.
This HP laptop in Winter Blue, presents as a very expensive model. It is an impressive, attractive, affordable laptop for entertainment. Having spent $1200 on my previous laptop, which crashed the weekend before Black Friday, I decided to look for value. I was able to pick up this one for under $300. WOW I can buy 4 new computers for the price of my now dinosaur. With an 8GB memory stack this HP will surpass the features of my previous expensive laptop.
Very Affordable, USB 3.0 Port, Keyboard With Numeric Keypad
For consumers looking at a very low cost laptop for basic computing needs, the Toshiba Satellite C855 is surprisingly affordable at a good deal less than $400. It may not have as high of performance or as much storage as some of the competition, but it makes up for this by having some good battery life along with a USB 3.0 port for better high speed external storage expansion.
Mediocre keyboard, Drab looks
The Toshiba Satellite C855 is a solid-but-uninspiring laptop. Its design is inoffensive but unlikely to excite and build quality is a little patchy. What turns us off the most, though, is the mediocre keyboard. The C855 has enough power for most casual tasks, but it's not the best if you're going to be doing a lot of typing.
Above Average Hard Drive Capacity, Better Integrated Graphics
HP's Pavilion g6-1d80nr differs from most because it uses an AMD Fusion processor. While it doesn't have as high of performance as Intel based laptops at this price point, it does offer better graphics performance which may be useful for some buyers. It also features more storage space than others at this price point but it does lack the USB 3.0 ports found on many new laptops used for high speed external storage.
Good mix of performance as well as value-for-money
The HP Pavillion g6 is a solid product, which has a good mix of performance as well as value-for-money. Most users would opt for a 14-inch or 15-inch notebook for around Rs. 35,000 but spending that little more in the case of the HP Pavilion g6 means you get a more solid graphics performance. Of course, if you're only looking for regular browsing and the occasional HD movie playback, you could do without it.
Compact power adapter
Aesthetically, the U400 is one of the best-looking notebooks we've seen at this price tier with good CPU performance. But its overall performance is in every sense of the word average. The notebook certainly doesn't perform poorly when compared to other similarly built Core i5-based notebooks, but with a few exceptions, it's neither impressive nor terrible. The U400's battery life, weight, size and display are all overwhelmingly unremarkable.
Good overall performance
At $884 the Lenovo IdeaPad U400 is a good value for a well-built mainstream notebook that offers excellent overall performance. If the middling graphics performance were the only drawback, it would be easy to recommend this notebook. The issues with the keyboard and touchpad are a big distraction, especially for such important components.
The Lenovo IdeaPad U400 brings the new U series stylish look and aluminum unibody design to a more mainstream size. But it's still one of the thinner and lighter 14" laptops on the market, and the U400 plus its smaller and light charger are easy to take anywhere. The notebook packs a full size notebook punch into one of the most attractive notebooks on the market and you get a good selection of basic ports plus an optical drive.
Awesome power of the Intel Core i5 chipset
For those of you with a specific use-case in mind, be sure to comment below and I'll let you know if I think this computer is the one for you or not. For me, itÃ¢Â? Â? s simply not the perfect combination of thin, light, and powerful. While it does have the awesome power of the Intel Core i5 chipset, itÃ¢Â? Â? s not going to beat an Alienware notebook at home for gaming for a rather comparable price. For heading out of the house to publish some stories or work with video, I canÃ¢Â? Â?
