Asus F555LA-NS72 Laptop Review

Asus F555LA-NS72 Laptop Review

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Asus Laptop Battery

Good news for you, Asus F555LA-NS72 is called a premium laptop with battery such as Asus C22-UX31 Battery, Asus C23-UX31 Battery, Asus UX31E-DH72 Battery, Asus UX31E-RY009V Battery, Asus UX31 Battery, Asus UX31A-R4004H Battery, Asus C21N1401 Battery, Asus C21PQCH Battery, Asus X455 Battery, Asus X455LA Battery, Asus X455LD Battery, Asus X455LA-WX082D Battery. But there’s one thing that is confusing: the low price point. Because, can you really get a premium notebook for so cheap? Is there a reason to go for this computer or just stay away from it? I’ll let you know my opinion on that below!

Processor and memory are good in Asus F555LA-NS72. The former is Intel Core i7-5500U (5th generation unit) with the vital stats being a dual-core configuration, 2.4GHz clock speed and 3.0GHz turbo boost. The CPU Mark score is a high(ish) 4000, so it’s a power user friendly processor. The 8GB memory is also a good amount these days, my guess is that 99% of people will be more than happy with it.

It’s not a bad, however not so good thing either, that the storage drive is a platter-based one. The 1TB 5400RPM HDD gives you a lot of space but lacks in performance – if you wanted to make this computer boot up (and in general, operate) faster, you’d need to take the HDD out and put a solid-state drive in. That’s not a maneuver everybody can do, but if you’re tech-savvy it’s very possible.

Asus F555LA-NS72 doesn’t have a fancy display, just a 15.6-inch screen featuring a maximum resolution of 1366×768. So no Full HD here, that’s a bummer for some. Also, it’s not a touchscreen. The display has a webcam embedded on top of it, it features VGA (640×480) resolution which is good for video chatting but not for filming high quality YouTube videos.

The ports include usual USB connectors (two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0) and one full-size HDMI-out for an external monitor. A 100Mbps LAN port is present for wired networking. There’s also a WiFi card, but I’ve received reports it’s not the advertised ac standard, just the regular bgn. Bluetooth 4.0 is supported.

DVD burner and media card reader (SD cards only!) are included.

The 2-cell battery is not a heavyweight power source, expect a maximum of four hours when surfing the web.

Gaming can be an issue with Asus F555LA-NS72, the integrated Intel HD 5500 graphics chip is not a beast. Playing some new and demanding games may work on low settings, for example GTA 5 at ~25FPS, however Fallout 4 would lag too much at 15-20FPS. Luckily, not all games require so much from the graphics chip, like Counter-Strike: Go which would run at +35FPS even when higher settings were used. Also bear in mind it’s not possible to install dedicated graphics.

Asus F555LA-NS72 could be worth your while if you’re a power user (or techie). There’s the low-voltage Core i7 processor and 8GB RAM speeding the system up, however the 5400RPM hard drive can be a bottleneck. In short, all kinds of software activities will work, especially if you upgrade to SSD. Too bad the display has no Full HD support – it could just be expected for this price. Gaming is a tough question; you can’t keep high settings due to integrated graphics. If this kind of good-looking and pretty fast laptop from a trusted brand interests you, and you are possibly ready to upgrade the HDD, I’d recommend checking the computer out.

Acer TravelMate 2702WLMi Review

Acer TravelMate 2702WLMi Review

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Acer Laptop Battery

With an aim to make this site both a useful resource for design and hardware enthusiasts alike I figured it’s about time I penned my first product review. Having just received my new Acer Travelmate 2702WLMi with battery like Acer AS16A5K Battery, Acer AC14B3K Battery, Acer AS16A8K Battery, Acer E5-575 Battery, Acer E5-774 Battery, Acer F5-573 Battery, Acer E5-475G Battery, Acer CB5-571 Battery, Acer ES1-311 Battery, Acer CB3-531 Battery, Acer ES1-131 Battery, Acer B115-MP Battery I decided to knock up a little review of it, concentrating on both the areas of performance and design. First off I’d like to say that for the very budget friendly price of 549 British pounds ($965 USD) I was not expecting a beastie machine on par with the likes of the Sony Vaio or Apple Powerbook, and was pleasantly surprised with what the laptop did deliver.

First up aesthetics. From the outset the TravelMate’s dimensions suggest that it is anything but a “Travel Mate” but more of a desktop replacement; measuring in at almost 2″ thick. The 15.4″ widescreen configuration is welcome as trying to work on any form of design using lower end 12″ displays is nigh on impossible and the fact that the TravelMate offers widescreen makes it ideal for watching films. Despite being bulky, the laptop’s exterior exudes the infamous Acer style; adopting their glossy silver finish which, from a distance, is indecipherable from aluminium (it is in fact just plastic). The curved edges and sleek lines give the case a suave feel which effectively conceals its budget price.

The 3.00GHz Pentium 4 Prescott CPU is the main downfall of the laptop. Although it provides a powerful processing base it is also the main cause of the laptop’s portability issues as Acer have had to design the chassis around the oversized heat sinks which are necessary to cool the beastly chip. On the bottom of the case Acer have placed two 40mm fans which were actually not bedded properly upon delivery (I’m currently awaiting a courier to take it back for correction) but the fans will still be irritatingly loud once amended. The Pentium 4’s massive power consumption levels also mean that the life of a fully charged battery is only predicted by Acer themselves to be an hour but, unless left idle, battery life actually only comes in at a measly 40 minutes, enhancing the machines suitability as a desktop replacement.

The notebook is also wireless ready, offering both traditional 802.11b WiFi reception and Bluetooth. Acer has considered both of these in the design of the case and has placed two large buttons on the front of the chassis which enable you to activate or deactivate the wireless reception.

Overall the TravelMate is a strong performer for a very competitive price. It has the capabilities and components often associated with higher end systems, but unfortunately lack the portability and quietness to match. The Acer “folio” design packs attractiveness into the machine in usual abundance and gives the impression of much higher value. Unfortunately it is let down by the concord like sound levels and abysmal battery life, but if you’re looking to replace your desktop with a semi-portable system the TravelMate has what it takes, and I’m looking forward to the biceps I’ll reap from lugging the machine around.

Acer Aspire One D250 Review

Acer Aspire One D250 Review

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Acer Laptop Battery

Acer managed to strike gold in the middle of a global economic crisis thanks to their affordable Acer Aspire One netbooks. These low-cost, ultraportable laptops have quickly become popular travel companions for people who don’t want to haul a heavy notebook to Starbucks. The latest 10-inch Acer Aspire One, the D250 series with battery like Acer AC14B18K Battery, Acer AC14B3K Battery, Acer AC14B8K Battery, Acer KT.0040G.004 Battery, Acer E5-771 Battery, Acer ES1-711 Battery, Acer V3-371 Battery, Acer P236-M Battery, Acer AC14B13J Battery, Acer AC14B18J Battery, Acer ES1-111 Battery, Acer B115-M Battery, offers a great balance of features at a starting price of less than $300. Read on to find out more about the Acer Aspire One D250-1165.

Our Acer Aspire One D250-1165 features the following specifications:
•Operating System: Genuine Windows XP
•Processor: Intel Atom N270 Processor 1.60GHz
•Memory: 1GB DDR2 SDRAM (533MHz)
•Internal Storage: 160GB 5400 rpm SATA HDD
•Display: 10.1-inch diagonal WSVGA+ (1024×600)
•Graphics: Intel GMA 950
•Wireless: 54g Wi-Fi (802.11b/g)
•Expansion: 5-in-1 media card slot
•Ports and connectors: (3) USB 2.0 ports, VGA OUT, power connector, RJ-45/Ethernet (10/100), stereo headphone/line out, stereo microphone in, 0.3 megapixel (VGA) webcam
•Dimensions (H x W x D): 1 x 10.2 x 7.2 inches (including feet)
•Weight: 2.4 lbs (not including weight of AC adapter).
•Power: 3-cell Lithium-Ion battery (2200mAh, 25Wh)

The Acer Aspire One D250-1165 is a low-cost version of the new D250 series netbooks and features a smaller battery and no Bluetooth in order to drop the retail price below $300. One very interesting item of note is that the D250 is actually slightly thinner than the original Acer Aspire One 150 series which used a smaller 8.9-inch screen. Like the original Aspire One, the D250 uses glossy plastics on the top of the screen cover as well as around the entire LCD. At times the reflective boarder does get on your nerves if you are in a brightly lit room with many sources of glare.

Acer claims that the Acer Aspire One D250-1165 provides “up to 3 hours of battery life” from the 3-cell battery. Even if the D250 indeed lasted that long it would be relatively pathetic compared to the ASUS Eee PC 1005HA with a 6-cell battery that lasts more than 9 hours.

In our test with the screen brightness set to 70%, wireless active, and XP set to the laptop/portable power profile the system stayed on for 2 hours and 32 minutes of constant use. If we turned down the screen brightness to the lowest setting and disabled Wi-Fi then I’m reasonably sure the D250 could have lasted more than 3 hours. It’s worth mentioning that the Aspire One D250 series is also available with a 6-cell battery, and that the 6-cell battery version should provide better battery life.

Although the Acer Aspire One D250-1165 offers a great value for less than $300, I can’t help but feel a little less than impressed. Acer used a small keyboard, small touchpad, and worst of all a small battery on what is otherwise a fantastic netbook.

Considering how crowded the netbook market has become over the last year I really expected Acer to deliver more with their 10-inch netbook. Yes, it costs less than $300, but that price looks less impressive when other netbooks have better keyboards, better touchpads, and MUCH better battery life for less than $400.

As I’ve said before with netbooks, I’d like to see a higher resolution screen and better graphics solution, but when it comes to the Aspire One D250 I’d settle for a better keyboard, touchpad, and battery. Still, if you’re looking for a low-cost laptop to take with you to the coffee shop then the Acer Aspire One D250-1165 might prove to be a very good choice.

Asus ZenBook UX51VZ-XB71 Review

Asus ZenBook UX51VZ-XB71 Review

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Acer Laptop Battery

The Asus ZenBook offers a sleek and durable design with strong performance and incredible display, but all those features come at a steep cost.

Asus refreshes its 15.6-inch ZenBook with the introduction of the ZenBook UX51VZ-XB71. The new notebook with battery like Acer AL13B3K Battery, Acer AP13B8K Battery, Acer KT.00403.018 Battery, Acer M5-583 Battery, Acer R7-571 Battery, Acer V5-573 Battery, Acer AC14A8L Battery, Acer V7-581 Battery, Acer VN7-791 Battery, Acer AC15B7L Battery, Acer KT.0030G.001 Battery, Acer VN7-571 Battery doesn’t mark much of a departure from last year’s UX51VZ-DH71, utilizing the same build design as it predecessor with a few minor technical upgrades. Instead the big change comes from the device’s upgraded 2880 x 1620 resolution Retina-like display.

However, the Apple MacBook Pro alternative offers much more than just an eye-catching display; with an Intel Core i7 processor, NVidia dedicated graphics and dual SSDs the Asus ZenBook provides strong performance in its portable form factor. With one of the highest resolution displays on the market and excellent performance the ZenBook may be the company’s most attractive high-end notebook to date, but does that justify the ZenBook’s hefty price point? Read the full review to find out.

Little has changed in terms of design for the Asus ZenBook UX51VZ. The device offers the same great look and feel as last year’s model, while retaining the same levels of utility and durability in an even thinner form factor. Offering excellent speaker quality, a comfortable keyboard and ample connectivity, the Asus ZenBook UX51VZ delivers on almost all fronts. For more on the device’s build and design be sure to see our previous review of the Asus ZenBook UX51VZ-DH71.

With its stylish and durable build, strong performance and high-resolution display the Asus ZenBook provides the perfect alternative to users looking for high-end display oriented device on Microsoft’s platform.

However, for the average user the Asus ZenBook is likely a bit too expensive for what it brings to the table. While the 2880 x 1620 resolution is absolute luxury, most users will find the standard 1920 x 1080 display in the Asus ZenBook UX51VZ-DH71 to be more than suitable and with comparable performance at nearly $1,000 than the 2013 model the DH71 is far friendlier on the wallet as well.

While the Asus ZenBook arguably offers the best substitute to the Apple MacBook Pro, the Pro’s Retina display still manages to come out on top. While the two displays are comparable and the ZenBook offers a brighter display, the MacBook Pro ultimately offers a more detailed image with greater color contrast. Additionally, most of Apple’s applications are “Retina-aware” meaning that the UI elements are enlarged while the actual content gets displayed at 1:1 ratio. Windows users can achieve much of the same functionality by tinkering with the options, but the Windows 8 tile screen is not optimized for a large resolution display such as this.

The Asus ZenBook proves to be a great solution for users who need a high-resolution display on Microsoft’s operating system, but for everyone else there are likely more affordable notebook options that will meet your needs.

Acer Predator 15 Super Gaming Laptop

Acer Predator 15 Super Gaming Laptop

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Acer Laptop Battery

Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-70XR) with battery like Acer AL15A32 Battery, Acer KT.00403.025 Battery, Acer E5-422 Battery, Acer E5-772 Battery, Acer F5-572 Battery, Acer V3-575 Battery, Acer Extensa 2510 Battery, Acer Extensa 2511 Battery, Acer Extensa 2520 Battery, Acer P258-M Battery, Acer P257-M Battery, Acer TravelMate P277-M Battery should be everything a gamer wants: a quality display, high-end processor, solid-state drive and best of all, a powerful dedicated graphics engine. It’s a very sweet rig for a player, but there’s one downside to this: the computer cost is huge. Let me tell you if this Acer is actually worth it…

Hell yeah, this Acer was made for gaming. It has GeForce GTX980M, a player-oriented graphics card with 4GB dedicated GGDR5 memory. Everything will be smooth with it; for example GTA 5 you can play with ultra details and 1080p and get over 40 frames per second. The Witcher 3 isn’t much worse, with similar settings you’ll get 30-40 FPS.

It’s not hard to guess, this computer rocks for any kind of use. There’s a processor called Intel Core i7-6700HQ inside; it runs on a 2.6GHz clock speed and has a 3.5GHz turbo feature too. Core amount is four. It does an excellent job in benchmarks, getting around 8000 points in CPU Mark. Not many other processors can reach anywhere close that.

Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-70XR) features 16GB memory, the DDR4 type. I think it comes on two 8GB modules, leaving other two slots on the system free. Maximum memory is anyway a whopping 64GB, but not even a heavyweight gamer would need that much.

A 256GB solid-state drive (M.2, SATA 3) is what you’re getting for storage here. On top of that, there’s 1TB 7200RPM hard drive included. It’s a great combination, giving you both performance and raw storage. Both drives can of course be replaced in case you want to.

Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-70XR) seems to include four USB 3.0 ports, but in addition there’s also the modern USB 3.1 Type C connector that supports, among other things, Thunderbolt 3. Other video outputs are a full-size HDMI and DisplayPort.

The disc drive is a nice one here, a Blu-Ray burner. Of course it also works with CDs and DVDs. In case you need it, SD card slot is available as well.

Fast networking interfaces are included: a 1000Mbps RJ-45 connector for cables and dual-band 2×2 802.11ac WiFi card for wireless networking and Bluetooth 4.1.

Webcam resolution is 1280×720, it’s suitable for video chatting using Skype.

People have been saying good things about the display of Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-70XR), and no wonder why: the 15.6″ screen sports Full HD support and IPS panel, giving closer to 180 degree viewing angles and realistic color reproduction. The display is not touch sensitive, but that’s not often a high priority for gamers.

Running time is never great in these heavyweight gaming laptops, the 8-cell battery won’t likely give more than 1.5-2 hours gameplay time. However, surfing the web and other lighter activities are good for 4 hours with a single charge.

Operating system is pre-loaded here, it’s the Windows 10 Home (64-bit).

The keyboard has a red backlight, although you should be able to change the color with included application.

Indeed Acer Predator 15 (G9-591-70XR) is everything a player can ask for, all games are highly playable and lag should not occur even on maximum settings and Full HD resolution. Naturally, running all software and programs will be a smooth sail too. But it all costs, a lot, and some more. That’s why I can only recommend this Acer for the most avid gamers who won’t settle for anything but the best. If that is you, then going for this laptop would make perfect sense.

Samsung N120 Laptop

Samsung N120 Laptop

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Samsung Laptop Battery

The Samsung N120 is the company’s latest entry into the 10-inch netbook market. The N120 with battery such as Samsung AA-PBYN4AB Battery, Samsung AA-PLWN4AB Battery, Samsung BA43-00336A Battery, Samsung 530U3B Battery, Samsung 532U3X Battery, Samsung 540U3C Battery, Samsung NP530U3C Battery, Samsung NP532U3C Battery, Samsung NP535U3C Battery, Samsung NT530U3C Battery, Samsung NT535U3C Battery, Samsung 535U3X Battery has typical netbook specifications but sets itself apart with an eye-catching design, light weight, and long battery life. Read on for our take.

Our Samsung N120 review unit has the following specifications:
• Intel Atom N270 processor (1.60GHz)
• Windows XP Home Edition
• Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics
• 10.1-inch widescreen display (1024×600) with LED backlighting
• 160GB 5400RPM hard drive (Samsung HM160HI)
• 6-cell Li-ion battery (11.1V, 57Wh (5200mAh)
• Atheros AR5007EG 802.11g wireless
• One-year limited warranty
• White color (also available in black)

We ran a full suite of benchmarks on the N120 and before I give you the numbers, let us talk about what really matters – the usability factor. The best way to describe using a small netbook like the N120 is confining. The ten inch screen is small and takes getting used to – even though I have spent a lot of time with 12 inch notebooks, ten inches is in another league entirely. The 1024×600 screen resolution does not help the situation; the minimum on notebooks these days is 1366×768, which has over 70% more pixels than this display. As I noted earlier, a lot of scrolling will be necessary with this screen, and using two windows side-by-side will be near impossible. I moved the Windows taskbar to the side of the screen to regain some vertical space, but the fact is only so much can be done with 600 pixels. That said, surfing the Internet in full screen mode (press [F11] in Firefox/Internet Explorer) helps alleviate the lack of space.

At 3/8 brightness using the “Normal” power management profile, I managed an amazing eight hours and twenty minutes of battery life while surfing the Internet and word processing. By lowering the brightness further and using a more aggressive power saving profile, more is possible. Keep in mind that the N120 uses a traditional hard disk and not a Solid State Drive (SSD); with an SSD the N120 could go even longer. The system tray battery icon consistently estimated over nine hours of battery life remaining with a 90% charge.

Although the N120 does not match the battery life of the ASUS Eee PC 1000HE, it is almost one half-pound lighter which is significant.

The Samsung N120 should be high on the list for anyone in the 10-inch netbook market. At less than three pounds and with over eight hours of battery life, the N120 makes for a superb traveling companion. A stylish design, great screen, keyboard, and touchpad sweeten the deal.

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Laptop

Samsung ATIV Book 9 Laptop

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Samsung Laptop Battery

The Samsung ATIV Book 9, formerly known to many as the Samsung Series 9 NP900X3E with battery such as Samsung AA-PB9N4BL Battery, Samsung NP-RV410-CD1BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV411-CD1BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV411-CD5BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV415-BD2BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV415-BD5BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV415-CD2BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV415-CD3BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV419-CD1BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV420-AD4BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV420-CD2BR Battery, Samsung NP-RV415-CD1BR Battery, is the epitome of what it means to be an ultrabook. Sexy, sleek and impossibly thin, the notebook feels like its offering a glimpse of the future; but living in tomorrow is not a cheap endeavor.

Users looking to own one of the world’s thinnest 13.3″ notebooks can expect to pay at least $1,900 (price at time the review was written). For that steep price point, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 offers solid performance. The device employs excellent build quality, a responsive Intel i7 processor, and quick data retrieval via the 256GB solid state drive (SSD); but at nearly $2,000 it’s easy to find the lack of a touch-enabled display, 4GB of RAM, and integrated graphics wanting.

However, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 isn’t about raw power, instead it’s about offering impressive performance in as compact a form factor as possible; and in that regard the Samsung Series 9 is nothing short of impressive.

The Samsung Series ATIV Book 9 is impressive; but with so many alternative portable computing means (i.e. smartphones and tablets); do consumers really need incredibly thin notebooks anymore? Read the full review to find out.

Equipped with and 1.9 GHz Intel i7-3517U processor and integrated graphics the Samsung ATIV Book 9 offers an impressive amount of performance in its condensed package. The machine proves more than up to the task when it comes to basic word and web functions. The notebook is also able to tackle more strenuous office functions such as complicated Excel tables with relative ease.

It’s hard to find many faults with the Samsung ATIV Book 9, as the ultrabook manages to do most things fairly well. The most serious issue that can be raised against the device is its cost. While many of the features of this device are fantastic, many consumers may expect more for its $2,000 price point.

However, the Samsung ATIV Book 9 isn’t for those consumers. This notebook isn’t designed to offer you considerable bang for your buck. Sure the 1.9 GHz processor and 256 GB SSD allow this machine to perform most functions admirably, but the notebook falls short of many comparably priced devices on the market.

Instead the Samsung ATIV Book 9 focuses on one very specific function. To offer as much performance in as small a form factor as possible. With its durable and incredibly thin design and long lasting the battery the Samsung ATIV Book 9 is ideal for travel. Users who don’t mind spending a bit extra will find this luxury travel device an absolute pleasure to use.

Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) Review

Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) Review

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist
of the Lenovo Laptop Battery

Take a look at Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) with battery like Lenovo 01AV428 Battery, Lenovo SB10K97597 Battery, Lenovo Thinkpad T570 Battery, Lenovo Thinkpad P51S Battery, Lenovo 0C52861 Battery, Lenovo 0C52862 Battery, Lenovo 45N1160 Battery, Lenovo 45N1777 Battery, Lenovo 45N1761 Battery, Lenovo 45N1130 Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad X270 Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad W550S Battery, what can you see? An elite notebook with high-performance components and sleek design? That’s what it seems to be. There are i7 processor and real SSD speeding the system up, and the unit definitely looks professional. But it’s also very pricey, and in my opinion not everybody should spend this much on a laptop. On the other hand, some people would benefit from having such a powerhouse at their disposal. Who those people are, and what this notebook could do for them, will be discussed in the review below.

It’s a solid set of components you find in the engine room of Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US). The processor is familiar Intel Core i7-5500U which gives you two cores to play with and 2.4GHz clock speed – that will be increased to 3.0GHz with the turbo boost. It’s indeed i7, the processor series considered the best of Intel, however this model features ultra low voltage design – hence the U suffix. You shouldn’t need to worry about excess heat here, but on the other hand performance isn’t on par with “real” i7s. For example, the regular voltage i7-4720HQ gets over 8000 CPU Mark points while this i7-5500U receives around 4000. A huge difference indeed, but I’d say any processor with over 3000 grade is excellent for everyday computing. When it’s 4000 or more, a power user with demanding/simultaneous applications will also enjoy the notebook.

The laptop has 8GB memory available, a proper amount for professionals indeed. I’m not actually sure if you’re able to put in more, there are no information about the possibility for RAM upgrade on Lenovo website. The 256GB solid-state drive means excellent system performance, and you won’t have to deal with hard drive upgrades here.

Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) is quite expensive, but it’s no gamer’s dream. See, the computer doesn’t have any kind of dedicated graphics card – only the basic Intel HD 5500 that comes integrated on the processor. However, it doesn’t outright suck, you’re able to get playable frame rates if you reduce eye candy. To give you an example, the popular Grand Theft Auto 5 would get ca. 25 FPS played on medium settings and 1366×768 resolution. League of Legends, on the other hand, is likely to give +40FPS with Full HD and default settings on.

Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) features a small anti-glare 13.3″ display, but its specifications look rather interesting. For example, it features 2560×1440 maximum resolution, a so-called Quad HD. It’s certainly a professional’s choice but it’s uncertain if you actually need that much in a 13-inches display, the icons and text will surely look small. Of course the resolution can always be changed to, say, Full HD or less. And somebody working with photos or videos would appreciate the high resolution anyway. Touch isn’t supported, you’ll have to deal with operating system (pre-installed Windows 8.1) using keyboard and mouse.

Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) features all the common ports a 13.3 inches notebook often has. There are two USB 3.0s at your disposal, also HDMI-out is there so you can plug in an external display. As you might guess, there’s no DVD drive (no space for that), but feel free to get an external drive for discs.

This thing connects to Internet via 802.11 A/C standard WiFi card. Bluetooth 4.0 works too. RJ-45 port isn’t available, but with USB adapter you can get that as well.

Other things you might put to good use are SD card slot and 720p front-facing webcam.

Portability is the best thing in Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US). It weighs a mere 1.9 pounds, compare that to 5 pounds weight of a regular 15.6″ laptop. Also thickness is 0.67 inches, much less these units often are. Finding place in your purses/backpacks will be easy and you won’t get exhausted carrying this Lenovo around.

The battery specifications were not available, but benchmarks show it is good for 7 hours web browsing. It’s not the best of ultrabooks, but lasting almost a full day is still quite an achievement.

The keyboard seems to be “Japanese” style, in that some keys are in different places than you’re probably used to. For example, Delete and Insert keys are on the front row, next to the space bar. Also keep in mind the keyboard doesn’t have backlight.

Lenovo Lavie Z (20FG0013US) offers plenty of power for guys with heavyweight applications – that would include power users, office workers with special programs and digital artists. But gamers I don’t include on that list, because despite all these powerful components, one essential thing is missing: a dedicated graphics card. With the current integrated chip, gamers are not going to find much use for this notebook. Others however are, but the computer would offer much better value with a dedicated graphics. Anyway, if you don’t care about gaming and have the money, by all means go for it. This Lenovo won’t slow down, no matter what (non-gaming) applications you throw at it!

Lenovo G70-80 80FF00LCUS Laptop

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist

Ah, a cheap laptop, a welcome sight! Who wouldn’t like to pay only a little for notebook when the time has come to get one. Lenovo G70-80 80FF00LCUS is this kind of a budget computer, sporting an affordable price tag, but does it also mean it’s too slow for your use…?

Lenovo G70-80 80FF00LCUS contains a pretty good processor with battery like Lenovo 51J0226 Battery, Lenovo 57Y6266 Battery, Lenovo X1 Carbon 3448 Battery, Lenovo 45N1070 Battery, Lenovo FRU 42T4585 Battery, Lenovo X1 Carbon 3444 Battery, Lenovo X1 Carbon 3460 Battery, Lenovo L08L6Y02 Battery, Lenovo 3000 G555 Battery, Lenovo IdeaPad B460 Battery, Lenovo 45N1071 Battery, Lenovo X1 Carbon 3462 Battery for the price, the Intel Core i3-5020U of two cores and 2.2GHz clock speed. The more interesting statistics might be CPU Mark score which is 3200. This translates to suitability for all the stuff a home user might do, including web browsers, MS Office programs and video streaming. The 4GB memory suffices for that kind of use as well – just keep in mind you can upgrade to 16GB with two 8GB sticks.

As expected, storage drive isn’t very special, just a regular 1TB spinning disk drive. It’s enough for day-to-day use, but some techies might want to upgrade that to a solid-state drive with better performance. Just keep in mind there are no extra bays inside, so you need to take out the current drive first.

The selection of ports is similar to other cheap laptops. Lenovo G70-80 80FF00LCUS has 1 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 for common devices such as printers, scanners or extra drives. There are also HDMI and VGA outputs at your disposal, it’s possible to connect another monitor to those.

Networking interfaces are decent, you’ll get Gigabit RJ-45 connector for cable and AC WiFi & Bluetooth 4.0 card for wireless.

The laptop includes a DVD burner and SD/MMC card reader for easy transferring of files to and from the system.

This notebook is only good for older games or those who don’t demand a lot from the system. There is no dedicated graphics included, no Radeon R5, just the integrated Intel HD 5500. It can run many games on low settings if you can do with less than perfect FPS: for example, GTA 5 played on low and 720p resolution will give ca. 25 frames per second. League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Go on the other hand will run smoother with more settings on.

So remember, Lenovo G70-80 80FF00LCUS is a big model, it contains a 17.3 inches display. Resolution isn’t that good, just the basic 1600×900. The screen is not touch sensitive. The webcam on top supports 0.3MP for video, enough for occasional video chatting.

You can expect the 4-cell 41Wh battery to last for the usual four hours (web surfing) before you need to recharge it.

There’s no backlit keyboard on this model.

Operating system is Windows 10 Home, the 64-bit version.

Lenovo G70-80 80FF00LCUS is, first and foremost, a home or office laptop. You can throw basic programs at it and there will be no issues, the Core i3 processor will handle all web browsers and office applications nice. Gaming is however another thing, you won’t get top FPS because of the poor graphics engine. So, if you’re after a large (17.3 inches!) budget laptop and you’re not very demanding, this Lenovo should be a good pick.

Lenovo 80QQ00JGUS Laptop Review

Welcome to a Biomedical Battery specialist

Let me tell you briefly about Lenovo 80QQ00JGUS, a new laptop with an attractive price tag and entry-level performance. This kind of a notebook has its uses, but there are also some disadvantages you should know about… So without further ado, my professional opinion below!

Lenovo 80QQ00JGUS with battery like Lenovo 0A36305 Battery, Lenovo 45N1018 Battery, Lenovo 45N1019 Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad X220 Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad X220i Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad X230i Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad X230s Battery, Lenovo 01AV422 Battery, Lenovo 01AV425 Battery, Lenovo ThinkPad T560 Battery, Lenovo 01AV427 Battery runs on the Intel Core i5-5200U processor, a 5th generation model offering two cores, 2.2GHz clock speed and 2.7GHz turbo. You will find it quite faster than older i3s, this one getting ~3500 points in CPU Mark. Using those everyday programs is a breeze, you can even try to throw in advanced, specialized apps now and then. To be honest, also the memory is sufficient for that – there is 4GB installed and 8GB is maximum (1 slot on the mainboard).

There’s a DVD burner, you can install programs from discs if that’s still your thing. Likewise, SD/MMC card slot is included, good for uploading photographs from cameras.

It’s not a wonderful hard drive on Lenovo 80QQ00JGUS, just an unexciting 1TB model with 5400RPM spindle speed. Big it is for sure, but if you wanted the best performance, SSD would be the thing. If you’re technically inclined, you can of course remove the hard drive and put a solid-state drive in place!

Battery life is going to be 4 hours, just the average of these low-end models (4-cell 32Wh battery).

There’s nothing fancy about the display, it’s a 15.6″ screen offering 1366×768 resolution. It is not a touch-supported unit. There is a basic 0.3MP webcam embedded in the top bezel.

Ports are not many, just one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0 and one HDMI (the last can be used for connecting a PC monitor). For networking a 100Mbps RJ-45 port and WiFi card (802.11n standard + Bluetooth 4.0) are offered.

Lenovo 80QQ00JGUS is not much of a gaming computer. It includes a graphics engine which is integrated on the processor, the chip is called Intel HD 5500. With many games you will need to use just little eye candy and FPS won’t still be top-notch. You could expect ca. 25FPS on GTA 5 played on normal settings and resolution 720p. League of Legends is an example that would run better, even if higher settings were used.

No backlit keyboard, but could you really expect one for this price?

Lenovo 80QQ00JGUS is one of those laptops a home user would appreciate, but power user not. It can run a web browser, even YouTube videos without problems, but the general feel is not going to blazing fast. Gaming won’t work unless you’re happy with low settings and resolution. But it’s hard to complain for such a low price; if it’s a basic notebook you’re looking for I think this Lenovo should suffice for you!
