Test of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Samstag, 29. Dezember 2012

Galaxy Note 10.1 should not be considered in the same way an iPad or a Galaxy Tab. The product is much less public interest, however, in some specific applications. With his pen and Wacom technology behind it, people who want to use a tablet for use creation tools requiring more accurate than our big fingers will be pleased to find in this tablet an interesting alternative.

More DetailsUn day, the Wikipedia page dedicated to announce tablets in its preamble that this type of device has been designed by Microsoft, and marketed by Apple popularized by Samsung.

Ipad’s business strategy is always the same: to flood the market with numerous products and see what sells best. In this game there is the Galaxy Note, this product as a small child in a court recreates a hard time choosing his “band” between Smartphones Tablets, which has most surprised. So we had a side smartphones with screens about 4 inches and the other 7-inch tablets or 10 inches, Samsung has decided to offer a product attached. But make phablet (smartphone and tablet at a time) in a screen of 5.3 inches needed to adapt a bit the way they used this type of product: beyond the grave and reappeared the stylus so dear to the 1990s.

After the surprising success, Samsung has decided to invest a little more niche tablet + pen this year. There is of course the Galaxy Note 2 but also a new member in the family: the Galaxy Note 10.1. This 10-inch tablet takes the best Galaxy Note adapting to really use tablet. Remains to be seen what gives this product compared to other tablets. Is the pen is as relevant as 10 inches by 5 inches? What does the pen in daily use? There’s there a real difference in use? Highly critical as many questions as we will try to elucidate through this test.

I-shape, sides and small defects

Contents of the box:

In the box accompanying the precious tablet, there is a USB cable to connect the Galaxy Tab to a PC or a Mac and an AC adapter. Samsung also delivers in-ear headphones with mic and button, something that others do not find useful. Apart from that, you will also get small booklets including one explaining the interface and use the stylus.

Technical and Design:

PLS 10-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels

processor quad-core Exynos 4412 clocked at 1.4 GHz with 2 GB of memory (RAM)

1.9 megapixel front camera and a 5-megapixel camera with 1080p video recording on the back

GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi (a / b / g / n) – a 3G version is

7000 mAh battery

16 GB of storage (a 32GB version is also available)

Android Ice Cream Sandwich, with an update planned soon to Jelly Bean

262 x 180 x 8.9 mm 600g

Regarding features, 2 GB of RAM is a surprise, but do not expect amazing performance because it is mostly additions Samsung made on the system that require to be a memory too large for the system is fluid. Matter, for you it will be totally transparent and you will not notice the difference compared to another tablet.

Level measurements, the Galaxy Note is wider than the iPad but less high, the fault to a different format (4:3 for the iPad, the Galaxy Note to 16:9). Above all, it is thinner and lighter.

The battery for Dell Inspiron 1440 is as big as the New iPad but it will be interesting to see if the consumption is the same as knowing the couple hardware + software is to the advantage of the iPad that Apple mastering each element in the Unlike Samsung Android that adapting that can not always for consumption elsewhere.

At the design of the product itself, Samsung has inspired what he had done for the Galaxy Tab. Failure to copy the competition, or even copy avoids trial. We find two speakers on each side of the screen. Or where it may seem like a detail, you will quickly realize that this is not one.

Indeed, the iPad, the speaker is unique and located on the back of the unit. Except that when you look at something, you look weird with the screen in front of you. Rather than having to choose between the screen and sound bad or very good sound and no picture, Samsung chose to have both at the same time and on the same side. In addition, nothing to spoil, Samsung has opted for speakers of good quality – nothing to do with what we have had with the Archos Gen 10 101 XS for example.

Let’s talk about color: as the Samsung Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 10.1 is available in two versions: white or dark gray. It is this last version we tested and the colors that appear in picture are not exactly those that emerge when looking at the product.

Before moving on to detail slice by slice, make a small turn by the general impression: I must say that it is rather yuck wow. Unlike the iPad, which uses the finest materials and expensive (metal), Samsung chose the cheap and affordable (what plastic). It shows a product that does not really want to be taken over and attracts very visible fingerprints. I think that zooming in on the photo below, you can easily add my fingerprints to the police file. It’s not super great and if you are or want to become a terrorist, go your way because this dell latitude e6500 is too risky.

The other consequence is a feeling of not strength. Try twisting an iPad with both hands, you will especially twisting your wrist. With the Galaxy Tab 10.1, we recommend you to try because it is not you who will take but the tablet. Note the advantage of the hospital is that you are paid, can not be said for the service but it’s still up to you what you prefer.

To continue on what is seen when looking at the product side, we find the camera on the front and a light sensor. However, the quality is rather poor so do not count on it to send the great photos to your friends when you’re on the other side of the world on a paradise beach.

Take advantage of the presence of the light sensor to evoke a function incorporated in the system, the adjustment of the brightness of the display automatically according to the brightness of the surroundings. We were very disappointed by this function but it is usually on the shelves, adaptation to light context that is often improved.

Now speak of the screen. If we were a teacher and we had to fill out the report card of the tablet to “screen” you would write “could do better”. We must admit that 1280 × 800 is sufficient for a tablet but the iPad Retina us to want more. Especially since the screen is not even 1080p unlike many competitors. In terms of color, rendering the air less accurate than other screens but here we go in a more personal opinion and others may think differently.

About the brightness of the screen: at its peak, the screen is very visible in low light while it is lower than the iPad which is a very good thing. I often watch programs catching up on a shelf when it’s very dark around me and I appreciate a backlit display as possible. The Galaxy Note 10.1 is better able to satisfy me that the iPad at this level, I am delighted.

On the bottom, we find the 10-pin connector very similar to Apple before its proposed range of mobile products. Samsung change he to go to a copy of the port lightning? It was not until season 2 of “patents are great and the copy is even more awesome” to know and as you say the suspense is almost unbearable. Stop joking, operation is exactly similar to what on an iPad so if you have an iPad and you think switcher to a Galaxy Tab 10.1, you will not be disturbed.

Also note a microphone to the connector right because everything you say can be used against you it must be a microphone to record our conversations on Skype hectic.

Now on to the top. We can see from left to right: the jack, the infrared sensor, the microSD slot, volume buttons and the on / off button.

If the placement of the on / off buttons are logically above, we are more cautious for the volume buttons. Instead of being faced with a vertical up and down button, we are faced with a button left and right which is not very explicit to raise or lower the volume. We would have preferred to see on the side of the unit, it would have been explicit.

Good for the infrared sensor which will use the Galaxy Tab 10.1 as a remote control. By cons, putting the jack port on top is not very relevant since the cable will then come to rest on the screen to reach the ears, unless you pass underneath. Again, we would have preferred to have it on the side as much as the iPad tablet is size 16, 9, is used most often in landscape mode. Note that we have not removed all the plastic as you can see from the infrared sensor. This is not a defect or anything, just the protection when you receive the product.

Finish our tour virtual tour of the unit through the back of it.

Again, fingerprints are very visible even if it does not necessarily see in the picture. Little to say except that the rear camera is average (it is always better than less) but again for your vacation photos, consider a dedicated device rather than using the tablet.

Another essential element for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and visible to the rear, the S stylus pen. It fits into a space dedicated to the back of the tablet to avoid losing it. Once out of its location, the software will display TouchWiz new options but we will come back a little later in the test.

Shorter than a real pen, it fits comfortably in your hand and is very light. It has a physical button and 1024 levels of pressure. Well, that is what the documentation says because in reality 1024 levels or 512, I’m not really sure you see the difference. A note referring to the pen than any Wacom pen will do if you lost your S Pen since it is the same technology.

HP Pavilion G7-1300

Donnerstag, 11. Oktober 2012

HP presents its range of laptops Pavilion G7-1300, a family of 17.3-inch notebooks whose sole purpose is to assist you in everyday tasks without making you spend all your savings. For our test, this is one of the most powerful versions was sent to us: Pavilion G7-1355ef.


To keep his promise of power and price, HP was good to make some concessions and that is the frame that appears to bear the majority. It consists of an old shiny plastic – slightly glittery. If the assembly is correct, some parts, such as wrist, sink when pressed. It is clearly on the entry level.

The keyboard, despite the presence of chiclet keys, suffers from the same problem as the chassis. It is fully functional (separate numeric keypad, well used space), it is still fake. In use, we note a striking short and not always very quiet.

The touchpad has a better appearance. Despite the presence of a coating slightly serrated, it retains a smooth ride and comfortable. Management features such as zoom and vertical and horizontal scrolling with two fingers is also possible.

For its part, the webcam offers image reproduction “classic”. It is again one of a design which will service when needed, but no more.

Lacks USB 3.0, connector G7-1300 still has the means to adequately meet current needs with three USB 2.0 ports, VGA and HDMI output, but also a microphone jack and a headphone jack, a port RJ45 (Ethernet) and finally a card reader. Side optical drive, there is a DVD burner drive.

The rise in temperature, such as the rise in noise is fairly limited. We regret, however, that the expulsion of the air is done by the slice. When using the G7 on our knees, it takes all the heat directly on the legs.

Measures audio inputs / outputs are conclusive. The mic is clean, and the more it is possible to use a traditional headset (2 mini-jack connectors) or a model car kit (one connector at four points, as on smartphones).

Side against pregnant, it’s not fabulous significant harmonic distortion before reaching the maximum volume, frequency response moving. We had hope that a greater portion of the sound spectrum in the green or at least in the orange (graph above). Here, the large gap between the bass and mid-high does not leave much hope for the assessment of listening. And the total absence of higher frequencies is detrimental for music. The noise level can certainly be high but the quality is not at the rendezvous.

The screen

The glossy screen of Pavilion G7-1300 displays a definition of 1600 x 900 pixels. If the amount of information displayed on the screen is correct, it would obviously preferred to find a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), which is nothing exceptional about this size of notebook.

Anyway, the color rendition is pretty mediocre (delta E 12.2). Recent accuse, among other things, a blue (color temperature to 7900 Kelvin 6500 Kelvin against desired). Side contrast, it is not better: a black level measured at 0.62 cd / m² brightness for 184 cd / m², it does not exceed 300:1. If the use of a calibration profile can make the colors more natural colors, it can do nothing to enhance the contrast.

Configuration tested: Pavilion G7-1355ef

Configuration received test includes an Intel Core i3-2330M, 6GB memory, a graphics card AMD Radeon HD 7450M and 750GB hard drive (5400 rpm / min). Unlike the rest of our assessment test which can be applied to all Pavilion G7-1300 (see box), only the variation Pavilion G7-1355ef is concerned with our comments on performance.


The presence of the Intel Core i3-2330M, supported by no less than 6 GB of RAM, it is guaranteed to run without addicted common applications (office, web browsing, video playback …).

It can also run in a timely manner and in a timely manner heavier calculations (video encoding, image editing …). But be careful, if you practice this kind of activity on a frequent basis, opt for a Core i5 processor or better, Core i7, should be considered. Eventually the time savings can be quite substantial.

Without a SSD or HDD swift (7200 rev / min), the G7-1355ef is a little less than a minute to start and run different software. Extinction is about it a little less than fifteen seconds.


For graphics, AMD is who gets stuck with the Radeon HD 7750M. Perfectly at ease to decode Full HD video, it is however giving away wings 1355ef Pavilion G7-in games. Indeed, past little greedy few titles (FIFA 12 …), you must be willing to make concessions on the level of detail at first, then for the most demanding titles (Metro 2033 …), on definition.


If the dimensions (41.2 x 26.8 x 3.7 cm) and weight (3 kg) of this laptop are not suitable for travel, autonomy measured at 4 hours (video playback, headphones plugged in, screen at 100 cd / m², Wi-Fi and backlit keyboard disabled) allows him to not be too dependent on one outlet. It can therefore be transported from one room to another without necessarily walking charger.

Family Pavilion G7-1300

Family Pavilion G7-computer 1300 is very broad because nothing on the manufacturer’s website there are no less than 13 models with a price difference of about 30% between the two extremes.

Power configurations proposed model is that the office should remain your main activity in a range of variants for activity much larger, as the one tested here (G7-1355ef). It is this last which seems to offer the best power / price.

CPU power is not the only difference can be found between the different versions. The hard disk capacity can also vary from 320 GB to 750 GB

Side graphics, only models with AMD HD 7450M will offer some opportunities Thurs Again, the latter two criteria, the G7-1355ef that seems the most interesting since it includes both a hard disk of 750 GB graphics card AMD HD 7450M.

Asus Zenbook UX31A

Donnerstag, 27. September 2012

The latest in the series of Zenbook HP Pavilion DV3 is probably not very original, with a design that has been known for quite some time but it is very attractive. Outside no surprises, there is a frame of high quality aluminum. The colors chosen are sober (dark gray screen and raw aluminum for the base) and the finish is among the best we have encountered in the PC world. If one were to fault, it is on the side patchwork caused by the different finishes used. To look more closely, we find nevertheless that HP Pavilion DV4 is slightly heavier and a little thicker than its predecessors. If there is only one millimeter and sixty grams, it also shows that Asus does not hesitate to change its chassis needed.

The connection has been enriched since HP Pavilion DV6 and is now well stocked for a 13 inch. There are three USB ports (all version three), HDMI and mini-VGA and a card reader. Small wonder, Asus delivers with his machine adapters mini-VGA to VGA, USB to Ethernet and even a protective cover. Attention that we appreciate as it became rare. The keyboard is large and comfortable and it is now backlit. In addition to a manual setting, a brightness Compaq Presario V5100 sensor is provided for adjusting the lighting.

The touchpad of HP Pavilion DV7 left us with mixed feelings, imprecise and not always the manager “gestures”. After a few days of using the UX32VD we can say that there are better. It is generally more responsive and gestures are better supported, but it is still a good notch below the best PC, without even mentioning the Macbooks …

The HP Pavilion DV6000 is the first representative of the second generation ultrabook we test. But more than a simple change of processor, Asus model stands out thanks to its Full HD screen!

The Asus ultrabook Dell Latitude E6400 looks like two drops of water to its predecessor, the UX31. It is in the old pots you make the best soups. This is what Asus had to say in designing the UX31A. It is therefore in the presence of a chassis designed all-aluminum design strongly reminiscent of the Macbook Air from Apple. If it can do a few eyebrows frown we must admit that there are worse inspiration. The Dell Latitude E5400 is distinguished by openly treating its aluminum hull, rendering brushed turned more “industrial” than Apple. It is pretty solid and although we must admit that we would like Asus is fixed once and for all on a color. This effect appears Zenbook three different rendering depending on whether one looks at the screen, the bottom of the machine or the palmrest. Personally I am very contented one, just to get a little more uniform appearance. The build quality is impeccable with parts fit perfectly. Dell Latitude E5500 has not lost his touch.

Full connectivity

The Dell Precision M6400 connector is a standard 13-inch, two USB ports, micro-HDMI and a card reader. Good point, Asus provides in the box VGA and Ethernet adapters and a protective cover. We would like all manufacturers do the same (yes Apple, I look at you) … If we had “chouiner” a little we regret the lack of Thunderbolt connector which begins to spread quietly in the high-end PC Dell Studio XPS 1647.

With 1.3 kg on the balance Zenbook is placed in the middle of the high category. This weight is for the use of aluminum, which makes it particularly strong.

The Dell Studio XPS 13 keyboard is still successful and is now backlit. Type long can be uncomfortable, however, since the angles of the machine a little bite in palms. The touchpad gives us mixed. If it is accurate and has a nice touch, the game software suffers from several flaws. The gestures (zoom with two fingers …) are too uncertain and especially the palm of the hand is badly ignored, which is very annoying when you type text.

A little Full HD

Dell Studio XPS 16 Using a Full HD 13-inch screen is the big novelty of this model. So certainly we are less impressed since the release of Retina Macbook but we must admit that this Zenbook ships finest screen we’ve seen on a ultrabook. Asus has had the good sense to move to an IPS viewing angles are very wide now. The Dell Studio 1735 brightness and contrast are also excellent and the colors are vivid. Icing on the cake, the slab is matte, which is known greatly improves readability. The very high resolution is a real pleasure for both work only to enjoy a film. We will just have to increase the font size in Windows settings to make it a little more readable.

If the display impresses you can not say the same of her. Despite marking the Bang & Olufsen integrated speakers are simply poor, we must therefore fall back on headphones to enjoy good sound.

The Dell Studio 1555 screen is not the only thing to have changed. The UX31A indeed uses the latest generation of Intel processors, called Ivy Bridge. Without a revolution latter sees performance increased by about 15% in fuel consumption and now includes USB 3.0 natively. More interestingly, the integrated graphics performance sees double. The HD4000 will not be provided capable of running recent games in full HD, but it is a good step forward. The Dell Studio 17 Core i7-3517U (double heart at 1.9 GHz) and 4 GB of memory we ensure good overall performance. It is however a little less satisfied with the SSD that is far from what is best in the moment. Note that two versions (128 and 256 GB) are available. No explosions performance but so will the progression UX31A a little more comfortable to use on a daily basis. We also note that the Widi, which transmits sound wirelessly from a Dell Vostro 1015 screen, is now in the game. Rather well thought out, this technology is currently under-utilized because of the lack of screens using the native.

The Dell Precision M4400 screen is a treat for the eyes. And because it adopts a resolution Full-HD! In addition, the brightness is high, excellent contrast and relatively accurate color. IPS requires, the viewing angles are wide and we can use his laptop Dell Latitude E5400 at all times. Another miracle, the slab is matt and perfectly readable in direct sunlight.

Of course high resolution causes some readability issues, it will not hesitate to drive the expansion of fonts for comfort. Without competing with the Macbook on board the Retina slab notebook that easily takes the second place. We are especially impressed that the display is clearly better than the one used on the Dell Latitude E5500. One can only hope that Asus continues on this path.

Note that the speakers are surprises correct for this type of machine. The sound is clean enough not to want to insert rods into the eardrums and the whole is powerful enough sound to a small room.

This notebook Dell XPS M1530 does not heat excessively and is rather quiet. The autonomy that exceeds 5:30 ET correct, even if it does not reach the 7:00 Folio 13 HP. The charger itself is very compact (and nice) which is rather rare for a ultrabook.

The Dell XPS M1730 is an evolution of a solid foundation. With a nice frame, very well finished and generous trade policy (adapters supplied, miracle!) Zenbook could this just be simply a good ultraportable. Asus, however, did not rest on its laurels we laying a simple update carrying a more powerful processor. With its beautiful display the Toshiba PA3817U-1BRS arises as the best ultrabook of time. There are still some small defect as a touchpad that sometimes makes his own or a format that could be more compact if Asus had done more for screen edges, but it is overall a more balanced the Ultrabook. A job that pays a little expensive but since UX31A still costs 1300 euros. It is expensive but there is currently no real competition at this level except maybe the Compaq Presario CQ61 Series 9 13-inch version.

Puzzling that the bowels

The configuration is a muscular Ultrabook Compaq Presario M2000 with a processor Intel Core i7-3517U, 4 GB of RAM and a dedicated graphics card. Admittedly, the GeForce 620M used is far from being a great warrior, but it adds a little punch to all, especially for video editing or photo editing that operate Nvidia CUDA acceleration. However the game will be difficult, especially if you want to use the native resolution. Even Compaq Presario V2000 have a dedicated chip you wonder why Asus did not choose something more powerful, such as a GT640M.

It also regrets that the Compaq Presario M2500 manufacturer has opted for a hybrid solution for storage, we believe an SSD is much more suited to a high-end machine. At worst hackers can without too much trouble to change the disc, the bowels of the machine is easily accessible (and bonus, the opening does not break the warranty!). Overall performance Compaq Presario V2100 Series put this at the top of the basket of Ultrabooks. Only real downside, the battery life is disappointing. With about three and a half hours video playback, it is far from the best in the industry. Metal frame forces the bottom of the notebook can become quite hot, but nothing unbearable.

The Compaq Presario V2200 does not appear to be quite useful when we received it. After all, Asus Ultrabook already proposed a Full HD … However we must recognize that the manufacturer has really improved its copy, the particular screen is simply superb. Sold 1150 euros, this Ultrabook is certainly expensive but well worth it. Finally, the main competitor is probably another Compaq Presario V2600 .we have already tested some time ago. Sold at the same price and also equipped with a Full HD screen, it is lighter but less powerful. For you to see what is your priority, but whatever your choice you can not go wrong!

Dell Latitude E6400

Freitag, 21. September 2012

During the summer, Dell Latitude E6400 renewed its professional range with the “E” series. There are many improvements over the previous generation including a completely new chassis advertised as particularly rigid and features – often optional – who are upgrading from the competition. The Latitude E can thus receive a screen with LED backlight brightness sensor, a backlit keyboard, HSDPA modem, etc.. At the technological level, the range is of course based on the platform “Centrino 2″ and Dell announced a range quite impressive despite the presence of an NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160m. There are so many things to check with our Dell Latitude D620 Battery premium …

New look

Black and angular, the new Latitude E etrennent what Dell calls the “Industrial Design”. Fans of the famous Thinkpad will not be disoriented! Even large silver hinges with beveled corners are clearly inspired by the design of Big Blue … The double scoring system is still present but the trackpoint inherits a third button, once again, just like the Thinkpad! With the range Dell Latitude D630 Battery, Dell attack so clearly its competitor always in the workplace.

From the first minutes of the grip, the Latitude E6400 mark a clear break with the previous generation (eg D620): Exit plastics painted and moderately stiff. The Dell Latitude E4200 Battery inspires quality and rigidity. In fact, it does not inspire: it’s solid! The opening screen is a central button that leaves an impression somewhat mixed. But the hinges are exemplary. They are firm and wish to hold the screen perfectly in place. No game to lament, not the slightest oscillation of the screen and they keep strictly slab regardless of angle (limited to 160 °).

New chassis!

For information, the first portable Dell Latitude E5400 consumer prices and use a simple plastic shell and ribs provide rigidity … The only metal parts are usually hinges. The Latitude older generation used a frame “device” called “tri-metal”. A name for a highly technical architecture actually quite commonplace now used by mobile phones mid-range … With the Latitude E line, Dell has inspired once more Lenovo to introduce a structure similar to the “Roll Cage” aboard the Thinkpad. The Dell Latitude E5420 motherboard and thus the hinges are grafted on a single piece of metal that provides rigidity copy. Unlike the “Roll Cage” Thinkpad (magnesium structure and outer shell internal plastic), the chassis of the new Latitudes E is “internal and external”. Clearly, some parts of the structure are also involved in the hull and the cell line (especially the back where the hinges attach). In the absence of truly innovate, Dell turn uses a technique very accomplished. Note that Dell and Lenovo are not yet in a totally one-piece chassis as the “Unibody” introduced by Apple with the latest Macbook and Macbook Pro (well ahead of the  Dell Latitude E5500 PC world) …

Under the laptop Dell Studio XPS 13, no question multiple access doors to the various components. A large metal plate “closes” the chassis. Must loosen 3 screws (2 for the hard disk and one for the cover itself) to access the internal components but the rigidity wins as the overall accessibility … You can also highlight the hard drive easily accessible: we do there are only three screws to unscrew to change disc (2 brackets and 1 for “caddy”)! In this idyllic picture, however, we note two caveats. The Dell Studio XPS 1647 hard drive is screwed directly to the chassis (no vibration system like the Thinkpad or Macbook Pro). Mechanical noise therefore tend to be magnified. Fortunately, this is only half evil insofar recent discs (same performance) are quite discreet. The second point “low” is metal against metal contact between the frame and the bottom cover. Despite a good fit and suitable tightening screws, frame issues sometimes “clong clong” fairly typical uninviting. Say they sabotage the perception of strength, they serve the intrinsic quality of the chassis … Simple “pad” easily eliminate these noises …

It turns?

For many of our readers, silent operation, especially in office is an important if not crucial in choosing a laptop. The Latitude E5500 we tested a model with a Core 2 Duo P9500 (2.53 GHz Penryn FSB 1066 MHz 6 MB cache) and a Quadro NVS 160m 256MB (580 MHz for the core and 16 stream processors at 1450 MHz), a configuration quite muscular for a 14 inch. Despite this power (albeit modest in 3D), the ventilation is triggered only rarely in office. As any fan PWM, starting a diet requires a little high but the speed drops very rapidly. The noise at cruising speed is weak and annoying (breath). Another important point, the fan stops almost immediately after a request from the processor and / or chipset. Only 3D games activate the fan at full power and it becomes audible. Last detail: Notebook heaters generally little … In the end, the Seagate Momentus 7200.3 250 GB is usually the largest source of noise. With an SSD, the Dell Latitude E5520 is a charm!

Pamper the user …

The Dell Latitude E6220 does not simply align the technological qualities. The backlit keyboard – Macbook copied – is one of the best we have encountered. Keys (smooth) are really nice to the touch, is exemplary firmness, running is good and it is quiet. Personally, I prefer even a “ICES” Thinkpad (note: NMB is the subcontractor that produces the “best keyboard IBM”). The Dell Inspiron 1520 lighting is controlled and may turn off automatically when the keyboard is not used or left on. Attention, the backlight option is charged € ~ 50 …

Without Trackpoint match the IBM scoring system “to stick” is correct. I must say that the addition of the third button is for many … However, the “cap” is quite small, rather poorly done, too soft and it does not provide as good a grip as the Thinkpad. In addition, it does not exceed enough buttons … Do not worry, it is quite feasible! The Dell Latitude E6320 touchpad recognizes movements of zoom and scroll “round and round” (like Samsung). Unfortunately, it does not autoscroll continuous or programmable zone and is not multitouch … Small detail, the palm rest is also metal … But unfortunately, like all metal parts of the Latitude E6400, it retains all traces fingers!

1440×900 screen with LED backlight is excellent. With the brightness set to 5 or 6, it competes with a TFT with a conventional neon. Maximum (level 15), the Dell Latitude E6420 screen is too bright for indoor use. Given the current weather conditions, it is difficult to estimate readability outdoors but without going too far, it should also be good. In the evening, a backlight set to 2, 3 or 4 is more than enough. A light sensor can dynamically adjust the backlight, which increases the autonomy … The angles are in the middle, without more, while color rendering is downright good and the backlight is uniform. Sump screen defends pretty well especially for a side stiffness model also end.

Multimedia, communication and connection

The Dell Latitude E6520 is equipped with a webcam, a microphone and a pair of speakers. If the first two do their job, the “speakers” are poor with his metal too. One would wonder if most Windows sounds were not changed until the record is different … Fortunately, the headphone jack does not suffer from this defect! The memory card reader is mounted on the front type SDHC but it did not recognize all SDHC test. Finally, the good old analog VGA port is supported by a digital DisplayPort.

Communication side, our Dell Latitude E6510 top model provides: Intel Wifi Link 5300 AGN Intel 82567 Gigabit V92 modem, Bluetooth and HSPA EDR (Broadcom). ESATA and FireWire complete the package. Infrared goes out the window … One ExpressCard slot and a docking connection can extend the capabilities of the machine.

Small details …

Dell Inspiron E1405 Battery has apparently treated its Latitude line E in detail. Thus, the power outlet is located at the rear as well as RJ11 and RJ45. The four USB ports are located on both sides of the laptop. Left or right handed, no cables will be penalized by adding an external mouse … Note that the lower left USB port is combined USB and eSATA! And yes, you might as well connect a USB device as a hard drive eSATA. Frankly practice! Usually placed in the wrist rests, the biometric reader is here next to the keyboard, as the speaker. This is more convenient when the laptop is used on the knees (provided they are handed) … In this type of application, we also appreciate the completely flat and smooth bottom of the laptop Dell Inspiron E1505.

The lights are blue including the webcam and the LED placed into the supply side laptop. The marriage of blue and black is a success story that gives the Latitude E a compromise between “restraint professional” and trendy design … Dell has not yielded to the latest fashion of placing areas tactile volume control or multimedia features. To assist the keyboard, the Dell Inspiron E1705 Battery relies on three buttons increase and decrease the volume and mute. Simple, clean, functional and unadorned: they love …


The Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is a laptop 14 inches wide. It displays 2495 grams on the scale with high battery capacity of 85 Wh. As on Thinkpad T40p since it exceeds the back of the laptop. If the Latitude E6400 is one of the smaller models with 335 x 244 x 33 mm, do not forget to add 20 mm in depth for the battery “beyond” … The adapter is quite large (145 x 70 mm ) but very flat (16 mm), which facilitates the storage. And nothing to spoil, Dell Inspiron 13R is equipped with a two-pin plug (without unnecessary grounding). Side weight, it is a good average with 400 grams including cables. However, you will not have to wrestle you all day long because the autonomy of up to 6 hours with WiFi active and backlight controlled by the light sensor. With the backlight set to 50%, it is still 5 ½ hours under the same conditions … A perfect laptop for all mobile!

We can also note that the chipset Intel PM45 (Cantiga) enjoys a 65nm (although it is still ICH9m 130 nm) against 90 nm for PM965 machines Santa Rosa, which is beneficial for autonomy.

Dell Inspiron 1200 Last detail related to mobility, modular bay that contains a DVD burner Matshita here UJ862A is now 9.5 mm high (like the Thinkpad T Series) against 12.5 mm before. That would produce chassis as thin as competitors but in return, Dell no longer offers optional battery bay. It must pass through the battery slice that enhances the laptop quite significantly.


Dell Inspiron 1300 With a Core 2 Duo P9500, a Seagate Momentus 7200.3 and 4 GB of DDR2-800, this machine is swift frankly, whatever work to do. By cons, do not expect anything in 3D graphics chip as the Quadro NVS 160m. It is not more powerful than the Quadro NVS 140 that the Thinkpad R61 team tested last year … It does also not better than the FireGL V5000 and Radeon X1600 in T60 and T60p from 2006. Many opt for a model equipped with a GM45 PM45 instead of torque and Quadro NVS 140m. Without using the optional battery of 85 Wh, autonomy should be of the same ilk.

Dell Vostro 1520 here is not much to report about the performance but about the DVD compression. Indeed, the Latitude E6400 request almost a minute longer than the Thinkpad T61p with a less powerful processor. Curiously, the CPU load fell regularly for no logical reason.

Momentus, Digitus USB 2.0

We took advantage of the presence of the Dell Inspiron 14R eSATA port to test the Seagate Momentus 7200.3 250GB of origin in the internal bay and via eSATA and USB 2.0 via adapter Digitus and through a housing IcyBox. Connected via eSATA, the drive is as fast as in its internal bay (which is normal). Note that to take advantage of the “hot plug” eSATA, ICH must be configured in AHCI. Mode or IDE compatible, connect the disk causes system hang … Between USB and eSATA, the average transfer rate from 17 Mb / s to 72 MB / s. Sans comment! In these tests, we installed the system on a OCZ Core who is unfortunately clamped at ~ 110 MB / s read. In contrast, the Dell Inspiron 1464 Intel X25-m fully expressed!


With its range E Inspiron 1545 Battery, Dell introduced a new chassis that combines highly effective stiffness and accessibility. The change is also reflected in a change of look and the transition to the Industrial Design clearly developed to attract fans Thinkpad. The Latitude E6400 that we tested is equipped with the most powerful components for a 14 inch wide but it does not heat and fan noise never run more than necessary. High performance, the Toshiba pa3817u-1brs is also a reference in terms of autonomy: up to 6 hours battery with 85 Wh. To avoid spoiling anything, the keyboard and dual pointing are really perfect. They easily seduce any unconditional Thinkpad! Especially with the keyboard backlight option that matches the comfort of Thinklight. Still on the strengths, 1440×900 LED screen (optional) controlled by a light sensor is really a must. Default side, we can pin some noise associated with metal against metal chassis and enclosures poor. In the current offering, the Dell Inspiron 6400 is a laptop that we recommend …

Dell XPS M1530: 9.5 / 10

To: Rigid frame, design, finishes, hot little ventilation rarely active and quiet 6:00 85 Wh battery (optional) LED 1440×900 screen (optional), backlit keyboard (optional), 4 USB ports including a combined eSATA , DisplayPort, very good keyboard, trackpoint, 3 buttons, except leading performance …

Cons: … 3D pregnant poor, many options, noise chassis bit programmable touchpad, trackpoint cap of poor quality.
