TOSHIBA Satellite L750D battery

Par applebattery, 06/09/2012 à 6:26

Windows 8 does not come with drivers for the Bluetooth module and the memory card reader. A driver for the Bluetooth module could be installed from the Windows update later on. To activate the memory card reader, we used the corresponding Windows 7 drivers from the Lenovo website. TOSHIBA Satellite M323 battery

Ubuntu Linux 12.04 was running without any difficulties as well. WLAN module, webcam, memory card reader and Bluetooth worked immediately. The video acceleration could be activated by subsequent installation of AMD drivers. It was possible to play our test video (FullHD, H.264) without any difficulties. Youtube videos in full HD resolution played smoothly after the additional installation of Adobe Flash Player as well. TOSHIBA Satellite M321 battery

The maintenance of the notebook is not a problem. TOSHIBA Satellite M320 battery There is a large service door at the bottom, which provides access to most components. It was possible to easily replace the integrated hard drive by a different model. The hard-drive cage is held by two screws only. Upgrading the RAM is a piece of cake. Only one of the two available memory banks is used. The notebook can use up to 16 GB of memory. Anyone who wants to double the existing two GB to four GB must invest about 15 euros at the moment. There is access to the wireless modules as well. Access to the fan is limited. TOSHIBA Satellite M311 battery

The notebook comes with a 12-month carry-in warranty. TOSHIBA Satellite M310 battery The customer sends the notebook directly to Lenovo in case of technical difficulties. Lenovo offers to extend the warranty period to 24 months for about 30 euros. In the case of our test model, however, this would not be necessary. Hidden between the manuals of the notebook was a little note giving the buyer an extended warranty of altogether two years. TOSHIBA Satellite M308 battery That is a really nice gesture. Usually, so cheap laptops get a twelve-month warranty only. We do not know whether this extended warranty is included in every Lenovo G585. There is the possibility that the extension is reserved to particular merchants. Only for the battery the buyer still gets the usual one-year warranty.

The Lenovo G585 has a chic let-style keyboard (called "AccuType" keyboard by Lenovo) including a numeric keypad. TOSHIBA Satellite M307 battery Like the keyboard of the Lenovo G575, the G585 keyboard makes typing really pleasant. The keys have sufficient key stroke. The "enter", "backspace" and the right "shift" key are smaller than usual. These keys can easily be missed but you get used to it after a while. People writing a lot get a good keyboard in an affordable notebook here. TOSHIBA Satellite M306 battery

The touchpad has a size of 9.7 cm x 4.7 cm and is part of the palm rest. Touchpad and palm rest overlap without edges. The touchpad's surface is slightly dimpled. The fingers can easily slide over the surface. The two mouse buttons sit beneath the touchpad. Both have a clear pressure point. The touchpad is from Synaptics and is multi-touch capable. Functions such as zooming-in with two-fingers gestures are therefore available. TOSHIBA Satellite M305 battery

Lenovo launches the computer on the market with a 15.6-inch display, common and expected for this price range, which has a native resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The screen surface shines. LEDs illuminate the display. Lenovo does not offer other displays. For such a low-priced notebook, the Lenovo model has an unusually bright display (average 236 cd/m²). Even much more expensive computers will not reach this in most of the cases. The screen illumination is fine, too. TOSHIBA Satellite M302 battery


  The situation is different for contrast and black level. Here you will notice again that the display is in a very low-cost notebook. TOSHIBA Satellite M301 battery The black level is relatively high with 1.61 cd/m. Black areas are shown in shades of gray. Also, the contrast ratio of 145:1 is not worth mentioning. It's not fun to watch movies on the screen. Dark colors blur into a gray mass. It works better with animated films, which offer many intense and bright colors. It is better to watch movies on this display in a darkened room. TOSHIBA Satellite M30 battery

Basically, the screen brightness is sufficient for outdoor use. TOSHIBA Satellite L775D battery Direct sunlight, however, should be avoided. Otherwise, the reflective surface would make using the computer difficult. The low contrast of the display makes is necessary to avoid direct sunlight as well. The Lenovo G585 feels rather comfortable in shadows. We should not forget about the shiny casing of the notebook. In direct sunlight, reflections of the casing may distract you. TOSHIBA Satellite L775 battery

Changing the vertical viewing angle quickly makes the image collapse. The situation is different with the horizontal viewing angle. In this case, the image remains stable on a larger angle. All in all, this result is not surprising. TOSHIBA Satellite L770D battery

The Lenovo G585 is playing in the office equipment league. It is supposed to manage everyday tasks such as chatting, surfing in the Internet, playing YouTube videos, DVDs and word processing. It's also good as a video player station in the living room, because it works quietly and has an HDMI port. TOSHIBA Satellite L770 battery

Currently Lenovo offers another variant of the G585 (AMD Vision C-60, AMD Radeon HD6290). This is based on the first AMD Brazos platform and has a weaker processor. The device, however, comes with Windows 7. The price is currently at around 370 euros. TOSHIBA Satellite L755D battery

Note: A screenshot of GPU-Z cannot be provided at this point. The tool could not read all the data to the GPU and got stuck during every attempt. TOSHIBA Satellite L755 battery
 
  Lenovo designed the Lenovo G585 with an APU (Accelerated Processing Unit - a combination of CPU and GPU) from the company AMD. This is called "AMD Vision E2-1800". The CPU part of the APU consists of a dual-core processor that operates at a speed of 1.7 GHz. The full power of the processor is available even in battery mode. The operating speed of the GPU, however, reduces from 523.1 MHz down to 283.3 MHz. TOSHIBA Satellite L750D battery

AMD has designed the APU for usage in netbooks or subnotebooks. Therefore, the TDP of the APU is correspondingly low with 17 Watts. This is on par with ULV processors from Intel. The competitors of the E2-1800 are not Intel's core processors, but Intel's Atom processor and eventually slow Celeron processors, too. In the Cinebench test, the E2-1800 is positioned on the same level as other netbook processors like the Intel Atom or the AMD E-450. TOSHIBA Satellite L750 battery


  In the PCMark tests, the Lenovo G585 can compete against competitors such as the Lenovo G575 (AMD E-350, TOSHIBA Satellite L745D battery AMD Radeon HD 6310), the HP 635 LH416EA (AMD E-240, AMD Radeon HD 6310) and the Acer Aspire 5253 (AMD E-350, AMD Radeon HD 6310), which also relies on netbook technology. The situation is different with machines that have 'real' notebook CPUs, such as the Acer TravelMate 5744Z-P624G50Mikk (Intel Pentium P6200, Intel HD Graphics). They are ahead of the Lenovo G585. TOSHIBA Satellite L745 battery

Even if the Windows 7 performance index represents the processor as the weakest component, it must be said that in daily use, the hard drive is the weakest link in the chain. Starting applications or installers and accessing files is painfully slow. TOSHIBA Satellite L740D battery We checked it out and installed a used SSD (Crucial C300 64 GB, used price about 50-60 euros) into the notebook and were more than pleasantly surprised. The system ran much smoother. We recommend any buyer to replace the hard disk. Even brand new SSDs with capacities of 120 GB are currently available at a price of about 80 - 100 Euros. Those who do not require larger amounts of storage space should think about it. TOSHIBA Satellite L740 battery

Lenovo designed the G585 with a hard drive from the Scorpio Blue series by Western Digital. TOSHIBA Satellite L730 battery The hard drive offers a storage capacity of 320 GB and operates at a speed of 5,400 revolutions per minute. The average access rate of 59.5 MB/s is to be positioned in the rear middle at best. The access time of 20.9 ms is too high. As already mentioned earlier, the hard drive does not respond very well in daily usage. The execution of programs and applications takes too much time. TOSHIBA Satellite L675D battery


  The GPU part of AMD Vision E2-1800 APU is labelled "AMD Radeon HD7340". TOSHIBA Satellite L675 battery It is a graphics chip from the beginner's class. It supports DirectX 11 and Shader Model 5.0. The chip operates with a speed of 283.3 MHz in idle mode, which is about 40 percent faster than the AMD Radeon HD6310 graphics chip, which is in the APU of the Lenovo G575. The base rate of the Radeon HD7340 is 523.1 MHz and can be accelerated up to 680 MHz per Turbo. This happens automatically. In battery mode, the GPU runs at a constant speed of 283.3 MHz. TOSHIBA Satellite L670D battery

The test results of the various 3DMark versions are on the level of Intel's HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge) chip. The previous model Lenovo G575 is doubtlessly beaten in every 3DMark benchmarks. The Lenovo G585 even outperforms the competitors HP 635 LH416EA, Acer Aspire 5253 and Acer TravelMate 5744Z-P624G50Mikk. TOSHIBA Satellite L670 battery

For a device like the G585, the 3D performance is absolutely second-class. TOSHIBA Satellite L655D battery Therefore the 3DMark results do not matter too much. The GPU is much more useful for another reason: It comes with an integrated video decoder (AMD UVD3 decoder). This takes over most of the work of the video playback. And this task it performs well. We played a test video (FullHD resolution, H.264) on the G585 and observed the CPU load. This was predominantly (significantly) less than 25 percent. Short-term peaks of up to 50 percent were also observed. It was a similar situation when playing YouTube videos of the same quality. TOSHIBA Satellite L655 battery

TOSHIBA Satellite M310 Battery

The Lenovo G585 is not a computer for those gamers playing high-elaborate computer games. It was never designed to. Even in the lowest quality level, the frame rate does not suffice to provide a smooth gaming experience. However, this is perfectly fine and also expected. One should always keep in mind that this computer is powered by netbook components. The strengths of the G585 are clearly in other areas. TOSHIBA Satellite L635 battery

The Lenovo G575 deserves criticism by us for its fans. It is very loud sometimes - even in idle mode. TOSHIBA Satellite L600D battery Under full load, the volume reached clearly disturbing levels. The Lenovo G585 is much better here. The unit always stays quiet in idle mode. The fan runs constantly, but it can be hardly heard. Well done. Lenovo has managed to lower the volume under load from 39.6 - 41.3 dB (G575) down to 33.2 – 36 dB (G585). They deserved accolade for this too. TOSHIBA Satellite L630 battery

It should be pointed out that the large volumes were only achieved during our full load test. This test is torturing the notebook parallel with the benchmarks "Furmark" and "Prime95". In daily use, the Lenovo G585 proves to be a quiet notebook. Only the DVD drive makes some noise. Most users would notice when watching a DVD, if at all. But then the sound of the movie drowns out the DVD drive. TOSHIBA Satellite L600 battery

We praised the low operating temperatures of the Lenovo G575. TOSHIBA Satellite L515D battery Even under full load, the 30 degrees Celsius mark was reached at only one measuring point. The Lenovo G585 cannot completely catch up with this. It is warmer while idle as well as under full load. However, the temperatures of the G585 are still perfectly fine. TOSHIBA Satellite L515 battery Under full load, the notebook achieved a maximum temperature of 34°C at two measuring points. In idle mode, we were able to measure temperatures exceeding the 30 degrees Celsius mark at two measurement points. All in all, one can work comfortably well with the device, even under full load. Even if the device is balanced on legs. The palm rest stays cool all the time. TOSHIBA Satellite L510 battery


  The stereo speakers of the Lenovo G585 are - in contrast to the G575 - at the bottom of the notebook. The speakers produce a perfectly acceptable sound. Language is easy to understand. We have tested many notebooks with way worse speakers so far. For an office device, the speakers are more than adequate. TOSHIBA Satellite L323 battery

In terms of power consumption, Lenovo has done a great job. TOSHIBA Satellite L322 battery The level of its predecessor has basically been kept. The maximum power input of the G575 under full load is 28.8 watts; the G585 reaches figures of 29 watts. The situation is different in idle mode: Lenovo managed to undercut the good values of the G575 (7.9 - 11 Watt) with the G585 (5.7 - 10.5 watts). The tiny power supply (8.8 cm x 3.5 cm x 2.6 cm) provides 40 watts maximum. This is more than adequate for the notebook. The battery has a capacity of 48 Wh. TOSHIBA Satellite L317 battery


  In idle mode, the computer stops after 8:40 h. The Lenovo G575 has a battery life of 6:52 h. We are testing the idle mode with the Battery Eater Reader test. Here, the screen operates at minimum brightness, the energy saver profile is activated and the wireless modules (WLAN, Bluetooth) are deactivated. TOSHIBA Satellite L315 battery

Under load, the Lenovo G575 lasts for 2:19 h minutes, which is slightly better than the G585 with a duration of 2:02 h. In the load test, the notebook completed the Battery Eater Classic test. Here, the screen is running at full brightness and the high performance profile and the wireless modules are activated. TOSHIBA Satellite L312 battery

A single battery charge held the practically relevant WLAN test running for 5:00 h. The Lenovo G575 yet squeezes another 13 minutes of running time out of a single battery charge and therefore reaches a total of 5:13 h. In this test, websites are automatically opened in 40-second intervals by a script. The energy-saver profile is activated and the display brightness is set to approximately 150 cd/m². TOSHIBA Satellite L311 battery

In the DVD test, the notebook reaches a running time of 4:01 h. That is enough to watch two long movies. In this test, the G585 again beats the G575, which offers a running time of 3:31 h. For the DVD test, the wireless modules are switched off and the screen is set to maximum brightness. The energy-saver profile or a higher profile (if the DVD does not play smoothly) is used. TOSHIBA Satellite L310 battery

For a computer in this price range, the battery life is excellent. Even many much more expensive laptops do not reach this battery life. Here, the low energy consumption of the components becomes noticeable. TOSHIBA Satellite C675D battery

The question from the introduction can be easily answered at this point: TOSHIBA Satellite C675 battery with the G585, Lenovo offers a persisting office notebook. The term "netbook in XL" hits the bull's eye. The buyer gets a cheap notebook, which has a long battery life, is quiet and cool, and also consumes very little energy. For such features, one usually has to spend way more money. The good keyboard should be highlighted once more as well, something that should not betaken for granted in such a cheap Notebook. TOSHIBA Satellite C655D battery

The G585 easily masters daily computing tasks like word processing, reading/ writing e-mails, TOSHIBA Satellite C655 battery chatting, skyping or watching DVDs and YouTube videos. But nothing more. The performance of the netbook APU is limited. Even the slowest Intel Celeron processor provides more computing power than the CPU part of AMD Vision E2-1800. Those, who want to play demanding computer games or do intensive photo editing or video editing, should not even think about buying the G585. TOSHIBA Satellite C650D battery

If someone is looking for a cheap typewriter, which handles all types of inter-communication and can play videos of all kinds in addition, he is making a good choice with the G585. Users of conventional netbooks should take a look at the Lenovo G585 too. If you are tired of staring at a small netbook screen, you might do better with the G585. For a price of 339 euros, the buyer gets a sound offer. TOSHIBA Satellite C650 battery

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of ultrabooks? Slim case (perhaps metal), 13" screen, low weight and maybe an SSD drive besides a long battery life? TOSHIBA Satellite C645D battery

In addition to these basics, Fujitsu rather seemed focused on the idea of how to install as much hardware as possible into the laptop's smaller size while designing the Lifebook U772. Therefore, the 14" screen is installed in a case where rivaling manufacturers would at most use a 13 inch screen together with this size, among other things. The U772's price starts at about EUR 1200 depending on the configuration. TOSHIBA Satellite C645 battery

Naturally, it has to convince - the new Lifebook's target group is heavily fought over. TOSHIBA Satellite C600D battery Many manufacturers fight in the premium price range of EUR 1000 to 1300 with partly very well-designed, elegant ultrabooks for supremacy. The main competition is set up well here. Principally, it was Apple who invented the ultra-portable notebook category - long before the "Apple-less" rivals - via its MacBook Air and omitted a DVD drive for the first time in 2008. TOSHIBA Satellite C600 battery Now, besides the MacBook Air 13", particularly Asus has become just as an important player in this sector with a few of its Zenbooks, e.g. UX31A or UX32VD. But Samsung also offers slim and mobile devices in the high-end sector with its Series 9 (see 900X3B-A01). TOSHIBA Satellite C  battery

TOSHIBA Satellite M310 Battery

Many of these laptops feature very high-res screens with up to 1920 x 1080 pixels in a 13.3" screen size in addition to the typical ultrabook advantages. Is a 14 inch HD screen enough to at least draw even with the competition? TOSHIBA Portege M915 battery

The U772 looks very impressive when just unboxed. The first thing we notice positively when picking up the new Lifebook for the first time is its chassis' low weight of 1.4 kg. When placed on our table, the case's slimness impresses us. With a height of 1.56 cm, Fujitsu's ultrabook is even over a millimeter slimmer than the MacBook Air 13". This is also the reason why the RJ45 LAN port is designed as a flatter connector. TOSHIBA Portege M862 battery

Nevertheless, its rigidness is satisfying. The slim base is extremely stiff and even the display lid defies quite a bit of pressure considering its narrowness. In return, Fujitsu's laptop does not completely convince in terms of feel. The display lid's magnesium surface sooner has a plastic feel to it. The base unit makes a much higher-quality impression. TOSHIBA Portege M825 battery

The U772 even manages the test that has taught many lightweight notebooks the meaning of fear well - the opening test. TOSHIBA Portege M823 battery A tiny recess is on the lid's center front edge and intuitively indicates where the laptop can be best opened. The lid opens very easily - even with only one hand without lifting the base for one second - great! TOSHIBA Portege M822 battery When the display is brought in position, it usually stays there immediately and stably without rocking for a longer period. The long hinge's stability is immediately noticed when adjusting the opening angle precisely. The maximum opening angle of 155° is just as thrilling. Thus, it is possible to work pleasantly on the Lifebook when it's placed on the lap during a cramped train ride. TOSHIBA Portege M821 battery

It is increasingly becoming untrue that ultrabooks frequently do not harbor many ports due to their chassis' slim design. The U772 does not blunder here either. TOSHIBA Portege M820 battery

Fujitsu installs everything of distinction among interfaces. For example, two USB 3.0 ports, a HDMI socket and the mini RJ45 port as well as a SD-XC card reader are on the case's right. The power socket, Kensington lock slot, one USB 2.0 port and headphone jack are on the left. Additionally, a SIM card for the built-in UMTS modem can be inserted at the rear below the display hinge. TOSHIBA Portege M810 battery

Since Fujitsu has primarily designed the Lifebook U772 for business customers, a docking port is also installed on the bottom and allows adding other interfaces via a docking station. Thus it is probably ahead of many competitors in this device category because they usually omit this expansion option. TOSHIBA Portege M808 battery

The U772 proves to be communication-eager. TOSHIBA Portege M807 battery Of course, you can connect to wired LAN not only via the included RJ45 dongle, but also wirelessly via WLAN (b/g/n - 2 x 2 Centrino 6205N) or UMTS (Sierra Wireless Gobi 3000). Intel's WLAN solution also supports the proprietary Wireless Display technology, which transmits screen content to monitors/projectors/flat screens that support this technology without cables. Bluetooth 4.0 is also on board and is covered by a dedicated Broadcom module (BCM207002). TOSHIBA Portege M806 battery

No half-measures are made here. In addition to the above mentioned port for a laptop lock, TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is installed as well as a fingerprint reader that is located in the wrist rest's lower right corner and thus cannot be enabled accidentally while typing. Besides these features, it is also possible to encrypt hard disk content. Security is ensured for this ultrabook. TOSHIBA Portege M805 battery

Apart from the user's manual, the PSU and the aforementioned mini LAN port dongle, a large software bundle is also included in the big box. It contains programs for Web design or photo editing as well as compression and archiving software. Currently there is unfortunately no matching port replicator for the U772 online, but will likely be available soon. TOSHIBA Portege M803 battery

There are no visible screws on the Lifebook U772 and thus you cannot access the hardware on your own. Consequently, it is not possible to upgrade or exchange anything later, which is too bad. TOSHIBA Portege M802 battery

Fujitsu standardly grants a 24 month warranty on the U772's proper functionality. A 5 year warranty extension including bring-in service costs reasonable EUR 65. In return, the 5 year on-site service costs steep EUR 290.60. TOSHIBA Portege M801 battery

The U772 is extremely slim. Regrettably. As we experienced in the test, Fujitsu doesn't stop at nothing like in the case of the keyboard. The first thing we noticed was the stiff keys with a very low stroke and poor feedback while typing. TOSHIBA Portege M800 battery

Actually, the problem is quite logical: When a laptop has such a slim design, there is not much room left for the key drop beside the electronics and results in a key drop of just only one millimeter (see picture below). The pressure point is just as inferior. The resistance is sometimes more and sometimes less palpable. But you never get a clear, haptic feedback whether the key was really hit. You also have to strike the keys with relatively high force. TOSHIBA Equium U400 battery

This phenomenon is especially noticed in the space bar. When not enough pressure is applied somewhere in the center third, the chances are that the keystroke will not be accepted immediately at the first try. We thus found ourselves returning to our old, forceful typing habits while typing this review and simply pounded on every key in a hit and miss style known from keyboards of the 90s - however, we did not make as many typos then and our fingers did not ache as much due to the longer keystroke.
