Netbook Review Nokia Booklet 3G

Before the advent of compressed air first, in the days of generation iPhone first, netbooks have the option of choice when the battery life, low weight and low input prices are problem. Nokia also wanted a piece of cake and presented its 3G Booklet in 2009.

A case of aluminum and had integrated 3G UMTS module were to attract buyers that the ticket price is set quite high, with around € 699 (RRP). Today, more than two years later, a group consisting of an Intel Atom Z530 with integrated GMA 500 graphics chip, 1 GB of DDR2 memory and a capacity of 120 GB hard drive should be left on the shelf. Although this book is for sale, and currently there is still a price of about $ 300. This is very daring, because the options of low-end and high end.

Nokia uses a silver and black design is very basic. The aircraft aluminum is used for most regions and creates an appearance of high quality material and feels. But in general, they provide a significant advantage in weight (1.23 kg). Moreover, the dimensions conform to normal rules.

The finish is impressive and does not meet the premium application is suggested by the price. For example, the display glass breaks in the area of ​​the camera, and apparently only stuck. Other parts of the complaint case fails stability, the ability to define part of the screen and casing, and a crackling sound when handling brochure.

Another drawback is the screen covered with a layer of cheap plastic, high gloss. This layer is very sensitive and therefore not resistant to scratches. Only the 6-cell battery can be removed and replaced. Positive: It fits tight. Access to internal components of the system is not possible. You should be happy with the given beam.

The Handbook of communication options as convincing, except for two small flaws. In addition to a modern WLAN 802.11 b / g / n module incorporates a 3G UMTS, no RJ45 network connector for transmission cable. Besides this, the Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR version is no longer so far.

Slightly higher in given delivery. In addition to the usual accessories (battery, power cord adapter and documentation), Nokia includes a small cleaning cloth, ear headset and USB charging and data cable. We need soft neoprene sleeve or sleeve, preferably in the design of matching for images.

Device connectivity is divided into left and right, and is typical of the netbook. In addition, three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and SD card reader, a common standard for the time of release, are offered. However, to be honest, we must emphasize that the HDMI port was still a rarity in netbooks, two or three years ago. There is no reason to complain about in terms of positioning or ambient air.

Intel Atom Z530 a single core processor with two son, a 512 KB L2 cache and a clock frequency of 1.6 GHz works within the netbook Finland. This package, with GMA 500 integrated graphics, a solution was not used in the field of netbook, even in 2009. This combination of performance is limited to simple office tasks. The particular combination of equipment is not suitable for high-definition video or 3D games.

The Silverthorne processor is placed at the end of our database in multi-threaded Cinebench R10 rendering (32 bit) with 813 points. Intel Atom N270, the first netbooks running moves at a comparable level. 3G The book has integrated Intel GMA 500 graphics device proves to be too slow. GPU only 120 points in 3DMark05 just old.

Similar configurations, such as the MSI Wind U115 or Asus Eee PC 1101HA is in its immediate vicinity. However, units with an Intel Atom N270 and the GMA 950 is a little faster. These two options are not guaranteed acceptable performance 3D and video, though. Overall a mixed performance, where Intel Atom N570 or AMD Fusion E-350 APU used in netbooks today are clearly ahead.

A small 1.8-inch Toshiba hard drive (model: MK1235GSL) works in the book as a memory device. This is not the fastest, because the usual assumptions of the SATA II bus, and only 4200 rpm. This is just low enough to 36 MB / sec read and 34 MB / sec in a write operation in Mark disk crystal. Access rates (AS SSD) is not overwhelming, either. Together with the material results in low start-up time long and slow settings window Windows 7 against new netbooks.
