Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC-323 Review

The Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC-323 is a budget laptop with the usual performance level of the category and decently-built case. On the other hand, it has low system noise and waste heat accumulation. This isn’t the right laptop if you want long battery life and typing-friendly keyboard.  Like some low-priced laptops, Packard Bell EasyNote TE11HC-323 lacks USB 3.0 ports, while the HDMI out port is placed a bit too close with the available USB 2.0 ports.

The chiclet keyboard includes hotkeys for Social Media Hub of Windows 8 and volume control. But the keyboard layout is separated and looks very cramped. Prolific typists will notice that typing feels a bit cheap and spongy. The 15” HD display is suitable for average uses, with even brightness distribution and crisp colors. Unfortunately, the glossy display can be distracting outdoors and in brightly-lit rooms.

The 2.2GHz Intel Core i3 2328M processor is paired with two 4GB modules in dual-channel mode. The Hitachi 500GB 5400rpm HDD runs at 72MBps, which is suitable in most situations. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU and GeForce GT 620M are smoothly integrated with the Nvidia Optimus to allow balanced battery and processor performance.
