BenQ Joybook S32-LE27 detailed review

A Joy To Use

As the name suggests the BenQ Joybook Series 32 of notebooks aims to bring joy and fun to teenagers. To start with, the LE27 notebook comes with a glossy white finish with a silver coloured strip on the lid that holds a big BenQ logo.

The laptop packs a 250 nit, Ultra Vivid 13.3-inch display that delivers crisp and vivid visuals and better brightness and contract levels. The BenQ Joybook has an onboard 1.3 megapixel webcam called the QEye.
It has a full-sized keyboard that is good to work on. The keys are a bit hard, but will not tire your fingers. There are a few annoying things about this keyboard too, such as the backspace key being shorter, and the Function key is on the outside. The touchpad on the other hand is a Zero-Gap touchpad, which is very sensitive and very comfortable to work on.

The Joybook runs on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 1.83 GHz with 1 GB of DDR2 RAM plus a 160 GB hard disc. The onboard stereo speakers are SRS Truesurround XT certified and are satisfactory.
In PC Mark 05, the BenQ Joybook was able to achieve 3742 PC Marks. The graphics are handled by the onboard Intel GMA X3100 chipset. We tested it using the 3D Mark utility and the BenQ Joybook was able to score 547 3D Marks.

The Fujitsu hard drive was able to achieve a drive index of 40.74 MBps in SiSoft Sandra, with a Random Access time of 10 ms.

The BenQ Joybook has the looks of a teen laptop, but performs as well as any other business notebook. We just wish it had a dedicated graphics solution.

Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 1.83 GHz, 1GB DDR2 Ram, 160 GB HDD, 13.3in, 250nits display, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, DVD burner.
