Zenith Admirale detailed review

The Value Laptop For Office
Zenith has launched three affordable laptops for entry-level consumers and students: Admirale, Director and Presidio. The cost cutting is evident from the start—this Santa Rosa laptop has a low-powered Intel T2310 processor running at 1460 MHz. The 2 GB of RAM is a pleasant surprise in an entry-level laptop. The lustrous grey body looks good and is rugged; even the hinges seem strong and the single latch on the lid allows you to open it with one hand.

The 14.1-inch display is one of the dimmest TFTs we have seen. Forget outdoors, you may have difficulty viewing it indoors if the room is brightly lit.

The keypad is spacious and comfortable, and the keys offer good feedback. The touchpad is good too, and we have no complaints. Movie playback is good, and the speakers produce clear sound, though not particularly loud. The dim TFT subtracts from the movie experience obviously. TV-out and D-Sub ports will let you show your presentations on bigger screens.

It’s obvious that the laptop is aimed at the office segment, and it does well in this regard. The batteries lasted for 2 hours 43 minutes in our battery drain test, which is pretty good. It should last a lot longer if office applications are all that you will use.
Windows Vista Starter Edition is the OS loaded, and it runs well thanks to the 2 GB of RAM. If needed, you can easily upgrade to a more powerful version of Vista. An integrated Web cam would have been a worthwhile and inexpensive value-add, and could have found use for office applications such as video conferencing.

At just Rs 27,990, this laptop strikes the right balance between price, performance and portability, and we recommend it for office work. If you look hard enough, though, you could find better bargains.
