NEO launches two affordable laptops with Intel Core i3 & i5 processors

NEO, the brand that I would like to refer as the “laptop ng pang-masa” has released two affordable laptops featuring the powerful Intel Core i3 and Core i5 mobile processors. From their Basic line of laptop comes the B4103 N and B4105. NEO BasicNEO Basic B4103 N

  • Processor: Intel Core i3 330M (2.13 GHz), supports Hyper-Threading
  • OS: FreeDOS
  • Memory: 2GB DDR3
  • Graphics: Integrated Intel HD
  • Display: 14.0” HD LED
  • Storage: 320GB HDD
  • Optical disk drive: DVDRW Supermulti
  • Battery: 4400maH 6-cell Li-Ion
  • Weight: 2.2 kg

Price: 29,999

NEO Basic B4105

  • Processor: Intel Core i5 430M (2.26 GHz), supports Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost Technology
  • OS: Genuine Windows 7 Home Basic
  • Memory: 2GB DDR3
  • Graphics: Integrated Intel HD
  • Display: 14.0” HD LED
  • Storage: 320GB HDD
  • Optical disk drive: DVDRW Supermulti
  • Battery: 4400maH 6-cell Li-Ion
  • Weight: 2.2 kg

Price: 35,999

Both laptops have dual-core processors but with Hyper-Threading technology, they can process 4 threads at once making them pseudo-quad-core machines.

Those are quite affordable yet powerful machines. Personally, I would go for the B4105 for the power that Turbo Boost brings which can automatically boost the clock speed of the processor if only one core is in use. Of course, you would also get a Genuine OS with the B4105 package.

The only thing NEO has to prove now with the new laptops they are offering is the improvement in build quality compared to their older models. Is it already on par with the brands on the next tier of laptop hierarchy like ASUS and MSI?

    I can say NEO has good build quality. My 2009 Neo Basic laptop soldiers on till now. In fact I’m using it to make this comment. :)

  2. NEO laptops are easily be damage. i have bought one but after 1 year the battery already damage then next is the keyboard, some buttons did not functioning and next the flex of the LCD, it display a white background. after this experience i did not recommended to all my friends not to buy any NEO laptop products since this happened also to my co-worker. this laptops are cheap but in terms of durability i don’t think they meet the good standards.

  3. I have a the Neo B4103N, the laptop is more than a year old now and still functioning perfectly. The only downside is the battery which would not charge to full 100% normally. Other than that everything is fine with my Neo laptop.
