NEO Elan LD5HW, the budget 11.6-inch gaming notebook

Usually we associate a gaming notebook with those having 15.6-inch screens and above. For some though, portability is really important. Something they can easily slip inside a bag and just connect it to a big monitor when it’s time to play.


The NEO Elan LD5HW is a portable yet powerful notebook that you can count on for gaming on the go. It has an 11.6-inch HD screen and runs on Windows 8. It uses an Intel Core i5-3230M dual-core processor with 8GB RAM and 1TB worth of storage.


Dedicated graphics of choice on this notebook is the NVIDIA GeForce 650M with 2GB Video RAM. This is above mid-range class of mobile GPU that can let you play demanding games at medium settings.

The lid on the Elan LD5HW looks stylish with its textured rubbery surface. This notebook also supports charging of devices via USB without turning the machine on.


This unit may be small but sure has heft at 1.8kg. I also noticed a bit of heat on the exhaust vents on the side. Not the warm fuzzy feeling but uncomfortable heat so I guess packing a GPU on a small unit may not be that a good idea especially if you’re using it outside on the crazy temps we’re having at the moment.

Anyway, if small and powerful is your thing, the NEO Elan LD5HW retails for Php37,999 and is also available a 12 months installment 0% interest payment scheme. There’s also a Linux version which goes for Php34,999.

    neo should just become resellers lol… kulang nalang kunin na nila yung p370em eh (not that anyone here would and can pay $2000-3000 and above for a ridiculously powerful and heavy laptop).

    sana kumuha rin sila nung i7 variant.

    hahaha. . .another joke from Neo. . .

    Avoid this brand or else. . Hmmm

  • xprimer

    actuall there’s i7 from Neo. . .but the keyboard sucks as well as the overheating issue. . .

    • lunalorticum

      I’m talking about the i7 version of THIS very laptop. As unlike their (NEO’s) low end POS, Westerners get to customize these from resellers online then have it shipped at your doorstep.

      And if this overheats, then something was probably wrong with applying the thermal paste on the cpu lol.

      for example: (find the click to customize bar and go nuts 😀 ).

      Sana lang di sila sa Sager mismo bumili -_-

  • Lolz! Mag LENOVO na lang kayo or MSI gaming laptops kung ayaw nyo SUMAKIT ULO nyo sa NEO!! Pangit CUST.CARE at WARRTY Service nila!
    Tapos panay sablay na Toshiba HDD ang nilalagay nila na after 1yr. bumibigay na kagad! Thank me later!
