The Japanese based electronics firm Epson have been in the business for decades and yet as far as the company’s laptops go, we do not really get to see much of what’s going on and that seems to be a shame because this latest laptop the Endeavor NY2300S looks to be a great addition to the market. This version of the Endeavor NY2300S has a fourteen inch screen, Intel Core processor and runs Windows 8, so there is a lot going for this smart looking laptop, that is probably being aimed at the student or home market, but it depends on the buyer’s requirements so it could quite easily fit into the business environment too.
Enough of all that let us just take a closer look at what this new Endeavor NY2300S has on offer, it comes with the 14 inch screen offering Vivid LCD WXGA glare type with LED backlight and a 1366 × 768 of pixel resolutions. This laptop will be running the latest Microsoft Windows 8 64 bit operating system and powered by either an Intel Celeron Processor B830 (1.8 GHz) or the Core i5-3210M processor (2.5 GHz). There is support from the Mobile Intel HM76 Express Chipset while graphics and video comes from the Intel HD Graphics card with built-in 3D graphic feature. The Internal memory starts at 2.0 GB and goes up to 4.0 GB of PC3-12800 DDR3 1600MHz SDRAM and there is a choice of either a 320 GB or a 500 GB 2.5-inch hard disk drive (HDD) Serial ATA 300MB at 5400rpm.
As for networking there is the IEEE 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN, Bluetooth 4.0 and the 1000 Base-T/100 Base-TX/10 Base-T Ethernet LAN. While other features include the two standard USB 2.0 ports, two fast connecting USB 3.0 ports, Mini D-SUB15 pin & HDMI 19 pin display ports and a handy SD memory card. As for the size of the Endeavor NY2300S, it measures 350 mm (W) × 235 mm (D) × 32 mm to 38 mm (H) and weighs in at two kilos with the Lithium-ion 11.1V 4400mAh battery pack that Epson says will be good for around six to seven hours of power.
Epson have put a starting price of around $625 on the Endeavor NY2300S, which for a fourteen inch laptop running Windows 8 OS is not a bad price.
