The Japanese based Kouziro Frontier has come up with another new laptop, initially this is destined for the home market, but who knows there is always plenty of room for a good laptop in other markets, so what does this new FRNX516 / D NX Series high spec model have to offer us? We it is a 15.6 inch design with Intel Core i5 processing power, graphics and chipset. To be fair here, there is little to choose from when it comes to these Japanese brands, they all seem to carry the same kit, it is merely the name and style of casing that is different, but let us give the FRNX516 / D a chance and so we will take a closer look.
The FRNX516 / D has a 15.6 inch screen with a wide LCD Glossy and LED backlight display offering a 1366 x 768 of pixel resolutions and it has a handy built in web camera too. This machine will be running the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (SP1) operating system and will be powered by the Intel Core i5-3210M processor with 2.50 GHz 3 MB cache, supporting the Mobile Intel HM76 Express Chipset and video graphics coming from the Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 1696 MB integrated in CPU.
There is 4 GB of PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM SODIMM and a 500 GB Serial-ATA hard disk drive (HDD) for storage purposes. Getting onto the internet is easy with the 1000 BASE-T/100 BASE-TX/10 BASE-T Ethernet LAN and the IEEE 802.11 b / g / n wireless LAN. Other features include two fast connecting USB 3.0 ports, a single standard style USB 2.0 port, HDMI (RJ45) out, output for mini D-Sub and there is always a use for a good Multi Card Reader.
As for the measurements this laptop is 375 mm (W) x 250 mm (D) x 15 mm to 35 mm (H) and weighs in at a reasonable 2.4 kilos but that is with the lithium-ion battery in place that Kouziro Frontier claim should be good for up to 4.3 hours of power. Kouziro Frontier have priced the FRNX516 / D to start from around $620
