This FRNX516S / D NX Series laptop just launched by the Japanese computer maker Kouziro Frontier is not entirely new. This is because it is a variation of the recently launched FRNX516 / D NX Series the main difference being between the two is that the newer version has a higher spec and could even be classed as an ultrabook if the manufacturer wanted to get into that end of the market. But this laptop still has the 15.6 inch display, is Intel Core powered and comes with a small solid state drive, these days it has to said that size matters and 180 GB of storage is not a great deal by anyone’s standards. Yet the FRNX516S / D NX Series does feature a good all around list of specifications and best of all it can be purchased for around $760, which has to be a bargain for such a laptop.
The FRNX516S / D has a medium size 15.6 inch screen in wide LCD Glossy with LED backlight and a 1366 x 768 of pixel resolutions. It will be running the Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium operating system 64 bit version with Service Pack 1 (SP1) applied and is powered by the Intel Core i5-3210M processor with 2.50 GHz and 3 MB cache, with support from the Mobile Intel HM76 Express Chipset and video graphics coming from the Intel HD Graphics 4000 card with 1696 MB. There is a 4 GB of PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM SODIMM available but this can be upgraded to 8 GB if required and there is a small and light 180 GB solid state drive (SSD) available for storage.
Networking is available through 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 the handy HDMI & mini D-Sub15 pin display out, two fast connecting USB 3.0 ports, a single standard style USB 2.0 port, built-in stereo (1.0W x 2) speaker system and the ever useful Multi-Card Reader. As for the size and weight of this laptop, it measures up at 375 mm (W) x 15 mm to 35 mm (H) x 250 mm (D) and weighs a manageable 2.4 Kilos even with the lithium-ion battery installed that Kouziro Frontier say will be able to offer the user up to 4.3 hours of power.
If and when Kouziro Frontier decides to launch the FRNX516S / D into the wider marketplace expect to see it with a starting price of around $760.
