Low budget laptop
Display and Design
The HCL Me Icon AE2V0032-I 1065 arrives with a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit display with a WXGA resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The outfit carries a grey hairline brush finish that looks extremely posh giving it a sense of metal. It has a weight of 2.4kg.
Processor and OS
Doing the duty under the hood is a 2.2GHz Intel Core i3 processor belonging to the 2nd generation family and loaded on the HM76 Express chipset. It is supported by a mere 2GB DDR3 RAM along with 2 user accessible memory slots which is normal in a low range notebook. Due to the lack of any external support, the computer relies on inbuilt Intel HD 3000 GPU for better handling of rich videos and games. It comes preloaded with DOS.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The HCL Me Icon AE2V0032-I 1065 impresses with a 1.3MP webcam which is capable of providing great high resolution video calling experience. It accounts for the storage demands of the user with a standard 500GB SATA hard disk. It even has a slim SuperMulti SATA DVD RW Drive that can be used for streaming and loading data on disks. It is equipped with dual stereo speakers delivering HD Audio solution.
Battery and Connectivity
The HCL Me Icon AE2V0032-I 1065 is fuelled by a 6 cell Li-ion battery that claims to run continuously for a maximum period of 5 hours which is really surprising in a low range gadget. On the connectivity front, it supports Gigabit Ethernet, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, 2 USB 3.0 slots, 1 USB 2.0 port, HDMI out, digital media reader and 9-in-1 card reader.
The HCL Me Icon AE2V0032-I 1065 is a low range laptop that has been built with special focus towards meeting your online requirements proficiently. It lacks a good RAM to support powerful multitasking needs but impresses with a durable battery backup and a fast optical drive. The support for a quality webcam and Gigabit Ethernet make it a good netbook.
