As my first post in this category, I’m featuring ’PHOENIX’, my very first laptop computer. (I’m supposed to name it ’STORM’ since the night i bought the laptop, it was really raining hard with blistering winds hehe :)).

Bought “Phoenix” 7 weeks ago..well, yeah i don’t own this pink gurly laptop..(due to tight budget huh!!) I’m thinking of buying a laptop skin soon for a more fashionable look. It’s not that super computer but i can say it’s specs is not that outdated..


Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor T2050
(1MB L2 Cache, 1.73GHz, 533MHz FSB)
Intel® 945GM Chipset

  • DVDRW Supermulti
  • 3x USB 2.0
  • 3-in-1 Card Reader
  • 512MB DDR2 Memory (upgradable up to 2GB yehey!)
  • 80GB SATA Hard Disk Drive, 14.1″ Widescreen WXGA TFT Display
  • Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950
  • Integrated Web Camera, Built-in Mic & Speaker
  • 10/100/1000 Mbps LAN (for DSL/Broadband)
  • Integrated 56k Modem (dial up)
  • Intel® ProWireless 3945 a/b/g (Yeah Wi-Fi ready)
  • 6-cell Lithium Ion Battery
  • 2.5kg (Kinda heavy but tolerable)

I’m loving it so far, it never let me down, even during those heavy downloads that i have to leave it ON overnight. The built in Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950, which won’t really run heavy 3D, is just more than good enough for me, since i don’t really use phoenix for gaming (well, yeah yeah except for those occasional SIMS 2 and Age of Mythology games hehe). I tried installing age of empire III, but failed, I guess due to some incompatibilities.

It has a host of connectivity options like WI-FI, USB 2.0 so almost all the portability bases are covered.

The LCD screen is good, but sometimes it’s hard to see the display at certain angles, so I need to adjust the monitor angle and my position to get a better view.

Package contains: NEO laptop, NEO Laptop bag, Driver CD (don’t ever lose it!), NERO OEM version and Powerlink PowerDVD CD.

Price: Approximately PHP35,000.00 (as of May 2007)


It’s really hard to find a review for this brand, since i think these laptops are not yet internationally released.

    Hi nika.. thanks for your comment..
    well as i know, some models under the NEO brand got some bad feedbacks, this model was recommended by the shop owner from where I bought it so I am quite confident with this one.. you can check my post about the T3 review of the same NEO model for added information.

    I’m thinking of getting one as well but most are still out of my student allowance’s budget. Haha. Actually I’m scared of getting NEO because most of my friends who have their own lappies say its not a good brand. I overheard some shop technicians talk bad bout it as well when I passed by their shop where NEO was one of the products. O.o Hopefully you’ll give us an updte on how its doing so far after a few months again. :)
