Reviews for the ASRock G22

60% ASRock G22
Source: Digital Versus English
Optical drives are often found in ultra-portable laptops, but until now, the vast majority of netbooks have done without them.  That hasn't stopped ASRock including a combined Blu-ray reader/DVD writer in its G22. ASRock's G22 has made quite the entrance into the world of netbooks. Almost as well-rounded as an ultra-portable laptop, it's perfect for anybody who wants as many features as possible for the lowest possible price. Unfortunately, though, the battery can't keep up and it's pretty substantial, making it less portable than some of its rivals.

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.


330: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


ASRock: A 2002 founded subenterprise of Asus, which markets an own brand worldwide.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
