10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it 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. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.642 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Archos: Archos is a French consumer electronics company that was established in 1988. The company manufactures portable media players and portable storage devices.

The first laptop reviews appeared in 2008/2009. The global market share of Archos laptops is quite limited.


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