Reviews for the Archos 70b

40% Archos 70b Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
Amazon is currently selling the Archos 70b for $179 and, at this price, it seems tempting. However, there are a number of flaws that keep us from recommending this device. The most glaring deficiencies are the maddeningly sluggish accelerometer, mediocre screen and short battery life. At this price, your money is better spent on either the Kindle Fire or the Nook Tablet, which are both available for just a few dollars more. Or wait for the rumored Asus Nexus tablet, which promises to pack Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3 chip for $199.

60% Archos 70b review

The diminuitive Archos 70b internet tablet is a mixed bag. We appreciated the look and feel of the device, as well as the Android Honeycomb operating system and battery life. But we just couldn’t stop ourselves being slightly underwhelmed by the performance – not to mention the troubles we experience with high definition video. Still, the inclusion of the Android Market means there’s no shortage of apps to install and this adds value to the tablet. Given the size and the price of the Archos 70b it could be an attractive purchase for anyone regularly travelling or on a budget. However, due to its shortcomings performance-wise, we’d suggest this as a secondary device rather than a first choice machine.

The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny 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 very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.4 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.
