Reviews for the Averatec 1000

Averatec 1000 Series
Source: Gadgetspeak English
I have seen several excellent small screen notebooks recently and this certainly does not buck the trend. 10.6inch screen but apart from that everything a bigger cousin might have. On removing it from the box the first thing you notice is the purple or crimson lid, regular readers will know I am not a fashion guru but I liked it. The keyboard and surrounds are a near white cream colour, perhaps a little bright after a heavy night but other than that quite pleasant. I exceeded to battery life claim of four hours in normal usage, albeit by only a few minutes, this included some substantial time on Internet connection and as it was doing the interminable Norton updates and disc scan this was more than satisfactory.

Da gab es eine Menge gemischter Gedanken ein Averatec Notebook zu kaufen. Jetzt bin ich ein Fan und würde dieses Notebook jedem empfehlen, der ein kleines Notebook sucht und der nicht viel bezahlen will. Dieses Notebook ist definitiv eine großartige billige Alternative zu Fujitsu und Sony ultraportable Notebooks. Hoffentlich wird Averatec in nicht zu ferner Zukunft weitere Verbesserungen seiner 10" Notebooks vornehmen. Positiv: billig und erschwinglich, 80GB Festplatte, Windows XP Professional, Akkulaufzeit, Multimedia Kartenleser, heller und scharfer Bildschirm; Negativ: 4200 rpm Festplatte, schelchte WIFI Signale vermutlich wegen Intel Karte, Touchpad, schwerer als andere 10.6" Notebooks, Gewicht könnte besser sein, nur eine Farbe verfügbar, kein Bluetooth, kein S-Video (obwohl das ganz normal für Notebook wäre) [übersetzt]

Comment

Intel Extreme Graphics 2: Intel Extreme Graphics 2 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Intel 852 / 855 GM, GME, GMV chipset for Centrino, Pentium 4 and Celeron based laptops. It is hardly suited for 3D-games. No Aero support.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


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


12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
