Reviews for the Averatec 2260

70% Averatec AV2260-EH1
Source: PC World English
Despite a pleasing design and a reasonable weight, its poor keyboard and lack of upgradability hold this model back. The AV2260-EH1 model of the Averatec 2200 Series has all the earmarks of a good budget ultraportable: a $950 price (as of 6/26/2006), 3-hour battery life, a pleasing 12.1-inch wide screen, and a 4.2-pound weight. As appealing as this package was, the 2200's cheap-feeling keyboard and non-upgradable design turned me off--in spite of its ultralow cost. The AV2260-EH1 has a sleek, black lid and bottom, which contrast nicely with the silver upper casing.

The Averatec 2260-EK1 is an affordably priced notebook with sleek lines and a nice 12.1-inch widescreen display. Its dual-layer DVD burner is a nice perk for the price, but the poor battery life makes this system less than ideal for anything but the shortest of road trips. Weighing in at 4.2-pounds, the 1.4-inch–thick 2260 is quite easy to tote around. The exterior casing has an attractive black matte finish with silver trim. The inside is all silver, including the full-sized keyboard, which was responsive and roomy. The scrolling touchpad maintains the same aspect ratio as the display and supports four-way scrolling. The mouse buttons were intermittently sluggish, requiring several clicks to get the job done.

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.

2.1 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
