Reviews for the Averatec 2300
Source: Laptop Mag
The Averatec 2300 Series is a solid ultraportable at a very affordable price. Weighing only 4.1 pounds, it’s the lightest dual-core notebook here and is easy to carry. The angular, black metallic flake chassis is attractive. Averatec hasn’t stripped down the configuration to make it come in at under $1,000, either, delivering 1GB of RAM, a 100GB hard drive, an integrated dual-layer DVD burner, and Windows Media Center Edition (or Windows Vista Home Premium, depending on the build date).

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 / 6150 is an integrated graphics card of the NVIDIA nForce Go 430 MCP for AMD Turion notebooks. It doesn't have any integrated memory, but uses a part of the mainmemory (up to 128 MB) like the direct competitor Intel GMA 950. Therefore, the gaming performance is quite moderate and can only be used for elder games.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.
TL-50: In 90nm produced dual core processor with a low clock rate of 1.6 GHz. The TL-50 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
