Reviews for the Averatec 2371

60% Averatec 2371
Source: Laptop Mag English
Go easy on your wallet--and your back--with this stylish dual-core ultraportable. The latest addition to Averatec's 2300 series of notebooks and its first Vista-based offering, the 2371 packs dual-core processing power and a robust assortment of components into an ultraportable form factor--all for less than $1,000. Just don't stray too far from an outlet; this system's battery life is short, even for a Vista machine. Clad in an attractive dark chocolate-brown chassis, the 2371 is thin and light enough for frequent travel (1.3 inches and 4.1 pounds). The 12.1-inch widescreen display has a 1280 x 800-pixel resolution and is treated with the AveraBrite coating, which helps produce a brighter picture and delivers good viewing angles. The glossy screen has a tendency to reflect bright ambient light, though.

The good: Reasonably priced; attractive dark brown finish; includes ExpressCard slot and FireWire port; excellent manual. The bad: Underpowered AMD CPU paired with only 1GB of RAM limits performance; unimpressive battery life; not customizable. The bottom line: For less than $1,000, the Averatec 2371 is an excellent value ultraportable for those who can look past its acceptable but subpar performance.

Comment

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-52:

In 90nm produced dual core processor with a low clock rate of 1.6 GHz. The TL-52 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display 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, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
