Reviews for the Averatec 2575
Source: Comp Reviews
Averatec's Voya 2575 retains much of the same low cost as their previous laptops, but they have improved the overall quality of the design. It is certainly fairly large and heavier than most 12-inch laptops on the market but it provides a good overall experience. It just lacks many of the features one might expect to see in a modern notebook.

Since we reviewed the Averatec 2371 last year, the company has taken its laptops in a whole new direction. Gone are the cheap-looking plastic cases and rock-bottom prices; Though its performance is merely adequate, the ultraportable Averatec 2575 offers an attractive design and a decent feature set at a reasonable price.

The Averatec 12.1" ultraportable AV2575 notebook offers a great value at a price of $1,099. While it is heavier than other notebooks of this size, the build quality, keyboard, touchpad, and thermal performance is excellent. The one area that I could see some improvement on is battery life, which hopefully an extended battery would help with.

ATI Radeon Xpress X1270: Built in RS690T chipset and is based on an X700 graphics core (with less pipelines). It features no dedicated graphics memory but Vista Aero support.
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.
In 65nm produced dual-core processor based on the K8 core. Compareable performance to a 2.0 GHz Core Duo CPU with 1MB Level 2 Cache (Celeron Dual Core e.g.).

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.
