Reviews for the Averatec 3715

Averatec 3715-EH1
Source: Bios Magazine English
With a refreshing new design (iBook anyone?), Averatec’s 3700 series has a unique white shell. And at just 1.9kg this ultra-lightweight laptop could be an ideal system for travel, school, as well as work, as long as you don’t throw CPU-intensive programs at it or work too long untethered from a mains adapter. Better suited to those on a budget, the 3715-EH1 offers a respectable range of hardware features in a highly portable casing. You’ll either love or hate the styling (we weren’t fans), but the price might be enough to attract you if your needs are basic (Web browsing, managing e-mail etc). In addition to the disappointing battery life we found that the working range of the wireless adapter was below average. Power users looking for an ultra-portable laptop who can manage to spend a little more on customisation options will find much specified and powerful options from the likes of Dell and Sony.

AMD Mobile Sempron: 2800+ to 3000+ mobile Athlon 64 with reduced level 2 Cache; The rating is not comparable with Athlon 64 Rating. A 3000+ Athlon 64 is faster than a 3000+ Sempron. There is no 64 bit support.
Especially: Sempron 2100+, socket S1, 9 Watt TDP, 1 GHz


3000+: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
