Reviews for the Averatec 3715
Source: Bios Magazine
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.

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.
