Reviews for the Averatec 4155

Averatec 4155
Source: Bios Magazine English
Fancy a dark blue laptop, widescreen display, full-size keyboard and AveraBrite screen technology for just £799? Hell yeah! Averatec has added to its range of stylish, colour-coordinated, slimline laptops with the 13.3-inch widescreen 4155. It has a striking dark blue cover but in stark contrast, the interior is brilliant white. The design, we’re sorry to say, is a little childish and certainly lacks the chic appeal of other ultra-portables, especially those from Apple and Sony. Thin & light widescreen laptop, but it lacks power under the hood.

As with the 1050 model, Averatec's new 4155 notebook has clearly been influenced by the Apple design team. The £799 price tag suggests it's not going to generate a benchmark meltdown, but hats off to Averatec for creating a stylish, portable laptop. Inside the reasonably light 2kg chassis is an AMD Turion 64 Mobile MT-30 processor that runs at 1.6GHz and has 1MB of L2 cache. Partnered by 512MB of PC2700 DDR333 Ram, it made for an overall Sysmark 2004 SE score of 119 and a result of 1,141 in PCmark05.

AMD Turion 64: This is a derivative of the Athlon 64 with SSE3 with nx storage protection, 32 and 64 bit support, integrated memory controller for PC3200 memory, mode for low capacity, HT800 and 2 variants ML with 35 Watt and MB with 25 Watt consumption. Regarding the consumption MT might be very similar to a Pentium M. The speed is moderate and approximately as fast as an Pentium M with equivalent clock speed.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display 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.


2 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.
