Reviews for the Averatec N2740TD1E-1

76% Averatec N2740TD1E-1
Source: Computer Shopper English
Sometimes, the Atom processor of a typical netbook just won’t cut it, but tossing a $1,500 ultraportable laptop into the bag you schlep around all day might be daunting for those with rough-and-tumble commutes. Enter the Averatec N2740TD1E-1 ("N2740," for short). Its Centrino 2 platform delivers the performance you would expect from a current notebook, but for a price—just $699—that’s closer to that of a top-end netbook. An affordable, compact machine with more performance and features than a netbook, the N2740 is a major value—if you don’t stray far from an AC outlet.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
T3400: Merom based entry-level Pentium Dual-Core processor with some reduced power saving functions compared to Core 2 Duo CPUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
12.1":

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.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
