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.

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 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.


1.8 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.
