Reviews for the Averatec N3440

60% Averatec N3440TH1E-1 13.3-inch Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Avertec's N3400 is the company's most recent ultraportable laptop and the 13.3-inch, 1-inch thick body has a very attractice appearance with its metal accents. Performance is above what many low cost ultraportables offer but it sacrifices the battery life. Inclusion of the external USB burner drive is also a nice touch for travelers who might want to load software or watch a movie. The only real problem is that since its release, the Intel CULV platform has been released with many low cost highly portable systems that battery life on the order of three times what the N3400 can provide.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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.


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.


1.5 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
