Reviews for the Elonex SlimNote

60% Elonex SlimNote review
Source: Techradar English
Not quite a netbook and not quite a laptop, the SlimNote is a bit of both worlds. When a netbook's too small and a standard notebook too heavy, you may be looking for the Elonex SlimNote, which aims to bring comfortable surfing to the budget netbook market. The increased power means the VIA Nano has become the processor chip of choice in larger 'netbook' style notebooks in the 11" and 12" categories, such as the Samsung N20 and now the Elonex SlimNote.

Comment

VIA S3G UniChrome Pro II: The S3 Graphics UniChrome Pro II is a DirectX 7 (without T&L) onboard graphics solution (shared memory) of VIA for laptops with VIA C7-M CPU and VX700 North-Bridge, which is intended for office applications and hardly suited for 3D games. There is no Aero support.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


VIA Nano: The Nano is the successor of the outaged VIA C7 and the direct competitor of the Intel Atom. In contrast to the Atom the Nano is able to perform orders by "out-of-order" (re-sort itself e.g. like the Celeron M series). Fruther it can accomplish 3 orders by clock (Core about 4, Atom 2). By the C6 state, the processor should save much energy in the idle mode and therefore only needs 0.1-0.5 Watts (TDP 5-25 Watts).


U2500: » 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 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Elonex: The company, which has been founded in 1986 in UK, creates computers and IT services. The market shares are very low, especially outside of UK.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
