Reviews for the Elonex SlimNote
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.

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.
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).

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.
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.
