Reviews for the Elonex Webbook

80% Elonex Webbook review
Source: Techradar English
We've been struck with deja vu, surely this is from the wrong company? We know imitation is flattering but, my word, Asus must be simply blushing with this act of doppelgangery from Elonex with it's new Webbook. While Elonex has done nothing wrong as such with its 'webbook', it's hardly inspiring in its choice of design. Unfortunately, that's all that remains for netbooks, as the industry is stifling innovation on a technical level. If you can pick this up at a low enough price then it'll certainly be worthy of consideration over other models.

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.


10.0": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it 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. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 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.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
