Reviews for the Elonex Websurfer

30% Elonex Websurfer Connect review
Source: Techradar English
Elonex's Websurfer Connect has a couple of nice features. Shame about the terrible ones. Adding to its netbook range, Elonex has released the Websurfer Connect. With its outdated chassis, usability and comfort are around two years behind the current standard, but a built-in VoIP phone has been included to make chatting over the web quick and easy. The Websurfer Connect is a poor netbook with a terrible user interface and sluggish performance. The VoIP phone redeems it somewhat, but certainly not enough. Please avoid.

  Has Elonex's Websurfer netbook cut more than just the price? Elonex is making something of comeback to the netbook market with the introduction of two new machines. The Elonex Websurfer is the smaller and cheaper of the two machines and is aimed at those on a tight budget. It's easy to dislike the Websurfer. It's old, clunky and outdated with performance to match. We therefore find it hard to recommend it to anyone.

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 C7-M: Current saving processors, however not as fast as a equivalent Pentium/AMD processor

C7-M-1200: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny 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 very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.65 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.

40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
