Reviews for the Emtec Gdium Liberty 1000

40% Emtec Gdium Liberty 1000
Source: Laptop Mag English
This netbook is packed with unique features and an attractive Linux operating system, but it lacks in performance and endurance. Emtec deserves credit for creating a unique netbook with the purpose of sharing with others; however, based on the Gdium Liberty 1000’s performance, endurance, and limited storage space, this is not a machine we’d want to own, much less share. While the G-Linux operating system is compelling and its lack of a hard drive makes for a durable system, its almost unusable touchpad and hot temperatures make this $349 system even less attractive. Those looking for a solid and durable netbook with a compelling Linux OS should consider the HP Mini 1000 Mi, which starts at $249 and offers more stable performance and better ergonomics.

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.


1.2 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.


Emtec: EMTEC is a French company that markets magnetic media products and other computer related consumables with headquarters in France. It has been founded 70 years ago. Until 2009, no laptop reviews have been available.


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