Reviews for the Hypersonic Avenger AG2
Source: Comp Reviews
One of the reasons that the Hypersonic Avenger AG2 is so affordable is that it is a system that has been out quite some time and is using older hardware. This does put it at a slight disadvantage in some respects, but it is still one of the least expensive 12-inch laptops on the market that isn't based on netbook components. For those looking for a very portable laptop but with full features, this may be the answer.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
The T9300 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and similar to the T9400 but with a lower FSB.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
Hypersonic: The 1996 founded company focusses hardware with strong performance. Up to 2009, no laptop reviews are known.
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
