Reviews for the Kogan Agora PRO 12"

80% Kogan Agora PRO review
Source: PC Advisor English
This Kogan Agora PRO 'ultraportable' is basically a netbook – but a netbook with a difference. It looks smart, feels quite solid and runs the Ubuntu operating system with ease. Battery life really lets it down though. The Agora PRO has good storage, its 500GB hard disk significanty larger than any netbook and even many laptops. At its original advertised price of £229, it would be a bargain; but now it’s been raised to £289 it’s in the same territory as name-brand netbooks with decent battery life. Nevertheless, for its matt screen size with decent resolution, and its great ready-to-go Ubuntu operating system, it’s certainly worth tracking down.

SU2700: Entry level Single Core CPU with less power saving states as the Core line and because of the slow clock rate (1.3 GHz) not very fast. Directly soldered to the mainboard and therefore for thin and light laptops (CULV class). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.6":

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.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Kogan: Kogan Technologies is a local Australian manufacturer of displays and laptops without considerable market share outside of Australia.


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