Although the Novatech nTablet has a strong, responsive touch screen and a solid build, we can't recommend it over the likes of the Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab. The overall experience just isn't as satisfying and the many little quirks quickly add up. If the asking price was less we'd say it's a good budget option but if you're splashing out this much on a tablet, you might as well add a little extra and treat yourself to something better.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 3150: Integrated (shared memory) graphics card in the intel Atom N4xx CPUs. Minimally faster than an old GMA 950 and therefore not suited for 3D games or HD videos (only MPEG2 acceleration).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).

N455: Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated DDR3 memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.

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.

0.89 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.

Novatech: This British Computershop also sells laptops with its own brand. The marketshare is very low and there don't exist many laptop reviews for Novatech laptops.

55%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
