Reviews for the Olive Zipbook X107H
The Olive Zipbook is India's first netbook to have a built-in high-speed internet modem. Its specifications are comparable to that of a two-generation-old netbook with an older Atom N270 processor, 1GB RAM and 160GB hard drive. Not to say that the newer generation hardware makes a huge difference in performance, but at least it could have served up better battery life figures. Pre-loaded with Windows XP, the Zipbook is zippy enough to do basic tasks like surfing the net, work with office suites or watch movies in standard definition. HD (720p) movies on the other hand tend to choke, as expected.

At an MRP of Rs. 20,999, there is a slight premium, but that is warranted as the in built 3G modem is about Rs. 3,500 today. Performance-wise we had no issues browsing and “MS officing”, also battery wise this product is right up there. On normal usage we got 8 hours and 33 minutes but with the back up to be precise. We like this product for the simple addition of the in built modem, and the fact that the other areas of performance can stand up to the big foreign brands.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
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).
Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors.» 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.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
Olive: Indian company, which focusses on mobile phones and offers an own laptop brand.
70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
