Reviews for the PeeWee PC Pivot Tablet

55% PeeWee Pivot Tablet Laptop
Source: Computer Shopper English
Parents seeking to introduce their youngsters to the world of personal computers may be lured into the Disney-themed PeeWee PC Pivot Tablet Laptop. (This model is not to be confused with the Disney Netpal netbook, which is also newly available.) PeeWee PC’s 8.9-inch Pivot Tablet Laptop combines typical netbook features with preloaded age-targeted software (Pre-K, Early Elementary, or Upper Elementary), parental controls, and a tablet interface. The parental controls and educational programs don’t quite make up for the erratic performance and hefty price of this kid-themed netbook.

Comment

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).


N270:

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.

8.9": This is a very small format, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny 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 very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.3 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


PeeWee PC: Peewee is an US-American manufacturer of special laptops for children, founded 2003.


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