Reviews for the Point of View Mobii
Point of View certainly surprised us with its Mobii ION mini netbook. We honestly didn't expect that much from a €339 netbook. We were quite surprised to see that Point of View was one of the first manufacturers to get an ION based netbook to the European market and to be quite competitive with the likes of Acer, Samsung, MSI or Asus. The only thing where Point of View can't compete with others is the fact that currently only few retailers/e-tailers have it in stock and your best bet is Alternate.de, which is not that bad as Alternate is surely one of the biggest European sellers.

The Mobii ION was recommended for its good looks (it comes in a number of bright colours), build quality and it stood tall against a number of gaming and HD video tests. 1080p HD playback was possible via the HDMI port and Call of Duty 4 managed 25fps at low resolutions. One of the few points against it was poor European availability and a small keyboard/display versus the larger Samsung N510. Check out the key review points after the break.

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.
Point of View: Point of View, established in the year 2000 focusses on graphics cards. We are based in Holland. However, the company includes Taiwan, China, France and USA. There is no laptop review known before 2009. Probably, the company entered the laptop market in 2009.
74.75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
