Reviews for the Velocity Micro T30
Source: Comp Reviews
Velocity Micro's T30 Italia may offer much on the style front but it certainly lacks in the features and performance. Costing $999, it would be nice to at least see a dual core processor and a hard drive that is bigger than those found in netbooks. It is nice to see an external USB DVD burner come with the system but this certainly doesn't equate to the overall cost and performance differences between it and other ultrathin laptops available on the market.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
SU4100: Entry-level dual core processor for slim and light subnotebooks. Due to the Pentium name, the CPU may have less power saving features than Core 2 Duo processors.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
Velocity Micro: Velocity Micro was founded 1997 in USA and focusses on gaming computers for the American market.
40%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
