Reviews for the Zepto Notus A12

88% Review Zepto Notus A12 Subnotebook | Notebookcheck
South wind. Although Zepto's Notus A12 is not light enough to fly, it is certainly lighter than many other notebooks, with only 1.37 kilogram. It is also well equipped, with Bluetooth 2.0, Draft-N-WLAN up to 300MBit/s, 6.5 millimeter thin 12.1" display with LED back light, TPM module for encryption, flat magnesium case and a battery that keeps it running for quite a while.

12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.

1.373 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
