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.
