Reviews for the Zoostorm Fizzbook Bang
Will this tough education netbook do it for the kids? After the success of the Fizzbook Go and Spin, PC Nextday has returned with a new Fizzbook netbook called the Bang (£299 inc. VAT). Like its predecessors, the Bang is designed with children in mind and proves itself a capable and suitable machine for six to 14-year-olds. Ever since the Zoostorm Fizzbook Go appeared on our radar, we've been impressed by the Fizzbook range – and the Bang continues to enhance this reputation. Apart from its weight, this netbook is perfect as a child's first machine and will no doubt enhance their educational experience, as well as help to make sure they grow up with a good knowledge of computing.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).
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 display diagonal is quite small for tablets.
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 big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
