Reviews for the ASRock G22

60% ASRock G22
Source: Digital Versus English version
Optical drives are often found in ultra-portable laptops, but until now, the vast majority of netbooks have done without them.  That hasn't stopped ASRock including a combined Blu-ray reader/DVD writer in its G22. ASRock's G22 has made quite the entrance into the world of netbooks. Almost as well-rounded as an ultra-portable laptop, it's perfect for anybody who wants as many features as possible for the lowest possible price. Unfortunately, though, the battery can't keep up and it's pretty substantial, making it less portable than some of its rivals.

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.

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.

2.6 kg:

In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.

ASRock: A 2002 founded subenterprise of Asus, which markets an own brand worldwide.

60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
