Reviews for the Averatec N3440

60% Averatec N3440TH1E-1 13.3-inch Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English version
Avertec's N3400 is the company's most recent ultraportable laptop and the 13.3-inch, 1-inch thick body has a very attractice appearance with its metal accents. Performance is above what many low cost ultraportables offer but it sacrifices the battery life. Inclusion of the external USB burner drive is also a nice touch for travelers who might want to load software or watch a movie. The only real problem is that since its release, the Intel CULV platform has been released with many low cost highly portable systems that battery life on the order of three times what the N3400 can provide.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
