Reviews for the Emtec Gdium Liberty 1000

40% Emtec Gdium Liberty 1000

This netbook is packed with unique features and an attractive Linux operating system, but it lacks in performance and endurance. Emtec deserves credit for creating a unique netbook with the purpose of sharing with others; however, based on the Gdium Liberty 1000’s performance, endurance, and limited storage space, this is not a machine we’d want to own, much less share. While the G-Linux operating system is compelling and its lack of a hard drive makes for a durable system, its almost unusable touchpad and hot temperatures make this $349 system even less attractive. Those looking for a solid and durable netbook with a compelling Linux OS should consider the HP Mini 1000 Mi, which starts at $249 and offers more stable performance and better ergonomics.

The screen diagonal is used for small 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.
