If you're the kind of person who keeps a laptop or netbook around the house or office and uses it mostly for consuming web media (that is, not so much typing), you're exactly who the JooJoo is aiming for - it's a neat, lightweight device that has potential to do web browsing well, and if your work is in web apps then you'll be able to work from the JooJoo with just a keyboard and mouse. Don't expect it to replace any of your PCs, per se - it just might be nicer to use in certain situations where you're currently using a PC, like when you're catching up on the day's news or nosing through Hulu. Ultimately, the JooJoo is more like a litmus test for tablets: if you're tempted by a $500 (£306) device designed for web browsing, you should check out the JooJoo. The challenge will be for Fusion Garage to deliver a product that will not only carve out and establish the tablet market space, but also be able to hold on to it in case long-rumoured tablets from Apple or Microsoft come calling.

The JooJoo may be the cheaper option, but with the iPad's smoother operation, quicker performance, huge variety of apps and better media support, it's not the best value for money. Even if you only use the web browser, the iPad still remains our tablet of choice.

The JooJoo has great potential but there are far too many niggles to make it a truly useful tablet. Best avoided for now.

NVIDIA GeForce 9400M (G) / ION (LE): Integrated (shared Memory) graphics adapter. Built in in current MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air laptops and also used in the ION (LE) platform for netbooks. Also called GeForce 9400M G. Fastest available motherboard GPU (in 2009). Integrated PureVideo HD (VP3) video processor to decode HD videos with the GPU.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
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 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.
52.5%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
