Reviews for the Zoostorm Fizzbook Spin

80% Zoostorm Fizzbook Spin
Source: English version

A few months ago we looked at the first Zoostorm Fizzbook, a mini-notebook designed for children. While it was the same size and contained the same components as similar computers from Acer and Asus, the Fizzbook was distinguished by its large carrying handle, boldly coloured case and sturdy design. Overall, the Fizzbook Spin is a great computer for kids, although given the price it may be a better choice for use by teachers than by pupils.

Source: Techradar English version
Zoostorm's Fizzbook range grew out of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) initiative. The Fizzbook Go was the first machine, and its portability, usability and ruggedness impressed us. The Spin builds on the Go's strengths, while also including touchscreen usability, an Intel Atom N270 CPU, Wi-Fi and an SD card slot. While the Fizzbook Spin is designed for little people, it is big in its ambitions, and Zoostorm has created a usable educational tool which will enhance any child's classroom experience.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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.

Large smartphones and a few small tablets are available for this display size. Unlike most smartphones, you can see more on the screen, more details and use larger resolutions. Such formats are better for people with defective vision. However, such devices are no longer easy to fit in a pocket, and they are probably not quite light either.

80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
