Averatec 10″ Netbook; How Thin is Thin?


Photo courtesy of EngadgetThe Averatec N1200 is the latest and (touted as) thinnest netbook out there. It’s thin but it’s not the lightest.  At 2.2lbs, it matches the weight of Acer’s Aspire netbook.  But it is thin.  I measures at less than 1 inch thick and you can get up to six hours of battery life using the extended battery model.  Up to three hours with the standard battery.   This thin netbook boasts a 1.66 GHz Atom N450 processor, 1.3 megapixel webcam, 160 GB hard drive and standard 1GB DDR2 memory (which can be expanded to 2GB.  Colors are limited to silver or black. It is also retailing later this month at Best Buy and Tiger Direct for a reported $330.00.

    It should be noted that Averatec turns out shoddy junk. Avoid at all costs.

    I disagree with Bob I had an Averatec laptop for 2 years and it was rock solid in terms of dependability.

    I’ve owned 2 Averatech laptops. They are not the highest quality laptops but are well priced. I never had any problems with defects or malfunctions. They were just not high end machines. But both ran perfect for my laptop cycle (about a year), then they were sold/passed on, and ran for much longer. Tho true not the top, I would not call them Junk.
