Archos 10 Review

 

At first glance, the Archos 10 seems like a real bargain: it includes $100 worth of free software, and has a faster hard drive and boot time than many of its competitors, as well as better graphics performance. But for the same $399, many other 10-inch...

Robust entertainment software, Fast hard drive, Large touchpad

Very cramped keyboard, Short battery life, Dull design, Wi-Fi connection issues

Archos 10

 

Archos's first foray into netbooks is this aggressively priced model. A creative bundling package makes this "me-too" netbook a little more enticing.

Affordable; lots of useful preinstalled software; movies bundled into purchase price

Mediocre performance; cramped keyboard; short battery life; free media is very limited and requires credit-card information

Despite the disappointing media options, Archos still has the least-expensive netboook on the market. Most other systems start at $499 and offer minimal software, making this the model to beat in terms of price. As far as usability goes, however, the...

ARCHOS 10 Netbook

 

While it was slow to boot up, this netbook transferred files pretty quickly. The quality of its 10.2-inch screen ranked above average in both dark and bright settings. However, many consumers commented that they found the keys too flat, which made them...

Archos 10 review

 

Yes, it's a laptop from the portable media player manufacturer

Connectivity ; Strong plastics ; Bit Defender pre-installed

Terrible keyboard ; Sub-standard screen

A poor netbook by modern standards with not much about it to recommend

Archos 10 notebook review

 

The netbook market has pretty much saturated itself over the last year. With Archos better known for their internet media tablets, it is perhaps a surprise to see them step into the world of netbooks. Yes, they do sort of punt into the same territory,...

Trackpad is pretty good, matte screen good for outdoor use

Poor keyboard, poor battery life, price

The Archos 10 is punching above its weight alongside offerings from the likes of Asus and MSI, so there is little that appeal here

Archos Arnova 10

 

The Archos Arnova 10 is a budget Android tablet that cuts one too many corners.

Cheap

Poor touchscreen ; Poor display ; No Android Market

All the Arnova 10's ports and physical buttons are on its left edge. There's a 3.5mm headphone jack, USB and microUSB slots, a microSD slot and the power jack. There is a gap for an HDMI slot in its body work, as this tab uses the same basic design as...

Archos 10 review

 

We're starting to brace ourselves for Netbooks : Part Deux – an exciting sequel to last year's smash featuring the next generation of funky yet frugal technology. Archos, meanwhile, has just thrown this up. It's almost a spec-by-spec rendition of...

Archos pitches up at the netbook party: is it fashionably late or just in time to miss the fun?

A fun netbook with promising potential, but the asking price is a joke

Archos - Archos 10

 

For a company that tries hard to set the pace in its chosen field - media players - Archos's decision to launch a netbook now seems like an odd one. The market's pretty defined, the big ...

At the full retail price this is a disappointing, average netbook with poor battery life and a ragbag of free software. But seek out one of the retailers who's selling the version with the more capacious 6-cell battery for £100 less and - shazam! - it...

Archos 10.2 inch Netbook

 

Over the recent years Archos have produced a lot of interesting devices but not until now a notebook, here is their first offering a 10.2 inch Netbook and it of course comes with extras that others do not seem to provide.

It is certainly small and light enough to fit easy into a bag or case. It weights 1.28kilos and is 25.5x19x3cm. The left side has the Ethernet port (it also works fine on wireless) VGA port and two USB ports. The front has two 3.5mm sockets for...
