Averatec AV3715-EH1

 

Averatec has built a successful brand in the value laptop space, even among big-name vendors like Dell and HP. Now comes its latest, the AV3715-EH1, a pleasantly slim laptop—ideal for daily commuters, home roamers, and campus crusaders. It's got a...

Nice design. 80GB hard drive. Built-in DVD burner. Light weight

Poor software bundle. Not enough battery life

The lightweight design should impress your peers, and the price is affordable.

Review: Averatec 3700 Laptop

 

When looking for a laptop you really have one major question to answer. Do you want power or do you want portability? Averantec's line of 13″ laptops lean more toward the portability, but they also offer enough power to watch movies and other simple...

Averatec 3715 notebook review

 

Averatec is essentially an American notebook manufacturer that is backed by Taiwanese money and know-how. The premise behind this partnership is to being a range of machines that are not only attractive to look at but also affordable. The 3715 costs a...

Light, cheap, attractive

Poor battery, average screen

A reasonably specified machine perfect for getting the job done on the move

I love this notebook

 

I,ve had this notebook for 6 months and I have to say that I am extremely happy with my purchase. I got it only for bringing backa nd forth to class with me, so I didn't need a powerhouse, that bein said, it still could be a little faster. The wireless...

Light, cheap, small, does everything I need it to

Could be faster, wireless isnt the greatest, no upgrade slots on bas, must crack open case to do anything

Great Service!

 

I loved the service I got from Averatec when I called their tech center. Their tech was curtious and was actually in North America!

Great Service

A little slow of a processor

Consumer review by:

Great Notebook

 

I think people are too negative about this company's service. I found the call center easy to deal with and I got through the queue in less than 2 mintues.

Lightweight, durable, great service (24 hours and toll free) ; I like the white color. It sets my unit apart from many of the other laptops out there

A little slow but not noticable when surfing online or doing word processing

Wolf in sheep's clothing

 

Dell is a nightmare these days, too. Probably, I'll buy a Toshiba, Sony, or Apple once I'm done with my dissertation (and can afford another laptop) and my desperate need for the Averatec is finally over.

Cheap. looks nice, has many functions

Hard drive problem at 9 months. I had to pay ~$300 to have it backed-up and restored by bxst_bxy. Averatec does not back up their dysfunctional hard drives. Then, after spending houres re-installing software and renaming old files (all the file names...

HOrrible quality company

 

my Averatec is an older one and it has been nothing but problems, my friend recently purchased one and had the same problem, the CD Drive is not recognized on the BIOS and causes the BIOS to freeze. spend a few more bucks on a better company like...

non

Slow boot time, BIOS lag, CD Drive not recognised, Poor customer support, and low quality

Consumer review by:

Great

 

Overall a great product. It is great for you business men out there on the go with its light 4lb weight. A great price too compared to the competition in this weight category. Although not for gaming, it runs AOE2 online also which my previous laptop...

I don't know what y'all are smoking but this thing runs great. It has run quite cool for me as things go for AMD and not the intel laptop I had before

There are the few issues that they don't send you the back-up CD and the graphics aren't for gaming

Consumer review by:

Shady business dealings...

 

I had issue with the video and the card reader and when I called Averatec, they said I needed to pay to ship it to them for service over the next 10 days. Then I get my same notebook reloaded with the orginial image. A lot of good when I have a card...

It is a small and inexpensive unit... but you get what you pay for

System does not come with recovery cd but is susppose to have trail backup partition on the harddrive which doesn't work 100
