Averatec 4200 Review (pics, specs)


Averatec calls their 4200 series notebook "not too big, not too small...just perfect." For mobile users who want great portability but a more practical screen size and keyboard (and price!), this might be exactly correct. Following is a full review of...

Averatec 4200 AV4265-EH1 Review


Creamy-white laptop with midnight blue lid boasts just-right 13.3-inch widescreen.

Handsome case ; just-right screen size

Unimpressive battery life

Except for the outdated information regarding its two hot buttons, the AV4265-EH1's documentation (in the form of a preinstalled Acrobat manual) seems solid; it does a good job of walking users through upgrades, always a plus. But the contents page is...

Averatec 4200 AV4265-EH1AV4265


Unusual 13.3-inch wide screen sets this laptop apart.

This 13.3-inch wide screen offers striking looks and an appealing weight. I would wait until Averatec makes the AveraPlay media button fully functional again, though, before buying.

Stylish. Lightweight. Vivid screen. Large hard drive

Falls a bit short on performance. Weak speakers

A workhorse the Averatec AV4265-EH1 is not, but a lightweight portable system that can handle day-to-day tasks with aplomb it most definitely is.

Averatec 4200 13" Widescreen Notebook


Who says a widescreen Centrino notebook with a bright, glassy display weighing less than 5 lbs. has to cost $2,000 or more? Averatec has a way of bringing notebooks to market that cost far less than competing brands. While Averatec's very first...

Wow, only $1,199 list price for a slick looking 13.3" widescreen notebook that weighs less than 5 pounds?! Not only that, Averatec didn't scrimp on the internals: the latest Centrino chipset, a 1.6 GHz Pentium M processor, 512 megs of RAM and a DVD...
