A good choice over the Sony TX series

 

I considered the Sony TX series but went with the Averatec. Very happy with the choice, saved lots of $$$$$ !

Excellent ultra portable for the price. Battery life is 3.5 to 4 hours, which I am satisfied with. Overall high qualiy construction

Touchpad with scroll bar is temperamental on occasion

Product Specifications

The small and feather-light stylish design is only one of the 1000 Series' best features! At a svelte 3.6 lbs. this little dynamo with its high resolution AveraBrite widescreen is light on the eyes, the backpack or briefcase, and most importantly the wallet. Just as you would expect from any AVERATEC notebook, it is also loaded with multimedia and connectivity features. A built-in high-speed wireless LAN with dual-antenna allows for super fast Internet multimedia streaming and downloading. A FireWire Port makes digital video recording right onto your notebook possible and the combination DVD+CD-RW allows you to transfer music, photos and other multimedia from your portable media and burn them to a CD, or watch your favorite DVD on the vivid 10.6" wide XGA screen.
