NEC Versa S970 (Core 2 Duo T7300)

 

The design is an understated black and silver that is trim and compact

Good security features, Powerful, Low power consumption

Not the best screen

Weighing in at 2.3kg, this is a reasonably light machine, largely due to the use of a 14.1-inch panel, which offers plenty of space for viewing documents side-by-side. The screen has a standard TFT finish, so isn't the brightest panel available, but we...

NEC targets the budget market with this business orientated notebook. But is it a case of you get what you pay for?

Overall this is a solid, if unspectacular, specification. A 2.0GHz dual-core CPU is well up to any challenges put to it, and a 120GB hard drive is ample enough. However, for running Windows Vista Business the 1GB of RAM will be a limiting factor,...

NEC Versa S970 M21T0 review

 

NEC's Versa S970 is a laptop that's squarely aimed at business users. Its big advantage over its competitors is its hardware encryption, which keeps data far more secure than the software encryption found on other laptops.

NEC Versa S970 business laptop

 

The NEC Versa S970 is a smart-looking laptop that's slim and lightweight enough to be easily portable.

Although the NEC Versa S970 is reasonably priced. It's let down by the quality of its screen and the lack of case protection. Neither is it particularly easy to use due to the size of its trackpad and buttons. However, the NEC Versa S970 is easily...

Since losing the personal records of some 25 million child-benefit claimants, the Government's data-security policy has come under intense scrutiny. Every tiny transgression now warrants a newspaper headline and every stolen hard disk or laptop is...

With a fully encrypted hard disk, this secure business machine would be an ideal choice for HM Revenue staff.

Who knew a Tablet Could Do It All?

 

Nonetheless, I would recommend this if you want to have it all! With an HDMI output I use this with XBMC to display all my videos in a great UI.

320 GB Hard Drive - I can pretty much use this as a storage for all my content, light gaming, movies, videos, music ; The IPS screen is really vivid and bright. I find it really clear for me when I want to read articles online or just watch a video ;...

With a 1.5 GHz Atom Dual Core I do wish that I could upgrade the RAM and boost the performance a bit ; You still can't do heavy gaming on this device, but why would you need to? It's powerful enough to play all my casual games ; I really wish I could...

Great until it breaks.

 

Great speed for a tablet ; 2GB RAM is good enough for most operations ; 320 GB storage is amazing for a tablet ; Touch input operates great, until it breaks

Power input on tablet became insensitive until it was unable to be charged. I had it serviced for this ; Later on, the screen became insensitive in certain regions/entire rows/columns of the screen, followed by the power input becoming insensitive...

Skytex Windows 7 Tablet PC

 

Bought this unit on the positive reviews I had read elsewhere and was not disappointed. I've had this unit for only about 2 weeks, and I really like this little tablet. It is a fully functioning PC without the limitations of most other tablets. The...

Not loaded with a lot of bloatware ; Very responsive to touch input ; Impressive speed for a tablet ; Screen very readable in bright light ; Does good job converting handwritten input to text ; 2 USB ports and one micro SD port provide external input ;...

Webcam located in upper right corner - should be more centrally located ; On my particular unit, the webcam was not always recognized by Windows. Some days it would work, some days not ; Battery life 3-4 hours could be better, but is to be expected...
