NEC Versa S970 review


A highly portable business laptop

5 hour battery life ; Lightweight ; Powerful performance

Limited storage ; Low on features

For the money there's more than enough to keep the corporate user happy, but other consumers may be put off by the lack of features

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.

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...

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...
