4 out of 5 eggs best price point behind the hardware curve 10/03/2013

This review is from: Avatar Tellus Intel Core i3 4GB 500GB HDD+32GB SSD 14" Ultrabook Coffee Brown/Black (AVIU-143A3)


* Good value.
* Generic non-proprietary power supply.
* Full sized ethernet, VGA, and HDMI ports.
* All reference hardware. No obviously weird components.
* Only McAfee was pre-installed. The initial system image is nearly clean, so I didn't bother to do a wipe and reinstall.


* Doesn't wake up when the lid is opened.
* No mult-touch gestures. Single-touch only.
* The case is plastic, not metallic like most ultrabooks.
* The display panel is old technology; it has a lower black level, viewing angle, and pixel response than I expected.

Other Thoughts:

This is a safe choice for a laptop that costs less than $500. Although it is missing some nearly standard features, you don't get that much more value at the next price point.

The SSD is not partitioned for Ready Boost, which is something that you should do manually.

I would buy this model again if I needed to replace it.
