Averatec Trigem N1200

Averatec Trigem N1200Price as Reviewed: $349.99

Trigem doesn’t appear out with laptops all that often, and back it does, they’re usually bargain and stylish, but aloof absence the mark in one aspect or another. The company’s latest effort, the Averatec N1200, continues this pattern. While this $349 netbook sports a attractive aluminum lid and is appreciably lighter than the competition, its blah two-cell array aloof doesn’t cut the mustard. Don’t alike anticipate about affairs the N1200 after the six-cell array (bringing the amount to $379). Yet alike with that call there are added weaknesses that will account abounding netbook shoppers to pass.

Reminiscent of the HP Mini 5102, the Averatec N1200 has a brushed magnesium admixture lid that not alone repels fingerprints, but additionally makes the arrangement added asperous than the archetypal all-plastic netbook. It adds a blow of class, too, and we like the attenuate Averatec logo. In fact, the N1200 looks acknowledgment and sleeker than best systems in its class. The basal of the arrangement is a matte atramentous plastic, as is the keyboard.

Netbooks are accepted for their baby admeasurement and weight, but at 10.7 x 6.5 x 0.9 inches and 2.2 pounds the N1200 is thinner and lighter than most. Of course, this is partially due to the actuality that the agreement we activated has a two-cell battery—smaller than on best netbooks these days.

The bezel and keyboard accouter on the N1200—including the touchpad—are a bright black, which shows fingerprints adequately easily. Oddly, the N1200 has a webcam that sits on the larboard ancillary of the bezel instead of aloft the display, consistent in acutely awkward video chats. And we accept no abstraction why there needs to be a band to the appropriate of the keyboard that houses the ability button and two LEDs of Num Lock and Caps Lock. That’s a austere decay of space, and it abnormally impacts the accounting experience.
