There seems to be a very small gap between the LCD and keyboard when closed, which worries me somewhat. As mentioned before, the seems plenty quick and snappy for a variety of tasks, especially for a compact notebook. A firm push on the back of the LCD will cause ripples to appear, and the keyboard is not super-stiff. The 3 USB 2. The is a great looking notebook. Battery life is impressive, especially at this price point. For low load work like typing and web-browsing, the notebook stayed very cool except a little warmth on the right side of the palm rest.

Time to calculate Pi to 2 million digits: The 3 USB 2. A firm push on the back of the LCD will cause ripples to appear, and the keyboard is not super-stiff. Perhaps a little better than most small notebooks.

It gets commendably bright, and has good contrast and even backlighting. At this price, a spare battery could double the battery life and still keep the price below the competition.
The only key that is too small is the right shift key.
Included sleeve wise to use. It has a full feature set at averagec great price, and it looks outstanding. The bottom was warmer than the top palm rest area.

The keyboard sounds like a desktop keyboard. Also, there is no latch. The speakers definitely impressed me. When open, the notebook is clean and simple.

The has a fairly large vent and an intelligent fan for keeping the CPU cool. To give some numerical comparison to other notebooks, I ran the Averateec Pi Benchmark. It is surprisingly cool and quiet under most conditions, and battery life, while not excellent, wireldss very good. It has an even, thin bezel around the screen, which looks very nice compared to the thick, space wasting bezels on so many notebooks.
Aside from the standard array of ports, Averatec included a mini firewire port and a 4-in-1 multi card reader. Build quality is the usual fairly sturdy with a bit of flex here and there. It has an almost perfect layout and makes good use of the limited space. Literally using it on a lap might make things heat up more because the air intake might be blocked.
However, when it switches speeds, it revs up to full speed for a second, which is a bit annoying. But because they sound good even though they point directly down from the rear of the notebook!
There is some flex when you mash the keys, which is something I only notice if I purposefully mash the keys. There seems to be a very small gap between the LCD and keyboard when closed, which worries me somewhat. I greatly prefer this design to some notebooks which seem as if their only goal was to be thin, at the expense of a flimsy feel, wasted space like a thick bezel around the screenand a larger footprint.

Do buyers really only look at the thickness spec when searching for a small notebook? It ran through over 10 different fan speeds, ranging from inaudible to annoyingly loud. Compared to the previous generation, it is just a bit thicker, but has a significantly smaller footprint.
