Averatec has just announced a new powerful ultraportable laptop to add to its current line up. The N2700 features a 12″ screen, and is powered by a Core 2 Duo T6400 2.0GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of ram, a 250GB hard drive, and a DVD/CD burner. It also has got a 1.3 megapixel camera, a 4 in 1 memory card and three USB ports as well as a IEEE 1394 port. But the best part about the new N2700 is its $699 price tag, which makes it not that much more than a netbook but so much more powerful. We’re excited to see more powerful ultraportables dropping in price. Granted the N2700 is a bit on the heavy side at 4lbs, but you cant beat the price. Check out more details in the press release below.
New Averatec 12-inch Notebook Features Intel Dual-Core Processor, 4GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive
Solid Performance, Sizable Storage, Value Priced & Feature-Packed
SANTA ANA, Calif., April 27, 2009 — TriGem USA today announced the expansion of its mobile computing line with a new 12-inch Averatec N2700 notebook, featuring a 2GHz Intel dual-core processor, 250GB hard drive, 4GB of memory, Microsoft Vista Home Premium and an 8X super-multi DVD optical drive. The notebook, which is currently shipping, is offered at an MSRP of $699.
“The N2700 notebook is an ideal solution for consumers looking for the sweet spot in terms of price, portability and performance,” said Henry Hewitt, vice president of sales at TriGem USA. “It’s larger and more powerful than a typical netbook computer and offers great portability over notebooks sporting 13-inch screens and larger.”
The Averatec N2700 features a super-slim design with a top-performing Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 2GHz processor. It has been designed to maximize performance by minimizing pre-installed software bundles of demo programs and trial software, often called “bloatware.”
The new Averatec notebook is ideal for professionals, college students and other mobile users who travel or need a very capable computer that is right-sized for either the briefcase or backpack. The notebook comes with 4GB RAM and the 64-bit edition of Windows Vista Home Premium, a higher-performing version of the Microsoft operating system. It features built-in 802.11b/g wireless connectivity along with 10/100/1000 Mb/s wired networking. In addition to the three high-speed USB 2.0 ports, the N2700 includes an IEEE 1384 port for connecting to camcorders, external hard drives and other high-speed firewire devices.
“We listened to our customers when we designed this new 12-inch notebook,” Hewitt said. “They wanted solid performance at a great value without excess in the way of ‘try-and-buy’ software add-ons. So we have delivered a ‘back-to-the-basics’ notebook with a very robust Intel dual-core processor, plenty of memory and a sizable hard drive for storing documents, photos, video and music.”
Averatec’s products are backed by a one-year limited warranty and one-year of technical support available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time.
