You’ve seen it photographed. You’ve seen it unboxed. Now it’s time for a detailed review of the Kohjinsha DZ, the first 10.1 inch netbook to feature two side-by-side displays. WOW-Pow has posted a 3-part video review that runs for over 20 minutes. Here are some of the highlights:
- The sliding mechanism for the display seems pretty solid
- You can operate the screens in extended or clone mode, but you can’t plug in an external display and use 3-screen mode
- The screen wobbles a bit because of the heavy display, but the swivel/hinge is pretty sturdy
- The 1.6GHz AMD Neo CPU gets a higher Windows 7 performance rating than a 2GHz Atom Z550
- Overall performance is pretty decent, but HD Flash video is a non-starter without Flash Player 10.1 beta
- Local HD video plays smoothly
- AMD’s power-saving software can underclock the CPU and GPU automatically when you unplug the power adapter
- 3D game Castle Wolfenstein Enemy Territory plays smoothly
You can check out all three parts of the review after the break.
Looks very cool, but I always say that. 😉
I wonder who owns the patent for a dual screens, or if there are a few patents that could be used or new patents made for different mechanisms. I think dual screens is just too awesome to be limited to one or two machines.
I don’t understand that since this is a premium netbook (i.e., already high priced), why did kohjinsha/inventec not use intel’s CULV platform for better performance and battery life?
The best reason I can think of is that the AMD/ATI combo is a much cheaper way to get a good graphics card on the system. Although the HD3200 is considered an IGP, it’s one of the better low end solutions in the market.
this video has been up since november https://newnetbookreviews.net/2009/dual-screen-2048-x-600-extreme-netbook-for-sale/
A video review that’s just been uploaded today has been on that website since November? That website has some impressive resources.
Oh or you’re mistaken.
not same video just same netbook
And I posted about that video on this site last month as well. It’s not the
same thing as a 20 minute, detailed review. I’m also getting tired of you
posting spammy links to your web site in the comments. Relevant links for
more information are fine. But at this rate, I’m starting to think the only
interest you have in commenting on this site is to promote your own website,
not to actually contribute to the discussion.
Prove me wrong and I won’t ban you.
Damn, I want one now. I didn’t think I did, but now I totally do.
