Trigem’s Averatec N1200 netbook is an attractive 10.1 inch mini-laptop that has a boxy but professional looking shape reminiscent of the HP Mini 5102. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have the HP laptop’s battery life. Laptop Magazine reviewed the Averatec N1200 recently and was barely able to squeeze 2.5 hours of run time out of the 2 cell, 3200mAh battery.
Aside from the poor battery life, the netbook looks like standard fare. It has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 10.1 inch. 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. It runs Windows 7 Starter Edition and supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
On the bright side, the Averatec N1200 is cheap. You can pick one up for just under $300. Laptop Magazine reports another version with a 6 cell battery is due out in April.
