Averatec N3400 Laptop Review

The Averatec N3400 notebook boasts ultra affordability and ultra portability with its 3.8 lbs. weight, Intel Dual Core processor, 250 GB hard drive and a 13' widescreen display for $800. Kevin Pereira and Olivia Munn take a closer look to see if this laptop is worth the convenience and cash.

What You Need to Know

  • The computer has an all-aluminum body, which gives it a sleek feel
  • It is a little thicker and heavier than the Acer or Macbook Air
  • The keyboard has wide keys and is really comfortable to type on
  • The touchpad is not only multi-touch, but it also has an Icon Mode that'll let you launch a browser, e-mail, or your own macro; this is useful, but you might accidentally tap Icon Mode sometimes and disable the touchpad
  • It has a 2.16 gigahertz processor and 3 GB of RAM
  • In our regular PCMark Vantage tests, it scored about 3,000 points, only 100 points more than the Acer
  • In real world terms, it takes about 45 seconds to boot up and launch a web browser, whereas the Acer was about 55 seconds
  • Overall, it's good, but not great


  • $800
  • If it were a little faster, we could fully recommend it, but the Acer is $250 less and just as fast

    Another thing: it's $800. For just another $200 you can get a Mac. It doesn't seem worth it.

    This is what I don't get. How light does the thing have to be? I have a MacBook Pro and that is thin enough. I mean, does it really need to be as light as feather?.
