  • Averatec's new all-in-one is the choice for the discerning evil genius

    Take a look at that computer. I understand it’s not going to look quite that jet-black in real life, but come on. If you were an evil genius and you were outfitting headquarters, you can streamline both your hideout and your purchasing process by getting a bunch of these. Black and imposing, yet fast enough to crunch those evil numbers your henchmen are always dealing with. Read More

  • Review: Averatec D1133 18.4-inch All-In-One PC

    In a move to offer inexpensive all-in-one computers to consumers, many companies are fitting Intel’s Atom processors into small form factor PCs and selling them for around $500 to $600. Averatec has adopted a similar approach with the D1133 but has instead bumped the CPU up to a dual-core 1.5GHz AMD chip along with ATI Radeon 3200 graphics and then priced the system to move at… Read More

  • Quick Look: 18.4-inch Averatec D1100 All-In-One PC

    The 18.4-inch D1100 from Averatec showed up at my house recently and I thought, hey, lazy Saturday — let’s set it up. I had forgotten the specs, the price, and all the relevant details but when I had gotten everything together (a process which took less than ten minutes) I can tell you that I’m impressed by how nice the computer looks. Especially since — surprise! Read More

  • Hey Buddy: Averatec now selling rebranded MSI Wind as ‘Buddy’ netbook for $449

    The Averatec netbook that we caught “wind” of (pun majorly intended) back in August is now shipping. It’s called the Averatec Buddy and you’ll remember that it’s actually pretty much a rebranded MSI Wind, except that the Buddy has dropped the Bluetooth connection and popped in a 160GB hard drive. Oh, and the 10.2-inch screen features AveraBrite! Also, Averatec… Read More

  • Averatec to sell rebranded MSI Wind in September

    Remember Averatec? I sure do. I’ve owned two Averatec computers. One when the company used to be Sotec and another when it used to be Averatec. Now it’s sort of called TriGem, but sometimes called Averatec. Something like that. Anyhoo, Joanna Stern of Laptop Magazine spoke with Averatec’s marketing director and found out that Averatec and MSI are in cahoots. It turns out… Read More

The Averatec All-in-One PC (as it’s called) consists of a 22-inch screen at 1680×1050… Read More

  • Averatec releases new $1100 'ultraportable' notebook

    Ever the purveyor of affordable notebooks, Averatec has just released a 12.1-inch, 3.9-pound “ultraportable” notebook. I don’t know if I’d stretch this into the ultraportable realm — maybe thin and light, although “thin” is kind of stretching it too. Anyway, it’s a pretty good price for what you get; an AMD Turion 64 X2 dual-core processor… Read More
