    Does anybody own an averatec laptop?
    They're cheap because its not a very well known brand. I'm worried about the quality though.

    From what I've read, they have the almost the worst battery life in their class.

    And, a few models have been plauged with the hinges breaking/cracking under normal ussage.

    You should spend the extra cash and get something good, imo

    the newer 3300 series has 3+ hrs.
    I've read varied reviews. Most are postitive though. avg is 4.5 out of 5 stars on amazon with 30 or so reviews. There are a few reviews that complain about the casing being cheap. But you get what you pay for.

    3 hours out of a Pentium-M is not very good, my Thinkpad gets 4.5-5 hours on the standard battery and has a 14" screen.
