Ultraportable laptops are the smallest, most lightweight laptops.
The Averatec 2700 is an ultraportable laptop made by the California-based low-cost laptop producer Averatec (previously known as “Sotec”). It provides basic features in a very small notebook, at a reasonable price.
The Averatec 2700 uses an Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor as standard. This dual-core processor has a speed of 2 gigahertz. The processor uses a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset (designed for use in laptops) to communicate with the other internal devices. The Averatec 2700 includes 4 gigabytes of DDR2 SDRAM as standard, although a maximum of 8 gigabytes can be supported.
The Averatec 2700 has a 250 gigabyte hard drive. This is unusually large for such a small machine; most other notebooks don’t consider storage capacity very important.
The Averatec 2700 has integrated graphics using a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 chip that is built in to the chipset. This provides limited graphics support but is a size- and power-efficient solution, which is appropriate for a notebook.
The Averatec 2700, weighing 4 pounds, is very small at 11.7 inches wide, 8.9 inches deep and 1.2 inches high. It has a 12.1-inch screen.
