Elonex Webbook notebook review

Filed under
Hardware
Ubuntu

With consumers snapping up netbooks faster than companies can make them, what makes Elonex think it has the solution with the Webbook? We took a closer look to find out.

Available from Carphone Warehouse the Elonex Webbook offers a 10.2-inch screen, 1.6GHz VIA C7-M processor, comes with an almost full-sized keyboard and measures 252 x 183 x 31.8mm.

Inside the Elonex Webbook and you get an 80GB hard drive and 512MB of memory to go with that VIA processor and while that means plenty of storage for files it means that you can’t expect too much on the performance front from this machine. Try and go beyond basic document management, web surfing or chatting and you'll start to hit problems. That's not to say this is slow, but to remember that it's a netbook not a fully blown laptop.

The Webbook comes with the option of two operating systems - Windows XP or the Ubuntu variant of Linux.

We tested the Ubuntu version.
