Thanks for putting that bit in about trying to run Ubuntu. It was very useful.
It’s hard to see quite who Eurocom thinks will buy its Monster W110ER “gaming netbook”. Surely any gamer sufficiently hardcore to feel the need to be able to take a high-end gaming system around with them - and the W110ER is a high-end machine - will want to play on a larger screen than an 11.6-incher, especially when it’s …
Shame about the lack of display port, which would be a must to run my 30" monitor!
Great shame, as I would buy one of these, be great as a personal laptop, plug it into my TV for Videos etc, into my monitor for gaming. Then just chuck it in my suit case for holidays!
I had a 11.6" Sony TZ a couple of years ago, it was brilliant if a little underpowered..
The VGA port isn't as useless as the reviewer thinks it is.
On NVidia mobile gfx cards you can in fact drive 2 external displays independently - one from HDMI and one from VGA.
You can't do that with any of the other digital outputs from NVidia mobile gfx cards - eg if you had HDMI and DisplayPort then only one of those outputs could be active.
Yes. Reading this, I could quite see it living under my telly, hooked up via HDMI, and with a Bluetooth keyboad/mouse (family asleep? Full screen gaming ahoy!), so the small screen and weedy battery would never be an issue. But really, what would be the point? More than likely I could put something together to do the same, without spending £1k or more, were I so inclined.
Still, credit where it's due for the accessible innards - that's a nice feature in a laptop/netbook.
I have one of those 11-inch Alienware machines. I got it free when a friend dropped it and broke the HDD. I just had to buy a new drive, and now it runs Mint. Sad the Core2 Duo only goes 1.8 GHz. The thing still loves the 3D games I run on it. 4GB DDR3 & Nvidia graphics probably matters more than the CPU anyway. This box you have here probably isn't portable for long when under a load, but it still looks nice and so does the price.
