Averatec D1133 All-In-One review: Averatec D1133 All-In-One

Averatec was considerate enough to include a few useful features on the otherwise spare exterior of the D1133, although they're difficult to locate. We're always glad to see hard controls for display power, brightness, and volume on an all-in-one, but we wish Averatec hadn't obscured them under a ledge of plastic sticking out from the D1133's base unit.

The D1133 does have a few uncommon ports for a low-cost all-in-one. We've seen $1,000 all-in-ones that lack DVI and eSATA outputs, so Averatec deserves credit for its connectivity options. If you buy this system with the intention of connecting it to an external display however, we respectfully suggest you abdicate your technology-purchasing decisions to someone with more sense. The standard collection of USB 2.0 and headphone and microphone jacks outlines the rest of the input/output choices.

Averatec is also to be commended for the power efficiency of its little D1133 All-in-One. Given its low-wattage CPU, we'd expect the D1133 to draw power sparingly. Consuming less power than the slower Lenovo C300 is a more impressive feat. None of these Nettops will really strain your annual power bill, but even among low-power PCs, it's interesting to see Averatec demonstrate that there's still room for its competitors to improve.

Averatec's parent company, Tri-Gem, backs the D1133 All-in-One with one year of parts-and-labor coverage, in keeping with the industry standard. Its phone based support is a toll call, and is only open on Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. PST. Online support for technical issues is basically nonexistent.
