Formerly Sotec, the same crew is at work. Why the name change?

I'd rather not detail the sordid tales. Let me just write to avoid them.

I wouldn't have them on any list to consider. You won't find me write "bad", but I wouldn't go near one either.

i currently own an Averatec laptop that i've had for over a year. It's very good for our needs. we use it for internet use and programming. it wouldn't be a great machine for media or gaming but for a programming machine and office use it's great.

I've had an Averatec for 6 months, and I absolutely love it. It's so portable and the support from Averatec was adequate, if not excellent. Good buy.
