First, what is your utilisation ? For what do you need a laptop ?

Second, I don't know a lot about Averatec, but in my mind, the minute that you leave the big brands ( HP, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, ASUS and at the limit Acer ), you fall into something that is less durable, that has an inferior quality vis-a-vis the big brands.

Celeron is better than the Sempron because it has a bigger L2 Cache.

The name change is in my opinion a way to escape their past.

Nothing has changed in the top brass or other areas.
