Raon Digital Everun . . . mini notebook

Raon_digital_everun_notebook

The AMD-powered mini notebook spotted at Computex and unofficially attributed to Raon Digital has just been confirmed by the 7-inch unit’s Device Manager to be the new Everun. It’s possible that the Korean company is just using the name as a placeholder (production is scheduled to begin at the end of July, according to Small-Laptops.com, so there’s still time for some brainstorming), but whatever it’s called, it will likely have the following specs: AMD Turion 64 X2 processor, 1GB RAM, 1024 x 600 touchscreen, optical mouse, 60GB/80GB hard drive, SD card slot, Bluetooth, wi-fi, and integrated HSDPA.

Although I wasn’t blown away by the original Everun, it was such an improvement over the Vega that I had high hopes for Raon Digital’s third mobile device. This Eee-alike, despite its specs, wasn’t what I had in mind. Where’s the "wow" in little laptops? I don’t think my pharmacist carries anything for a UMPC blues relapse.

  • They are stuffing a regular Turion X2 processor in that? Not even a LV, ULV processor?

    The Turion X2 in my 14″ Compaq got very very hot, I really fear for this one!

  • the wow effect? that’s something very personal, or should they create 20’000 different devices to suit personal taste? come on, this device is really wow, for many reasons:

    get me another device on the market with laptop style…not difficult, but with 7 inch touchscreen and full keyboard? not very easy.

    by the way, i have that processor in my HP tx2000 tablet, it gets freaking hot! that’s my only concern. unless they extremely underclock it, this device might get closer to the UNIVERSAL device: cook on it!

  • The design lacks innovation so I agree that the wow is also lacking. It isn’t much different from the Kohjinsha series, original Eee series, and even all the bigger netbooks. Compared to the Vega and Everun, this has no wow factor. I hope Raon comes out with another innovative and unique product and doesn’t give up on that in favor of the mini lappies.

    There is wow a plenty in there.
    Compare the performance of a either the Atom, Nano, or C7-M to even the slowest of the turion X2’s. They are separated by an order of magnitude in performance.
    PCMARK 05
    HP TouchSmart tx2 (2.4GHz Turion X2 Ultra ZM-86)
    Score: 3,488
    HP tx1000 (AMD Turion X2 2.0GHz)
    3,052 PCMarks

    Acer Aspire One (1.60GHz Intel Atom)
    1,555 PCMarks
    The ASUS Eee PC 901 (1.60GHz Intel Atom)
    pulls in an astonishingly low 746

    The HP 2133 Mini-Note (1.6GHz VIA C7-M ULV)
    Manages a positively craptacular 801 PCMarks.
    (full disclosure I am buying one anyways)

    So it’s twice going to be at least as fast and likely knock the doors the competition in performance. Even if intel releases the dualcore Atom, and via FINALLY releases the Isiah to the sweaty masses(myself included) the amd Netbook will probably still be a performance leader.
    Going from no product to performance leader…How much more “wow” do you need?
