Averatec AV3715 - beware!

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

If you're considering the Averatec AV3715 mini-notebook computer,
beware. This machine is an x86 knockoff of the 12" iBook, but the build
quality is nowhere near Apple's. In particular the entire machine
flexes and I strongly suspect this is why my unit failed totally after
three weeks of use. The more I read on the web about Averatec's
warranty service, the more I'm convinced I'm not going to be back in
business until I buy another laptop.

If you want to see a disassembly of the machine, I photographed the
process and documented the steps.
