Averatec reliability

Does anyone know how reliable Averatec laptop computers are?  They
are not listed in the March 2005 Consumer Reports reliability chart.
Thank you in advance for all replies.
I used to think that most MDs were incompetent morons.  I was wrong,
they are actually very intelligent and good at what they do which is
make lots of money and get lots of prestige by shoveling enormous
amounts of BS very, very rapidly.

Hi Daniel,

I have an Averatec C3500 convertible, and it seems to run fine. I
have some software issues with the machine, but I expect them to be
resolved when I buy the Averatec Recovery Disk (SP2 version).

I initially had some complaint about performance but since upgrading
it to 1GB of RAM, it does all right.

Just so that you know, hard disk & RAM upgrades must be done by an
authorized repair station or you will void your warranty. Best Buy
did my RAM upgrade for $40. The RAM itself was $70 a piece for 512MB

The forums I've been reading indicate no major problems except that
some of them have a do not tamper unless you wish to void your
warranty sticker over the memory and hd areas.  There is a heck of an
Averatec deal at Sam's club and they have a six month return policy,
no restocking fee.  I'm almost ready to give it a try.

Re: Averatec reliability

I have used a Sotec 3120X for a year and a half with no problems. Sotec
became Averatec and they still sell a laptop of the same basic size;
works fine for my needs.
