And to begin with…
Choosing a new laptop means that you will have to decide between several models.The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.We’ve put this Netbook 10 through some tests based on how you’re going to use it.
This article will help you make the right choice according to your needs.
Netbook 10 enough for internet use?
We can consider that for certain uses, such as surfing the web, it is not necessary to buy a high-powered model. An inexpensive computer such as Netbook 10 may seem to be the solution. G-Anica is a manufacturer that has been offering laptops for several years now, but for this laptop they have used lower quality components. In the end, it is a product that will make you think about changing it in less than 4 years.
You will be able to carry it easily thanks to its 10.1 inches size. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Intel Atom x5-Z8350. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. The lack of RAM will surely be felt with this laptop which has just 1 Gb of memory. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
This is one of the smallest available disk space among the laptops of the moment. By offering only 4 Gb, this Netbook 10 is one of the smallest in its category. Not prohibitive in your daily use, but annoying; If you are used to consuming space, think about having a large USB key or external hard drive near you.
Finally, even if, like many users, you keep this computer connected, you should know that its autonomy of 10 hours makes it one of the most durable models on the market. That’s a good thing in case you want to take it on vacation. A feature that will keep you surfing for a long time.
Is Netbook 10 okay to watch videos ?
You are considering laptops for standard multimedia use (watching movies, storing photos, listening to music)! G-Anica offers the Netbook 10 perfect for that. Not the best, however it is one of the models existing in a tight price range.
Through all the available laptops, you will know if, despite an average score, it corresponds to your needs.
Equipped with a small screen size, 10.1 inches, it has a resolution format 1920×1080. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.1 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Like the majority of the laptops screen on the market, this model is equipped with the glossy finish. Netbook 10 will be ideal for movies, photos and games in a dark or half light environment because you will have the means to control light intensity. On the other hand, you may feel visually tired after 2 or 3 hours of viewing.
For the sound part, the Netbook 10 is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Intel Atom x5-Z8350 is now outdated. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. Still, it may be enough for multimedia use, as long as you only run one application at the same time.
Equipped with the Intel UHD Graphics 620 graphic card, and with 1 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Regarding the connectivity part, G-Anica has made efforts with available 3 ports. It’s better than the competition. Speakers, a mouse (wired), an external hard drive and an output to a pocket projector when on business trip or when you travel.
A laptop usually has an autonomy of several hours.You get 10 hours of battery life, which is better than many other models. Your viewing will not be abruptly stopped in the middle of your movie, Netflix session, or any other streaming platform.
Is Netbook 10 planned for travelling ?
One of the primary functions of a laptop is to be easily transportable. So we put this test to the Netbook 10. Under what conditions can you take it with you on trips, at weekends or on public transport? Or ultimately will it have the function of staying at home?
However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
With a weight of 1.1 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. A 10.1 inches size that can be painful when you have to stay there for more than an hour.
No backlit keyboard on this Netbook 10. Not really necessary.
The glossy slab offers better viewing comfort than the previous model. The rendering on screen is good. On the other hand, this last characteristic will be less interesting for outdoor use because of the sun reflections that will occur.
This model does not have a matt or anti-reflective tile. Also, you will avoid using this laptop outdoors or with too much light.
The processor Intel Atom x5-Z8350 is inferior to other competitive products.
The result is a poorer autonomy. Furthermore, these figures reflect an estimate of G-Anica; the reality is closer to 70% of this value.
Regarding the autonomy of this laptop, you will have 10 hours before having to reconnect; that is to say one of the best csore on the market.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 4 Gb. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.Thanks to this, G-Anica was able to almost completely eliminate the noise caused by the rotation of the platters and the movements of the read/write heads existing on conventional disks.For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. Equipped with a compact 10.1 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
On the connector side, it Netbook 10 has 3 ports. That makes it one of the best equipped models on the market.

All in all, this Netbook 10 is an interesting product for travel.

Whether in terms of computing speed or memory capacity, G-Anica has designed an interesting product. This laptop will facilitate multitasking, and you will be able to simultaneously run applications such as Photoshop, Magix Video or Vegas pro with an operating Google Android 4.4.2 system.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Atom x5-Z8350. However, there’s no question of switching to professional applications; the processor performance and the 4 Gb disk size will calm your nerves due to their lack of power and space.
The designers of G-Anica have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. As a reminder, an audio and video editing use, involves a large capacity hard disk drive for storage, and speed of execution with an SSD. The Netbook 10 has only got one, with total 4 Gb storage for your movies and music. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
As with many laptops, autonomy is a delicate subject. Being only on batteries, you have 10 hours of autonomy at your disposal. This is the best on the market today.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it Netbook 10 receives the USB3 connection. This model will allow you to connect to an external storage drive for even more space when your local disk is full. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.

Netbook 10 the right choice to play online?
Most manufacturers are aware that the use of laptops is not limited to word processing and spreadsheets. It appears that in terms of performance or on the issue of general cooling, this Netbook 10 is one of the models in the average. During our tests, we found that the computer was raised correctly, as soon as the scenes in some games required fast movements and colour changes.
Simply put, the higher the screen resolution, the more accurate the details in a game. This model is proposed in resolution 1920×1080, that is to say one of the best on the market.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Ideal for old design games, it has difficulty restoring the images and colors of the latest online games. Clearly, if you want to use it to play all day long, it may be relevant to turn to a more powerful model.
With an average score on the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) ranking, this laptop allows you to try some games. With a display system, this machine provides a speed in the average of what is currently done.
Besides the amount of storage space is clearly insufficient.4 Gb are the minimum for computers today, making it one of the laptops with the least amount of space.
A better access to wifi on this Netbook 10 that is standard equipped with the 5GHz band. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.1 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
With an autonomy of 10 hours, it’s better than the competition.
So it’s a middle ground for gaming; enough performance at the right price. And if necessary, you can use it for internet browsing and e-mail.

This model is intended for those who want to change their system. The operating system is indeed Google Android 4.4.2.
Assuming that you will have to take this laptop to the office, on a trip, or any other travel, you will appreciate its weight. This model, with its 1.1 Kg is one of the ultra-compact ones.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
This Netbook 10 has no matt slab. The Matte screen is ideal for use outdoors or near bright light. Testing the lamp next to the screen can affect the quality of work in office use. For bright areas, they are clearly cut out, the colours are intense, with a high degree of brightness and image sharpness.
If you work on your computer in the evening, you might regret that the backlight option is not provided on this laptop.
It’s one of the smallest backup spaces, with 4 Gb. Not really a problem for office use, but perhaps penalizing for some users.
