SIGMA 433

Best Budget Buy Award
Computer Shopper (August '00)

Presentation

A large yet stylish notebook weighing in at over 7.5lb with a pale sliver finish. Pacman-shaped LEDs and grille-covered front-facing speakers help the Sigma 433 to stand out from the crowd.

Configuration

With only a Celeron 433 processor and 64Mb Ram, performance is below what might be expected from a notebook of this size, although an 8Mb ATI chip ensures a good level of graphics performance.

Features

No DVD as standard but the Sigma 433 does boast a desktop replacement class 14.1' screen, integrated modem and TV-out port. The Li-ion battery pack comes with a battery-life indicator that can be operated via a button on the Sigma's right flank.

Summary

This will appeal to those who want a large screen without wanting to splash out on oodles of power. The incorporation of the screen does result in bulky dimensions and a lack of portability. Reviewed Issue 150, Page 376

If you're after a large screen but can do with PIII performance or DVD , Rock's Sigma 433 is also well worth a look at at just 1,350 and receives a Best Budget Buy.
