Atlas Flyer 3400
Review The Atlas Flyer lives up to its name, swooping in to beat all rivals with a blistering WorldBench score and a ridiculously low price tag. It comes with a 1GHz Pentium III flip-chip processor twinned with 256MB of RAM. However, its WorldBench score of 161 beats all rivals. Even better, it costs a reasonable £1000.
The Atlas Flyer 3400 sports a 14.1in TFT screen, which is fine, if not outstanding. There's a 20GB hard drive for storage, while modem and network facilities are built in. One difference which might help to explain the Flyer's stunning WorldBench performance is that it runs Windows 2000 Pro, as opposed to Windows 98 or Me.
There's a one-year collect-and-return warranty, and it comes with a copy of Lotus SmartSuite Millennium. But it's not these extras that make the Atlas a winner - it owes its Best Buy award to the fantastic value for money it offers. ®
