Kogan's Atlas Pro is a 'gaming' notebook with a sub-$1000 pricetag

Not the best specs, though

Discount online retailer Kogan is targeting the gaming market with its Atlas Pro.

The Atlas Pro goes on sale for $999, but the inexpensive price covers computing hardware that is dated.

The Windows 10 notebook has a 15.6-inch, Full HD display.

Inside is an fourth generation processor hailing from Intel’s year-old Haswell family. The 2.5GHz quad-core CPU can be boosted in spurts to run at 3.5GHz.

Handling graphics is NVIDIA’s introductory GeForce 940M. NVIDIA promotes the graphics card as being designed for multimedia — photos, videos and music. It sits below the company’s GTX950M, which is the company’s introductory graphics card.

There’s 8GB of older DDR3 RAM and a 1TB hard drive.

Connectivity options fare well with dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0 and four USB ports, of which three support USB 3.0.

Presale for the Kogan Atlas Pro starts today. The $999 notebook begins shipping on 6 November.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
