I am currently unsure as to what model to buy. The c67ml seems to be about the cheapest boox device with a “full” a2 mode, i.e. no flashing. Alternatively, the Boox n96ml, which has a bigger screen suitable for browsing appears to have an a2 mode according to specifications. However I can’t find visual proof of this, and the only video (https://youtu.be/77kIpwei46Q) of an “n96” browsing in a2 shows flashing.

What is the N96ml a2 internet browsing like? Or running through vnc? I don’t know.

The n96ml in TheEbookReader’s review looks perfect. Smooth, responsive.
Ask this in the Onyx sub-forum. People there have the device. IMO vnc is too laggy. It's only fast enough when you natively use programs on the device itself. Slaving is too laggy.

I just don't think I'd personally bother with a 6" device for browsing. Seems like wasting money. It's just too small for me. But usable for pdf. But you're starting to talk big bucks. I'd ask around first to make sure it does what you want. I'd be surprised if videos don't exist.

Apparently the n96 has same processor as t68, which is too slow.

I wish to research but my eyes hurt using backlit monitors, though the nook helps. The videos on n96 browsing have been confusing to me, for the reason that there are two models called n96. I am looking at the Icarus XL HD (1.6ghz, 1gb ram, a2)

Yes it looks like the delay would be as long as a flashing in normal refresh mode, removing the productive benefits of a2 refresh.

Thanks, I have asked.

Looks like the Boox Note might be the solution to this question, so long as it has an a2 mode. It’s £500, but at 10 inches, 330g, 1.6ghz, and 2gb of ram, I feel it’s worth the risk.

I’ll hopefully post my findings on cheaper solutions here at some stage.

But it seems true that the CPU is poor.

Looks maybe a bit too slow (and I don’t mind some comprimise).

It seems frustratingly hard to gauge from online videos the speed of these devices.

I may be able to post a video soon of the HD XL browsing in a2.

I bought the n96ml which has been quite good for reading web articles, browsung forums etc. It zooms with double tap. The 1gb ram gives a lot of room for tabs, and in opera a2 mode works as well as the nook, by which i mean it must be reloaded at times. Purchased for 205 english currency. It is also a great ereader and note taker.

Typing with stylus as i haven't found a good bt keyboard yet.... but I may soon post a detailed review...

I was unable as Icarus did not seem to understand my requests...
