Ainol Novo7 Elf 2 vs Aurora 2 : IPS screen

Just a little comparison video that shows the difference between the normal screen of the Elf 2 and the IPS screen of the Aurora 2. I really didn’t wanted the IPS screen because I don’t think it is worth the additionnal 20$ but you might want to consider that if you are a hardcore gamer, or an internet addict.

Updates... updates!
