You might be able to find some online stores selling Aurora for a few dollars cheaper, but all of those stores are selling the Chinese version for the China domestic market – the default language in the tablet , reference manual, product warranty card, and package are all in Chinese.

Notice any difference? The only main difference is that the Novo 7 Aurora has an IPS Capacitive Screen while the Novo 7 Elf doesn’t. For those who do not know what IPS is, IPS stands for In-Plane Switching which was developed by Hitachi back in 1996. An IPS display gives you a better display, more vivid color, and a wider angle for viewing. See the comparison below. The price difference is $20 USD. Is it worth the IPS upgrade ? Well, if you are fine with a non-IPS display, and the $20 difference is big enough for you, then you might settle for the Ainol Novo 7 ELF. But if you’re looking for better display and don’t mind to spend a little more, then you should go for Ainol Novo 7 Aurora. Another difference, but not in terms of their performance, is their finish. The Novo 7 Aurora has a glossy and shiny finish, while the Novo 7 Elf has a Matte finish.
