ViewSonic ventures into netbook territory and unveils the VNB101
ViewSonic has decided to add to the mini-notebook PC game with the VNB101 netbook, presenting portability and power in a small package.

With a slim 25mm form and 1.1kg weight, the VNB101 is being touted by the company as the elite netbook. Embellished with IML (In-mould Labeling) surface technology, the VNB101 is durable, resisting scratches and scuffs with a high-shine finish ensuring its colour will not fade over time.

Under the cover is a 10 wide colour TFT Active Matrix LED-backlit display with 1024x600 pixels. The display emits less heat making it energy efficient.

Beyond its smooth surface the VNB101 incorporates a touchpad with multi-touch technology allowing users to browse web pages, zoom and rotate images, or jump pages as easily as moving two fingers.

Inside the VNB101 there's an Intel Atom N280 processor with 1GB memory, 160GB HDD and Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition. The company says the package can get boot times as fast as 8 seconds.

The VNB101 also comes equipped with WiFi 802.11 b/g, 10/100 Ethernet and built-in Bluetooth, as well as an ultra-light lithium-polymer battery that gives 2.5 hours battery life. The 92% standard size keyboard offers a good compromise between size and speed.

The ViewSonic VNB101 will be available from September 2009 with a suggested retail price of NZ$799.
