ViewSonic VNB101

 

The netbook market is so tight, you need some sort of competitive advantage to stand above the crowd. ViewSonic brings a standard netbook with two negatives instead — poor battery life and a bad touchpad.

Portable, like any netbook, A tiny bit lighter than the norm due to the smaller battery

Poor battery life, Uses Sentelic touchpad

ViewSonic VNB101 review

 

The monitor manufacturer steps up its game and enters the netbook race

Good build quality ; Bluetooth

Power ; Battery life ; Screen

This netbook fails to match the current competition on all the major points and unfortunately we cannot recommend it

ViewSonic's VNB101 is a 1.1kg netbook that ultimately fails to satisfy

 

If you're looking for a thin and light netbook, ViewSonic's 1.1kg VNB101 does have some merit, but it also has a few drawbacks. You only get two USB 2.0 ports, its SD card slot is located in an awkward position, and its battery life was short of two...

Dual-booting (Windows XP and Linpus Lite), touchpad with gesture support, relatively nice design

Audible cooling fan, only two USB 2.0 ports, awkwardly positioned SD card slot, comparatively short battery life

ViewSonic VNB101 review

 

A smart, well-built netbook with a great screen and comfortable keyboard. It's just a shame that its battery life isn't longer.

Viewsonic VNB101 review

 

It would be easy to dismiss ViewSonic's VNB101 as just another netbook. There's little in the specification that stands out, with the usual 1.6GHz Atom N280 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard disk, Windows XP Home Edition and 10.2in screen.

It runs Windows XP, but the ViewSonic VNB101 also has a version of Linux installed that you can boot into quickly if you don't need to use anything more than web-based applications.

Viewsonic VNB101

 

The Viewsonic VNB101 is yet another 10.1-inch netbook with so-so specs. So, it that packs in an Intel Atom N280 processor, 1024MB of RAM and 160GB hard drive but manages to be lighter than most at just 1.1kg. It runs Windows XP but Viewsonic has been...

The Viewsonic VNB101 has a great screen and we like the use of Linux as well as Windows but the keyboard is a drag and overall performance is less than impressive. Overall, there are simply better value netbooks out there. Viewsonic VNB101 is tagged...
