Gadgetell Hands On: ViewSonic VNB102 netbook

 

I have spent the past few weeks playing with the ViewSonic VNB102 netbook and while I am putting the finishing touches on my full review, I thought now would be a good time to share some images of the netbook. I think I have just about every angle...

Viewsonic VNB102 Review

 

This is Viewsonic's very first foray into the netbook arena and although I believe there are some good things to be said about the netbook (such as it's thin chassis and very responsive touchpad) the problem is that most netbooks have moved onto more...

Only 1.1 inch thick, Great touchpad and buttons, Minimal bloatware

Keyboard has a lot of bounce which makes it feel cheap, weak netbook specs based on current competition, small keyboard (see full review)

This netbook features the Intel Atom N270 1.6 GHz processor along with the rest of the familiar early 2009 netbook specs (160 GB hard drive, 1 GB of RAM etc.) so don't expect to play Crysis or some other high end PC games on this netbook as there is...

Product Specifications

From now on, you'll have a second thought about stylish netbooks thanks to the ViewSonic VNB102. It's not a toyish laptop that barely computes, but a technology feat with stunning style and beauty. Forget about yesterday's laptops, and think again about how VNB102 could change your everyday life.
