Viewsonic ViewBook Pro VNB131 Review


There's no mistaking Viewsonic's design inspiration. From the Apple-style packaging to the brushed-metal finish of the VNB131 itself, this is most definitely a MacBook wannabe. Still, if you're going to base your product on a rival, you could do far...

Viewsonic VNB131 ViewBook Pro Review - A Review of the Viewsonic VNB131 ViewBook Pro


Stylish, durable design, Excellent LED display, Large, comfortable touchpad, Built-in security alarm

Relatively expensive, Below-average battery life, Small mouse buttons, Runs warm

While we liked the thinness of the VNB131, we didn't like how hot it got. After playing a Hulu video at full screen for 15 minutes, the touchpad measured 100 degrees Fahrenheit, the space between the G and H keys reached 93 degrees, and the underside...

Viewsonic ViewBook Pro review


Viewsonic's ViewBook Pro bears an uncanny resemblance to Toshiba's Portege R600 which costs almost twice as much. Like the Portege, it feels well-made but flexes under pressure more than we'd like. The base can also become very warm.

Viewsonic's ViewBook Pro has a good quality display and an ExpressCard slot, but its flawed touchpad and relatively short battery life count against it.

ViewSonic ViewBook Pro review


Viewsonic's ViewBook Pro has a good quality display and an ExpressCard slot, but its flawed touchpad and relatively short battery life count against it.

We wanted to like Viewsonic's ViewBook Pro, but its comparatively short battery life and deeply flawed touchpad let it down. Although the ViewBook has its merits, such as its great display, the flaws prevent us from seeing it as a serious contender to...
