ViewSonic bolsters laptop business

ViewSonic has launched two new netbooks through its PC business. The firm has only recently began producing full PCs after making a name for itself in the monitor and projector market.

The VNB100 is an entry level device for performing basic functions, featuring a ten-inch colour TFT Active Matrix LCD screen, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160 GB hard drive, integrated wi-fi and Ethernet connectivity, and Windows XP. ViewSonic says the netbook can become a mini-TV via the PCI-Express slot and also has on-board GPS.

The VNB101 is a higher end model, and has a slim 25mm design and weighs 1.1kg. The device has a frameless screen design, an Intel Atom N280 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB of storage and Microsoft Windows XP Home. It has an eight second boot-up time, and comes loaded with wi-fi 802.11 b/g, 10/100 Ethernet and Bluetooth connectivity, five hours of battery life, and a multiple touch control pad for image manipulation.

The VNB100 and VNB101 are now available with an SRP of £299 and £329 respectively.
