ViewSonic VNB101

22 September 2009
  • Summary: 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.
  • Pros: Portable, like any netbook, A tiny bit lighter than the norm due to the smaller battery
  • Cons: Poor battery life, Uses Sentelic touchpad

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

  • Summary: 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 hours in our tests. It does look decent, though, and it comes with a version of the Linpus Lite operating system pre-installed, in addition to Windows XP.
  • Pros: Dual-booting (Windows XP and Linpus Lite), touchpad with gesture support, relatively nice design
  • Cons: Audible cooling fan, only two USB 2.0 ports, awkwardly positioned SD card slot, comparatively short battery life

  • Pros: Linpus OS, great screen
  • Cons: Poor battery life, same old specs

  • Summary: The ViewSonic VNB101 netbook won't turn many heads, but it's a decent, albeit quirky, little laptop for users who want something small and reasonably easy to use.
