ViewSonic VNB141 notebook review
ViewSonic unveils its new ultra thin 14” ULV notebook, ViewSonic VNB141. The new model is fairly similar to its predecessor Viewbook Pro, though it is equipped with some remarkable features. At first impression, you can’t deny the attractive look of View Sonic VNB 141 which comes with simple glossy black chassis. The screen is little bigger than Viewbook pro. The keyboard is up to the mark and keys are well spaced, making typing very comfortable.
ViewSonic VNB141 has 14’’ WXGA LED Backlit display with 1366 X 768 pixels resolution, giving excellent picture quality. It’s Ultra low voltage Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor consumes less power but at the same time helps to complete plenty of tasks. It comes with pre-installed windows 7 home premium as operating system. ViewSonic VNB141 is equipped with 2GB DDR3 SDRAM memory and 250 GB SATA hard drive. One can’t say that this specification is good enough for a $830 laptop. You can easily avail notebook of similar specification at a lesser price.
If you take a look at the connectivity features then ViewSonic VNB141 notebook comes with 2 USB ports placed at the right side of the notebook along with mic/headphone jack and the optical drive. The power port and eSATA port is placed at the left side of the notebook along with VGA out and HDMI out. The front edge consists of memory card reader (7 in 1). For switching wifi radio there is a toggle, also placed at front edge of the system. Viewsonic VNB141 also has a 1.3 megapixels webcam.
Battery life of ViewSonic VNB141 is average. The 6 cells battery gives on an average 6 hours of battery life which is little disappointing.
The ultra thin light weight notebook is useful for travelers
Built-in camera helps you to connect with your closer ones.
14” screen size helps for easy viewing compare to 13.3” inch.
ViewSonic VNB141 is little overpriced.
Only 2 USB ports are there which is a little disappointing
The ultra thin 14” ViewSonic VNB141 notebook is good for travelers or who has to move frequently. Though from manufacturer’s point of view it is aimed at student community but in that case, I think, they should have considered putting more battery life. Overall Specification is also fair. Price wise it is overpriced. If it were available at 150$-200$ cheaper than its current price, then I think it should have been more realistic.
