ViewSonic, like virtually every netbook maker on the face of the earth, is introducing a new Windows 7 version of its 10 inch mini-laptop. The VNB102 with Windows 7 Starter Edition will hit the streets on December 18th for about $399.
Aside from the new operating system, there’s little to set the VNB102 apart from earlier netbooks from ViewSonic, or pretty much any other PC vendor, for that matter. The computer has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive.
The screen is a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display. It sports Ethernet, 802.11b/g/ WiFi, and a VGA output. And the netbook has a 6 cell battery that ViewSonic says is good for up to 6 hours.
