While the Computex trade show in Taiwan is awash with Intel Atom-powered computers, the VIA Nano CPU has been a bit harder to find. That’s not really too surprising, since Intel officially launched the Atom today, while VIA’s newest chip probably won’t be ready to ship for a little while longer.

But the folks at AVING did manage to find one 10.2 inch laptop that claims to feature a 1.2GHz VIA Nano processor. The Tongfang Imini SI Mini-Note also has the VIA VX700 IGP chipset, VIA UniChrome Pro II 3D/2D graphics, and packs an 80GB hard drive and 512MB of RAM. It weighs in at 1.3kg, measures 249 mm x 180mm x 32 mm, and comes with a 6 cell 4000mAh battery. And that’s all we know for now.

  1. Great post, maybe you could answer this question what make the Nano processor so great.. Your example of the laptop above states a processor speed of 1.2ghz. to me thats a little on the slow side in terms of processing speed.
