The Kinpo N03V is an 11.6 inch portable laptop with a VIA Nano processor. It has a 3G modem, and it’s available in Taiwan for about $250 bundled with a 2-year mobile broadband contract.
Nicole from Netbook News got a chance to check one out in person recently and she’s posted an unboxing video. Now, normally when you get to unbox a new computer, it means you’ve purchased one and taken it to your house or office to spend some quality time with it. In this case, Nicole actually went into the Kinpo research and development headquarters in Taiwan and got a chance to open up a Kinpo N03V that was wrapped up in its retail packaging.
The laptop has a nice large keyboard, a wide touchpad with two distinct mouse buttons, and a glossy display. There’s an LED indicator next to the 1.3MP webcam, which is a nice feature that you don’t get with most netbooks.
The 4000mAh battery sits below the laptop, which means there’s room fora couple of ports on the back of the laptop. All told you get 3 USB ports, an SD card reader, VGA, Ethernet, and mic and headphone jacks. The N03V has 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, a VIA Nano U2250 CPU and an 11.6 inc, 1366 x 768 pixel display.
One of the neatest features is that you can upgrade the RAM or other components by popping off the keyboard which appears to be remarkably easy to do as you can see toward the end of the video below.
