Viewsonic 13.3" ViewBook 130 Notebook, 320GB HD, 2GB Ram, Intel Core 2

The 1.45kg ViewSonic ViewBook 130 is light and a great companion for mobile access to your applications. It has been intentionally designed to meet the needs of a sturdy, practical and lightweight notebook.

The new ViewSonic multi-finger touchpad turns complex actions into easy one-finger, two-finger or even threefinger functions. Very quickly you can drag, rotate, scroll Web pages, zoom and rotate images, launch applications or enter/exit the presentation mode.

Light, Bright and Simply Beautiful

Ultra thin featuring 1366x768 pixel resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio, the 13.3-inch LED backlit screen of the ViewBook 130 achieves the best balance between size and image quality for viewing wide-screen videos and multi-page documents. The LED screen is exceptionally bright with vivid colour and the manufacturing process is mercury-free, making it ecologically friendly. The compact ViewBook 130 weights only 1.45kgs and is 1.8cm at its thinnest; despite the light weight design, the standard-size floating island keyboard offers tactile and comfortable feedback even when used extensively.

Excellent price - also the GS45 chipset has hardware decoding for HD video so should play 1080p videos.

Info above says gma4500 I would have thought 4500hd would be needed for hd video?

2 year warranty is standard apparently (according to techradar)

what is the max memory pls?

Hmmm the eBay description is inconsistent as it states this near the top:

Intel GS45 + ICH9-M chipset;

Does anyone know how many mp is the camera?

the full details are here. It looks like this model has the HD graphics and not the standard but i may be wrong.

bought one. thanks for the spot

It has one memory slot so maximum memory would be a single 4GB DDR3 memory stick.

the official site says for this cpu...

Model with Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 processor: Intel® GMA 4500MHD, Microsoft DirectX 10.0 compatible

In the review it says single core celeron processor. Can anyone confirm it has duo core porcessor?

is this brand good and reliable?
very tempted
Edited by: "seancsc" 8th Mar 2011

A decent price imo for the spec

very tempting, and incredibly thin.
slightly tempted to repalce my asua 1201n with this.
this has a better cpu but less powerful graphics, as the asus has an ion, what to do?

That looks lovely and is a good price! It's also a very good deal if it inc. M$ win7 pro. That costs over £100 on it's own!!oO

tempting

Terrific Deal! Nice portable laptop for little money! wish I could vote Hot twice!

I'm also wondering if you could Hackintosh this??

Is this likely to have netbook-type performance, or be closer to a basic laptop? Would mostly be for running office/web software.

if it is a 4500mhd then no you cant, well technically you can but the graphics will stick in 1024x768 if you get it too work!
Edited by: "haritori" 8th Mar 2011

was just looking for a basic laptop and this fits the bill, HOT!

This will perform much better than a 1.6GHz Atom for most tasks.

It'll get nowhere near 8 hours battery life though, 31 WHr will probably give it around 3-4 hours. Still its a great deal.

Interesting, definately a hot price - will blow netbooks out the water with that processor if you want to stay portable but still have a bit more screen real estate!

Reviews HERE and HEREIm intregued... What are prople's cthoughts comparing it to the Acer 4810T that was on a few weeks back @ £229.99?


This has a faster processor and is slightly smaller, lighter, and has bigger hard drive too... albeit £20 more

But the acer has 1gb more ram, a REAL up-to 8 hour battery (6.5 hours real life wifi on etc... found in use) - i.e. not a pathetic 3 and half hour affair, an optical drive and an aluminium lid.

Is this a better deal then the Acer in your opinions? Please ignore the fact one has Windows 7 as a lot of people got windows 7 with the acer and its not a concern to me personally, as I have several copies of 7 anyway lying about.

Shame about the speed & battery life.

Looks nice!

should I? or not?

It's look good for the price plus 2 years warranty.

It should have a much much better performance than a netbook (which is Intel Atom normally). In terms of battery life it will last less than a netbook. I would certainly prefer this one over a netbook.

Thanks for the replies.

Wow, good spec and great price. In fact, it is similar in spec to the Tosh T230 i ordered on Saturday that cost £325. NOTE TO SELF: in future, under no circumstances visit HUKD within four weeks of purchasing a major electrical item because it always ends in tears. *sigh*

Have one with SU9600 and get about 3-4 hours of battery life. Plays HD movies without problem. Does not look as nice as it does on pictures. Overall feels cheap compared to other laptops, but I paid cheap too.

Whats the GPU like?

You have a Viewbook with an SU9600?

It is made of cheap plastic, just sprayed painted silvered. very flimsy and I feel like paint is going to come off soon.

Single slot of memory is a big let down as single 4GB module cost a lot

1) Most laptops in this price band will have the same issue
2) Do you actually own the laptop?

Seems to be a nice little laptop and for the price you cannot fault the spec-only gripe I have is the battery life which is not as stated in the spec.

oh sh iit,didnt notice the memory slot,thinking of putting another 2gb ram.
Received a email from them,mine alreadi despatched.
oh god,2gb ram is not good enough....
what should i do?
