Viliv S10 netbook tips up at IDF
Viliv S10 netbook debuts at IDF promising 10 hours of run time per charge.
The Korean computer maker Viliv is well known for the full line of MIDs and UMPCs that it offers. The company has now branched out into the netbook market with the introduction at IDF of the Viliv S10
. The machine has a 10-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768 and a convertible screen that is touch sensitive.
The rig has a choice of processors with an Intel Atom 1.33GHz on the low-end and higher-end systems getting an Atom running at 2GHz. The netbook will run Windows 7 when it launches. Storage options include a 32GB or a 64GB SSD, 1GB of RAM, and optional 3G. Those SSDs are reportedly SanDisk models tuned for power savings.
The power sipping nature of the components inside the chassis means that the little beastie can run for ten hours on a single charge. That's a large claim and in the real world, I won’t be surprised to see it run for less than that. Even eight hours of run time would be good though. The S10 will retail for around $US500 ($AUD573) in basic form.
