A new device is out on the market, one reminiscient of the flashy but expensive Sony Vaio P. It’s called the Viliv S7, and rocks some features you’re definitely going to want to check out. Could it be indicative of a new trend of luxury netbooks?
All the info we have is from a single image, available here. However, it’s more than enough to get us extremely excited.
The Viliv S7 uses a 1.33 or 1.86 GHz Intel Atom CPU. At first we didn’t know what to call it, but the processor combined with the sleek tablet-style form factor told us – this thing is a netbook.
It has a miniscule 7.0-inch display, small even by netbook standards. The Viliv S7 could almost be considered a smartphone due to its diminuitive size.
The Viliv S7 has a 1.3 megapixel camera and will run for 7 hours with “continuous movie playback.” It has 1 GB of RAM, which is nothing special, but uses both a 16 GB SSD and a 60 GB HDD in concert. This combination of drives is a computing style that it alone shares with the MSI Wind U115 Hybrid. It will run Windows XP.
If you’re anything like us, this netbook looks undeniably awesome. We don’t know about price or release info but we’ll be sure to check up on it when the time comes.
