Though the name of the netbook may be misleading, the 10″ Colorful S101 NewYork netbook is actually manufactured by a Chinese company.
The NewYork netbook in general has pretty typical specs (a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1 GB of RAM, a 160 GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, and a 1.3 megapixel webcam) but it also has some less common features: an accelerometer and software that can rotate the display when the netbook is rotated, similar to what happens on an iPhone. The accelerometer also provides some shock protection for the hard drive. If the G-sensor detects the netbook is in freefall, it will automatically shut down the netbook’s hard drive.
The NewYork netbook weighs 1.1 kg with dimensions 265mm x 193mm x 25mm. The price tag is 2180 yuan, or roughly $320 USD, which isn’t too bad considering that the netbook doubles as an e-reader.
