Paul Lilly

ViewSonic, a newcomer to the ULV laptop market, has just unveiled its VNB131 ViewBook Pro, the company's first nobeook to utilize ultra low voltage technology. According to ViewSonic, this is just the first of many more to come.

"Our mobile and desktop PC products range in size and functionality in order to meet every individuals' computing needs," said ViewSonic's senior director of product marketing Sally Wang. "With our ULV VNB131 ViewBook Pro, mobile warriors get all the power they need, packaged to go in a lean, green design."

More specifically, ViewSonic's first ULV notebook ships with a 13.3-inch screen and an Intel Core 2 Duo ULV SU7300 processor clocked at 1.3GHz. Other specs include a 320GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM, and a removable DVD burner. That last bit is particularly noteworthy because if you take the optical drive out, ViewSonic says you can pop in an extra 3-cell battery for up to 12 hours of run time.

The rest of the specs include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 1.3MP webcam, 7-in-1 media card reader, HDMI, two USB 2.0 ports, a 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium.

This one is available now for $950.
