Viliv Netbook & Notebook Models On Way to US Shores
- 1 Comment
Viliv, a Korean PC manufacturer, has been creating efficient and creative portables for a while now. Although relatively unknown in the United States, Viliv’s visibility here does not accurately reflect on the quality of products released. Originally, Viliv’s merchandise was only available through online retailers, but that will change tomorrow: Best Buy plans on releasing a total of 5 new Viliv models, including the anticipated S7 convertible netbook. The S7 features a touch screen, Windows XP, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth, and a 60GB hard drive.
Weighing a miniscule 1.76 pounds, and having dimensions of 8.3 by 4.6 by 1 inches, the S7 is highly portable. In the end, the S7 comes in at a reasonable cost of $579. As an added bonus, if the buyer registers a Sprint Mi-Fi or Overdrive hotspot, a $50 rebate will be included. Although $50 seems like a respectable offer, the mildly more expensive $649 S7 model has a 3G modem capable of utilizing any SIM card for internet connectivity. Which one’s the better investment? That decision will be left for you to decide.
