Vye_s41Small notebooks just keep popping up all over but what sets the Vye S41 apart from most is the optical drive.  I believe the 7-inch Vye S41 may very well be the smallest notebook with an integrated optical drive which some find to be critical for their needs.  The S41 is also a convertible notebook meaning the screen will swivel around so the device can be used as a slate tablet which no doubt contributes to the $1499 price tag.  Vista Home Premium is loaded which I believe means that the tablet bits are integrated making the S41 one of the smallest tablets around.  The specs are pretty sweet:

  • Intel A110-800MHz processor
  • DDR2 667MHz 1024MB memory
  • 7" WSVGA(1024×600) TFT + TSP Touchscreen display
  • 80 GB HDD
  • Internal DVD Burner
  • Internal GPS receiver
  • Windows Vista Home Premium

  1. My Question of the Day: What’s the smallest notebook with a decent graphics processor (e.g. not Intel Integrated)?

  2. Don’t need to spend $1,499 on this model…

    Only $1,181 at Conics as Kohjinsha SR8 or get the Kohjinsha SX3 with 8.9″ display for $1,085….

    ;-)

  3. But isn’t Vye just a re-brand of Kohjinsha?

  4. Ahem… this machine “popped up” in a story about small laptops in the July edition of Money magazine (a print magazine that “popped up” in my mailbox some time about a month ago).

  5. @Jennifer,

    Yes, Vye is just a re-branded Kohjinsha…

  6. But is it fast enough to run bloatvista. Thats alot of money to spend to find out if Vista works.

  7. The SX3 looks most interesting.

    Kinda like a Libretto u100 with a tablet touch screen.

    What would be perfect is an active digitizer.
