The ViewSonic ViewBook Pro

The top of the notebook has the ViewSonic logo and nothing else. The machine is finished in metallic silver that is flat, offering good looks and much less smudges and fingerprints than the glossy notebooks I typically see.

The bottom of the notebook has the cooling grates we expect to see and the battery. The large screw under the battery releases the modular bay device.

This is a close-up of the screw you rotate with a coin or screwdriver to release whatever you happen to have in the modular bay at the time.

The left side profile gives you an idea of just how thin the ViewSonic ViewBook Pro is. This side has the AC port, Ethernet, VGA out, HDMI out, expansion card slot and a memory card reader.

The keyboard is very nice with some rather odd looking keys. The key tops are a bit smaller than the base to provide more room between the keys. Beneath the keyboard are the track pad and the fingerprint reader.

The screen is a glossy 13.3-inch unit with LED backlighting.

The right side of the ViewSonic ViewBook Pro has headphone and mic ports, two USB ports and the modular bay with the optical drive in this picture. You can put an extra battery in this bay or a blank to reduce weight a bit.

The front edge of the notebook is thin and has three indicator LEDs on the left corner.

The back of the machine has nothing to see but shiny hinges for the screen.

These three devices are the modular units you can put into the modular bay. On the far left, you have the DVD burner, while the middle is the second battery and the far right is the blank.
