The ViewSonic VNB141 is the character actor of the notebook world. The machine works ok and is decent at what it does, but it blends into the background and is simply forgettable. The best thing you can say about the machine is that it's lightweight and easy to take on the road with you and battery life is decent.
If the machine were about $200 cheaper, I would be much more excited about it. As it is, the ViewSonic VNB141 is a middle of the road notebook with a price that can buy you a superb machine.
