Hannspree dips into netbooks for the US

updated 08:20 am EDT, Thu August 20, 2009

Hannspree HannsNote US

Hannspree decided to veer away from its focus on displays in the US by launching the HannsNote netbook in the country. The 10-inch PC clings tightly to the common netbook formula of a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive and Windows XP but comes stock with a six-cell battery that gives the system as much as five hours of battery life where many netbooks still use three-cell packs. The inclusion of a 1.3-megapixel webcam, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth as standard also set it slightly above the most ubiquitous systems of its class.

The HannsNote should be available today in the US but is more expensive than most rivals at $380; no explanation is given for the price other than a bundled sleeve and cleaning cloth.
