Reviews for the Yukyung Viliv N5

Viliv N5 UMPC – Full Review
Source: UMPC Portal English
Thanks to the accurate mouse pointer, the N5 works well to get around many of the issues associated with using touchscreens with Windows operating systems. A fast SSD and 1GB RAM helps to speed up the experience too. Windows 7 Home Starter seems to work without any hitches at all. Battery life isn’t the best for the weight but at about 4 hours, it’s a good balance for a device with a full keyboard weighing just 400gm/14 oz.

60% Viliv N5

With its comfortable keyboard, gorgeous design, colorful screen, strong battery life, and snappy app opens and video playback, the N5 makes a compelling argument for ultramobile PCs. You can visit any Flash-enabled web site (even Hulu) and use your favorite desktop applications, from Hootsuite for tweeting to Microsoft Office to a full browser on a device that fits in your pocket. But for $649, we wish that the N5 had a better webcam, a video-out option, and longer battery life. If you can live with these trade-offs, this UMPC is worth a look.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip on the UL11L, US15L, and US15W chipsets with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of low clock rates (100-200 MHz UL11L - US15) and only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z520:

Power efficient single core CPU with a very low performance. Offers more features (power saving, VT-x) than the N series Atoms.

4.8": » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Yukyung: Yukyung Technologies Corporation is a Corean company, founded 1999. Their mini laptops are branded by the name "viliv".


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
