Reviews for the Yukyung Viliv S7

60% Viliv S7 Premium
Source: Laptop Mag English version
This convertible scores high on portability and endurance, but its touchscreen is frustrating to use. The $799 Viliv S7 Premium is more than $350 more expensive than most netbooks, and a few dollars above some full-size ultraportable notebooks. The higher price does come with benefits, including portability, a good display size, and long battery life. The addition of a physical keyboard makes the S7 more usable than the S5, but both key and touch input are half-baked. Nevertheless, if you want a touchscreen PC you can take anywhere, the S7 is worth a look.

70% Yukyung Viliv S7 (Atom Z520 1.33GHz, 1GB RAM, 32GB SSD, XP Home, 3G)
Source: CNet English version
This may be known as the era of Netbooks, but sooner or later we'll be moving beyond it, into something more evolutionary. More portable and flexible devices will push the boundaries of what we consider to be possible in computing. While UMPCs and swivel-screen tablet devices have existed for years, newer iterations such as the Asus T91 and the Yukung Viliv S7 have begun to merge them with the popular Atom-powered Netbook. The Viliv S7's small size and Netbook/tablet hybrid design are appealing, but its high price is illogical in a world of inexpensive portables.

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).


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

It is a small display format for smartphones. You shouldn't be severely defective in vision, and you won't see much detail on the screen and only have a small resolution available. For that, the device should be small and handy, easy to transport.

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