HANNSpree Debuts SN10 Netbook

HANNSpree, an electronic manufacturer best known for its monitors and television sets, has launched a new netbook, the SN10, which joins the masses of Windows-based, Atom powered devices on the market.

The netbook, which will be available exclusively from Carphone Warehouse for £229, has the same feature and specification set as most netbooks; a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB RAM, a 160GB hard disk drive, a 10-inch 1024x600 pixel LED backlit display, Wi-Fi, three USB ports, a card reader and a 1.3-megapixel webcam with a microphone.

Available in two colours, the netbook earns some points for coming with a two year warranty and a free "ultra chic" black carry bag that's apparently a favourite with the organisers of the London Fashion Week.

Still we're not sure that a six hour battery life is good enough nor that the price, £229, is low enough to allow it to compete with the rest of the netbooks.
