Chinese OEM Tongfong and VIA have announced the latest Via Nano based ultraportable, the Tongfong S30A. It’s just 33mm thick and weighs 1.4kg, with a 13.3-inch display, integrated DVD burner and 2GB of RAM. It uses the VIA 1.3GHz Nano U2250 processor with the unified VIA VX800 MSP and discrete S3 Graphics Chrome 435 ULP graphics, making a great HD-capable machine.
There’s room for a 2.5-inch SATA hard-drive, WiFi b/g and 10/100 ethernet, plus a 4-in-1 card reader, ExpressCard slot, HDMI and VGA ports along with two USB 2.0 ports. The standard battery is a six-cell, but it can be upgraded by removing the DVD burner and slotting in an optional three-cell secondary.
