Jenn over at Pocketables got a chance to review the Kohjinsha SC3 ultraportable. For those of you unfamiliar with the Kohjinsha brand, you’re not alone. The company has been quietly manufacturing tiny laptops for a while now, though.
The SC3 came outfitted with a 1.33GHz Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, Vista Home Premium, 60GB hard drive, 7-inch-touchscreen at 1024×600, built-in GPS, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, and the whole shebang only weighs 1.76 pounds.
Jenn called the SC3 “significantly smaller than the Asus Eee PC, HTC Shift, Samsung Q1 Ultra, older Kohjinsha devices, and any other 7-inch UMPC/handtop out there.”
So it’s definitely small, yes? But how does it perform? Jenn says…
“Keeping in mind that my review unit has 2GB of memory installed, Vista Home Premium SP1 runs extremely well on the 1.33GHz Atom processor. I’d even go so far as to say that it’s downright zippy…I’ve experienced no disk thrashing, lagging, or slow-loading menu items and icons.”
Not bad. We might have a dark horse on our hands here. The SC3 can be purchased from importers (Conics, for example) starting at around $900.
