Hannspree uses two different Intel Pineview processors in the Hannsbook — the Pineview N450 running at 1.66 gigahertz and the N470 running at 1.83 gigahertz. Both feature 512 kilobytes of level 2 cache memory and a 667 megahertz front side bus. The Hannsbook comes with a Tiger Point NM10 chipset and 1 gigabyte of DDR2 memory, as well as either a 160 or 250 gigabyte SATA hard drive.

The Intel Pineview processor in the Hannsbook also includes an integrated GMA3150 graphics processor. It drives the computer’s 10.1-inch diagonal widescreen LED-backlit TFT display with a resolution of 1,024 pixels wide and 600 pixels tall. A typical display generates a 500-to-1 contrast ratio and has a brightness of 200 candelas per square meter.
Like most computers today, the Hannsbook comes standard with stereo audio, speakers and a headphone connection. It also features a digital microphone and a 1.3 megapixel Web camera built into its case.
