NEC gets Lavie Light netbook out the door

Japanese electronics company NEC is introducing an 8.9 inch netbook called Lavie Light. There’s one thing this netbook isn’t — light on the pocket. If the SRP of 65,000 yen is correct, that translates to about Php31,000.

The NEC Lavie Light isn’t that any special as well — specs look kinda standard too.


8.9″ display screen (1024×600 pixels)
Intel Atom 1.6GHz N270
1GB RAM PC-4200
WiFi 802.11 b/g
1.3 MP webcam
3 USB 2.0 ports
SD Card reader
2.6 hours battery life
Windows XP Home

I guess aside from the Philippines and Taiwan, the netbooks hasn’t really caught on with other countries. Some OEMs like Asus and Lenovo even admit that Philippines and Taiwan are their biggest market so far (Japan is a strong 3rd I heard). I guess that’s why most models come out earlier here than in the US (see NEC press release).
