NEC’s newest ultrabook features a big screen… and a small case. The NEC LaVie X measures just 0.5 inches thick, but sports a spacious 15.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display.
The ultrabook is expected to go on sale in Japan toward the end of December. Like most NEC laptops, I’d be surprised if the LaVie X was widely sold outside of Japan, where it will sell for north of $2100.
The notebook has an Intel Core i7-3517U processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 256GB solid state disk and runs Windows 8. NEC says the LaVie X will get up to 7 hours of battery life, charges in just 1 hour, and resumes from sleep in about 2 seconds.
It’s not just thin. It’s also pretty light for a 15.6 inch notebook, weighing about 3.5 pounds.
The notebook features WiFi, Bluetooth, HDMI, USB 3.0 and SDXC ports.
