Have I mentioned how much I’m loving this whole race to the bottom thing? The Asus Eee PC has shown that there’s a huge demand for low cost ultraportables, and the latest company to throw their hat in the ring is Japan’s Kohjinsha, which plans to release not just a tiny laptop, but a tiny table PC.

The Register reports that the Kohjinsha SCC (or Small, Cheap Computers) features the following specs:

  • 500MHz AMD Geode LX800 CPU
  • 512MB RAM
  • 80GB hard drive
  • Windows XP Home Edition (not Tablet edition)
  • 7 inch 800 x 480 displays
  • 802.11b/g
  • Ethernet
  • 2 USB ports
  • 3-in-1 memory card reader
  • CF reader
  • VGA output
  • Dimensions: 218 x 163 x 25.4mm
  • Weight: 945 grams

The Kohjinsha SCC will come in two models, a ¥59,800 (or about $592 US) version and a ¥79,800 ($780) version that includes Office 2007 personal edition.

  1. My girlfriend’s dad just got one in Japan. It’s really nice: I don’t know much about this processor, but it runs XP and Office and everything else he’s got just fine. I can say that the screen isn’t super clear, but it’s good enough. It’s not a tablet, but the pseudo-tablet mode is really nice for web surfing, and has convenient scroll buttons in addition to the thumb mouse. Overall it blows the eee 701 away.

  2. After reading the source article, I don’t think this is actually a tablet PC… just an eee pc competitor with a swivel mounted screen. I suppose this makes it an ideal ebook companion, but I was really hoping it was a true tablet.
