NEC is updating its line of LaVie Light netbooks with some shiny new Intel Atom Pineview processors. On the outside, the ntoebooks look a lot like the company’s earlier models. But on the inside they pack 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processors and GMA 3150 graphics.

The NEC BL530/WH6B has a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. This model runs Windows 7 Home premium and has a 7.6 hour battery. It weighs about 3 pounds.

NEC has a slightly cheaper model called the BL350/WD which has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel screen, 1GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and Windows 7 Starter Edition. This model has a 4.1 hour battery and weighs 2.6 pounds.

It looks like there will alo be BL340, BL330, and BL310 models, but either Google Translate is failing me, or PC Watch doesn’t make it entirely clear how each of these models differs from the others.

NEC is also launching a new line of LaVie M thin and light laptops with CULV processors.

  1. The Asus 1005PE sets the benchmark, ie it gives over 10 hours battery life.

    Its hard to overlook the Asus seriously and consider other models unless they are substantially cheaper.
