Panasonic’s Let’s Note line of laptops are tiny, powerful, and sadly unavailable in the US or Europe. But if you happen to be in Japan, soon you’ll be able to pick up Panasonic’s new 10.1 inch, 12.1 inch, or 14 inch laptops powered by Intel Kaby Lake processors.

Most of the new notebooks will be available in Japan starting October 14th, although a special 20th anniversary Let’s Note laptop is also coming November 11th.
