kohjinsha sk3

I have to admit, I don’t generally pay that much attention to Kohjinsha computers. The Japanese company rarely releases products in the US, and they tend to be pricier than most netbooks. But the Kohjinsha SK3 looks pretty interesting. This netbook has a 7 inch touchscreen display which can be folded down over the keyboard for use in tablet mode.

The SK3 sports a 1.33GHz Intel Atom CPU, GMA 500 graphics, 1Gb of RAM, and a 60G hard drive. It weighs just 720 grams or about 1.6 pounds, and while it’s saddled with a small 7 inch display, the screen can handle resolutions up to 1024 x 600 pixels. The tablet measures 7.6″ x 5.2″ x 1.2″ and still has room for an ExpressCard/34 slot as well as 2 USB ports, an Ethernet jack, a flash card reader, mic, headphone, and VGA ports.

The Kohjinsha SK3 sells for about $730 in Japan, which may sound like a lot, but by Japanese standards it’s actually not bad. But there is a catch. The computer ships with a 17Whr battery which Kohjinsha claims is good for 3.2 hours. Of course, laptop batteries almost never live up to the manufacturer’s battery life estimates, so you’ll probably be lucky to get 2.5 hours of run time out of the battery.
