NEC is updating its line of 2-in-1 Windows tablets with a new model called the NEC Hybrid Standard. It’s a tablet with an 11.6 inch display, an Intel Core M processor, and a detachable keyboard dock that lets you use the computer as a notebook.

The tablet has a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a microSDXC card slot, micro HDMI output, a USB 3.0 port, and a USB 2.0 port. It weighs about 1.8 pounds.

An entry-level model features an 800 MHz Intel Core M-5Y10c processor, while a higher-priced version has a 1.2 GHz Core M-5Y71 chip and a digital pen.

Neither model is particularly cheap, with Japanese prices starting at around 154,800 yen (nearly $1300 US), but the prices includes taxes.

Like most recent NEC computers, the Hybrid Standard will be available exclusively in Japan when it launches in mid-May. But it’s not impossible that we could see this 2-in-1 in other markets in the future: you know that Lenovo LaVie Z thin and light computer that launched recently? It’s basically a rebranded NEC LaVie Hybrid Zero.

  1. Hopefully they get the specs right this time, unlike the LaVie Z 360.
