I’ve gotten so used to writing phrases like “virtually ever major computer maker besides Sony and Apple have released a netbook,” that I’m always a bit surprised when a company I’ve heard of but completely forgotten about decides to pump one out. With that in mind, today’s netbook announcement is brought to you by NEC.

The NEC LaVie Light has all the usual specs you’d expect from a netbook, including a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, an 8.9 inch display, a 160G HDD, and 1GB of memory.

The netbook has 802.11b/g WiFi, 3 USB ports, a 1.3MP camera, and an SD card slot. It measures 9.8″ x 6.9″ x 1.4″ or 250mm x 176.5mm x 36.5mm and weighs 2.6 pounds or 1.17kg. Oh yeah, and it’s kind of ugly. But if you like the boxy look, I guess there’s no accounting for taste.
