versapro vs-7The NEC VersaPro VS-7 blurs the lines between a typical netbook and a higher end ultraportable. On the one hand, it’s thin and light like a netbook, weighing just 1.6 pounds and measuring 0.6 inches thick. It also has a low power 1.84GHz Intel Atom Z540 processor.

On the other hand, Akihabara News reports that it costs about twice as much as a typial netbook and has a case designed to resist up to 330 pounds in pressure.

Akihabara News has published a mini-review of the VersaPro VS-7, and found that the machine was more than capable of handling basic computing tasks including playback of 720p DiVX video. It also did a decent job with PhotoShop CS3. For more info and a bunch of photos, check out the complete, if somewhat short, review at Akihabara News.

  1. Overpriced, eh? Even though it’s half as thick, weighs half as much, and is quite a bit faster than most netbooks? Sounds justified to me.

    I’m certainly intrigued, but I’m one of those who *likes* trackpads.

  2. Weight and size reduction, while improving performance, is a good direction for netbooks to go in, if only battery technology can keep up. They are supposed to be portable after all, and we’re had a year-and-a-half of mostly same-old-same-old.

    -AND- It has a trackpoint with three buttons and no trackpad! I’d like to take this baby for a spin, but there can’t be room for much of a battery in there.
