The 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.
