lavie light lui

NEC has introduced yet another netbook, the LaVie Light Lui. Based on the fact that I have yet to see a single NEC netbook hit US shores to date, I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that this one might hit Asia and/or Europe, but probably not US shores.

But it’s too bad. Because this looks like the best NEC netbok to date. It sports a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N280 CPU, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB hard drive, as you’d expect from a netbook running Windows XP Home. It also has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 1.3MP webcam. But it also has a battery which NEC claims is good for 8.5 hours. If the battery lives up to the hype, that would certainly make it one of the longest lasting NEC netbooks, and it would rank up there with the Toshiba Mini NB205 and Asus Eee PC 1000HE or 1005HA for having on of the best batteries around.

NEC designed the netbook to work with its Lui remote desktop system, which means you can login to a Lui home server with the LaVie Light Lui.

  1. I wouldn’t call it a new netbook. It’s just a LUI rebranding of their own (NEC) Lavie Light netbook that came out last month. Battery actually lasts 5.5 hours.
