I bet you’d agree that just before this, you’d think that MacBook Air the lightest notebook out there. But here is the NEC VersaPro UltraLite. Well, this one is thicker than the Apple MacBook Air, but lighter. Wich one do you choose anyway? Thicker or lighter? Thinner but less lighter? NEC call it “the Type VS” . Its thickness ranges from 15.8mm to 29.9mm, comparing unfavorably to the 19.4mm MacBook Air or the 16.51mm Adamo. But, its 725g weight (about a pound and a half) definitely undercuts the competition, and its three USB slots, Ethernet port, and SD card reader give reasonable connectivity without external adapters. Its 10.6-inch screen has a resolution of 1208 x 768, the CPU is Intel’s 1.86GHz Atom Z540 (the same as found in
the higher-spec version of the Vaio P), 1GB of RAM is on tap, and a 64GB SSD keeps things persistent. Solid specs for sure, and with an asking price of around $1,000 it should be reasonably solid value when it hits Japanese retailers in July. Just don’t go wasting your summer waiting for these to appear near you!!!
