NEC VersaPro UltraLite VS: wafer-thin netbook for recession-busting price

May 26, 2009 at 3:13 pm

NEC VersaPro UltraLite VSNEC has announced one of the thinnest and lightest 10-inch netbooks that I’ve seen. The VersaPro UlraLite VS weighs just 725g and is only 19.4mm (0.76”) at its thickest point. It also comes with some impressive tech under the hood with a 1.86GHz Z540 Atom CPU, GMA 500 graphics, 64GB sold-state drive and a high resolution 10.6-inch display with 1280 x 768 pixels.

To make sure this tech can fit into its slender chassis, the keyboard sits at the bottom and this means there is no room for a touchpad. Instead you’ll find a trackpoint to navigate, which I prefer anyway. You’ll also find that they’ve managed to squeeze in three USB ports, Ethernet and Wi-Fi (b/g). The standard battery should last you 4.7 hours with the larger capacity battery lasting 9.4 hours.

There are some very high performance components in the NEC VersaPro, all packaged in an extremely skinny case. However, as you may have guessed this doesn’t come cheap, not at all. It is now on pre-order in Japan for 99,750 Yen ($1051, €754, £662). However, once it hits retails in June the price will increase to an eye-watering 176,000 Yen ($1,858, €1,333, £1,171). Now if that isn’t a pre-order incentive I don’t know what is!

    I don’t see any sign of a webcam – am I missing something? Or it doesn’t have one in the first place?
