The BenQ Joybook Lite U121 Eco is an 11.6-inch netbook. The Eco part of the name refers to the fact that around 25 percent of the netbook uses recycled materials and this even extends to the packaging materials used. The U121 has the option of hybrid (HDD/SDD) storage. It also has a quick charge facility that allows you to charge 80 percent of the 6-cell battery in just 1 hour. On a fully charged basis, the battery will be good for 8 hours.
The guys at NetbookNews already had a quick preview of the unit last month but are now able to do a full unboxing. Sascha felt that keyboard was well made, but the tiny touchpad was a disappointment. There is also a sim card slot that makes it ready for 3G use. You can check out the full video after the jump.
