DosPara keeps 'em coming, throws down Prime Note Helios and Chronos

Those DosPara kids have been pretty busy of late, and it doesn't look like they're slowing down their release schedule just yet. Today they're showing off a pair of new laptops, the Prime Note Helios DN and Prime Note Chronos IB. Helios (pictured) hogs the spec spotlight, with bragging rights to a Core 2 Duo T5500 pro, 1GB of RAM, 100GB SATA HDD, GeForce Go 7600 with 512MB of RAM, dual-layer DVD burning and a 2 megapixel webcam. On the fancy end, the laptop includes a 17-inch display running at 1680 x 1050, along with HDMI and eSATA ports for doing media tasks up right. Best of all, the $1,626-ish USD pricetag on this thing isn't at all hard to swallow for what you're getting. However, if that's still a bit too steep, you might dig the Chronos IB, which sports a 15.4-inch 1280 x 800 display, integrated graphics, and other various spec hits, but still manages some fancy stuff like ExpressCard/54 (which is featured in the Helios as well) and a webcam for its lovable $1,118-ish USD pricetag. The laptops weigh 8.7 and 6.1 pounds, respectively, and should both be hitting Japan on January 4th next year. Keep reading to spy the Chronos.
