Japan's Sotec is kicking out a duo a new desktops and a stark white laptop, and while the specifications on the trio aren't anything to phone home about, they could indeed fit the bill if you're budget is tight. The WinBook WH5513P series contains an Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 120GB hard drive, a 15.4-inch 1,280 x 800 resolution LCD, and a few hot keys to give you one-touch access to your email and the internet. Additionally, you'll find a dual-layer DVD writer, 802.11a/b/g, and Windows Vista running the show. On the desktop front (shown after the jump), the PC Station BJ series sports a slim, compact form factor, an Intel Celeron D, Pentium 4, or Core 2 Duo E4300 depending on model, up to 1GB of DDR2 RAM, between 250GB and 320GB of HDD space, a dual-layer DVD burner, Windows Vista, and a number of matching displays between 17- and 22-inches. The PC Station BX micro-tower includes Intel's E4300 or E6320 Core 2 Duo CPU, Vista, a gig of RAM, integrated Intel graphics, and a PCI-Express slot. All three units are slated to ship later this week, and while prices vary depending on configuration, none of them are apt to break the bank.
