Epson's Endeavor laptops may not turn many heads (save for the odd Hello Kitty invasion), but the company's latest at least packs some decent specs, as well as a range of configuration options. On the top end, the 15.4-inch NJ5100Pro packs a 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo T7800 processor, along with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600 or Mobility FireGL V5600 graphics, some Intel Turbo Memory to speed things up, a max 2GB of RAM, and a 250GB hard drive. You can also get your choice of WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) or WXGA+ (1,440 x 900) displays, and your choice of Windows XP or Vista, among other options. Look for it to be available in Japan immediately, with prices starting at ¥149,940 and going up to ¥228,690 (or roughly $1,300 to $2,000).
