the love. The 15.4-inch trio of machines include Windows Vista, a WXGA panel, ATI's Radeon Xpress 1100 graphics set, between 1GB and 2GB of RAM, a 120GB SATA drive, dual-layer DVD writer, Ethernet, WiFi

On the low-end, the Sempron 3400+ powered PC-WE40V will ring up at ¥130,000 ($1,147), while the mid-range PC-WE50V gets the same CPU as well as Office 2007 for ¥150,000 ($1,324). The PC-WT70V, however, gets blessed with a Turion 64 X2 TL-52 and goes for ¥180,000 ($1,589).
