It looks like Japan's Mouse Computer is finally adding a netbook to its vast LuvBook laptop empire, with the 10-inch LuvBook U100 now set for release in its home country. Coincidentally, that is the very same model number as the 10-inch MSI Wind and, even more amazingly, the two laptops share exactly the same specs (and appearance). That includes a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and Windows XP for an OS. The price demands a slight premium over the Wind, however, with this one setting you back ¥59,800, or about $570.
