Originally scheduled for a September launch under the VersaPro type VT moniker, NEC's LaVie Touch Windows 7 tablet is finally hitting the Japanese market next week. Alas, there are still no plans on an international release for this 10.1-inch Atom Z670-powered device, but at CEATEC we were lucky...

If you've been looking in vain for the right Windows tablet, you might want to have a gander at NEC's VersaPro VK15V/TM-C, a pad that looks like the slate it is, but packs some netbook-like specs -- namely, a 1.5GHz Intel Atom Z670 processor, Win 7 Professional, 2GB of RAM, HDMI-out, and an SDH...

Like your computers to be all-business and only available in Japan? Then you might want to take a gander at NEC's latest duo, which includes the thin-and-light VersaPro UltraLite VB laptop, and the Mate MG all-in-one desktop (pictured after the break). Both of those are fairly mid-range when it com...

Another challenger enters the ultrathin notebook arena. This time it's NEC, prepping its lightest and daintiest edition of the UltraLite line, the Type VS. Its thickness ranges from 15.8mm to 29.9mm, comparing unfavorably to the 19.4mm MacBook Air or the 16.51mm Adamo. But, its 725g weight (about a...

Personally, we think the PowerMate P4000 and P6000 all-in-one machines are entirely more striking than the abominable NEC Mate MF all-in-one, but maybe we'd feel otherwise seeing it in person. All that aside, the PC-in-a-monitor includes a 17-inch panel (1,280 x 1,024 resolution), 2GHz Intel Celero...

Just in case it wasn't official enough already, mega-corps have ridden this green bandwagon way too far. Like, the wheels have fallen clean off. Nevertheless, NEC is hoping to guilt you into picking up its VersaPro VE with the dedicated "ECO button," which seems to act as a macro for activating the...

NEC's latest VersaPro UltraLite Type VC won't appeal to any hardcore gamers or mobile movie cutters, but the casual joe (or jane) will likely find its hardware plenty capable of handling those everyday tasks. What's more is that this sucka claims a whopping 14.5-hours of life if you utilize the ext...

NEC has an update to their rugged, UltraLite series of laptops in the chute with this, the VersaPro VC. In what should be an oxymoron of features, these ultra-lightweights start at just 970-grams (2.14-pounds) yet are rugged enough to withstand up to 150-kg of pressure to the case. The 12.1-inch l...

It's not quite specced to kill, but NEC's new VersaPro YV20 laptop doesn't look too shabby, and it's a BTO unit, so you can always flesh out the spec sheet if need be. What counts is the 2GHz Core 2 Duo T7200 processor option, and of course the Radeon Xpress 1250 graphics shouldn't do much harm....
