It's no secret that Japanese consumer electronics companies are having a tough time competing right now (damn Yen). Now Sharp becomes the latest casualty with the announcement that it will exit the cut-throat personal computer business to focus on market segments where it can be profitable. You kno

We've seen a bit of Sharp's Mebius netbook around here -- and most of our attention has been focused on that LCD trackpad (a 4-inch optical-touchscreen) -- but now it's been unboxed on video for all to wonder at. This 1.6GHZ Intel Atom N270-boasting baby has a 10.1-inch display (1,024 x 600), 1GB o

Akihabara News was on-site for the unveiling of Sharp's Mebius netbook with combo LCD display and trackpad. Fortunately, they did the world a favor and snagged video (posted after the break) of the 854 x 480 pixel LCD in action. Sure, the icons and apps demonstrated are all a bit lame but the idea

And you thought Apple's button-less \"glass trackpad\" was hot stuff. Sharp has just let loose details on its thoroughly Japanese Mebius PC-NJ70A, which sadly packs an exceptionally boring list of internal components but manages to stay interesting with a decidedly unorthodox trackpad. As you can see

At first glance, Sharp's blindingly white PC-FW50X reminds us a lot of the PC-CW50T, but thankfully, the innards have improved somewhat since last summer. Packed within the aforesaid machine (¥150,000; $1,467) is a 15.4-inch WXGA (1,280 x 800) panel, 2GHz Mobile Sempron 3600+ processor, 2GB of

Right on schedule, Sharp is updating its Mebius laptop line once again, and this time its AMD getting all the love.

With all the Santa Rosa lovin' that's been going on of late, it's easy to overlook the AMD-powered bunch, but Sharp's latest Mebius shuns the more popular Intel chip and relies on a 1.6GHz Sempron 3400+ CPU instead. Additionally, this 14.1-inch machine sports a WXGA panel, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM, AT

NEC isn't the only game in town updating its laptop line with Vista pre-installed, as Sharp is revamping its long-standing Mebius lineup to include Microsoft's forthcoming OS as well as a few new pieces of hardware to boot. The 15.4-inch PC-WT70S houses a 1.6GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 processor, 1,280 x 8

What's this, today Sharp announced a single new computer!? Not the 40-plus from Sony, or 26 from NEC, or even paltry 5-and-change from Toshiba, just one, the Mebius PC-AE50M. Not only are they bucking the shotgun announcement trend engulfing us, the new Mebius also loads-up a non-Core Duo, 1.80GHz
