The wild and crazy guys over at Portable Monkey have just got their hands on one of Onkyo's 10.1-inch Sotec C204 netbooks and were cool enough to share thoughts, impressions, and a madcap YouTube video with all of us. Priced at around ¥49,000 ($511), but seen going for less at various online te...

Looking for something a bit more all-in-one than Onkyo's HDC-1L nettop / HTPC? Then you may want to consider the company's new Sotec-branded E702A9 media PC, which keeps things relatively inconspicuous while packing some decent specs all around. That includes a 1080p 21.5-inch display, a Core 2 Duo...

Now this -- this is an interesting character. Part nettop, part HTPC, the Sotec-branded HDC-1L series is a unique mixture of components that are traditionally found in either a diminutive desktop or a media center PC (but rarely both). First and foremost, this little bugger relies on a 1.6GHz Intel...

We took a peek at several of Sotec's latest machines yesterday, and today we've got a 22-inch "Vista-certified" widescreen LCD monitor from the same firm that boasts an HDMI input. Additionally, you'll notice a 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, VGA input, five-millisecond response time, a 1,000:1 contrast...

Japan's Sotec is kicking out a duo a new desktops and a stark white laptop, and while the specifications on the trio aren't anything to phone home about, they could indeed fit the bill if you're budget is tight. The WinBook WH5513P series contains an Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 CPU, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 1...

It's not like we really rely on Sotec to spice things up on the PC front, but we're still a little disappointed in the distinct lack of interestingness going on here in Sotec's new "e-three" series. The HA3000 laptop sports a 1280 x 800 15.4-inch LCD, Windows Vista (Home Basic or Business) and Expr...

Sotec is offering-up the latest in wireless Skype handsets with this, their SKP-001 sold by Comfix. Skype's where the money is for vendors, but rest assured, it's SIP compatible too. That's a good start, and it even operates in the 2.4GHz range like our old friends 802.11b/g. However, WiFi this Skyp...

Japan's Sotec just threw down a couple of Core 2 Duo towers meant for the motherland. The most interesting of the two is the Windows XP Media Center Edition PC Station BJ (pictured) which bundles a 19-inch 1440x900 (WXGA+) display with that 3.7-inch slim (though not that slim) tower sporting Intel'...
