Epson's budget-minded Endeavor NJ1000 laptop

Epson's busted out a new laptop for the low end set, loading up its Endeavor NJ1000 with yesterday's specs to keep the price down -- and offering a few upgrade options for those wanting something a tad more respectable. Opting for the base model, however, will net you the most basic of basic laptops, with 15-inch XGA display, Celeron M 410 processor, 256MB of RAM, a 40GB hard drive, and a plain old CD-ROM drive -- all for just 64,890 Yen (about $550). If you're in an upgrading mood, you can max out the system (for a price) with a Core 2 Duo T5500 processor, 160GB hard drive, 2GB of RAM, and a DVD burner. A white model is also available although, and reversing the trend, it's the one that'll cost you a few extra Yen in this case.
