These are pretty much exclusively for the Japanese market, but it somehow feels wrong not to at least mention that ten other new Core 2 Duo lappies were announced today from Tsukomo, PC-Koubou (and its sub-brand, Faith), and Mouse Computer. Click on for all the gory details.


From eX. comes four versions of the NC170J (pictured above is the N170J-702E/802E, N170J-301E/401E is pictured at the top of this post):

  • The N170J-301E comes with a 1.66Ghz Core 2 Duo T5500 processor, a paltry 256M of RAM (expandable to 2GB), a 40GB hard drive, Intel 945GM Express chipset, an SD/MMC/MemoryStick Pro card reader, and a 17-inch, 1,440 x 900 pixel LCD.
  • The N170J-401E is basically the same, just with a 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo T5600 processor, a slightly more acceptable 512MB of RAM (also expandable to 2GB), and an 80GB hard drive.
  • The N170J-702E sports a 1.66GHz Core 2 Duo T5500 processor, 1GB of RAM (expandable to 2GB), 80GB hard drive, optional GeForce Go 7900 GTX video card (at least we think it's optional), a dual-layer DVD+-R drive, an SD/MMC/MemoryStick Pro card reader, and a 17-inch, 1,920 x 1200 pixel LCD.
  • THe N170J-802E is their highest-end model, this bad boy comes with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo T7200 processor, a Quadro FX 2500M video card, an 80GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM (expandable to 2GB), an SD/MMC/MemoryStick Pro card reader, and a 17-inch, 1,920 x 1200 pixel LCD.
