BenQ Joybook R41E targets the young key-pounding set

Cyrus Farivar

BenQ has just come out with a new model in its Joybook R series, aimed squarely at "young professionals," leaving all those folks that we know left sadly clutching yesterday's laptops. The new Joybook R41E comes configurable with options like an Intel Celeron M Processor 420 and above, "genuine" Windows XP Home / Professional, up to 2GB of RAM, a 60 - 120GB SATA drive, dual-layer DVD burner, four USB 2.0 ports, Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi, a 14-inch 1280 x 800 screen decked out with "Display Brilliance Enhancement Film," and a keyboard so durable that it can withstand "8 million keystrokes," which, believe it or not is really not all that incredibly much. There's no word on pricing or availability -- but a soon-ish ship date and a low price would surely bring a little bit more joy into the lives of those Taiwanese yuppies well-to-do enough to land one.
