Mouse Computer's LuvBook J131 kicks it Penryn style

The last we heard from Japan's Mouse Computers, it was offering up a cheap'n'easy path to Merom -- and true to form, it's followed that up with a low-cost ticket to Penryn town, the J131. The 1280x800 13.3-inch unit is pretty basic, as things go -- 120GB drive, 2GB of RAM, and a 1.3 megapixel webcam -- but unlike some other machines on the market, its price is just as stripped-down as its featureset: just ¥119,700 ($1,125). Of course, there's no word on whether we'll ever see this hit our fair shores, but those of you headed to Japan soon should be able to pick this up straight away.
