NEC LaVie Light hits netbook scene with a whimper

We're so very over this spec sheet: 8.9-inch 1024 x 600 LCD, 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 160GB HDD, 1GB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi, SD slot, 1.3 megapixel webcam, XP Home. We could recite that song of the netbook in our sleep, and the Japan-bound LaVie Light doesn't stray a note. NEC even did us the special honor of placing the mouse buttons on either side of the trackpad, placing it in the upper echelon of lazybooks, and seems to have fended off any industrial designers that might be lurking around the company with great success. Akihabara News says the price is "really similar to all Netbook already put on the market," which is probably the least surprising statement we've heard all week.
