NEC introduces wild new ValueStar, LaVie and LaVie Light models

NEC is back on the scene with a clutch of new products, including a couple all-in-ones, some notebooks and a color refresh for the LaVie Light. Standing in stark contrast to the new Viewsonic all-in-ones, the two additions to the ValueStar line pack a little heat, with Intel Core and AMD Athlon processors, generous helpings of memory and storage, and features like Blu-ray and digital TV tuners that are sure to amuse and titillate. The new LaVie notebooks run the gamut from 13.3- to 16-inch, with either Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon processors. In addition to the usual storage and memory options, the 13.3-inch model sports an LED that can be configured by the user to display either the time or a line of text. Last but not least, fans of the boxy LaVie Light netbook have a couple more color options -- aside from the original black or white, they've thrown pink and blue into the mix. Be sure to check out the additional images and detailed specs after the break.
