NEC launches two new LaVie Light netbooks

NEC Japan is set to add two new netbooks to its LaVie series, and these additions rightfully deserve the “Light” suffix as NEC did a good job in keeping the weight low. Unfortunately, other than that the BL100 and the BL300/310/350 as they’re called, don’t bring anything impressive to the table,

The BL100 comes with Atom N270 at 1.60GHz, a 10.1-inch LCD, webcamera, 1GB of RAM and EEE802.11b/g WiFi. It weighs only 1.07kg, most likely courtesy of the 16GB SSD and will be available in white only at a $520 price point.

The BL300 series comes with the same LCD panel but the CPU in question is the Atom N280 at 1.66GHz. It comes with 1GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, webcamera, IEEE802.11n Draft 2.0 / IEEE802.11b/g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR. It seems that the only difference between the BL300/BL310 and the BL350 is the battery and thus the weight, as the BL300/BL310 weighs 1.14kg and runs 4.2 hours on a single charge whereas the BL350 weighs 1.32kg and is capable of 7.4 hours on a single charge. BL300-series will come in three colors: red, white and black.

The BL310 comes with preinstalled Microsoft Office and all the models will run on Windows XP. The BL350 and BL310 are priced at $725 whereas the BL300 stands at $625. The devices should be available in Japan as of June 4th, but unfortunately there’s no word on availability or pricing outside of Japan yet.
