Epson has launched Na04mini netbooks in the Japanese market. This netbook sports Intel Atom N550 dual core processor (1.5GHz clock speed) and comes with standard netbook specs that include a 10.1 inch WSVGA display, 250GB hard disk drive, 1GB RAM, and Intel NM10 chipset.
Like other netbooks in the market, it runs Windows 7 Starter as its operating system and comes with 3x USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet and 802.11n Wi-Fi. However, you do get an SDCX compatible card slot and an option to get it with a 64GB solid state drive.
The netbook comes with a 6-cell battery rated to give you 6.1 hours of runtime on a single charge. It will be up on sale in Japan for a base price of 37,800 Yen (~460 dollars).
Along with Na04Mini netbook, Epson has launched a nettop, NP15 that features a (single core) Atom D515 1.8GHz processor, 2GB RAM and 250GB hard disk. Just like other nettops, it comes with a lot of USB ports (sorry, there are no USB 3.0 ports). In NP15, you will find 6x USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, mini D-Sub15 pin, headphone and microphone jack.
The nettop can be mounted behind the monitor if you prefer minimalism (like me). It is now on sale for 29,820 Yen (~360 dollars)
