Four new NEC LaVie laptops

The Japanese branch of NEC has expanded its LaVie series of laptops with upgrades to four different lines. The most powerful of the group is the 15.4-inch LaVie C, which supports WXGA+ resolution, and can be configured with several high-end components including a Blu-Ray player, a 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor and a 512MB Radeon X1600 video card. An HDMI output is provided as well.

From there performance begins to drop dramatically, aiming at a more mainstream market. The L Advanced Type is limited to a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo and Radeon Xpress 1250 graphics; the J falls to a 1GHz Core 2 Duo, and the L Basic Type uses a Celeron M430 or Sempron 3400+ CPU, combined with a Radeon Xpress 200M. NEC does not sell its LaVie systems in the United States, although they may presage changes in the company's overall strategy. [via Akihabara News]
