Sharp Mebius Notebooks

Sharp on Friday made a sweeping update to its Mebius notebooks with a trio of new 15.4-inch models based on AMD chips. Leading the charge is the WT70T: the system is fast enough for Vista Home Premium with a dual-core 1.6GHZ Turion 64 X2, 1GB of memory, and a 100GB hard disk backed by a DVD rewriter. It should also be accompanied by the Vista Home Basic-friendly WE50T and WE40T, each of which relies on a less costly single-core 1.8GHz Sempron, 512MB of memory, and 80GB of hard drive storage and are separated only by the inclusion of Office 2007 Personal with the WE50T.

The most basic Mebius versions are due first in April and will sell for $1,179 (WE50T) and $1,010 (WE40T) respectively in their native Japan. The highest-performing WT70T will be available by mid-May at $1,599. Releases in other areas weren't mentioned during the announcement.
