Panasonic dips into Santa Rosa notebook waters

updated 01:20 pm EDT, Thu May 10, 2007

Panasonic Y7 Santa Rosa

Panasonic on Thursday launched the Y7A as its own contribution to the second wave of Santa Rosa notebooks. The Japanese developer's first take on the architecture focuses on longevity over performance with a 1.4GHz low-voltage Core 2 Duo that nets up to 7.5 hours of battery life. Intel's new X3100 video and 802.11n chipset also make their way into the transition. The 14-inch system sees upgrades of Panasonic's own, the company says: base memory sees a boost to 1GB of RAM and an 80GB hard disk, with PC Card and SDHC card readers providing hooks for outside storage.

The base system ships with Panasonic's distinctive top-loading DVD burner for the equivalent of $2,227. As is often the case with the company's mainstream PCs outside of the ToughBook, the Y7A is expected to remain in Japan but may see its technology translated to North American models in the future.
