Onkyo Sotec C204 netbooks

Normally known for home theaters, Onkyo has announced the release of three new netbook PCs under the Sotec brand that make up the C204 series. All of the 10-inch models are powered by Intel's 1.6GHz Atom N270 CPU on an Intel 945GSE Express mainboard and have 1GB of RAM. Relatively rare in the category, each uses a 32GB solid-state drive as standard rather than the rotating disks or smaller solid-state drives of rivals. Making the choice lets Onkyo drop the weight to just 2.1 pounds and slim the notebooks down to 0.9 inches thick.

Wi-Fi is integrated, as is a 1.3-megapixel camera. VGA video output and Ethernet connection come via a USB adapter. The C204 netbooks will begin shipping at the end of May in Japan, with prices starting at the equivalent of $530 with tax included. [via Akihabara]
