BenQ Joybook Lite T131

BenQ recently announced the upcoming release of its ultra-portable netbook, the 13.3-inch Joybook Lite T131. Weighing in at just under 4lbs, the 13.3-inch T131 sports a 1.6GHz AMD Sempron 200U processor based on the same platform as the Athlon Neo and which should give performance better than netbooks without a major increase in bulk. A minimum of 1GB of RAM is onboard, as is an ATI Mobility Radeon X1270 graphics chipset that can drive HD video playback. The standard 250GB hard drive -- a 320GB drive is an option -- comes preloaded with Windows Vista Home Basic.

For video conferencing, there is a 1.3-megapixel webcam and a microphone, along with HD audio and VoIP support. There is noise suppression and echo cancellation software integrated as well. The T131 has a built-in SD/MMC card reader, two USB ports, an Ethernet port, a VGA output and an ExpressCard slot. Power comes from a six-cell lithium-ion battery, which is said to provide three hours of runtime.

The Joybook Lite T131 will launch in China later this month, though pricing and release dates in other markets have not been released.
