Back when I was a kid, the most interesting technology I was able to reach wasn't much - my father's stereo (Japanese made, it was a Casio or a Sharp, I can't really remember that), my uncle's boombox, and my best friend's pickup. The good part of this is that most of them worked flawlessly for a few decades, with my uncle's boombox still rockin' after over 30 years since its manufacture. I would really like to see a working 1st gen iPod in 2030...but let's get to the point now, shall we?
So, we're talking about another Atom-based netbook. What's so special about it? If you didn't get it by looking at the image above, then let me tell you this - the Sharp Mebius NJ70A features a 10.1 inch wide display with a 1024X600 pixels resolution, as well as a secondary 4 inch display. More than that, we're talking about a touchpad display, having no less than 854x480 resolution!
Available for $999, the Sharp Mebius NJ70A also comes with 1GB of memory, of which 256MB are shared with the integrated graphics chip, 160GB hard disk drive, 802.11b/g and Bluetooth connectivity, but I think the OS was an extremely bad choice, because running Windows Vista Home Basic on a computer with less than 1GB of memory doesn't look like a bright idea to me.
