NEC VersaPro UltraLite Type VC Laptop Runs More Than 14 Hours Cordless
The latest novelty in the NEC range of laptops, VersaPro UltraLite Type VC, is unlikely to attract the attention of avid gamers or fans of watching high-quality video on a mobile PC, but as a workhorse it has an undeniable merit.
The fact is that the manufacturer claims up to 14.5 (!) hours of battery life, of course, with a high-capacity battery.
NEC managed to achieve this using a low-voltage processor Intel Core 2 Duo U7500 (1.06 GHz), Intel 945GMS chipset, 1 GB DDR2 memory, 40 GB hard disk. The model is equipped with a 12.1-inch XGA-display.
The novelty turned out to be very compact (217 x 268 x 27 mm) and light (958 grams with a standard battery). Unfortunately, it is not reported how these parameters will change if the user needs maximum autonomy.
The VersaPro UltraLite Type VC is priced at $ 2,260 in the Japanese market where it debuted.
