Epson's low-cost laptop

Though performance tends to receive most of the attention in the electronics industry, the foremost concern for most shoppers is saving money; Epson is obliging with the Endeavor NJ2050, which can be priced as low as 69,930 yen ($590), less than some individual parts in modern desktops. The tradeoff comes in the form of severely reduced specifications, such as 1.73GHz Celeron processor, a 40GB hard drive, and 256MB of RAM.

It also uses a CD-ROM reader instead of a DVD burner, and Windows XP Home instead of a more robust OS. Users can however opt to upgrade to Vista for 79,380 yen ($670), and pay still more for features such as a Core 2 Duo processor. As with other Epson laptops, the NJ2050 is not expected to come to North America. [via Akihabara News]
