NEC Santa Rosa laptops

NEC will be among the first Japanese vendors to sell laptops based on the Intel Santa Rosa platform. Its offering is the 15.4-inch VersaPro VD, which has the choice of 1.8 or 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo processors, and up to 2GB of RAM, and 120GB of hard drive space. Buyers can select a DVD combo drive or upgrade to a full burner.

Unlike some Santa Rosa laptops, there appears to be no option for 802.11n wireless, and in fact, just 802.11a/b/g is extra. As befits a Japanese laptop though, users can restrict access to their system through either a fingerprint scan or a FeliCa card. Windows Vista Business or XP Professional can be installed; VD laptops will begin shipping later this month starting at 180,500 yen ($1,505). [via Akihabara News]
