Epson’s Endeavor Na14S mini-notebook now available in Japan
The Japanese technology corporation Epson, which is known for its printers, has reportedly introduced another Endeavor netbook, called Na14S. The device is now available in the manufacturer’s home country of Japan (it is still unknown if the mini-laptop will get a North American release) for 32,580 Yen (roughly $425).
According to the maker, this is a “special limited edition model” and it will be equipped with a low-power consumption Intel Atom N550 central processing unit that incorporates two cores (4 threads via Intel’s HyperThreading technology) clocked at 1.5GHz and the integrated GMA 3150 graphics controller. Furthermore, the Na14S comes with a 10.1-inch LCD LED-backlit widescreen display that has a maximum supported resolution of 1024-by-600 pixels (much like the 2009 Epson Endeavor Na02mini-V).
Under the hood, the new Endeavor also offers 1GB of 1333MHz DDR3 memory and a 64GB SSD (with an optional 250GB mechanical HDD). In addition, there are three USB 2.0 ports, a Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n adapter, VGA-out, security lock slot and 3-in-1 memory card reader slot.
Epson claims that the built-in 4400mAh Li-Ion battery has an autonomy period of up to 6.1 hours. Moreover, this Intel NM10 Express Chipset-based netbook will supposedly ship with a pre-installed copy of Microsoft’s Windows 7 Starter operating system.
