Panasonic launches the new J10 notebook
Panasonic seems to be on a roll with their new laptop releases. After announcing the new B10 and the improved S10 a couple days ago, the Japanese company has released their new Letsnote J10 notebook. The newest Sandy Bridge notebook is aimed for extreme portability but comes with a hefty price tag.
The 10.1” laptop comes in two flavors, a high-end and low-end edition. The high-end J10Q has a 2nd Generation Intel Core i5-480M 2.66GHz processor, a 128GB SSD, only 2GB RAM and Windows 7 Home Premium. It also comes with 3 USB ports and a SDXC slot. The 1366x768 pixel display offers a high quality resolution for a 10 Inch screen.
As far as the low-end model goes, it will be known as the J10P and is powered by a Core i3-380M 2.53GHz processor, a 160GB HDD, and Windows 7 Home Premium as well. The J10P will be available in white to differentiate it from the black J10Q.
Panasonic claims that both laptops will have excellent battery life; with the J10P running for 7.5 Hours and the J10Q running for an incredible 12 hours. If correct that would be quite an achievement for a laptop that only weighs 1.2 KG. Unfortunately, the J10Q and P will only be available in Japan for the time being; and will be priced at $2200 and $1770 respectively. Launch date is set for February 10th.
