Tiny laptops are becoming quite popular and continue to carve a niche in the PC market. Fans of the tiny form factor will likely have their eyes on the Nanote P8, a 7-inch Japan-exclusive mini-laptop that will soon retail for the equivalent of about US$300.

The Nanote P8 is an update to last year’s Nanote. While the P8 is about $115 more expensive than last year’s model, it packs a quad-core Intel Pentium N4200, Intel HD Graphics 505, 8 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of eMMC storage. These specs seem outdated at first, but considering the first Nanote’s Intel Atom x5-Z8350 and 4 GB of RAM, the P8 is a decent upgrade.

Connectivity is largely the same on the P8, including a USB-C port (power and data), a USB-A 3.0 port, a micro-HDMI port, a microSD slot (up to 256 GB), and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The P8 is compact, coming in at 7.1 x 4.5 x 0.8 inches and 1.2 pounds. Wireless connections are available via 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.

The big draw here is the price. The Nanote P8 will retail for JP¥29,800 (¥32,780 including tax), or about $272-299 as of press time. While it’s not a powerful laptop by any means, it packs enough power for simple tasks and it should fit into most pockets (albeit not comfortably).

Currently, the Nanote P8 is slotted for Japan only, so interested buyers will need to import the machine.
