NEC presented the first notebook based on Intel's upcoming 65nm dual-core Pentium M Yonah processor. The NEC LaVie RX LR900/ED features 512MB DDR2 memory (expandable to 1.5GB) along with Intel's 945 Express chipset with Intel's ProWireless 3945ABG that supports 801.11a/b/g Wi-Fi. Additionally, there's also Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity.
The notebook will ship with a 1400 x 1050, 14.1in display driven by the 945 Express' integrated GMA 950 graphics core. NEC is building in a 100GB hard disk and a DVD±RW/-RAM/+R dual-layer optical drive. There's a PC Card slot into which users can slip a bundled SD/xD/MemoryStick reader. There are four USB 2.0 ports and a four-pin FireWire connector. Gigabit Ethernet is built-in, too, along with the usual 56Kbps modem.
The laptop will ship somewhere in 2006, The Register reports, and it will weigh 2kg with approximately 4.1 hours of battery life on a single battery charge.
