Epson Prepares Endeavor Na02mini-V Netbook

Known more for its printers, projectors and other office-automation equipment, Epson is now venturing into ULPC with the Endeavor Na02mini-V. This 10.1 inch netbook packs the most common pieces of hardware found in its category, with a 1024 x 600 pixel screen, Intel Atom N280 1.66 GHz processor running on Intel 945GSE chipset, 1 GB DDR2 memory, gigabit Ethernet and WiFi (IEEE802.11b/g/n). Fixed storage is care of a relatively fast 160 GB 5400 rpm hard-drive, while a 3-in-1 memory card reader makes for the rest of it. It comes with Windows XP Home Edition SP3 pre-installed as the OS. Available for pre-order on Epson Japan store, it is priced at 39,800 JPY. Epson however, will start shipping these only in late November.

At $430, that is not THAT cheap for the hardware you are getting compared to other netbooks in that category.

I really hate that keyboard. And I have to agree with PVT, $430 is not cheap with that hardware. Well, more like $417 and some change, but still.
$400+ isn't cheap for a netbook.
