NEC LaVie J Series Available Soon, With Wireless USB

NEC LaVie J The NEC LaVie J Series should be available later this week.

It’s a 12.1″ widescreen, lightweight (under three pounds) ultraportable notebook with an Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) Intel Core 2 Duo U7600 (1.2GHz, 2MB L2).

It’s unique in that it’s one of the first offerings with a Wireless USB hub (basically you have a wireless hub that you plug a USB mouse, printer, scanner, etc., into, and your notebook can automatically connect to the hub without any physical connections).

There are going to be three models:
LJ750/LH – 2GB Memory, 160GB Hard Drive, 802.11a/b/g/n
LJ730/LG – 1GB Memory, 80GB Hard Drive, 802.11a/b/g

Akihabara News mentions that the low-end LJ700 does not come with Microsoft Office 2007, implying the other two do. These will probably only be available in Asia (at least under the NEC brand).
