The NEC VersaPro UltraLite that appears on video is the thinnest notebook yet, and it can be picked up with just two fingers. It has a 64 GB SSD, which is no doubt why it’s going for around $1,000 in Japan, but it’s just so darn cool.

It has a 10.6-inch display running at 1,280×768 and can easily give a Sony VAIO P a run for its money in the small and light category. Like the Sony, this NEC is hardly bigger than the keyboard, which means no trackpad; you’ll have to make do with a trackstick in the keyboard. Have a look at the NEC VersaPro UltraLite, the first true rival to the VAIO P.

  1. Finally, computer makers seem to be cottoning on to the fact that may of us dont want to cart large computers around. I am currently using a Fujitsu P 1620 but would trade to something thinner and a bit larger in a heartbeat if it offered similar computer power.

    My old 2003 Toshiba remains the computer with the best form factor I have ever owned

  2. That is one attractive laptop.

    As a track stick lover and touch pad loather, I think it’s great to finally see someone other than Sony saving some size on a netbook AND giving me the pointing device I prefer. Hopefully this one will make it to the US at some point.
