NEC announced LaVie S Laptop today in Japan. This laptop is implementing the Intel’s Next Gen Calpella PC platform, wher it will be based on the 45nm Nehalem Processor architecture and the adaptive snoozing features on its new wireless chipset, allowing NEC LaVie S laptop to scales down its radio power as low as possible when the data transmission is not so active.
NEC LaVie S laptop is also one of the wannabe slim 15.6-inch laptop because the thickness has closely ‘thin’ at 35mm only. Well, if you have to compare it with the latest slim type laptop, NEC LaVie S laptop sure looks a lot thicker. But the thickness does come with some reasons…
