Sharp’s Dual-Screen Netbook Priced at $999

sharp-mebius-pc-nj70aRemember that funky dual-screen netbook from Sharp we showed you a few days ago? Turns out it’s coming to the U.S. via Dynamism. And at $999, it can be yours for almost the same price as three Aspire Ones. To recap, the PC-NJ70A has an LCD screen built into the palm rest that allows users to view programs and play games. Otherwise, its specs make it identical to almost every other netbook we’ve seen: a 1.6-GHz Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and a memory card reader. Early adopters, would you ever, under any circumstances, shell out a thousand bucks for a netbook? If so, what specs or features would it have to have? Also, are you insane? Sound off in the comments. Thanks JKOnTheRun!

    I would not pay $1000 for this Sharp netbook.

    Unless it adds 3.5G mobile connectivity, BT, a/g/n wifi, 2GB of RAM, 80GB SSD, and a super lightweight Li-polymer battery that lasts over 10 hours (with 3.5G on!).

    Any clues on the resolution of the palm-rest touchscreen? Is the touchscreen multi-touch?

    Seriously? This comes packaged with a new Rolex or Tag right?

  3. Glenn Says:

    No. Just no.

    TKL, it’s 854 x 480. It doesn’t have multi-touch, as far as I know.
