Epson Japan to sell super-cute Hello Kitty notebook


The dream of millions of teenage girls around the world, Sanrio’s Hello Kitty, gets yet another notebook in Japan. This time, the cartoon cat is supposed to boost sales of an Epson model, the Endeavor NJ2150 in “pearl white”. It will be available in two different versions.

The standard version comes with a Celeron 900 processor (2.2GHz), 1GB Ram and an 80GB HDD (price: $1,350). The high-spec Hello Kitty notebook is equipped with a Core 2 Duo P8700 processor (2.53GHz), 2GB of RAM and a 160 GB HDD (price $1,650). Both models feature a 15.4-inch screen, 5 USB 2.0 ports, a 3-in1- card reader, IEEE 1394/IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN and Windows Vista Home Premium.

In addition to the super-cute design of the hardware itself, you’ll also get a Hello Kitty screensaver and wall papers (which you could have downloaded anywhere on the web anyway). The notebooks will be sold from July 17, but they’re available only in Sanrio’s Japanese online store and a few Hello Kitty shops in Tokyo.

Contact the Japan Trend Shop or Geek Stuff 4 U if you really want to get one shipped outside Japan.
