Panasonic Unveils “Lets Note” R-Series Ultraportable Notebooks in Japan

January 25, 2010, By Atul Roach

With netbooks and the tablets on the rise, notebooks are quickly loosing their appeal in the market but that does not deter Panasonic Japan from introducing a whole new series of “Lets Note” ultra-portable notebooks in Japan.

The R-Series notebooks comes with range-topping variants such as the CF-R9JWACDR which is powered by an Intel Core i7-620UM vPro processor that runs at 1.06GHz. Other basic specs include a 4GB DDR3 RAM and a maximum of 500GB HDD or 128GB SSD integration.

The prospective buyers who are not pleased with the Core i7-620UM processor can always get it upgraded to 640UM which will render 1.20GHz. Another adaptation missing in the R9 notebook is an optical drive but Panasonic has compensated by integrating a PC card slot along with an SD/SDHC card reader. Also, there are a couple of USB 2.0 ports and a VGA video output that adore the machine.

The exact dimensions of the R9 notebook measure 229 x 187 x 29.4 mm while it weighs 0.93kg. WiFi and Bluetooth also come as standard features and a 3100mAh battery ensures 7.5hrs of run time.The pricing details are not yet available but the notebook should be up for the grabs by Feb 17 in the local market.
