Comex 2007: The Full Monty!

NEC, Nokia and O2 Booths

NEC's Booth

 NEC was out in full force to promote its notebooks at Comex.

 The new NEC Versa E6300 has some interesting design features that stand out from its competitors. A backlit touchpad lights up while the exterior has a leather texture and there's a 2.0 mega-pixel camera. Shortcut keys for recovery, email and Internet are also found. NEC has priced it at $1599 at Comex for this 14.1-inch notebook.

 A capable 13.3-inch widescreen notebook at $1999, the NEC Versa S3300 is one of the rare Santa Rosa notebooks in retail, which comes with Intel's Turbo Memory feature. While its merits are debatable, the notebook itself has 1GB of onboard memory and NEC has tossed in a free upgrade to 2GB for this promotion. Graphics is courtesy of Intel's X3100 GMA and there's also space on this 2kg machine for a 160GB hard drive.

 A lesser version of the NEC Versa 3300 is the 3200, which only has a dual core processor (T2130). The graphics chipset is the older Intel GMA950 though its coal black metal alloy chassis looks quite elegant. There's only a 4-cell Li-Ion battery though for this 13.3-inch notebook. NEC has included free gifts worth more than $169, including a Trek 2GB thumb drive and a designer carrying case.

 The O2 Atom Life Limited Edition makes it appearance felt at the O2 booth. Sporting a pure matted white color, it is safe from any smudge prints that constantly appears on its black sibling version.
