At Computex 2010, Onkyo revealed a new netbook with not one, but two 10.1 inch LCD screens. Along with two screens, $956 will land you a netbook with AMD’s 1.6GHz Neo MV-40 processor, 320GB of hard-drive, 2GB of ram, and ATI’s Radeon HD 3200 graphics card. Additionally, it comes with a webcam, wifi, bluetooth capabilities, Windows 7, and a battery lasting close to 4 hours.
This is definitely not a cheap netbook and we believe there are numerous other more inexpensive and better alternatives out there. However, should you want to acquire this model, it will go on sale for $956 in December.
The $1000 dollar price tag on Onkyo’s dual-screen laptop is causing many an excited consumer to do a double take. It’s surprising to have a laptop offering two 10.1 inch screens clock in at less than one grand, but Onkyo has made it a possibility. This laptop will compete closely with Japanese manufacturer Kohjinsha which also offers a dual -screen laptop, for a marginally higher price.
The only letdown is that the Onkyo DX is only available in Japan for now. The laptop is reasonably priced at ¥84,800 (approximately 960 USD).

Smartphones come with pre-installed GPSes, so why shouldn’t netbooks? Onkyo Japan has addressed this gap in their newest tablet netbook, the NX707A4.
Onkyo’s 7-inch netbook (1024×600 resolution) is powered by a 1.33GHz Intel Atom Z520 processor and has an Intel US15W chipset, 1 GB of RAM, and an 80 GB hard drive. Other tech specs include 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, an ExpressCard/34 slot, SD/SDHC/MMC/Memory Stick Pro slots, two USB ports, and two webcams – a 3.0 megapixel one and a 0.3 megapixel one. The netbook will also be equipped with the Windows 7 OS and have a battery that’s good for 3 hours.
The NX707A4 netbook will start selling in Japan at the end of December for a price of $680, but Onkyo currently has no plans to release the netbook outside of the country. We’ll keep you posted on any new developments.
We’ve got little more than hints at the new Onkyo C405 netbook, but from what we’re hearing the new Japanese machine will be a bare-bones device compared to some of its flashier netbooks on the market.
It will be armed with an Intel Atom N280 CPU, 1 GB of RAM, a 250 GB HDD, 10.1″ display and Wi-Fi. A Japan-only release is expected initially, but pricing details are thus far unknown. Check back soon for more info on the Onkyo C405.
This netbook has 1 GB of RAM and a 32 GB steady state hard drive and also comes with Wi-Fi, Ethernet via USB, and a webcam. It also has an Intel 945GSE Express graphics card.
This netbook is rumored to be available in Japan by the end of May and will have a price tag of roughly $529 (converted to US dollars).
