TAIPEI, TAIWAN, June 26, 2008 – BenQ announced their latest ultra-portable netbook, the Joybook Lite U102, fashioned for the always-connected, on-the-go, style-setting Internet enthusiast. Deluxe online fun rivaling laptop performance is made possible by Intel’s® Atom™ processor, a 10.1” UltraVivid™ 16:9 WSVGA LED-backlit screen, a 250GB HDD, connection essentials, and cool web conveniences.

The Joybook Lite U102 makes sharing videos and photos effortless with its high-resolution webcam, crystal-clear built-in speakers, and integrated microphone with smart noise suppression and echo cancellation.  Accessing all the wonders of the World Wide Web – such as surfing, messaging, email, and shopping – is always reliable via wide-coverage, high-speed WiFi and optional 3.75G HSUPA.  A clever hotkey even enables instant switching between the different types of wireless networks.

Whatever content, wherever setting, the U102’s 10.1-inch 1024×600 widescreen is sure to display in brilliant, true colors and clean definition.  In particular, HD content is immaculately rendered without distortion or annoying black bars, courtesy of the native 16:9 aspect ratio, which ensures 1:1 mapping to HD content.  For boundless “anywhere” enjoyment and use, BenQ’s exclusive UltraVivid technology coupled with LED-backlighting advantages optimize color and vibrancy.

Weighing just 1.05kg and under an inch in thickness, the U102 is powered by Intel’s low-power-consuming Atom processor. Paired with BenQ’s power-conserving advancements, the Atom enables overall higher energy efficiency and extends battery life.  In fact, the included 3-cell battery can last an unsurpassed three hours.  For serious uninterrupted U102 joy, an optional 6-cell battery enables nearly six hours of operation.  When non-stop operation is required, the petite AC adapter is light to tote at around 200g.  A 250GB hard disk storage, three USB 2.0 slots, and a 4-in-1 card reader afford easy access to photos, music, and other media.  

The Joybook Lite U102 will be available from June in Taiwan, China, and Thailand.
