Epson Japan rolls out Hello Kitty notebook

First NEC’s model, then Onkyo’s and now it’s time for Epson to release a Hello Kitty laptop [JP]. The devices are only available in Japan, where they will be exclusively sold online starting December 10.

The Hello Kitty notebook is based on Epson’s Endeavor NJ2150. Buyers can choose between a combo model ($1,200) and a so-called super-multi version ($1,500). Both versions are available in two different designs.

The combo model comes with an Intel Celeron 575 CPU (2GHz), 1GB memory, a 80GB HDD, a 15.4-inch TFT WXGA screen (1280×800 resolution), a DVD drive, WiFi, Windows Vista and, of course, a number of super-cute pre-installed Hello Kitty wallpapers.

The super-multi notebook features the same specs but is equipped with an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 CPU (2.26GHz), 2GB memory, a 120GB HDD and a DVD super multi drive.
