NEC builds an outdoor laptop

NEC introduced an improved version of its laptop for the outdoorsman on Monday. NEC updated its new Versa DayLite E120 with an 800MHz low voltage Pentium III-M processor from Intel. The new E120, however, keeps the same reflective 10.4-inch display as its predecessor. The display is designed to be viewable outdoors, unlike most notebook displays that nearly wash out in direct sunlight. The DayLite can also be used indoors or at night by increasing the screen's brightness using a switch mounted on the chassis. The DayLite machine weighs 3.1 pounds and includes 256MB of memory and a 20GB hard drive. Its standard battery is good for four hours of use, NEC said. The machine starts at $2,199. --John G.
