It took me a while to get accustomed to a netbook's dimensions; it was just hard for me to believe that this was a notebook computer for adults. Now however they are all the rage, even coming in different colors and fragrances to appeal to the masses. Kohjinsha, another Japanese hi-end notebook maker has teamed up with Bandai to produce a special limited edition Gachapin and Mukku Netbook aimed towards Japanese kids. It features a 8.9" 1024 x 600 display and the usual Atom N270 CPU, 1GB RAM, 160GB 5400rpm HDD, 1.3MP Webcam and a 1-Seg Digital TV Tuner.
The Gachapin is a well known character in Japan, and purchasers of the lime green shell notebook will be shelling out an extra $217 for cartoon branding since the Kohjinsha ML netbook costs just $651. The netbook is obviously only for Japanese consumers for now with no plans of launching it outside. Oh and it costs $868 incase you don't want to calculate.
