Miffy netbook from Onkyo surfaces

Miffy is a cartoon rabbit that my daughter has watched from time to time on TV. She even has a couple storybooks with Miffy in them. I'm not particularly surprised to learn that Miffy is somewhat of a pop icon in Japan.

After all, this is the same country where you can find Hello Kitty plastered on all manner of things. Onkyo has announced a new netbook with Miffy featured prominently. The netbook is the Onkyo C4 and sports a Miffy UI setting it apart a bit from the other netbooks.

The machine also has a Miffy cover and logo on it. Hardware includes an Atom N450 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 160GB HDD, a 10.1-inch LED backlit LCD, WiFi, and more. The machine will be offered in Japan with Windows 7 Starter or XP Home.
