Japanese netbook looks like a teddy bear

rilakumma.png

Rilakumma is a Japanese cartoon character, a cute yellow bear who likes to relax and eat mochi and donuts. Now, his face is plastered on the back of a new limited edition netbook made by toy company Bandai Namco. It’s about $800, and has 1 gig of memory, an Atom processor, and Windows XP.

    Yeah. If only there were a netbook factory in Mexico, we could get crazy local random netbooks too.
