Rockman Ultrabooks Are Going to be a Thing
Pretty cool news coming from Rockman Unity tonight: Capcom will be producing Rockman-themed Ultrabook laptops. Don't throw money at your monitor just yet; there's some work to be done before you can buy one.
The Rockman Ultrabook Project is asking for user input to dicate the creation of these laptops. The current poll is asking what design you'd like featured on the outer case. Choose which of the four designs you like (or suggest your own), toggle your age, and click the submit button. In the weeks ahead, Capcom will be tossing up two more polls.
So what's under the hood? There's a third generation, energy efficient CPU, and a solid-state storage drive (capacity not specified). Outside, we've got a 14.1″ anti-glare LCD display and 19mm thin form factor. The non-existent disc drive contributes to an overall weight of no more than 1.67kg (or 3.68 lbs). Hey, not too shabby!
When all the polling is done, the Ultrabooks will be made to pre-order on March 29. Units will ship out in July. Alas, this initiative sounds like a Japan only thing. But in case we hear otherwise, stay tuned.
