That MacBooks and MacBooks Pro come with glass multi-touch trackpads, we already know. But looking at Sharp's new Mebius PC-NJ70A, I'm glad this was really fake.
The manufacturer touched an LCD touchscreen (with 854 × 480 pixels of resolution) on the machine's trackpad, which really works as a secondary monitor. It can be used to launch applications, control machine functions and even offers handwriting recognition. But ugly and strange pacas.
Other than that, the Mebius is a 10.1-inch netbook (1024 × 600 pixel resolution) with conventional features: 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, Wi-Fi 802.11b / g and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.
Check out a video of the machine in operation:

The forecast is that it will be released in May in Japan, starting at 80 thousand Japanese yen (about R $ 1,815).
