The Joybook Lite T131 weighs in at just under four pounds, measures 1.1-inches think and runs on AMD’s Yukon chipset and Sempron processor. The Joybook Lite packs a 13.3-inch WXGA (1280x800) display complete with anti-glare, 1 GB of RAM (upgradable to 2 GB), a 250/320 GB hard drive, 2 x USB 2.0, a microphone, headphone jack, a 2-in-1 card reader, built in 802.11b/g/n and ships with Windows Vista Home Basic, with an option to upgrade to Windows Vista Business.
