A new Fujitsu LifeBook convertible mini-laptop is hitting the shelves. The new T580 is a netbook that comes with a swivel-based design that can make the device double up as a touchscreen tablet. But it is worth noting that the device might not be offering you the same experience that a real tablet PC like a Samsung Galaxy Tab or iPad may offer since the physical keyboard gets the device pretty thick in tablet mode. Nevertheless, the features are definitely worth a look.
This new Fujitsu LifeBook T580 comes with a 10.1″ resistive touchscreen display that supports multitouch. The device is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and includes all the regular netbook features including GPS and 3G connectivity. An interesting feature is the ambient light sensor that will adjust the brightness of the screen according to the surroundings. The LifeBook T580 runs on Windows 7 Professional operating system and will be equipped with a battery power backup of up to 8 hours. Here’s a video of the convertible netbook in action.
Fujitsu has just announced a new LifeBook to its portfolio and unlike the earlier LifeBook notebooks we have discussed inthepast, this one is relatively larger and comes with a 15.6″ high definition display with pixel resolution of 1366×768. The device comes powered by the Intel Core processors and price depends on the series that you pick. Other features on the notebook include a 1GB ATI RADEON HD 550v graphics card, an 8GB RAM, a 500GB Hard drive storage and a 1.3-megapixel camera. The latest Fujitsu notebook includes other ports and accessories like an HDMI output port, DVD burner, optional Blu-Ray drive and support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi b/g/n.
Fujitsu has not unveiled the price and launch date of the LifeBook AH530 notebook. The device is expected to be shipped to Europe, Africa and Middle East this month. Colors available include black and blue.
Japanese computer manufacturer, Fujitsu is out with one more netbook in its LifeBook series. The new Fujitsu LifeBook PH520 is now available in the US and comes in some attractive colors. Users get a 11.6″ display packed with 1366×768 pixels running on a 1.7GHz AMD Athlon II Neo K125 processor. That’s not blazingly fast, but is still very competitive.
Other specifications are pretty standard and competitive. The Fujitsu netbook comes with a 2GB RAM and contains a storage space of 2GB. Also, users get all the other standard connectivity options like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Ethernet, 3x USB ports and a built-in card reader.
And price? Well, I cannot say it’s the cheapest. At $599, I cannot say that. But I would just assume that the performance you may expect from this netbook should be worth the price. Would you agree?
Fujitsu has launched a new tablet PC over the weekend that brings together a mix of good specs and bad design. To be honest, there is nothing revolutionary in the design and it is not very different from the other Lifebooks we have seen in the past.
But the specs should get people interested. The Fujitsu Lifebook TH700 comes with a 12.1″ WXGA LED backlight display, 4GB DDR3 SDRAM, 320GB hard drive storage running on Windows Home 7 Premium. The latest tablet PC from Fujitsu also brings with it a 2-Megapixel camera, Lithium Ion batteries offering five hours of battery life and a biometric finger sensor.
One area where I would have Fujitsu to have planned better is the price. The device launches at a starting price of $1,149 with additional accessories and features taking the price even higher. That doesn’t seem to be a bargain considering that it is not even near the price of other tablet PCs in the market – iPad included. Of course, the Fujitsu Lifebook will offer users much more advanced features and will not end up being a movie playing machine like the iPad. Still..
The new Fujitsu Lifebook T730 is not for everyone. The new tablet PC was launched yesterday without much fanfare and comes with really powerful features and specs. Here is what you can expect
