Fujitsu enters netbook market with Amilo Mini Ui 3520By Jose Vilches
Yet another computer vendor is stepping into the netbook ring, with Fujitsu recently announcing the Amilo Mini Ui 3520. Similar to what we've come to expect from these low-cost alternatives to traditional notebooks, the Ui 3520 will feature a 1.6GHz Atom processor, an 8.9-inch display, 1GB RAM, and either 60GB or 80GB HDD.
Unlike some other netbooks however, this one offers an ExpressCard slot intended for the addition of the 3G connectivity and ditches Linux as an operating system option in favor of Windows XP Home. Other features include USB 2.0 ports, 4-in-1 card reader, VGA out, 1.3-megapixel webcam, and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. The Amilo Mini Ui 3520 weighs in at about 2.2 pounds and is expected to cost around $585 - somewhat expensive for a netbook.
