Fujitsu has introduced a host of new Windows 7-ready mobile PCs that range from tablets and netbooks to ultra-thins and desktop replacements. I suspect Fujitsu's announcement among others in the last week is only the start of what's to come with Microsoft's latest OS slated for release this Thursday.
The LifeBook T4310 is a convertible tablet PC aimed at students and consumers. It weighs 4.2lbs and features a 12.1" WXGA LED-backlit multitouch display with a bi-directional hinge, and a stylus that has onboard buttons and eraser functionality. It packs a Core 2 Duo CPU, an integrated webcam, dual digital microphones, fingerprint sensor, HDMI, VGA, Firewire, Gigabit Ethernet, three USB ports, a MemoryStick/SD media and ExpressCard slot, full-sized keyboard with a touchpad, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
The T4310 starts at $1,099 after a $50 rebate, and is available from October 30, while Fujitsu's LifeBook T4410 is a slightly more expensive tablet geared toward "mobile professionals" which starts at $1,199 and is available immediately. It has an optional "bright" display (presumably more appropriate for outside use) with wider viewing angles, embedded TPM, optional active digitizer (or dual digitizer), and ships with Windows 7 Professional, Vista Business, or XP Downgrade as well as all of the T4310's listed features.
Fujitsu's ultra-thin LifeBook P3010 weighs roughly 3.5lbs and measures just over an inch thick. It is equipped with an 11.6" WXGA LCD display, a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo, 2GB of RAM (up to 4GB), a 320GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth connectivity, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, three USB ports, an optional external DVD drive, and Windows 7 Home Premium. Pricing starts at $549 and the P3010 will be up for purchase in late October, but will ship mid-November.
The company is marketing its 15.6" LifeBook A1220 as a desktop replacement, and it houses an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM (8GB max), a 500GB 5400RPM HDD, Blu-ray drive, a 2-megapixel webcam, an HDMI port and the usual trimmings. The Blu-ray-enabled model starts at $999 and can be had right now via Fujitsu's website. The company is also offering a $449 netbook at the moment, which looks pretty standard with a 10.1" WSVGA display, an Intel Atom 280, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD, six-cell battery and Windows 7 Starter.
