It's hard to get excited about a company releasing a new netbook model anymore. After all, most of them feature pretty much the same hardware under the hood. But with a thin and light chassis weighing 1.1kg and measuring less than an inch tall, the Fujitsu LifeBook MH330 might get your attention anyway. The netbook is powered by an Intel Atom N450 processor (1.66GHz, 512 L2 Cache, at 667MHz) and is packing a 250GB hard drive along 1GB of RAM.

It has a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display (with a maximum resolution of 1,024 x 600), GMA 3150 integrated graphics, and plenty connectivity options such as 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, 5-in-1 card slot, three USB ports and VGA-out. Fujitsu also included a spill-resistant keyboard, as well as a DVD Sharing application that allows the MF3300 to access the DVD drive on your PC.

Perhaps the biggest turn offs besides the paltry gig of RAM are its 3-cell battery and the fact that it uses Windows 7 Starter. Available in black or red color options, the Fujitsu LifeBook MH330 will start shipping in Asia this month for around $500. Interestingly, on a separate note, while Fujitsu is still betting on the 10-inch netbook market, it seems HP and Dell might be cutting back on their investments due to disappointing sales of Pine Trail-based systems.
