Fujitsu: Sweet Candy

Fujitsu: Sweet Candy

Taking a different approach this time was Fujitsu's launch of two new LifeBook A series notebooks together with their first foray into the netbook market with the Fujitsu M1010. While the A series notebooks look like a sweet sweet deal, it's a shame they won't be available for the upcoming Sitex show. The Fujitsu M1010 however, will make its way down to Sitex and will be available for purchase.

While most netbooks have been aimed solely at the consumer market, Fujitsu will be taking a different approach for their netbook (and hence the steeper price of S$888). Catered more as a second, light and portable computer for business users, the M1010 will probably be more suited for such tasks given its smaller 8.9-inch screen and features such as an ExpressCard slot. Of course, this shouldn't deter normal consumers from getting the netbook either, as Fujitsu's netbook will come with snap-on covers for that extra touch of customization.

The other two A series notebooks as mentioned earlier, won't make it in time for Sitex, but will be available come Q1 2009. If you're still keen here's a few shots of both 15.4-inch notebooks, the lower end LifeBook A1110 and the higher end LifeBook A6220.
