We've seen plenty of netbooks now, and they usually come in a pretty standard configuration and build. There's not too much room for innovation or additional features because generally speaking, OEMs want to get these netbooks to be made and sold as cheaply as possible. Sometimes though, a manufacturer is willing to take a risk and come up with something different, but not too different that it prices the netbook in question out of reach.
What we're looking at today is Fujitsu's LifeBook MH330, which is as thin and light as netbooks come. Packing in the latest Intel Atom N450 processor and chipset, our prototype unit shies away from the usual chunky netbook build with a slim design that's nice on the eyes and hands. And unlike other more expensive ultrathin netbooks, the Fujitsu LifeBook MH330 will be retailing at a very affordable S$699 price tag. That puts Fujitsu in the same competitive market space as most other players, which is quite unlike of the company's customary business-centric models and positioning. Check out the build of this newcomer while we await the retail-ready unit for proper testing and review.
