Fujitsu laptops, desktops
Targeting the company's Japanese home, Fujitsu is launching several new notebook and desktop PCs. Of the former, the high-end is represented by the FMV-H8250, which has a 15.4-inch display with a native resolution of 1920x1200. Inside is a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo T7700, running on an Intel Q35 Express motherboard.
The A8250 (pictured) represents a dramatic drop, moving to 1280x800 resolution, and a 1.73GHz Celeron M 530 processor. The B8250 shrinks to a 1024x768, 12.1-inch display, and also relies on a 933MHz Celeron M 523 chip; as an ultra-low voltage notebook though, battery life should be extended. The H8250 and A8250 will ship in late November at prices of 346,500 ($2,944) and 152,250 yen ($1,293), while the B8250 should be ready later this month for 202,650 yen ($1,722).
In the desktop realm, Fujitsu is updating its ESPRIMO slimline range with two machines. The FMV-D5350 again runs off of a Q35 Express motherboard -- meaning integrated graphics -- but uses a desktop-quality Core 2 Duo CPU, the 2.33GHz E6550. The FMV-D5150 makes use of dedicated graphics, but only in the form of a Radeon Xpress 1150, and the processor is an AMD Mobile Sempron 3600+ rated at 2GHz. The new ESPRIMOs should also ship towards the end of November at 162,750 and 115,500 yen ($1,383 and $981). [via Impress Watch]
