Fujitsu LifeBook P8020

Fujitsu has quietly launched a substantial upgrade to its LifeBooks through the P8020. The ultraportable carries over the unique bezel-free 12-inch LCD of the P8010 but adds a newer, faster Centrino 2-era platform as well as one of the company's few multi-touch trackpads. Owners can perform gestures with one or two fingers, including an Apple-like pinch motion to zoom in or out as well a circular motion for uninterrupted scrolling, much as with iPods.

The PC builder's starter configuration is priced at $1,799 and carries a 1.4GHz ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duo, 2GB of memory, a 120GB hard disk and a built-in DVD burner; GMA 4500MHD video is standard across the line. Other options add up to a 320GB rotating hard disk and the option of as much as a 128GB solid-state drive. Fujitsu plans to ship the P8020 next month. [via SlashGear]

    Yes, it does. See the port next to the audio jacks?

    i hate the concept of multi-touch trackpads because it only delays the development of real multi-touch screen tablet convertibles. they are using it as something like an excuse or distraction...

    give me real multitouch on the t2020.
