Fujitsu MH330 netbook hands-on impressions

April 12, 2010 at 8:50 am

Fujitsu MH330The Fujitsu LifeBook MH330 netbook was announced at the beginning of the month. It is the company’s entry level netbook that sports basic specs (10”display, N450 Atom, 1GB RAM, 250GB HDD and Windows 7 Starter) but comes in a 1-inch thick chassis weighing 1.1kg.

NetbookNews managed some hands-on time with the netbook that has a nice matte finish on the lid. It only comes with a 3-cell 2200mAh battery which is a downer, but it does have a large access panel to change your HDD, RAM and Wi-Fi. Check out the video after the break. Read more

April 1, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Fujitsu LifeBook MH330Fujitsu is set to launch a budget 10.1-inch Pine Trail with typical specs but with a lightweight chassis weighing 1.1kg measuring an inch (24.5mm) in thickness. The MH330 has a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) display powered by a 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, 250GB HDD and comes with the latest wireless standards including Wi-Fi (b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1.

Other features include a spill resistant keyboard, 5-in-1 card slot and a webcam. Battery life probably won’t be great given the inclusion of a three-cell battery. The netbook will cost S$699 (US$499.68) when it hits Asia in April.

Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 reviewed – positives outweigh negatives

March 7, 2010 at 10:21 am

Fujitsu LifeBook UH900The Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 is one of the more powerful 5.6-inch UMPCs on the market that comes with options for a 2.0GHz Intel Atom processor, Windows 7, 2GB RAM and a SSD. Jenn from Pocketables has been reviewing one for the last few weeks and found the UH900 to be a joy to use overall.

Getting the negative points out of the way first, the UH900 had quite poor battery life (2.0 to 2.5 hours of web browsing over Wi-Fi) from its 2-cell 1800mAh battery. Build quality also felt ‘toy like’ and the multitouch felt more to be a gimmick than of any real use. Read more

Jenn over at Pocketables has received her 2.0GHz unit and promptly shot some unboxing photos for us to enjoy as well as some comparison pics. The packaging isn’t inspiring and she lamented the absence of a case. Read more

Fujitsu LifeBook MH380 reviewed – step in right direction but too pricey

February 10, 2010 at 5:45 pm

Fujitsu LifeBook MH380The Fujitsu LifeBook MH380 is quite unique amongst Intel Pine Trail netbooks. First of all it has a high resolution 10.1-inch (1366 x 768) display and secondly it also comes with a scroll pad next to its touchpad that is used to navigate lengthy web pages and the like.

Laptop Mag has its review of the device and whilst overall it only scored three stars out of five, there are some definite positives for the Fujitsu netbook. It is a much better effort than its predecessor, it has a bright HD display, comfortable keyboard, loud speakers and good battery life. The scroll pad also works surprisingly well. Read more

Fujitsu Lifebook MH380 Fujitsu looks set to release a 10.1-inch netbook with the upcoming Intel Pineview processor. The MH380 / M380 LifeBook models have appeared going via the FCC and there is little known about the models at this stage.

What we do know is that it will come with a 10.1-inch high-resolution (1366 x 768) display, 1.66GHz N450 Atom processor, Atheros Wi-Fi (Draft-N) and an Ethernet port.

Fujitsu announces FMV LOOX C 11.6-inch ultra-thin

October 13, 2009 at 8:06 pm

Fujitsu FMV LOOX CAnother manufacturer has jumped onto the CULV-powered ultra-thin segment. Fujitsu has announced the 11.6-inch FMV LOOX C that is powered by either a dual-core 1.2GHz Intel SU2300 or 1.4GHz Intel SU9400 processor. This comes with the Intel GS45 chipset and GMA 4500MHD graphics.

As with all other netbooks/ultra-thins with 11.6-inch displays, the LOOX C will have a 1366 x 768 resolution screen. In terms of battery, the entry level FMV LOOX C/E50 battery should last 6.2 hours, whilst the FMV LOOX C/E70 is quoted at 9.2 hours.

Other features include 2GB RAM, 320GB HDD, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi (Draft-N), card reader and three USB ports. No HDMI out I’m afraid. The C/E50 will launch in Japan on October 27th for 80,000 Yen (£561, $892, €601), with the C/E70 hitting retail two days later for 100,000 Yen (£702, $1115, €751). Certainly not cheap then, there’s no word on whether these models will be launching outside Japan for now.

Fujitsu’s LOOX M netbook branded M2010 outside Japan

April 30, 2009 at 10:15 pm

Fujitsu M2010Fujitsu Siemens introduced a new 10.1-inch netbook to the Japanese market last week called the LOOX M. Judging from a press release by Fujitsu Asia Pacific, the same netbook will be marketed under the M2010 name across other regions. This would make sense as their previous netbook was known as the M1010 in most markets.

The M2010 specifications seem identical to the LOOX M, and it even sports the same infinity motif on the lid. The M2010 comes with a 10.1-inch LED-backlit display with a resolution of 1024 x 576 pixels. It will be powered by a 1.6GHz N270 Atom CPU (a 1.66GHz N280 Atom option will be available from June) and Intel 945GSE chipset. It will also come with 1GB RAM (2GB max) and a 160GB hard-disk drive. Other features include Bluetooth 2.1, a 1.3MP webcam, three USB slots and a 4-in-1 card reader. Read more

Fujitsu working on M2010 netbook?

March 21, 2009 at 1:48 pm

Fujitsu is planning to release the M2010 netbook in July this year according to UMPC Fever. All that has been revealed is a rather amateurish hand-drawn picture of the new model and therefore there is very limited information. The only reason this rumour has any kind of credibility is due to the fact that it was revealed by a forum member of the site, Codyyuen, who is a staff member of a Fujitsu distributor in Hong Kong.

The picture for the M2010 shows a rather standard (10-inch?) netbook design. So maybe Fujitsu is just following the herd. The original Fujitsu M1010 had rather average specifications with an 8.9-inch (1024 x 600) widescreen display powered by a 1.6GHZ N270 Intel Atom CPU and 1GB of RAM. It also came with a 60GB hard-disk drive, Bluetooth 2.1, 1.3MP webcam, 4-in-1 SD card reader and WiFi.
