Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Fujitsu has added two new notebook computers to its range, claiming they'll no longer be a burden to lopsided mobile workers. The LifeBook B110 (nicknamed Bilbo, sorry, Biblo) is the world's smallest, lightest high-performance notebook PC, claims Fujistu, and is about the same weight and size as a paperback book. A Biblo with an Intel 233MHz MMX Penitum II with 8.4in TFT screen, 32MB SDRAM (expandable to 160MB), 3.2GB hard drive and 2MB Neo Magic 2160 video controller will set you back £1,199 (inc. VAT). The new LifeBook L series is the latest incarnation of the sliceable concept launched by Fujitsu two years ago. With all the main PC elements contained in the main lightweight unit, it can be easily snapped into a separate MobileDock which carries extra interfaces such as CD-ROM, floppy drive and a second battery. Complete with Pentium II CPU and a 13.3in screen in an inch-thick package that weighs less than couple of bags of sugar, prices for the LifeBook L starts at £1,999 (exc. VAT). ®
