3 Big data security analytics techniques

Fujitsu Siemens (FS) today unveiled what it claims is "the world's most desirable laptop" - so desirable, in point of fact, that the company is making the €4,000-plus ($4,743/£2,724) product available in "limited quantities only". Among its appealing features: it's 2cm thick and is decked out in a "black piano lacquer" finish.

The Lifebook Q2010 not only boasts Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11g Wi-Fi but also 3G mobile phone network connectivity and Gigabit Ethernet. VoIP-ready, the notebook a pair of microphones for improved noise-cancellation and sound quality. The notebook has a fingerprint scanner backed by a Trusted Platform Module for secure log-ins.

The machine's a Centrino-branded item based on an Intel Core ULV processor of as-yet-undetermined speed and Intel's 945GMS chipset, which also provides the machine's graphics. The Lifebook sports a 1280 x 800, 12.1in display. The machine will be offered with up to 1GB of 400MHz DDR SDRAM on board, up to 128MB of which will be grabbed as video buffer.

The Q2010 has an SD and Express Card slots for expansion, along with a SIM slot to enable cellular networking. There are a pair of USB 2.0 ports too - a dock connector links the unit to a port replicator box with integrated optical drive.

Weighing 1kg, the Q2010 measures 29.7 x 21.9cm - roughly the same as an A4 sheet of paper - and is 1.8-2cm thick. Inside is a lithium-ion battery capable of delivering up to eight hours' runtime, FS said.

Dubbed by one FS spokesman as a "truly aspirational product", the Q2010 will ship some time in Q2. ®
