Fujitsu spins out two convertible PCs

Changing your POV...

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Fujitsu has unveiled what it claims to be the world’s smallest tablet convertible PC, in addition to a new notebook PC with a bi-directional swivel display. The LifeBook U810 mini and LifeBook T2010 convertible notebook are both designed for those on-the-go, and their looks may turn some heads too.

The palm-size U810 weighs about 0.70kg and has a 5.6in LED display that swivels 180° and can be laid flat on top of its QWERTY keyboard, with the screen then operated either by touch or by a stylus. It runs on an Intel A110 CPU and promises to give up to 5.5 hours of computing time with a standard four cell battery.

Fujitsu has also built a 40GB hard drive and 1GB of DDR2 memory into the device, and equipped it with Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and wireless connectivity over 802.11 standards a, b and g. Both models also have a fingerprint sensor for encrypting files with a single, err, swipe.

The larger T2010 model has a 12.1in LED-backlit display and can be operated as either a traditional notebook or as a slate tablet, with a stylus. And in case all that display spinning goes to your head, then the keyboard is also spill-resistant.

The machine is slightly heavier than the U810, at 1.58kg. However, it runs off an Intel Core 2 Duo U7600 CPU, with 4GB of DDR2 memory and is equipped with up to a 160GB hard drive.

Fujitsu’s U810 notebook will be available in the US next month for around $1,000 and the T2010 is available now in the US for around $1,600.
