Even more wee than the Eee

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Updated Fujitsu's Japanese customers will soon be able to get their mitts on one of the most stylish - and tiniest - Atom-based mini-laptops we've seen: the LifeBook FMV Biblo U/B50.

Fujitsu FMV Biblio U/B50: Atom powered

The compact machine sports a 5.6in display that's nonetheless capable of a 1280 x 800 resolution. The screen has an integrated webcam

The machine incorporates not the 'Diamondville' Atom usually found in Small, Cheap Computers, but the 1.6GHz Atom Z530, a 'Silverthorne' chip designed for what Intel calls "mobile internet devices".

Only a 5.6in screen, but it still runs Vista

The U/B50 has 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on board - and 3G communications too. It can drive a telly thanks to its HDMI port.

Incredibly, the thing runs Windows Vista. It's got a gig of Ram on board, and buyers can choose either a 1.8in hard drive of 60, 100 or 120GB capacity, or a 64GB solid-state drive for storage.

The U/50 measures 171 x 135 x 26.5-33mm. With a 2900mAh battery, it weighs 562g. An optional, 5800mAh power pack raises the weight to 663.5g.

And prices? The base 60GB HDD model costs ¥123,800 ($1134/£609/€767), and you can add ¥20,000 ($183/£98/€124) and ¥22,000 ($202/£108/€136) to that for the 100GB and 120GB models, respectively.

Want the SSD model? It'll set you back a cool ¥273,800 ($2509/£1346/€1697). Small yes, cheap no...
