Fujitsu intros 11in notebook-not-netbook

CULV 'r' in

Fujitsu has hopped on the Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage - Intel's name for low-end, low-power notebook chippery - bandwagon and launched the 11in Lifebook P3110.

Fujitsu's Lifebook P3110: notebook processor and storage spec...

Notebook or netbook? There's no Atom processor here, just a choice of single-core Celeron 743, Pentium SU4100 and dual-core Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPUs. But otherwise you're talking about a compact machine a lot like a netbook.

The port layout is pure netbook: three USB, SDHC card slot, Ethernet, VGA and analog audio.

Don't forget, prospective buyers, dual-core replacements for the SU1400 and 743 are in the pipeline for Q4 so you may want to wait a wee while.

Fujitsu didn't detail many of the machine's other specs - it'll presumably say more closer to the 9 November launch date - but it did say that there will be a version will built in 3G HSDPA connectivity and the P3110 will be available in a choice of red, black and silver colour schemes.

...but netbook size and port array

Each will come with up to 4GB of memory and 500GB of HDD storage, Fujitsu said, and offer a battery life of up to six hours. The will have 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Given the launch date - the 3G models don't come out until 23 November, perhaps in celebration of Doctor Who's 46th anniversary - Windows 7 will almost certainly be the bundled operating system. ®
