Fujitsu Lifebook U2010: the tiniest notebook in the world


Like it or not, netbooks are here to stay, and nearly every notebook manufacturer has released their own take of the popular low-cost mini notebook design. But is there still a market for MID/UMPC-style machines? Thatís the question Fujitsu poses with the Lifebook U2010. Itís tinier than the most miniature of netbooks, with a footprint thatís smaller than this magís DVD cover, and it weighs a petite 610g (the lightest netbook comes in at just under a kilo).

But size isnít the only factor separating the U2010 from its larger netbook cousins. It has the same form factor of a tablet PC, for starters, with a touchscreen that rotates 180 degrees and folds back onto the keyboard for use as a slate.
Another key difference is price. Most netbooks, with the exception of the HP Mini-Note 2133, run for under $700, and while the U2010 sells for a fair bit cheaper than its predecessor, the U1010, itís still twice as expensive as a netbook. Part of the markup comes from the aforementioned tablet form factor Ė the rest comes from the fact that, like the HP Mini-Note, it runs the pricier Windows Vista Business.   (Source: Jenneth Orantia, apcmag.com)
