Hands on with Fujitsu's LifeBook U820


The form factor of the U820 is nearly identical to the U810: A 5.6-inch LCD with a tablet screen, plus a pointing stick located above the keyboard with mouse buttons on the opposite size -- for browsing with two thumbs.

But just about everything under the hood's been upgraded and improved: Weight drops from 1.6 to 1.5 pounds while battery life jumps nearly an hour to 4 hours, 20 minutes. The CPU is upgraded to a 1.6GHz Atom. Hard drive goes to 60GB from 40GB. There's even a pair of lights that you can use to illuminate the keyboard, which features an extra row of keys that give you the full function-key experience. The 1GB of RAM is about the only constant.

Perhaps the most killer new addition here: Built-in GPS, a rarity in laptops of any size and unheard of in a mini like this. The U820 includes a built-in Garmin receiver and is preloaded with maps of the U.S. and Canada. It works well, and if you find you need a better signal, you can plug an external antenna into the standard microphone jack -- ingenious!  (Source: Christopher Null, Yahoo Tech)

I took posssession of my U820 last week. It's really nice, and I can even get a GPS signal in my house without the antenna. The screen could be brighter and more evenly backlit, but that's my only real complaint about the device.
