Fujitsu Siemens has added two new models
to its Lifebook line, both with Intel Core Duo processors. The Lifebook S7110 is powered by an Intel Core Duo
T2500/T2300, has a 14.1-inch widescreen display, comes with up to 4GB of RAM, and includes a dual-layer DVD drive. The
Lifebook E8210 is powered by a T2600/T2400, and includes a 15.4-inch display, ATI Mobility Radeon X1400, up to 4GB of
RAM and a dual-layer burner or DVD/CD-RW drive. Both are expected to sell for between $2,000 and $3,000. Fujitsu
Siemens also said that that the company is currently in talks with Microsoft to develop UMPC models, which execs say
they see more as a high-end PDA and less as a full-fledged computer, meaning they don't see it as competition for
Fujitsu SIemens' existing line of tablet PCs.
