We're all about giving ya options, and we're certainly down with speedy upgrades, and Fujitsu
is making sure both areas of greatness are covered in its newly-unveiled LifeBook
. The T4215 takes over where the mediocre T4210
left off, but offers up a plethora of new hardware choices, and even promises a respectable battery life. The convertible
will sport a trio of 12.1-inch LCD options, including XGA for indoor and / or outdoor use and SXGA+ for indoors, Intel's T5500/T5600/T7200/T7400 Core 2 Duo
processors, "up to 120GB" hard drive, up to 4GB of DDR2 RAM, gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/b/g, and the obligatory inclusion of Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. The device is slated to look like a long-lost twin of the prior model, but manages to trim 0.2 pounds from its arguably bulky frame; moreover, the 6-cell Li-ion cell promises "up to six hours" of life, but we'd be happy with just under four. While we aren't sure if this newest addition to the T-Series
lineup will be available before the holiday rush, you can expect it to run you $1,799 (and way, way up) whenever it drops.
