We were expecting to see Fujitsu's U820
break cover this morning, but the company managed to keep another trick up its sleeve: the 16-inch LifeBook N7010, which features a second four-inch touch screen above the keyboard. Interestingly, the touchscreen isn't a SideShow
display, but rather appears as a second monitor -- meaning you can replace the default launcher app with any window of your choosing, including full-screen video. Nifty trick -- we'd have been more into it if it had somehow been combined with the gesture-enabled trackpad, but we'll see if this design takes off. Other specs are nicely on the higher-end of things, if familiar: 2.26GHz P8400 Core 2 Duo, 256MB ATI Radeon HD 3470 graphics, 4GB RAM, 320GB drive, Blu-ray, 1.3 megapixel webcam, and WiFi / Bluetooth. Not bad at all for $1,499 -- too bad we don't have any availability details.
