Fujitsu updates Loox, Biblio laptops


Fujitsu looks to be clearing house with its latest round of laptop upgrades, announcing a slew of new models packing various degrees of improvements. Standing out the most from the pack is the ultraportable Loox T70U (pictured above), weighing in at a mere 2.6 pounds with a 10.6-inch XGA display, 1.2GHz Core Solo U1400 processor, Intel 945GMS Express chipset, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, a DVD burner, built-in webcam and, perhaps most importantly, a promised 10.4 hours of battery life. Also announced in the same form factor are the Loox T50UV and Loox T50, which dial things back to the Celeron level and cut a few hours off the battery life. For those not as concerned with portability, Fujitsu's let loose a number of new models in its Biblio line, including the MB75U, MG55U, MG50U/V, and MG50U, all packing 14.1-inch XGA displays and processors ranging from a lowly Celeron M430 all the way up to a Core 2 Duo T5600. Rounding out the lineup is the Loox P70U/V convertible tablet PC (check it out after the break), with an 8.9-inch WXGA display and Core Solo U1400 processor, and the "WEB Mart limited model" Loox Q, with a 12.1-inch display and the same Core Solo U1400 CPU. Look for the whole lot of them to be available later this month (in Japan, of course) with prices ranging from 180,000 to 280,000 Yen ($1,500 to $2,300).
