Frontier's 12.1-inch FRLN ultraportable: can I get a real CPU?

Darren Murph

Hey, we've no qualms with Frontier crafting a 12.1-inch laptop that weighs less than some obese MIDs, but c'mon, a 800MHz Intel A110 processor? Yep, the same chip that resides in quite a few UMPCs has somehow found its way into this creature, along with 1GB of RAM, a WXGA (1,280 x 800) panel, 80GB hard drive, 802.11a/b/g WiFi, 4-in-1 multicard reader, integrated graphics and a built-in 1-watt speaker. Additionally, you'll find an integrated microphone, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, a 56k modem, VGA out and a biometric scanner to keep your files under wraps. Granted, it does weigh just 2.73-pounds, but until this thing gets a handle on the processor situation, we'd divert that ¥129,799 ($1,264) elsewhere.
