Fujitsu EK30T All-in-One
Fujitsu today introduced an all-in-one PC meant to satisfy the frequently space-limited Japanese. Its EK30T draws upon design principles similar to Apple's iMac and mounts the entire computer vertically behind the display, including the optical drive. Fujitsu's system, however, is intended as a basic PC and emphasizes cost over features. The 17-inch EK model is driven by a 1.46GHz Celeron M and is supported by 512MB of RAM as well as an 80GB hard drive. While modest at best, the system is also very energy-efficient, according to Fujitsu. At peak load, the computer draws no more than 82W of power. This most recent all-in-one ships from Fujitsu today for the equivalent of $1,111 US, a low price for the Japanese market. Images of the side and back are available after the jump.
