Fujitsu launches P7230 ultraportable MacBook rival

Fujitsu LifeBook P7230

Fujitsu ended speculation today by formally announcing its new LifeBook P7230. The 10.6-inch widescreen was custom-designed by the company's product head for a clean look and closely resembles the MacBook, shipping in either solid black or white colors. Befitting its size, however, the Japan-made ultraportable is designed for longevity and travel. A 1.2GHz ultra-low voltage Core Solo gives it an average 6 hours of battery life when using a standard battery; using a lower-capacity but lighter battery, the new LifeBook weighs as little as 2.6 pounds despite carrying a DVD rewriter and 80GB hard drive. Bluetooth and a webcam are equally built in.

The P7230 is already in Taiwan stores at a price of $2,030 with 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and Windows Vista Business. A release in North America and other regions, including its home of Japan, are likely in the near future. [via DigiTimes]
