Fujitsu P7230 Hits US

Fujitsu today announced that the LifeBook P7230 is now ready for the US. Available last month in southeast Asia, the 10.6-inch widescreen system shares the same minimal design philosophy as the MacBook but reduces size and heaviness: a complete system weighs only 2.6 pounds. The new LifeBook is also one of the few notebooks to ship with an LED backlight that improves battery life and image quality alike, Fujitsu says. Running time is still estimated at a comparatively long 6 hours.

More details and larger photography can be found after the jump.

Similar to the Japanese original, the P7230 ships with a 1.2GHz ultra-low voltage Core Solo processor, 1GB of RAM, and a fingerprint reader. However, the system builder's American launch adds a pair of lower-cost versions meant for less demanding users. A base model with a 40GB hard drive, DVD/CD-RW combo drive, and Vista Home Basic ships later this week for $1,699; a mid-range version at $1,899 adds a 60GB disk, a DVD-RW drive, and Vista Business; and a premium $2,179 model introduces a webcam and port replicator as well as increasing disk space to 80GB. Systems begin shipping later this week.

    The image that they used has a lot of vignetting (the darkening around the edges) which makes it look as if the display has uneven brightness. Tsk-tsk.
