Fujitsu rolls AMD-based LifeBook for student set

Fujitsu LifeBook A3130

Fujitsu took a step back today from its Intel-dominated LifeBooks with the launch of the 15.4-inch A3130, the second notebook in its current American line to use an AMD processor. Features strike a balance between performance and price meant to appeal to students: the 2GHz Turion 64 X2 is supported by 2GB of memory in smoothing out the Vista Home Premium experience without a high price. College goers can also use Fujitsu's characteristic handwriting touchpad, which recognizes drawing motions for those courses where diagrams and sketches are essential.

Stock systems ship ready for most serious work with a 120GB hard drive, Bluetooth as well as 802.11g for wireless, and the unusual addition of a fingerprint reader that doubles as a scroll command once the user is already logged in. Fujitsu lists the A3130 as available today for $1,149 and will deliver the reference model soon to US customers.
