Fujitsu is preparing to launch its first Intel Atom powered netbook in the United States. The company’s Loox M series mini-notebook has already been announced for other parts of the globe, but now it looks like the M2010 is coming to America as well.
The netbook is pretty much standard fare. It packs a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 576 pixel display, a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, GB of RAM, and 160GB hard drive. It has 3 USB ports, a multi-format card reader, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 3 cell battery which Fujitsu says its good for a whopping 2.5 hours.
The netbook measures 10.2 ” x 7.4″ x 1.3″ and weighs about 2.5 pounds. And it has a suggested retail price of $449. Honestly, can anyone think of a good reason to buy this netbook? You know, aside from the moderately attractive red paint job?
