I got a chance to check out Fujitsu’s new MH380 netbook last night, as well as the company’s higher end, but smaller profile Fujitsu UH900 mini-laptop.

Fujitsu introduced the MH380 a few weeks ago. It has an Intel Atom N450 CPU, Windows 7 Starter, and a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 HD display. But the first thing I noticed about the laptop when I saw it in person was the incredibly tiny touchpad that’s offset by a circular indent on the right side. Basically, Fujitsu decided to scrap the traditional scrolling area of a touchpad and replace it with a dedicated scrolling section. If you want to scroll, you place a finger in the indent and swirl clockwise or counterclockwise to go up or down.

The Fujitsu MH380 runs about $449 with a 4 cell battery that’s good for 4.5 hours. A 6 cell battery option is also available.

The company is also showing off the $850 Fujitsu UH900. This little guy has a 5.6 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel HD multitouch display and a 75 key keyboard that’s about 75% full sized. If you find it too small for touch-typing, you can use it as a thumb keyboard fairly easily.

The UH900 has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom Z530 CPU and GMA 500 graphics and runs Windows 7 Starter. It has 2GB of RAM and a 64GB SSD. It weighs 1.2 pounds and gets around 4-5 hours of battery life.

If the $850 price tag seems a bit steep, it’s worth noting that the UH900 also has built-in GPS and Garmin’s GPS software, which makes it sort of two (or more) devices in one. You’d end up spending at least a few hundred dollars on a standalone GPS, and that’s included in the price here. But primarily, Fujitsu is targeting this at niche markets such as healthcare.

You can check out a video overview of these two devices after the break. There’s also a close-up shot of the Fujitsu MH380 touchpad and scrolling area.

  1. Those days, Fujitsu could charge expensive cause they were Made In Japan. They took pride in that and justified their high prices.

    Now, models such as the above, are probably Made in China. But the prices are still high. $449 for a 4 cell is a big joke.

    Soon, nobody would be buying Fujitsu and Sony cause they seem to be still thinking that they are still in the era and age that they are the only one’s that can make ultralight notebooks.

    No wonder why people are moving towards Asus and Acer.

    Sony and Fujitsu, pls hire me. I can do better market research and analysis than your current staff.

    1. All LifeBook notebooks (including the MH380 and UH900 above) are still made in Japan ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. As the previous post states, these are both priced a little too high.

    The only people who are going to buy the ~$850 thing are the same ones who get suckered into the VIAO P; the less than tech savvy people who think that more money buys them better equipment and cutting edge tech…it’s a sad joke.

    Give me an ASUS, ACER, MSI, or Lenovo and I’ll pocket the extra cash.
