If you’re going to sell a laptop for nearly three grand you better be confident in what you’re making. By dubbing the Lifebook Q2010 ‘the world’s most desirable laptop’ Fujitsu Siemens clearly shows it IS.
How can a product ever live up to such a tag? Well, you’ll have to admit the photo above is a rather good start and looking closer things only get batter.
While fat celebrities may get Photoshopped to shave off those telltale pounds the ‘black piano lacquer’ finished Q2010 is no cheat. It measures a waif-like 29.7 x 21.9cm and is just 1.8cm thick. The weight: a solitary kilogram. This malnourished supermodel punches well above its weight too being based on the Intel’s upcoming 945GMS chipset which is designed for ULV (Ultra Low Voltage) versions of the Core Duo processor. A gig of RAM will also come as standard.
As for the LCD, the fitted 12.1in WXGA (1366 x 768) screen is about the perfect size/resolution compromise and it will come with embedded UMTS making it capable of surfing on 3G mobile phone networks. A fingerprint scanner handles security and - given its portability - FS has made the smart decision to integrate a pair of microphones for VoIP which should improve noise cancellation and boost sound quality.
Despite being far too thin to support a built in DVD drive (one comes on a port replicator), nothing else appears to be missing. There’s Bluetooth 2.0, wireless g, Gigabit Ethernet, and – get this – claims that the six cell battery will let owners work for up to eight hours on a single charge! If the Q2010 manages even 60 per cent of that FS will have performed miracles.
Out in Q2 and available in limited quantities only, does anyone still think £3,000 is an unreasonable price tag?
Anyone at all… …?
A single dissenting voice…?
