Looks like Fujitsu will be rolling out the Lifebook Q2010 in North America. According to CNET News.com, Fujitsu unveiled the Q2010 to a North American audience, complete with information on the CPU that will be driving the ultraportable high-end laptop (high-end as in very small and expensive). Apparently it’s going to use the same CPU that popped up in the Gateway NX100X – an Ulta Low Voltage (ULV) Intel Core Solo CPU that was not formally announced or promoted by Intel, and that does not require an active cooling fan (which helps with noise and battery life). During the announcement/briefing, a price of $1999 was mentioned, however Fujitsu later said that was not finalized.
The Q2010 has a 12.1-inch widescreen display, and comes with a “multilayered piano lacquerâ€ finish and is said to only have limited production runs. Due to its small size and weight (just over two pounds), it doesn’t have an internal optical drive. It’s expected to ship later this coming summer.
