The Fujitsu offerings, some of which are now available and some of which will arrive in the coming weeks, are the LifeBook T4410 and T4310, which are enterprise- and consumer-focused versions of convertible tablet PCs; the 15.6-inch LifeBook A1220 desktop replacement; a glossy, 10.1-inch M2011 netbook; and an also glossy, 3.5-pound LifeBook P3010 ultrathin notebook. On the same day, Gateway introduced a new line of notebooks called the EC Series, which focus on reducing energy consumption and extending battery life. The three models in the series are said to offer 6 to 8 hours of battery life.
