For several months now, Fujitsu has been giddy about an ultraportable thats no thicker than a magazine and can be carried just like one.
True to that promise, the Fujitsu LifeBook Q2010 is officially the lightest notebook Ive ever seen with a 12.1-inch screen. This portability, however, comes at a high price ($3,199 direct).
The LifeBooks feathery 2.2-pound chassis barely applied any pressure to my scale. With the AC adapter, the travel weight is still only 3 pounds. You will want to add the six-cell battery to your travel bag, which Ill talk about later, bringing the system weight up to 2.7 pounds.
At just ¾-inch thick, the laptops chassis is truly an engineering marvel and ranks right up there with an elite few, such as the Gateway E-100M and the Toshiba R200.
Shoehorned into a rugged magnesium frame, the 12.1-inch transflective widescreen is a fine canvas for displaying your photos and watching movies, as well as for reading e-mails and Web pages. Still, I found the keyboard somewhat cramped for typing.
