Fujitsu to launch tablet PC on Aug. 8

Fujitsu will launch a new tablet PC on August 8, the company said Tuesday.

Fujitsu will launch a new tablet PC in August, the company's South Korean unit confirmed on Tuesday after information about the system leaked onto the Web.

Details of the computer, called the Lifebook P1510, appeared on a South Korean Web site late last week but have since been removed at Fujitsu's request, said Shin Dong-Yung, a spokesman for Fujitsu Korea in Seoul. Information regarding the computer was shared with the site "unofficially," and the machine has not yet been officially announced by Fujitsu, he said.

The computer is scheduled to be launched August 8 in South Korea and other countries, Dong-Yung said, without specifying which other countries.

While Fujitsu wouldn't confirm details about the computer, the original Web posting, which included pictures of the machine, showed a compact tablet PC with a convertible form factor. Such computers can be used as laptops or, with the screen swiveled around and folded down onto the keyboard, as a tablet PC.

The computer is based on a 1.2GHz Pentium M processor, has a 60GB hard-disk drive and 512MB of main memory, according to the South Korean Web site. It measures 23.2 centimeters by 16.7 cms by 3.5 cms and weighs 990 grams, the site said.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
