Slim and stylish: Lifebook l2010

Although the Fujitsu L2010 is in essence and looks a transportable slimline PC, it actually uses note­book components and can run from its own six-cell battery.

Targeting niche markets such as trend-setters wanting to integrate a PC into a living space like a kitchen bench or coffee table, the 4.6kg L2010’s high build quality and silver/black colour scheme ooze style.

Our engineering sample configuration (almost identical to what will be available) consisted of a Mobile AMD Athlon XP 1800+ processor, 256MB of DDR SDRAM (of 768MB maximum) and a 40GB hard disk. The ATI AGP 320M graphics controller could be made to steal up to 128MB from main RAM. Put to the test, the L2010 scored 155 in SYSMark 2001 and 1547 in 3DMark 2001 at its maximum resolution of 1024x768 in 32-bit.

The keyboard can attach to the bottom of the 15in display and also folds upwards over half the screen. We’re told that this will cause final models to show the time, date and other functions in the remaining viewable display area. A wireless mouse is included; it utilises a mouse ball rather than an optical sensor.

DVDs can be watched using the slot DVD/CD-RW drive located on the side of the display and heard through the integrated speakers that feature a subwoofer. Connectivity is provided with built-in Wi-Fi, integrated Ethernet and a 56Kbps (V.92) modem. Other connections include three USB 2.0 and FireWire, headphone and microphone ports. Both SD and Memory Stick media are supported, as are two Type II or one Type III PC cards.

In brief: Fujitsu Lifebook L2010
While definitely an appealing slimline unit, the L2010 suffers due to pricing — especially when compared to similarly priced yet more functional devices such as Hi-Grade’s Xperian (reviewed June 2003). A one-year warranty is standard but can be upgraded to three years for $299 (this doesn’t include accidental damage).
Price: $2,999 (with Windows XP Home edition)

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
