Fujitsu Computer Systems has introduced four desktop-replacement portables with wide-aspect-ratio displays and Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005, priced to appeal to students and home users as well as video enthusiasts and gamers. The LifeBook N3410 combines Intel's Pentium M 740 (1.73GHz) processor, Graphics Media Accelerator 900 video, and Pro/Wireless 2200BG WiFi with a 15.4-inch, 1,280 by 800-pixel Crystal View screen; it starts at $1,199 after a mail-in rebate. The N3520 ups the ante with a CRT-quality, Color-Enhanced Crystal View 15.4-inch display, Pentium M 750 (1.86GHz) power, and ATI Mobility Radeon X300 with 128MB HyperMemory technology; it starts at $1,449 with 512MB of DDR-2, an 80GB hard disk, and DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive and peaks at $2,029 with 1MB of memory, 100GB hard and dual-layer DVD±RW drives, and a built-in TV tuner with remote control.
The LifeBook N6110 and N6220 pair the Pentium M 750 with a 17-inch, 1,440 by 900-resolution Crystal View screen; the former uses Intel integrated graphics, the latter ATI's 256MB HyperMemory Mobility Radeon X600. The N6220 also offers internal TV tuner and dual-hard-drive options as well as stereo speakers with a subwoofer. After-rebate prices for the pair start at $1,299 and $1,649, respectively; a LifeBook N6220 with the works -- 1GB of memory, two 100GB hard drives, a DVD burner and TV tuner with remote -- is $2,399 after rebate.
