Fujitsu has stayed committed to Windows-based tablet PC's longer than most, and it's not stopping now. The company has just made its new LifeBook T900 series available on its Website, a 13.3-inch portable most notable for packing some of Intel's latest mobile processors. Fujitsu offers a pair of base configurations: Both sport a Core i5-520M CPU, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 160GB hard drive, DVD writer, and LED-backlit display and run Windows 7 Professional. The $1,989 version offers capacitive multi-touch screen capabilities in addition to pen input, while you get pen input only for $100 less. Upgrade options include Core i5-540M and Core i7-620M processors, up to 8GB of RAM, hard drives up to 500GB capacity, or a 64GB or 128GB solid state drive. Not surprisingly given the form factor, you're stuck with integrated graphics, though this might be a gamer's last choice for a fragging system.

While Fujitsu has beefed up its tablet, it's whittled the netbook down to the LifeBook UH900 (pictured above), which also has that multi-touch screen, though it's damn near Lilliputian at just 5.6 inches. The company calls it a mini-notebook, or you could think of it as a MID, but whatever it is, it's equipped like a netbook save for the tiny LCD. It comes with an Intel Atom Z530 processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 62GB solid state drive, built-in GPS receiver, and Windows 7 Home Premium. How you're really going to easily operate a Windows 7 system on a microscopic screen is a major question, but if you're up for the challenge, Futjisu is selling the UH900 for $849 after a $50 instant discount and $100 mail-in rebate.

  • Can it run Linux?

    OMG- this thing is SO cute! I've been waiting for a tiny notebook with a solid state drive. This one is tempting. It's small enough to fit in my purse...
    But Windows 7 doesn't do it for me, I would really like to put Ubuntu on it. I have an Aspire One netbook and it runs a whole heck of a lot faster and better since I ditched XP and put Ubuntu on it.

    Sony tried this stuff a while back - now you can't find them anywhere - and Sony isn't making anymore.
