Fujistu Lifebook P1500 promises to be smallest and lightest convertible notebook
Fujitsu Computer Systems has announced the LifeBook P1500 notebook in the USA. Fujitsu says this is currently the industry's smallest convertible notebook available.

The Fujitsu LifeBook P1500 notebook weighs in 2.2 pounds and is equipped with a compact 8.9" wide SVGA touch screen display. Despite being a convertible model, with a slate form factor, the new model is not a Tablet PC, because of its use of a touchscreen instead of a digitizer.

By using it in tablet mode users will find it easy to navigate through forms-based applications used in healthcare, field and sales force automation and supply chain management, or use the pen stylus and eliminate the need for a notepad and paper archives.

"The market continues to embrace mobility as organizations explore new ways to enhance productivity," said Richard Shim, senior research analyst for personal computing at IDC. "By further enhancing the benefits of a fully functional notebook in an even smaller and more convenient form factor, tablets can expand the possibilities for improving the way people work."

The LifeBook P1500 notebook is powered by the Intel Pentium M Processor Ultra Low Voltage 753 and 915GMS chipset with up to 1GB of system memory. Designed for the highly mobile user, this ultra-portable convertible delivers an extended battery life of up to seven hours, a shock-mounted hard drive, all secured with embedded Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and a biometric fingerprint swipe sensor. It also comes with built-in modem, LAN and optional Atheros Super AG WLAN with dual diversity antenna.

It runs Microsoft Windows XP Professional, enabling inking and note-taking with support for included third-party applications EverNote Plus 1.0 for Windows note management software, ritePen 2.5 for handwriting recognition and Fortune Fountain DialKeys which provide on-screen keyboards and thumbpads.

The LifeBook P1500 notebook is available through the Fujitsu direct sales force, Web site and channel partners with pricing starting at US$1,499 for a base configuration.
