Fujitsu Offers A Dual-Core Laptop For Less Than $900

The LifeBook A6110 features an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, shock sensor technology, a spill-resistant keyboard, and a biometric fingerprint swipe.

Fujitsu Computer Systems on Tuesday added the LifeBook A6110 to its low-priced laptop lineup.

The 15.4-inch LifeBook A6110 starts at $849 with a $50 rebate and is available beginning this week.

The laptop has an energy-efficient Intel Core 2 Duo processor, shock sensor technology that protects the hard drive from bumps and drops, a spill-resistant keyboard, and a biometric fingerprint swipe for security and password management.

For those who are often on the road and require remote Internet access, the LifeBook A6110 offers several options, including wireless local area network connectivity via Atheros' Super AG Wireless LAN, Gigabit Ethernet LAN connectivity, and Wi-Fi connectivity via quad-mode Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN. It also has the ability to work with gear based on 802.11n, a faster update to popular Wi-Fi standard 802.11a/b/g. The laptop also can handle both PC Cards and ExpressCards, according to Fujitsu.

Additionally, Fujitsu is offering an optional built-in camera and digital microphone, a Point and Write touch pad for short note taking, and Intel Turbo Memory for faster boot time and longer battery life.

Fujitsu in February unveiled the LifeBook P7230 laptop, targeting mobile professionals who want elegance and functionality. But that laptop uses a single-core processor, the Intel Core Solo U1400, which limits performance. With an affordable price tag and a dual-core processor, the LifeBook A6110 may be a better alternative.
