Fujitsu keeps the cheap laptops coming

The new Fujitsu LifeBook A6110 costs just $849.

LifeBook A6110: Autumnal glow not included Fujitsu

Hot on the heels of the $799 LifeBook V1010, Fujitsu has announced the $849 LifeBook A6110. Like its sibling, the A6110 features a 15.4-inch display and built-in DVD burner; its higher cost can be attributed largely to its current-generation Core 2 Duo processor and Mobile Intel GM965 Express chipset. Other key features of the 6.6-pound A6110 include integrated Intel X3100 graphics, a large 160GB hard drive, five USB 2.0 ports, a built-in Webcam, and a slot for both PC Cards and ExpressCards. Higher-end models include Fujitsu's unique point-and-write touchpad.

The LifeBook A6110's base configuration includes just 1GB of RAM, which is a little less than we'd prefer on a Windows Vista machine; an extra 50 bucks will double your RAM and add 802.11n compatibility, and it may be worth the cost. We're expecting a review unit in CNET Labs soon and will give you the full report once we've run it through our benchmarks.
