Fujitsu laptop strikes (pink) gold

The fashion edition updates its LifeBook P8101E.

Tech Culture

All laptop makers have joined the fashion bandwagon--some later than others--so it's no surprise that Fujitsu is continuing to experiment with its runway persona. The Japanese company has gone through some interesting evolutionary phases of its designer laptops, from finishes in ubiquitous pink to an odd cedar and now precious metals, at least in name.

The Fujitsu LifeBook P8010E has already gotten a good review from CNET (7.5), but its new "Limited Pink Gold Edition" is trying to sell beauty as well as brain and brawn with such aesthetic features as a high-gloss finish and chrome hinges to go with its unusual color. Like the base model, it has a 12.1-inch widescreen, Intel Dual-Core processor, 250GB hard drive, and 2GB of memory, all under 3 pounds. It does add a few internal specs from the previous version, according to BornRich, including a 3G mobile broadband option.

But let's cut to the chase, as Fujitsu does on its site: This laptop, it claims, will "ensure that you'll always be the center of attention." Isn't that what it's all about?
