New Fujitsu Lifebook S7020 Due in May With Intel Sonoma Pentium M

The Fujitsu S7000 series is a thin and light 14″ screen Pentium M based notebook series.  Fujitsu today announced that they will be giving the S7000 line a refresh by releasing the S7020 this May, the S7010 is the current selling model.  The S7020 will have the latest Intel Sonoma Pentium M platform processors, 3 different screen options (XGA, XGA with CrystalView and SXGA), ExpressCard slot, dual pointing devices, SD/MemoryStick card reader built-in, FireWire, Wireless, S-Video out and the same great design and light weight that the S7000 series is known for.  This is a great laptop and well worth a look at for those who are business professionals that like a bit more style than maybe an IBM ThinkPad offers.


Toshiba Satellite R15 Tablet PC, HP TC 4200 Tablet PC Pics and Specs

My good friend Barry runs the site and last week I forgot to notify everyone about the fact he had the brand new Toshiba Satellite R15 in hand and has posted many pictures and the specs for this notebook / Tablet PC convertible.  The great thing about this device is how affordable it is.  For $1500 you get a Pentium M Sonoma based machine that can work as a Tablet PC or as a Notebook.

I actually had a chance to play with the brand new HP TC4200 Tablet PC / Notebook convertible while in New Orleans last week at the CTIA convention.  HP was nice enough to let me steal their TC 4200 for a few minutes to play with and take pictures.  An article covering the pictures and thoughts can be found here:

Intel Ahead of Schedule on Next Set of 65 Nanometer Produced Processors?

Is it possible that Intel, instead of being behind, is actually ahead of schedule in moving to its latest and greatest 65 nanometer production process that allows them to cram more stuff onto a chip in a smaller area?  This could be the case.  And if this is the case it means that our expectations on dual core and 64-bit processors from Intel could also be ahead of schedule.  Unfortunately for AMD, it seems they really stoked a fire underneath Intel by beating them to the punch with 64-bit processors.


Yet Another Budget Inspiron, The Dell Inspiron 1200

I have a question to all those in peanut gallery, do we really need another budget Dell laptop?  At last look I noticed a Dell Inspiron 1000, 2200, 1100, and Latitude 100L, D505 that all come in under $1000.  Apparently we need more options for badly made notebooks that don’t last more than a year.  The Dell Inspiron 1200 should be revealed soon, it’s not on the front of the Dell website yet, but we found it here:
