New Fujitsu N6210 / N6110 17″ Widescreen Laptops Available

Fujitsu has updated their 17″ widescreen desktop replacement N6000 series, the newest available notebooks in this line are the N6210 and N6110. The most notable change is that the N6000 series has now moved to using Pentium M and not Pentium 4 processors, which means cooler running notebooks and less fan noise, which was a common complaint about the N6010. The coloring on the notebook has changed from a mostly white finish to grey, more media options such as instant-on TV via a built-in TV tuner and MyMedia software (optional). The N6210 features a dedicated ATI X600 graphics card with 128MB of VRAM, while the N6110 uses integrated graphics. Prices start at $1,799 for the N6210 and $1,599 on the N6110.
