Fujitsu has updated their 17″ widescreen desktop replacement N6000 series, the newest available notebooks in this line are the N6210 and N6110.

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.
