Fujitsu FMV-BIBLO NF: a widescreen laptop for “both work and play”


Fujitsu is keeping busy today. First they announced some perpendicular hard drives and now they’re unveiling something that could, in the future, receive one of those storage devices. The FMV-BIBLO NF is the latest notebook coming off the Fujitsu assembly line, and they’re marketing it not only at business professionals or at fun teenagers: it’s a laptop “that’s designed for both work and play.” Right, whatever.

Tipping the scales at 6.3 pounds, this laptop rocks a 15.4-inch WXGA display that will suit you just fine, whether you’re entering data in spreadsheets or checking out one of your favourite DVDs. Processing power comes by way of an AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-50, which operates at 1.6 GHz. Graphics are more than adequately covered with the 512MB ATI Radeon Xpress 1150 chip. Some of the other stuff you’ll probably want to know about are the 512MB of DDR2 SDRAM, 100GB HDD, DVD Super-Multi drive, a trio of USB 2.0 ports, all three flavours of WiFi, S-Video out, and a biometric fingerprint reader to boot.

The price isn’t too bad either at $1,575. Look for the Fujitsu FMV-BIBLO NF to ship September 2nd. No word on whether that mouse is a free bonus.
