Fujitsu's lightweight LifeBook Q2010 takes advantage of Intel's new ULV Core Solo processor

For those of you out there who just have to have the latest and greatest in ultra-portable notebooks, look no further than Fujitsu's new 12.1" widescreen LifeBook Q2010. The ULV Intel Core Solo powered Q2010 weighs in a feathery 2.2 pounds due to its magnesium alloy frame and is only 0.75" thick.

But before you start breaking out the champagne in celebration, here comes the bad news. There's no optical drive, but that shouldn't come as a surprise to you at all. There's also no LAN port, modem, or VGA connector on the notebook -- these features can be accessed, however, with a dongle. The included 3-cell battery (1150mAh) provides a paltry 1.5 hours of run time although Fujitsu expects to make available a 6-cell battery (5200mAh) to provide up to 7 hours of run time. I would consider the 6-cell battery mandatory for anyone on the go.

On the other hand, a biometric fingerprint sensor, Intel 3945ABG wireless and Bluetooth v2.0 are included. Also included are integrated high bandwidth WWAN (UMTS), HSDPA, EDGE and GPRS support. A dual-layer DVD burner is available with the optional dock.

Although Fujitsu hasn't announced official pricing yet, Laptop Logic expects for the LifeBook Q2010 to hover around the $2,000 mark when it is introduced this summer.  Sony's 12" VAIO runs approximately $2,600.
