Fujitsu's new T-Series models feature Celeron M, Core Solo power

With the release of Windows Vista just around the corner, many new notebook and desktop system will be announced from a variety of OEMs. Fujitsu has shown off its new Loox T-Series sub-notebooks which will come pre-loaded with Vista Home Premium.

The tiny notebook will be available in four models: the T50/T50U and T70/T70U. The T50 comes with a 1.2GHz Celeron M processor, 512MB of memory and a 60GB hard drive. The T70 ups the ante with a 1.2GHz Core Solo processor, 1GB of RAM and an 80GB hard drive. All models will come with a multi-format DVD burner while the "U" designation on some models signifies an optional 1Seg TV tuner.

The new Loox notebooks weigh in at just 2.6 pounds and can operate for up to 4.8 hours when using the Core Solo processor.

Pricing has not been released but should be available closer to the retail launch of Vista.

I think it's a fair question, given that another poster "TomZ" has been praising Vista, is believed to work for Microsoft, and failed to disclose this in any of his posts.

Or it could just be the fact that Vista takes roughly 6 minutes to startup on my Thinkpad T42 1.7Ghz Centrino. By startup I mean all icons in bottom right are loaded, hard drive isn't continously swapping, the OS is ready to use.

But the drawing of that dark screen asking permission to do something does go pretty fast. So does IE 7.0. Maybe it's not so much that programs are running slower, as it is my CPU and hard drive seem constantly in use even when I'm not doing anything (indexing, perhaps?). That might take some getting used to. As will the new start menu. While the old one had like 4 columns and took up the whole screen, at least I could remember where everything was. Now I have to scroll up and down to look for it, or do a search. Frequent mouse to keyboard switching is not my cup of tea. Nor is the lack of an "up" button in explorer. The breadcrumb navigation effectively has an up button, yes, but it's always in a different place. I might as well switch to OS X if I weren't so happy with Windows XP.
