Fujitsu has released its new LifeBook T730 with a starting price of $1,869.
Rumours of the T730 surfaced back in April, but it’s only now that full details of the specifications have been unveiled.
Users have a choice of processors: Intel Core i5-520M, i5-540M or i7-620M, with the latter two being an extra $50 or $150 respectively on the starting price. The new tablet PC has a 12.1-inch WXGA LED backlight bright LCD with wide-viewing angles for better outdoor viewing as standard, but the wide-viewing can be subtracted to save $100. Optional webcams on both versions of the screen can be chosen for free.
You can choose between 2GB and 8GB of DDR3 RAM, with the latter costing an extra $600. For storage the choices are between 150GB and 500 GB HDD or 128GB SSD. The latter will set you back an extra $380.
Intel HD Graphics and an active digitiser for pen input also come as standard, while there is an option for a dual digitizer for pen and multitouch gestures for an extra $100.
Connectivity-wise the T730 has a number of options, including Intel Centrino Advanced-N WLAN or Atheros XSPAN for WiFi. If you choose Intel Centrino you can get a free Intel vPro upgrade as part of the package. Bluetooth and Ethernet come as standard. There are also three USB ports, as well as a VGA and HDMI port.
The main battery is a lithium ion 6-cell 5200 mAh. There is an option to add a modular bay 6-cell 3800 mAh battery for an extra $134. This will add roughly four hours onto the five and half hour life of the main battery.
