Fujitsu unveils ruby red LifeBook MH380 netbook; Intel Atom N450
Andrew Nusca writes about Fujitsu’s new LifeBook MH380 netbook product, which is built with Intel’s new Atom N450 processor.
“The ruby red 10.1-inch system weighs 2.97 lbs. and offers an HD (1366×768) display, 250GB storage, 1GB memory, 802.11 b/g/n wireless connectivity, integrated Webcam, Bluetooth, Windows 7 Starter and up to seven hours of battery life. The LifeBook MH380 is priced at $449 and will be available in January.”
“We’re gearing up for CES 2010, which means the race to show off an even thinner ‘worlds thinnest’ LCD TV panel is heating up – and it looks like LG’s taking an early lead by announcing a new 42-inch 1080p panel that’s just 2.6mm (.1 inch) thin. The prototype LED-backlit 120Hz display weighs just under 8.8 pounds , but we don’t have any other specs on it just yet – but we’re sure we’ll find out far more 17 days from now in Vegas.”
Scott Gilbertson writes that Mozilla has just released its fifth beta versio of its next browser, Firefox.
“Firefox 3.6 has seen more than 100 bugfixes since beta 4, including improvements in Firefox’s performance, stability, and security. If you’d like to take beta 5 for a spin, head over to the Mozilla downloads page or just wait for your current Firefox 3.6 beta to automatically update. Five betas is an unusually high number for a Firefox release, but the latest package clears most of the remaining blocking bugs. This means the final release of Firefox 3.6 is likely just around the corner.”
