Fujitsu/Siemens today dropped its Seimens branding from its notebook range as it launched a revamped product selection.
This includes the first new notebook products since the two companies' merger at the beginning of October.
The company has decided to continue Fujitsu's Lifebook notebook branding and has launched three new lines including a touchscreen mini notebook, a lightweight Pentium III notebook and a new entry level system aimed at price-sensitive users.
The Lifebook S series weighs 1.7kg and is, the company claims, the lightest Pentium III notebook in the world.
It has a flexible configuration option (the ability to swap CD, CD-RW, DVD, superdisk, PC card bay and a CCD camera in the spare bay) as well as Bios-level security. It includes an Intel mobile Pentium III 450MHz processor, 6Gb HD and 64Mb memory.
Also launched today is the Lifebook C series, an entry level notebook including ease of use features such as fast start buttons. The notebook includes an Intel mobile Pentium II 366MHz processor or an Intel mobile Celeron 400MHz processor, and has an integrated modem.
The Lifebook B series, also launched today, is a touchscreen mini notebook. It weighs 1.4kg and has around three hours of battery life. Including an Intel mobile Celeron 400MHz processor, the notebook features a 10.4 inch TFT with touch screen, 64Mb of memory, a built-in V.90 modem and a 6Gb HD.
New light-guiding nanoscale device can control and monitor a nanoparticle trapped in a laser beam with high sensitivity
Optical traps are scientific instruments in which a focused laser beam is used to exert an attractive or repulsive force on a microscopic object to hold it in place
Scientists estimate that the exoplanet has already lost up to 35 per cent of its mass over its lifetime
The observations were made using the Atacama Array in the Chilean desert
J1043+2408 was observed for more than 10 years, and its radio light curve exhibited a periodic signal repeating in about 563 days
