Fujitsu Lifebooks Cram Pico Projector into Optical Drive Bay
April 23rd, 2011
I know that there are many business users that travel all around giving presentations for one thing or another. If you’re one of these people, or have sat through any of them you know that a projector is almost always required for a bunch of folks to see what you are showing at one time. The problem is toting that projector around with you through the airport and around the office can be a pain.
Fujitsu has unveiled two new notebook computers that both have the option of removing the optical drive and putting a little pico projector in its place. The tiny LED projector slides out of the optical drive bay and has a resolution of 800 x 600. I think most folks will be able to live without an optical drive, especially during business presentations.
The S761 is a 13.3″ screen notebook with 1366 x 768 resolution, 1GB of RAM, 160GB of storage and it can be fitted with a Celeron B810, Core i3-2310M or a Core i5-2520M. The smaller P771 has a 12.2-inch screen, and the other features are the same. Both models will hit Japan in mid-May, unfortunately with high prices to go with. The S761 will retail for ¥219,450 (appx. $2680 USD), and the P771 will go for ¥255,150 (appx. $3100).
