The first details about Fujitsu's first netbook, the Amilo Min, were published online. This new netbook weighs 1kg and will have a 8.9" LCD display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution along with a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor.
While most netbooks sport a solid state disks, Fujitsu opted for a 60GB 3600RPM HDD or a 80GB 4200RPM model. Other features include a 1.3 megapixel webcam, 802.11b/g WiFi, ExpressCard slot, USB 2.0 ports and VGA out. The Fujitsu Amilo Mini will retail for around $585.
It's ironic that Fujitsu has decided to enter into the netbook market; it has previously spoken out against both SSDs and netbooks. Fujitsu's Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product management said, "We’re sitting on the sidelines not because we’re lazy. We’re sitting on the sidelines because even if this category [netbooks and SSDs] takes off, and we get our piece of the pie, it doesn’t add up. It’s a product that essentially has no margin." AMD has also decided against pursuing the netbook market.
