Fujitsu LifeBook MH380 netbook latest on the Pine Trail train

We were less than impressed with Fujitsu's first attempt at a netbook, the Atom N270-based Amilo Mini Ui 3520, and so we're hoping the company makes a stronger showing with their Atom N450-powered Fujitsu LifeBook MH380.  The MH380 has a 10.1-inch, 1366 x 768 display, a 250GB hard-drive and 1GB of memory, as well as Intel's newest Pine Trail 1.66GHz processor.

The 2.97lb netbook is also said to manage up to 7hrs of runtime with its standard 6-cell battery, and we're glad to see Fujitsu have made both WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth standard.

OS is Windows 7 Starter, there's a webcam and the usual selection of ports - including VGA, USB 2.0 and audio in/out - and the standard finish is a glossy ruby red with chrome accents.  Fujitsu will begin selling the LifeBook MH380 from January, priced at $449.
