Fujitsu have outed two new notebooks, the AMILO Pi 3560 and 3660, with optional Blu-ray, HDMI connectivity and NVIDIA GeForce GT240M 1GB graphics.  The AMILO Pi 3560 has a choice of 15.6 or 16-inch 16:9 LED-backlit displays, while the AMILO Pi 3660 has an 18.4-inch 16:9 display; both have standard WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth.

There's also a 1.3-megapixel webcam, microphone array and eSATA port, together with a spill-proof keyboard.  Each uses an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with up to 8GB of RAM and a choice of 320GB or 500GB hard-drives.  Connectivity includes an S/PDIF port and 5-in-1 memory card reader.

There's a particular Fujitsu "style" at the moment for its notebook range, and you either love it or you hate it.  We're not sure how much the two AMILO Pi notebooks retail for as yet; we'll update once we hear back from Fujitsu.
