Fujitsu LifeBook A1120: bring color 'back to life' with ugly lids

Fujitsu have announced a new notebook in their LifeBook range, setting itself the arduous task of "bringing colors back to life".  The Fujitsu LifeBook A1120 attempts that resuscitation with three interchangeable lids, while underneath lurks an Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor, up to 4GB of memory and up to 250GB of SATA 5,400rpm hard-drive.


Three lids are bundled in with the LifeBook A1120, in "Pink with Butterfly patterns", "Royal Blue with Loyal Art patterns" and "Green with Labyrinth patterns".  Frankly there's more than a little marketing hyperbole in Fujitsu describing them as "alluring colors and patterns" that will "leave you spoilt for choice."  Unfortunately the company doesn't actually bother with photos of anything other than the pink lid, which seems a little short-sighted given the notebook's selling point is meant to be its appearance.

Other specs include a 15.6-inch 1366 x 768 LCD with 220 nits brightness, 350:1 contrast ratio and a 60-percent color gamut, driven by Intel's GMA X4500MHD video chipset.  There's also a 1.3-megapixel webcam, DVD burner, Bluetooth 2.1 and onboard microphone.  No word on pricing for the Fujitsu LifeBook A1120 as yet.
