Fujitsu introduces mid-size LifeBook laptop

Fijitsu says that the 15.6 inch notebook offers a little more muscle for your money, with the $1,199 LifeBook AH530 packing a Core i5 processor and 500GB hard drive.

It doesn’t seem like long ago that the first $1,000 notebook brought forth howls of protest throughout laptop land.

Well, those were howls of protest from the notebook manufacturers who didn’t have a $1,000 dollar deal claiming that there would now be a race to the bottom, profits and margins were being sacrificed, yadda yadda yadda.

We people who buy notebooks were howling with delight, of course. And naturally it wasn’t long before every notebook manufacturer was playing at the affordable end of town – and they soon discovered that while margins might be lower, sales will be higher.

Fast forward to today, and what you can get for around the $1,000 mark is truly astounding. It’s also proof why notebooks are far outselling desktops.
