Fujitsu LifeBook P5020 is One of the Best Ultralight Notebook Computers

Fujitsu LifeBook P5020

The Fujitsu LifeBook P5020 is an interesting machine that I discovered while reading the April 2004 edition of Mobile PC Magazine. Weighing in at only 3.9 pounds, the P5020 sports a 10.6-inch letterbox-format TFT display, a 1-Gigahertz Pentium M CPU, 512-Megabytes of RAM, and a full size keyboard. It has a 60-Gigabyte hard drive and a removable CD-RW/DVD drive that can be swapped for a second battery. For card-based expandability, it supports both Compact Flash and Secure Digital/MMC cards. It also provides S-Video-out, VGA-out, FireWire, and 802.11b support.

DesignTechnica reviewed the LifeBook P5020 back in December and awarded it 9 out of 10 stars, calling it the "Mini Cooper of the laptop world." If you've tried to travel with a desktop replacement before and you're looking for something much more compact but still quite usable, the LifeBook 5020 is a great choice. It's got more connectivity options on board than any other ultralight I've ever seen.
