Fujitsu has announced its new LifeBook P7230 ultraportable notebook computer. Instead of being another bulked-up “desktop replacement” with a huge display and multiple drive bays, the P7230 looks too keep things small and light—under three pounds—while offering road warriors the raw computing power to get their work done without a suffering a back injury.

“The LifeBook P7230 notebook goes beyond other small and light mobile notebooks by offering the unmatched flexibility of a removable media drive or dual battery configuration,” said Paul Moore, Fujitsu’s senior director of mobile product marketing, in a statement. “For professionals who are constantly on the go, a lightweight notebook with full functionality and the ability to support a second battery is not just a convenience, it’s a necessity.”

Under the hood, the P7230 sports an Intel Core Solo U1400 Ulta-Low Voltage processor running at 1.2 GHz, and ships with Vista Home Basic, Vista Business, or Windows XP Professional. The notebook uses a 10.6-inch XGA display, 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1394 port along with a video out, modem, and audio in/out. The P7230 also offers dual built-in mics and stereo speakers, and users can load up media from SD, Memory Stick Pro, and xD media. Also included: Trusted Platform Module and a fingerprint reader.

Outside, the P7230 is just 1.17 inches thick (15 percent thinner than its forerunners) and offers a modular device bay which can handle a dual-layer DVD writer or a second battery, which would pump the P7230’s operating time to as much as 9.75 hours. Users can use their battery power more efficiently with a proprietary “Eco” button which puts the system into a power-saving mode, reducing power consumption, powering down the optical drive, and reducing display output.

Base configurations for the LifeBook P7230 start at $1,699, and they’re available now in “leather black” or “leather white.”
