Fujitsu Computer Systems unveiled a new notebook computer this week that is designed for the health care industry that has a 12.1" touchscreen display. The new LifeBook B6000 is designed to make working with the interface much easier for doctors and nurses by providing a combination of the touchscreen and a display that is 50% brighter than previous LifeBook notebooks.
The B6000 comes with 2 GB of memory and a Pentium M ULV 753 processor which makes sure it can handle any task the user might need to do. The B6000 is priced at $1,649 only weighs 3.3 pounds making it a highly mobile notebook for health care workers. It appears from information on the Fujitsu web site that the B6000 can only be used in a notebook configuration which is a little odd, it seems a slate configuration would make it more useful for the target market segment. It’s good to see a notebook from a major OEM that incorporates a touchscreen and perhaps this is the beginning of a trend that industry giants have been predicting that all notebook computers will have touchscreens in the not too distant future.
