Fujitsu surprised us this morning with the 16-inch LifeBook N7010, which features a second four-inch touch screen above the keyboard. Fujitsu is calling the sub-display the “Touch Zone”. Interestingly, the touchscreen seems like it acts as a second monitor, so you could replace the default launcher app with anything you choose, even full-screen video. Just drag something down to it.
It’s an interesting design that should take off. Other specs include: 2.26GHz P8400 Core 2 Duo, 256MB ATI Radeon HD 3470 graphics, 4GB RAM, 320GB drive, Blu-ray, 1.3 megapixel webcam, and WiFi / Bluetooth. The Fujitsu LifeBook N7010 will start shipping on November 10th, and is available to order now in the fixed-configuration for $1,499.
