Fujitsu S2000
3 weeks ago, I posted regarding Fujitsu-Siemens is taking orders for their desktop models Esprimo E small form-factor PC and Esprimo P tower models with AMD processors, after just 2 weeks AMD filing suit against Intel. In fact, before this lawsuit been filed, AMD claimed that Fujitsu-Siemens was hiding its AMD computers on its website and removing all references to commercial AMD-powered products in the company’s retail catalog because Intel offered Fujitsu-Siemens a ‘special discount‘ on Celeron processors.

So, as we can see, Fujitsu-Siemens started taking order for desktop PC models and now Fujitsu started selling AMD Turionâ„¢ 64 based laptop on their website within only 1 month. :)

The Fujitsu LifeBook S2000 series features AMD Turionâ„¢ 64 mobile technology, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit applications. With its 64-bit Turionâ„¢ processors, MT-28, S2000 runs at 1.6GHz with 512KB L2 cache. It has 512MB ( 2 x 256MB ) DDR333 memory too.
