The Inbox (Fujitsu tablets, ASUS gaming, and more)

Let the games begin! ASUS is making concrete their upcoming G70 gaming laptop says Engadget. This 17-incher looks nice, is heavier than Ally Mc Beal, and of course costs a lot. More on this at Electronista, and the aptly named PC Launches.

The good people of PC Connection and Mac Connection are offering free shipping for the month of May for all online orders over $99.

New tablets are coming! The Tablets are coming! No, we are not talking about a rehash of some 50s bad scifi movie or the aliens with a similar name at Farscape, which apparently is making a web-only comeback. But two new Fujitsu tablet PC are coming! They are the T2010 and U810. Prices of course start in four figures. More on these at Slash Gear.

It's a small world for tiny PCs, but Gizmodo makes a big deal of out tech support issues. Where is our EeePC review unit? :)

On the other end of the specturm, is a 17" laptop too small? Then how about 18.4" widescreen? That's what the new Acer Aspire 8920G has, more details at Engadget. Use an EeePC after that and it will fill like you are typing on one of those tiny Casio watch keyboards ;-)

And now a potential notebook bargain, the ThinkPad R61e 7650 Notebook is offered by Buy.com for $400. This is an older laptop but has the benefit of running Windows XP Pro out of the box. The processor is a Celeron 540 crunching at 1.86GHz. It has a 15.4" widescreen, 512mb RAM (oh how old school!), 80gb disk, cd burner with dvd-rom, ethernet, b/g wireless, and such. So if you can live without a dvd burner, without a lot of memory, without Vista, and without a dual-core processor, take a look :) Shipping is free.
