The Fujitsu AH572 was first announced all the way back at CES in January of this year along with 3 other Sandy Bridge Fujitsu Models (NH751, P771, andT901). Prior to this week, the NH571 and P771 had already shipped but the 3D AH572 and the Tablet T901 had yet to be sent off by Fujitsu. However, now it looks like the T901 is the only one of the quartet stuck at home, as the AH572 is now shipping through Fujitsu’s website.
The LifeBook AH572 comes with a Sandy Bridge Core i5-2410M processor, Intel HD 3000 Graphics, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 500GB HDD, HDMI, WiDi, and USB 3.0. The laptop is set apart by its 15.6” display with a 1366x768 pixel resolution and a 3D XPOL filter. The display does require a pair of included glasses to utilize the 3D capabilities; however, it is also one of the few laptops that we’ve come across that doesn’t just display 3D video, but manages to record it at well courtesy of 2 front-facing cameras. It should also be noted that the LifeBook AH572 comes with a 6-cell battery that should provide a tad less than 8 hours of runtime.
Although Fujitsu had previously planned a February launch for the LifeBook AH572, it appears production issues lead to a couple months delay. However, it’s always better late than never and the laptop could end up being a quality buy for budget consumers searching for a 3D capable laptop. The notebook can currently be ordered via Fujitsu’s site and is selling for $999 along with a free 500GB USB HDD or a Coby HD Camcorder.
