Fujitsu Lifebook B142

YEAR: 1999



The Fujitsu Lifebook B142 is an ultralight computer that was oriented to compete with Sony`s ultra-books and Toshiba Libretto`s computers. It is a very well build machine and also it has a TFT touchscreen display witch makes this little computer the perfect business machine for people who are on the go.  It is equipped with an Intel Celeron as at that time chips were more power hungry so basically you needed to sacrifice a little performance to get a small size computer.
