Posted on 22 February 2010 by author

This Pine Trail Atom N450-based netbook from Fujitsu was first announced at The International CES ( or Consumer Electronics Show) 2010. CES is the largest consumer technology tradeshow in the world.  This MH380 netbook weighs about 3 kilograms and has a thickness of 1.9 inches, thereby making it one of the heaviest and chunkiest of netbooks but is still attractive mainly due to its ruby red deck and lid.

In addition to its charm, the edges are modernly rounded and the inner hinge is classy chrome finished. Based on reports, this heavy chunk of a netbook may have a doubtful durability as the hinge creaks along with the bezel when raising or lowering the display.

However, the keyboard of the MH380 is regarded as the best since all of its keys (which are solid and springy)are situated where they are preferred by the typist. Another stand-out in this MH380 is its scroll wheel that accounts for ease in browsing through the web pages. It has a 1366 x 768-pixel LED display that makes for a bright and excellent viewing. The front twin speakers provide a loud and clear audio experience.
