    Thing is... the BOE SXGA should be a drop in replacement for the XGA. You could replace the XGA with SXGA units on the assembly line and the workers wouldn't know the difference. It would require NO investment from Fujitsu to use them, other then ordering some SXGA units instead of XGA units. Mabye it's such a minor thing to them, it's not included on their roadmap...yeah.

    This was one of the reasons why it took such a long time in someone taking their fingers out of their ears.
    I commented about BOE LCD and asked for the definitive answer.
    I didn't want a half-hearted responce, nor one that was covered in maybe's and possibilities.

    I still feel though that someone is keeping something tight to their chest.....

    Just to add to the pile of possible SXGA option indicators:

    From the Fujitsu spec page for the 4210: (bold added)

    "Bridge battery for warm swapping of primary battery XGA model: up to 6.5 hours6 with main battery; up to 11 hours6 using both main and modular bay battery"

    To ask the obvious: Why would they specify that the battery life estimates are for the XGA model if there will only ever be an XGA model?

    Rob,
    Can you point me to the spec sheet you mention please...

    The spec sheet I have doesn't mention the information as you report it to read.

    Thanks Rob,
    I'm going to get back to FSC UK and ask them to clarify this.
    No doubt they will say something along the lines "what FSC US say or write is not of our control ...blah...blah...blah", which may well be correct.

    Regardless, someone has typed it; where did they receive such information.

    That's my thinking as well. I checked a few of the other products on different FSC sites to see if it was just a standard precautionary inclusion, or perhaps just an accident resulting from hasty webpage creation (i.e. cut&pasted from an existing product with resolution options)... but I found nothing like that.

    I'm sure I'm just jumping to a hopeful conclusion here... but I don't see why they would have said that had they not planned on releasing an alternate resolution option. I'm new to laptops (but not to computers in general); would a higher resolution result in noticably lower battery life? I mean, would the Intel GMA 950 really suck that much more energy driving a slightly higher resolution? Or would the added resolution mean a higher power comsumption from the digitizer? (I know nothing of how the Wacom panels work... are they sold by screen size only, resolution, etc.?)
