    Fujitsu has launched three new Santa Rosa-based notebooks for the Japanese market. First one the FMV-BIBLO NX Santa Rosa notebook features an Intel Core 2 Duo T7200, 1GB of RAM, 15.4" 1440x900 display and a Blu-ray burner, while the lower-end FMV-BIBLO NF model has a Core 2 Duo T5500 processor, 1GB of RAM, 15.4" 1280x800 display and a dual-layer DVD burner. Also announced was the 13.4" FMV-BIBLO NX. The FMV-BIBLO NX features a traditional XGA screen and can be equipped with a Core 2 Duo T7200, T5500 or Celeron M430 processor. Intel's Santa Rosa platform uses Merom-based Core 2 Duo processors and the Crestline chipset which supports 667MHz/800MHz FSB speeds. Video and graphics are handled by the GMA X3000 graphics core.

    I need to catch up on the Santa Rosa chipset. I am under the impression that with this new chipset you'll get better performance and battery life than the current mermon offering, but the biggest feature is that the GMA X3000 graphics core will handle dx10 nstead of dx9.0d or whatever it's called on Vista. Is that correct?

    I just bought an HP dv6256us laptop today and the price was really good but i'm tempted to hold off to see what this Santa Rosa chipset and GMA X3000 graphics core will do.

    :D Lol, no I don't play games on a laptop it's strictly for business. I was thinking maybe the UI might look a little different running in dx10, that's all.
