What sets this Loox apart

What sets this Loox apart from its' almost identical counterpart (the Loox S) is most predominantly the media console jutting out from the screen. An odd place to put speakers and CD/DVD Rom controls, but a remarkable use of the space nonetheless. The screen panel is no more than about 5mm or 6mm in thickness!

Ali had hooked up the Loox so "The Fifth Element" was playing off of the internal DVD-drive. Picture quality and flicker were first rate (read: nonexistent flicker), a true testament to Crusoe's DVD capabilities one may assume.

Since sound was being pumped through a pair of good external speakers it was difficult to make any real and lasting comparisons regarding the console speakers. Previous experience with laptop speakers would tend to suggest the barest minimum of audio quality though.

Round about the back of the Loox T things are quite barren. Where typical North American laptops would have parallel ports, serial ports, a docking station and VGA connector, the Loox T simply has USB, NIC, PS/2 and audio jacks. The streamlined back is refreshing, especially if you are a legacy free kind of user.

The lack of a floppy drive may be a bit shocking, but if Apple can get away with it in their G4's then Fujitsu should be able to in their notebooks. PCMCIA and CD-ROM's are of course, not neglected.

Unfortunately it may be some time before this exceptionally stylish sub-notebook makes it into wide retail distribution in North America, assuming it in fact ever does...
