The Fujitsu Esprimo Q1500 is a very interesting and very small little computer. At first I wasn’t sure whether to write about it on my netbook reviews website, as I also cover nettops or to cover the news here, due to it’s great HTPC potential and that fact that it’s much more than a standard nettop.
The Fujitsu Q1500 mini PC might looks like a typical under powered nettops, but the Q1500 is in fact a very powerful PC crammed into a very small space. The whole machine has a volume of just 1.4 liters, and according to Fujitsu is about the same width and length dimensions as a CD case.
Rather than using an Atom processor or similar, the Fujitsu Esprimo Q1500 makes use of a 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo T9600 processor, along with 4GB of RAM, a 320GB hard drive, and a nice selection of six USB 2.0 ports.
The reason the Fujitsu Esprimo Q1500 is of great interest to this site is it’s powerful specifications, along with an optional slot-loading Blu-Ray drive and HDMI output. This makes the Fujitsu Q1500 a great choice for use as a HTPC / media center, as it’s more than powerful enough to decode and playback 1080p HD to your HDTV.
The machine is also energy efficient, using only 19 watts of power in idle mode.
It should be available soon for €699 with other pricing and dates available soon.
