The system delivers 5.5 hours of battery life and it's got a 5.6" LCD screen. There's an SD slot and separate slot for CF, and there's a convenient thumbstick at the top right for cursoring around the screen. Some little features did come as a surprise, especially for the price, such as a fingerprint scanner, the integrated Bluetooth and the VGA camera, as well as an included system for monitor and Ethernet. There's just one USB port, and the U810 supports almost all wireless.
