The MacBook Air isn’t the only slim notebook in town. Introducing the Frontier FRNL, it’s lighter, but not quite as slim as the Air. It weighs 2.75 pounds compared to the MacBook Air’s 3 pound weight. However, what the FRNL can do that the Mac can’t is survive abuse. The Frontier FRNL has a waterproof keyboard and a super tough casing that can withstand a 2.5 feet drop and 265 pounds of pressure. If you take a look at the pictures below, it seems to also have a fingerprint reader similar to the ones on Lenovo’s ThinkPads.

Specs:
* 800 MHz Intel A110 CPU
* 12.1-inch LED backlight LCD; SXGA resolution
* 1GB of RAM
* 80GB HDD
* Wi-Fi A/B/G
* Dimensions: 11.65 x 1.21 x 8.22 inches

Its specs sure leave more to be desired. 800MHz? What?

The Frontier FRNL is on sale for about half of what the MacBook Air retails for in Japan.
