Fujitsu launches new models
Dubai, January 9, 2011
Fujitsu has announced the launch of three new Esprimo PC models and nine new Lifebook notebook models.
With the new generation, Fujitsu has rethought desktop and mobile computing design and focused on ways to provide cost and time savings throughout the entire product lifecycle, the company said.
The new models immediately incorporate Intel’s second-generation Core processor technology with new 32nm Intel microarchitecture and an impressive leap in energy-efficient performance, announced recently..
The new Esprimo PCs and Lifebook notebooks are the first to feature Fujitsu’s new “true family” concept, providing significant cost savings on maintenance, testing and evaluation. Typically, companies must evaluate every PC and notebook model to make sure the hardware and software is compatible with their business. The “true family” concept stands for the use of identical main components in Fujitsu systems, including motherboard, BIOS, front connector board, power supply and software images, the statement said.
For customers, this means they need only test one model to confirm that the entire product line is compatible with their environment. The first Fujitsu PC product lines to offer this concept are the new Esprimo P900 and Esprimo E900 series, while the Lifebook E751 and Lifebook S751 also share core notebook components.
The “true family” concept is a further enhancement and a consequent expansion of Fujitsu’s existing family philosophy which already makes sure that notebook modules such as the modular bay for DVD drives, the second hard disk drive, second battery and port replicator are interchangeable between Lifebook E751 and Lifebook S751. These components are compatible with the 2010 generation models, too.
Having already eliminated power consumption in off mode in its 0-Watt PCs, Fujitsu has removed another environmental burden from the 0-Watt models in the Esprimo line-up: that of noise. The new 0-Watt Esprimo E900 and Esprimo P900 “Zero Noise” models offer totally silent running in idle and “normal office” modes. Their whisper quiet operation means that the new Esprimo PCs are office-friendly co-workers that fit into any team.
The third new Esprimo is the Q900 model, which features two USB 3.0 interfaces, enabling transfer rates that are 12 times faster than USB 2.0.
New Lifebook line-up
With the new line-up of Lifebook notebooks, Fujitsu unveils new models that round-out the portfolio to meet a wider range of customer needs. For example, the new Lifebook P701 offers a 12-inch display that fills the gap between the 14-inch Lifebook S751 and the 10.1-inch Lifebook T580.
The new Lifebook line introduces several small design features that add value, such as the 0-Watt AC adapter that draws no power at all when the notebook is in off mode, and the anti-bacterial keyboard, which helps prevent the spread of germs between notebook users. Another new feature is the anytime USB Charge mode, included in most models, which allows Lifebook to charge portable devices such as mobile phones, even when switched off.
Chandan Mehta, Product Manager at Fujitsu Technology Solutions says: “The new PC and notebook models from Fujitsu are more energy-efficient and more powerful than ever. With the new family concept for both Esprimo desktop PCs and Lifebook notebooks, we are helping organizations to fast-track the introduction of updated models to their fleet of notebooks and PCs, by concentrating on the same core components right across entire model ranges.” – TradeArabia News Service
