Fujitsu Siemens computers has confirmed the launch of its latest Lifebook, the ultra-slim S series, touting more power and extended battery life for the wireless worker. The new laptops should be available in the Middle East market by late May 2003.

The Lifebook S6120 notebook is based on Intel Centrino mobile technology, designed to offer a secure wireless platform over wide-area, local-area and personal-area networks.

“The new LIFEBOOK notebooks take mobile computing to highly innovative levels with a host of leading edge applications,” said Jacquie Carson, sales and marketing director, Middle East, Fujitsu Siemens Computers.

“The LIFEBOOK S-series notebooks will dramatically change the expectations consumers have of laptops, enabling them to draw more benefit, whether for professional or personal use.”

The promise of extended battery life is owed to intelligent power distribution and a new logic design. Supplying power to components only when needed reduces overall power consumption, goes the argument, whilst heating of the processor is concentrated.

“The LIFEBOOK S series notebooks fit efficiently into Fujitsu Siemens Computers’ strategy for future growth which will be driven by the twin pillars of Mobility and Business Critical Computing,” said Carson.

“Globally, the market for ultra portable laptops is growing at 17 per cent annually. We are positive these new notebooks will expand our market share in the Middle East where the demand for our industry-leading products has been growing at a rapid pace.”

The Lifebook S6120 will be available in two versions. The standard version comes without wireless options based on the Intel Pentium M processor at 1.40 GHz.

The advanced version ships with integrated Bluetooth/Wireless LAN and Intel Pentium M processor at 1.40 GHz or 1.60 GHz. The modular bay accepts a CD, DVD and Combo Drive (DVD/CD-R/RW) as well as a DVD burner (+R/RW), a second hard disk for data backup or a second battery.
