Fujitsu Siemens is the latest PC manufacturer to release a so-called ultra-portable notebook with the launch of its Lifebook S7010. In addition to its weight having being reduced, the new S7010 also includes a newly enlarged 14.1 inch display and is aimed squarely at business users who require a notebook with similar functionality to that of a full-size desktop PC. "Professional users frequently on the move or working in the field cannot compromise when selecting a new notebook," said Susanne Lewitzki, product marketing manager, Fujitsu Siemens Computers. "The new Lifebook S7010 weighs just 1.77 kg, almost 1kg lighter than the current Lifebook series with larger displays and offers extended battery life and comprehensive communications capabilities." The S7010 includes a modular bay, which allows users to remove its DVD burner and replace this with either an additional hard disk drive or a second battery to extend its battery life. The S7010 also gives high priority to security features: a security panel allows users a pre-boot security option featuring a PIN code; an integrated SmartCard controller is included; and a trusted platform module (TPM) to identify the notebook through a network is also added as an optional extra. The S7010 is built around Intel’s Centrino technology, making it ready to instantly and wirelessly access the internet at any of Intel’s regional hot spots. Bluetooth support is also included for wirelessly hooking up to devices such as printers and PDAs. Fujitsu Siemens’ new Lifebook S7010 will be reviewed in the June issue of Windows Middle East (on sale in May).
