Fujitsu rejuvenates its Esprimo and Lifebook lines
Company adds three models to Esprimo line, nine to Lifebook series
Fujitsu has added three new models to its Esprimo PC line and nine new models to its Lifebook notebook line.
Cost and time saving have been the core values in the design, manufacture and application of the devices, according to Fujitsu.
The new models use Intel's second-generation Core processor technology with new 32nm Intel microarchitecture and improved energy-efficient performance.
"The new PC and notebook models from Fujitsu are more energy-efficient and more powerful than ever - and the desktop PCs run so silently that you'd hardly notice they are there. With the new family concept for both Esprimo desktop PCs and Lifebook notebooks, we are helping organisations 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," said Chandan Mehta, product manager at Fujitsu Technology Solutions.
The new Esprimo PCs and Lifebook notebooks are the first to feature Fujitsu's new ‘true family' concept.
The True Family concept means that the components in the Fujitsu systems, such as the motherboard, BIOS, front connector board, power supply and software images are identical. This means that a company can test one PC from the whole range and if it is compatible with their business needs, the rest will be too.
The new generation Esprimo PCs eliminate power consumption in off mode, and are intended to be totally silent when running in idle and 'normal office' modes.
The third new Esprimo is the Q900 model; this PC has two USB 3.0 interfaces, enabling transfer rates that are 12 times faster than USB 2.0, according to Fujitsu. The Esprimo Q900 is the most energy efficient model in the PC range.
In the Lifebook series, the new Lifebook P701 slots neatly into the mid-range screen size. With a 12-inch display, it fills the gap between the 14-inch Lifebook S751 and the 10.1-inch Lifebook T580.
There are several new design features in the new models 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, helping to prevent the spread of germs. Another new feature is the anytime USB Charge mode, designed to allow Lifebook users to charge portable devices such as mobile phones, even when switched off.
There are also a total of nine new models in the Lifebook family, these include the Lifebook T901, a 13.3-inch tablet PC, the Lifebook P771, a 12.1-inch 1.4 kg notebook, the Lifebook S761, a 13.3-inch ultraportable notebook and the Lifebook E751, a 15.6-inch desktop replacement.
The new range also features the Lifebook S751, a high-performance 14-inch portable, the Lifebook P701, a lightweight 1.5 kg with a 12.1-inch display, the Lifebook NH751, a 17.3-inch multimedia notebook with Blu-ray Disc drive and discrete graphics card, the Lifebook AH531 and A531, 15.6-inch notebooks and the Lifebook LH531, a 14-inch all-rounder.
The new Esprimo and Lifebook models will arrive on the shores of the EMEA region in March 2011.
