Fujitsu PC: Ultra-chic and super-slim, LifeBook Q series redefines the concept of true executive style

  • 06 July, 2006 16:59

<p>Step into a world of exclusivity and sophistication with the LifeBook Q2010. Boasting a waif-like profile and weighing barely a kilogram, this quintessential companion for the discerning professional is the first in the world to have an integrated digital array microphone technology to enable true mobile computing.</p>
<p>Australia, 6th July, 2006 – Fujitsu PC Australia today unveils the most breathtakingly beautiful, incredibly slim and remarkably light ultra-portable ever to be released: the LifeBook Q2010.</p>
<p>The true leader of the new ultra-slim lifestyle, the new LifeBook Q series is truly setting the pace that others can only envy. By incorporating advanced technologies, and sophisticated materials such as a sleek magnesium housing and titanium hinges, the LifeBook Q2010 balances sturdiness and lightness perfectly, while giving this high-profile, heading-turning computing powerhouse a stunningly thin profile of only 19.9 millimeters – the same as the ball-point pen in your pocket. The leadership status is further sealed with the addition of the advanced digital array microphone, a breakthrough in mobile computing innovation.</p>
<p>Mr Adrian Mead, Manager Australasia Operations said “Our inspiration in creating the LifeBook Q2010 came from the desire to infuse total sophistication and power into the daily life of today’s modern and busy executive. We know that you demand pure performance from technology that adds to your productivity and fashion sense rather than detracting from it. Therefore, the LifeBook Q2010 was designed to make you look as good as you really are.”</p>
<p>Designed as the hallmark of success for executives who are constantly on the move, be it in meetings across the office, across town or across the globe, the LifeBook Q2010 is totally in sync with you and your needs. Although it effortlessly fits in your bag, it has such an appealing new design that we doubt you would want to hide it.</p>
<p>Blow your business partners or fellow travellers away with its plush design, complete with high grade finishes. Bring out the nifty LifeBook Q2010 and you will draw admiring glances, and be the centre of attention cruising above ground in your snug leather seat.</p>
<p>With such a cool and sophisticated exterior, it should come as no surprise that the interior is just as extravagantly designed. Just one look at the smooth plane of the palm rest and the flush touch pad, and you’ll see that aesthetic ranks high on our designer’s list of priorities, with an incredible dedication to every detail. Even the hinges are made of solid titanium, adding a premium touch while lending an extra durability to the parts that need reinforcement.</p>
<p>When it comes to weight, the concern of the frequent traveler, few notebooks with a 12.1-inch widescreen weigh only one kilogram approximately. Even more remarkable is the ultra-long battery life. The LifeBook Q2010 surpasses all expectations by having an extended 7-hour battery life when a 6-cell battery is added, not only letting you work and play with total confidence, but also making you more mobile than ever before. No more worries when you are on long-haul business flights, or when you forget to bring an extra battery to an important meeting.</p>
<p>To truly enable anytime and anywhere computing, the LifeBook Q2010 is equipped with a full suite of wireless connectivity options, giving a whole new meaning to the term mobile computing. The Bluetooth module has been upgraded to the latest Bluetooth v2.0+EDR standard to accelerate connection to other Bluetooth peripherals. Such wireless connectivity features ensure that communication with your business partners, colleagues or loved ones is a breeze.</p>
<p>Being the first, and currently the only notebook in the world to have an integrated dual digital array microphone, high-flying professionals can now perform even better with the ultimate in digital communication while on the road. Compared to an analogue microphone, a digital microphone system is immune to noise and interferences, resulting in superior voice reception. Add to this Fujitsu’s bundled software which includes noise suppression and echo cancellation, VoIP function has just been taken to a whole new plane.</p>
<p>You can now make Internet phone calls with VoIP software easily in the comfort of your hotel room, on the way to a business function, or on your well-deserved break. Your friends, family and colleagues will never be too far away.</p>
<p>In addition, a comprehensive docking station offers a full suite of ports for easy docking and undocking of peripherals, and a built-in DVD Super Multi Writer. Other standard appointments include PC Card (Type ll) and SD card slots, two USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1394 port and an infrared port.</p>
<p>And as always, the full suite of Fujitsu’s standard security features are built-in for total computing confidence, including the indispensable fingerprint recognition technology – a fingerprint password protection that lets you unlock your LifeBook Q2010 with an effortless swipe of your finger.</p>
<p>Ms Brooke Costello, Marketing Communications Manager said “Fujitsu’s ingenious fusion of innovation and aesthetics has created a distinct market for astute executives who are unwilling to compromise elegance for efficiency. Gone are the days when you have to make a distinction between a sleek machine and a powerful one, because the exclusive LifeBook Q2010 simply gives you the best of both worlds!”</p>
