  • 28 May, 2007 10:54

<p>The next generation of powerful portable LifeBook models from Fujitsu PC is here, harnessing the pure power of the latest performance upgrades and advanced new features for total computing confidence where and when you need it.</p>
<p>Sydney, Australia, May 23, 2007 – Fujitsu PC Australia today releases major upgrades to two new corporate notebooks, the LifeBook E8410 and A6030. Boasting powerful hardware upgrades, a range of corporate friendly features and full Windows Vista™ compatibility, these new models offer the next generation levels of performance and security today’s professionals need for peak performance in any situation.</p>
<p>David Niu, Product Manager for Fujitsu PC Australia said “As technology advances, so does Fujitsu PC, incorporating the latest developments, upgrades and power efficient technologies into our models, delivering better performance and better value for our valued customers who constantly demand the very best from Fujitsu PC. We are proud to deliver these new models and are confident they will meet the needs and desires of our very discerning customers!”</p>
<p>Designed with the demanding requirements of our users in mind, the new LifeBook notebooks are built upon the advancements of the models they replace, while incorporating the latest features to add the power and value that our customers need to perform at – and beyond – their expectations.</p>
<p>LifeBook E8410 – Top-of-the-line, top in performance</p>
<p>The first new model in the range is the LifeBook E8410, which replaces the E8210, representing Fujitsu PC’s flagship business model, offering the “top of the line” features and is most decidedly “top in performance”. For the discerning business user or consumer demanding the best-in-class performance, the E8410 is a superb desktop alternative offering supreme performance, superior security and truly comprehensive communications capabilities.</p>
<p>Features include the next generation Intel® Centrino® Pro processor technology featuring the 64-bit Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor, NVIDIA external graphics, a 15.4-inch SuperFine Wide XGA TFT screen, a maximum of 4GB memory and a 120GB hard drive.</p>
<p>Intel® Centrino® Pro processor technology represents the helm of mobile computing performance. This powerful platform consists of Intel® 965PM Express Chipset with Intel® Turbo Memory, Intel® PRO/Wireless 4965AGN/4965AG wireless connection, Intel® 82566MM Gigabit Network Connection with Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) and Intel Virtualization Technology (VT) support. All these translate to greater efficiency and productivity, enabling IT professionals to easily identify and recover problem network areas and protect network computing assets. Intel AMT stores hardware and software information in non-volatile memory. This built-in manageability feature provides out-of-band management convenience, allowing IT professionals to remotely recover systems after OS failures. Its System Defense capability also protects your network from threats at the source by proactively blocking incoming threats.</p>
<p>Security features are at its usual best with the biometric fingerprint sensor, a 2-password hard disk lock, a 3D shock sensor for enhanced hard disk protection, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) support, a BIOS password and a LifeBook Lock amongst other features including full RoHS compliance and naturally, complete Windows Vista™ support.</p>
<p>Communications capabilities are well looked after thanks to an internal 1.3 megapixel built-in camera and dual built-in stereo microphones. “Anytime, anywhere communication” is now all the more easier - start up an online video-conference with your business associates while in transit at the airport or get connected “in person” with your family while on long-haul travel assignments. The three built-in wireless antenna with 802.11n support also assure a most seamless virtual meeting and conversation. Enjoy this enhanced convenience of being connected wherever you are, in style.</p>
<p>Additional expansion and connectivity are provided through the built-in PC Card and ExpressCard™ slots, 1000/100/10Mbps (Gigabit) LAN, 4x USB 2.0 ports, 56kbps modem, IEEE-1394, S-video, an SD/MS/MS PRO memory card slot and even serial and parallel ports for legacy peripheral support, making the LifeBook E8410 a top of the line, performance powerhouse.</p>
<p>LifeBook A6030 – Full-featured performer</p>
<p>The successor to the popular LifeBook A6020, the new LifeBook A6030 is the value-priced yet feature-rich LifeBook which prudent consumers and corporate customers have been demanding.</p>
<p>Like the LifeBook E8410, the A6030 is also equipped with the next generation processor technology from Intel® along with an Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor with a faster 800MHz front side bus (FSB), the mobile 965GM express chipset and the latest 802.11n wireless support.</p>
<p>A richly powerful graphics capability is assured thanks to the new Intel® GMA X3100 video graphics, delivering exceptional improvements in performance over the previous GMA 950 video graphics. The GMA X3100’s video is faithfully and wonderfully reproduced on the LifeBook A6030’s brilliant 15.4-inch Wide XGA TFT screen, ideal for all your work requirements while also doubling as a delightful screen on which to view the latest DVD movies or online videos.</p>
<p>One very thoughtful feature is a spill-resistant keyboard to protect against life’s little accidents, ensuring the motherboard within is protected from damage by an accidental spill. Couple this with the Fujitsu 3D Shock Sensor which uses an advanced 3D accelerometer to protect against damage to the hard disk from vibrations and shocks, and you have a notebook computer that can handle the everyday rough and tumble of life with ease.</p>
<p>Hard disk drive performance has also been increased with a faster and more efficient SATA interface technology, while the touchpad now serves as a digitizer as well, allowing you to scribble characters, using the stylus pen and the touchpad as a mini-tablet style surface; and the inbox application in Windows Vista™ Home Premium will convert it to text for you. Alternatively, you can move, click or drag using the digitizer, further enhancing the capabilities of what was once a navigation only input system.</p>
<p>A ”7-button Easy-access Panel” gives users ultra quick and easy access to the Internet, Email and 3 most commonly used applications while also including volume control buttons. Other connectivity features include Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN, a 1000/100/10Mbps (Gigabit) Ethernet port, a 56kbps modem, an ExpressCard™ slot for expandability and a plethora of ports including 5x USB ports, VGA-out, S-Video out, IEEE 1394 and a memory card slot that handles SD, MS, MS PRO and xD cards – and more.</p>
<p>For the value-conscious, the LifeBook A6030 is the most fully featured and affordable notebook from Fujitsu PC yet!</p>
