Fujitsu LIFEBOOK SH761

dscf0007 Fujitsu announces new Sandy Bridge notebooks for Spring 2011

Hailed as Fujitsu's technology flagship notebook model, the SH761 sits squarely in the premium range of Fujitsu's lifestyle offerings and is aimed that mobile professionals, tech enthusiasts and business users who desire a high-performance notebook complete with the latest gimmicks, while taking into consideration the total cost of ownership for such a system. 

The SH761 sports a 13.3-inch display and is powered by Intel's Core i7-2620M proccessor, which is clocked at 2.7GHz (3.4GHz on Turbo Boost), and comes with 4GB of memory for multitasking purposes. The notebook also features a modular optical disk bay which can be removed to further reduce the notebook's weight, or replaced with an additional hard disk (or batteries) for a larger storage capacity. A dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GT520M graphics card featuring 1GB of VRAM provides the SH761's graphical solutions, while expansion ports consists of three USB ports (2x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0), one VGA-out, a HDMI-out port, standard Ethernet and modem ports and a Port Replicator. Last but not least, the SH761 will also come bundled with Fujitsu's new zero-watt adaptor mentioned earlier.

The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK SH761 will be available from April at the retail price of S$3,488.


Fujitsu LIFEBOOK SH561

To label the LIFEBOOK SH561 as the 'lesser' counterpart of the SH761 shown previously will be a rather good hint about the type of consumers Fujitsu is targeting with its new SH561 notebook, and it shows if one takes a look at the differences in their specifications lists.

Unlike the SH761, the SH561 utilizes a slightly weaker Core i5-2410M processor which is clocked at 2.3GHz (2.9GHz under Turbo Boost), and offers Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows 7 Professional. Battery capacity has also been reduced, with the SH561 offering only a 5800mAH battery pack as opposed to the SH761's 6200mAH. Lastly, the SH561 also loses the USB 3.0 port: instead, users will get an additional USB 2.0 port which features Fujitsu's Anytime Charge technology.

Other than the aforementioned differences, the SH561 is essentially identical to the SH761 in other areas: it makes use of the same GeForce GT520M graphics card, the same modular optical drive bay and comes bundled with the same zero-watt AC adaptor found in its more powerful counterpart.

The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK SH561 pricing has not been released yet, but Fujitsu has confirmed that the notebook will be available for sale from April onwards.
