Mr Raymond Foo, Associate Director, Marketing said “The DESKPOWER TX is the

apart from the rest. The home digital entertainment experience has just been
upgraded to the next level, and today, Fujitsu marks a new standard in total
digital convergence. It’s time to redefine your expectations!”

Think big, think 32-inch. The DESKPOWER TX sports a massive 32-inch Wide
Screen LCD screen, offering the big screen experience that is so essential for
today’s digital lifestyle. With features including a 500cd/m2 superbright
display and a contrast ratio of 800:1, it displays true-to-life images for an
ultimate digital home entertainment experience. Treat your family members to a
movie marathon or invite your best buddies over for an exciting soccer match.
The DESKPOWER TX’s 170-degree wide viewing angle ensures perfect clarity
regardless of viewing position. Its tilt-able LCD panel is designed to
accommodate different rack heights, allowing home users to adjust and tilt the
screen according to their viewing preferences.

No home entertainment system is complete without a suitably powerful sound
system. Ear soothing theatre style sound is what you can expect, enabled by a
high range dedicated soft dome tweeter and integrated sub-woofer with enhanced
bass support. Now you can transform your living room into a live theatre.

The home entertainment features do not stop there, as the dual television tuners
enables you to record up to two televised programs simultaneously; or watch one
while recording the other, enhancing personal productivity and movie viewing
flexibility. Commanding multimedia applications become a breeze with the
seamless technology of Windows® XP Media Centre Edition 2005.

With an enormous 600GB of storage space that gives you the capacity to store up
to 450 hours of television and movie recording, you can record and view your
favourite programs at your own leisure. The integrated Dual Layer Super Multi
Writer supports a wide range of DVD media and acting as a backup storage of up
to 8.5GB of data. View your favourite home videos or display your treasured
family photos in a slideshow, thanks to the integrated multimedia card readers
such as the SD/MS PRO and xD card slots. The DESKPOWER TX is further enhanced by
the inclusion of the Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 630 with Hyper-Threading
Technology, providing ample power to enable both digital media nirvana and
enhanced PC capabilities.

Command and conquer the competition; switch between video console and PC gaming.
Serious gamers or occasional samples are treated to absolute gaming enjoyment
with the DESKPOWER TX’s unique hybrid PC/TV capability and bundled Gaming
Plug-in software. Multimedia functions are also conveniently and flexibly
controlled by a single remote control unit. A user-friendly multimedia wireless
keyboard and mouse can be used within a range of 10-meter, adding flexibility
and convenience for the modern home user. The keyboard is programmable with
one-touch buttons that enable quick and convenient access to your favourite
software, while the inclusion of new anti-bacteria protection prolongs its
lifespan and helps to create a safe and bacteria-free home environment. These
three control systems grant an ultimate digital entertainment experience at
will, effortlessly from productivity to interactive entertainment and back as
required.

The fact that the DESKPOWER TX is ‘Made in Japan’ to stringent Japanese criteria

reliability. This total home entertainment PC is the first to be bundled with
the Fujitsu Hardware Diagnostic Tool powered by PC-Doctor – an application that
