S7020 Hero Angle s Fujitsu Refreshed LifeBook S Series Notebooks

Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific today launched three newly refreshed LifeBook S
series notebook computers. All three are ultra portable, high performance
machines, incorporating multimedia features, SuperFine or AntiGlare LCD screens,
large hard disk drives, high performance DDR2 533MHz memory, improved graphics
performance and fingerprint recognition technology. In addition, corporate and
consumer users can expect longer battery life and greater processing power with
the next-generation Intel® Centrino™ platform and Intel® PRO/Wireless 2915ABG
network connection.

The LifeBook S6240 and S7021 will debut at the PC Show 2005 while the LifeBook
S7020 will be available through Fujitsu resellers nationally from late June
2005. The S6240 and S7021 have a recommended retail price from $ 3,488 while the
S7020 has a recommended retail price of $ 5888. An interesting idea by Fujitsu is the LifeBook mobile service
van which go around schools to service Fujitsu notebooks with quick replaceable
parts such as memories, hard drives, optical drives etc. The first pilot plan of
this special service will be catered to Crescent Girls School in the coming
June.

Mr YS Ng, Vice President, Marketing said “These newly refreshed LifeBook S
series notebooks have been carefully engineered to meet the demanding standards
of our corporate and consumer users. We’ve listened and delivered increased
performance, resulting in the most powerful and portable notebooks ever.”

The increasing popularity of digital entertainment and high quality graphics for
business is catered for by the inclusion of the Integrated Intel® Graphics Media
Accelerator 900 with DVMT 3.0. This delivers low-power, high performance 2D/3D
graphics, video and display capabilities at a maximum shared memory of 128MB,
allowing users to enjoy smooth rendering of graphics and enhanced digital
realism.

The LifeBook S6240 weighs less than 1.7kg* with built-in modular bay drive and
13.3” display. A media playback panel allows for convenient media functionality.
The LifeBook S7000 series notebooks weigh less than 1.8kg* with built-in modular
bay drive and 14” display. The optional Dual Layer DVD Super Multi Writer
provides a perfect way to backup important data on a dual layer DVD media of up
to 8.5GB.

Fujitsu understands that aesthetics is an important factor when choosing a
notebook. Their new range features two colour options for the discerning
professional. The “North Black” is designed for lifestyle trendsetters who
appreciate fashionable ultra-portability in their notebooks; while its signature
silver is designed for the busy corporate mobile professionals. The “North
Black” models boast a SuperFine LCD screen providing superior clarity for rich
multimedia playback and movie viewing while the signature silver is equipped
with an AntiGlare screen, perfect for working on-the-go.

All three LifeBook S series notebooks are equipped with fingerprint recognition
technology with capacitive sensors for accurate fingerprint recognition.
Confidential files and folders can now be encrypted with your fingerprint to
prevent unauthorised data access. An additional bonus, the fingerprint sensor
can be programmed as a scroll button with vertical scroll functions!

With so many useful peripherals available today, mobile professionals need their computers to be truly flexible. The notebooks feature an impressive array of connectivity options including three conveniently placed USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1394 port, a mini S-Video port, High Definition (HD) audio in and out jacks, modem access and network connections. A combination of Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick® PRO slot in the S7021 allows data to be easily transferred to and from other devices such as PDAs and digital cameras.

All three notebooks are also equipped with PCI Express x1 Gigabit LAN support,
allowing faster networking than before and improving overall network
communication performance. In addition, the LifeBook S7000 series has a Type II
PCMCIA slot along with ExpressCard™ capability, offering higher bandwidth than
traditional PCMCIA cards. The S7020 also offers Bluetooth™ connectivity for
faster and more efficient communication.
