Fujitsu today announced the LifeBook P7230 notebook, an ultra-portable that elegantly blends mobility with complete functionality for mobile professionals who need full computing power while on the road. Weighing under three pounds, the LifeBook P7230 notebook, available in chic Leather Black or trendy Leather White, features an even slimmer 1.17-inch silhouette with a 10.6-inch LED lit widescreen display.
The LifeBook P7230 notebook, 15 percent thinner than its predecessor, is the industry's smallest and lightest ultra-portable notebook with a built-in modular bay that can accommodate a Dual-Layer Multi-Format DVD Writer or a second battery delivering up to 9.75 hours1 of computing time for extra long workdays. Battery life is also extended with the Fujitsu ECO button, a proprietary power-saving mode that with a single press reduces power consumption for components, including disabling the optical disk drive and reducing the display brightness.
Equipped with the powerful yet energy-efficient Intel Core Solo U1400 Ultra Low Voltage Processor and fully loaded with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, Windows Vista Business or Windows XP Professional, the reliable LifeBook P7230 notebook delivers exactly what professionals on-the-go require.
With an LED-lit Crystal View XGA TFT wide format display, the LifeBook P7230 notebook presents an incredibly crisp view of presentations, DVDs, and other digital media. Digital dual array built-in microphones and dual built-in stereo speakers, along with a new optional built-in web-cam for taking still pictures or capturing video, add a novel dimension to the LifeBook P7230 notebook. The optional built-in camera, centered above the display, is ideal for visually demonstrating a complicated procedure over the web or illustrating items to clarify key points.
The LifeBook P7230 notebook offers a variety of safeguards to prevent unauthorized data access, including an integrated biometric fingerprint swipe sensor and an embedded Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that can store data file passwords and keys on a microchip. With a security lock slot, physical assets are kept safe as well.
Data is also protected by the Fujitsu Shock Sensor utility, an accelerometer-based hard disk drive protection system that retracts the hard drive head if a sudden movement or vibration is detected, reducing the possibility of data loss. The sensor can also be set to password-lock the system if it is touched, preventing unauthorized access to the data.
Staying connected while mobile is easy with a seamlessly integrated Intel PRO/Wireless 3945b/g Network Connection or Atheros Super AG Wireless LAN, modem, Gigabit Ethernet, and Bluetooth wireless option. The LifeBook P7230 notebook offers two conveniently placed USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1394 port, full-sized video port, modem, LAN and audio in and out jacks. Accessing photo or video files is easy via a combination of Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick PRO and xD card slots. An available port replicator provides desktop convenience and simplified cable management.
Fujitsu makes every effort to promote environmental conservation and protection. The LifeBook P7230 notebook is RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances) compliant, which translates to a health-friendly environment.
