Fujitsu today debuted four LifeBook notebooks powered by next-generation Intel Centrino Pro processor technology designed to improve the overall mobile computing experience. The LifeBook E8410 notebook, the flagship of the Fujitsu corporate desktop replacement portfolio, is among the first systems equipped with Intel Centrino Pro processor technology, which offers enhanced security, system and wireless manageability for reduced total cost of ownership.
The LifeBook T4220 convertible Tablet PC, the LifeBook E8310 corporate notebook and the LifeBook A6030 mainstream notebook will also sport the new Intel Centrino Pro processor technology. All four LifeBook notebooks, available in Q2 2007, benefit from improvements in performance, graphics, wireless connectivity, and battery life.
"Mobile products are now outshipping desktops as the preferred computing device for the enterprise," said Paul Moore, senior director of mobile product marketing, Fujitsu Computer Systems. "Intel Centrino Pro processor technology has helped advance this trend by delivering dual core performance, plus reduced thermals that promote smaller lighter units, longer battery life, better wireless performance, and an overall excellent mobile experience for the mobile user. This -- combined with the unique and diverse lineup of Fujitsu LifeBook notebooks -- is a real boost to increasing productivity and entertainment for both mobile professionals and consumers."
"Fujitsu has always placed a premium on delivering reliable, high-performance uniquely mobile notebooks," said Erik Reid, marketing director, Intel Mobile Platforms Group. "Intel Centrino Pro processor technology provides improvements that will enable Fujitsu to better deliver on that goal and help to drive continued growth in the mobile computing market."
All four Fujitsu LifeBook notebooks get a performance boost and extended battery life from the new Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and offer either the Intel GM965 Express Chipset or the Intel PM965 Express Chipset. The LifeBook T4220, LifeBook E8410, and A6030 notebooks also offer the Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N, providing up to five times the performance compared to 802.11g and twice the wireless range.

Renowned for its reliability, top-notch performance and ironclad security, the 6.1-pound LifeBook E8410 corporate powerhouse notebook with a 15.4-inch widescreen display, is one of the lightest in its class. Equipped with Intel Centrino Pro processor technology, the LifeBook E8410 notebook offers Intel(R) Active Management Technology, which provides proactive security features that enforce system compliance and block more threats, along with new wireless management capabilities that remotely diagnose, repair, and protect notebooks. A powerful NVIDIA graphics processor, available as an option, delivers the ability to build and display compelling visual communications with rich multimedia.
The LifeBook E8410 notebook features a new housing, yet maintains its durable and lightweight design featuring magnesium-alloy casing, spill-resistant keyboard, stainless-steel hinges, and the Fujitsu Shock Sensor hard drive protection system. A new optional built-in camera, centered above the display, is ideal for video calls or capturing video or still images.

The industry's lightest convertible Tablet PC with a modular bay is packed with a full complement of security features and the Fujitsu Shock Sensor hard drive protection system. It offers the market's first bi-directional display hinge, which turns the screen in both directions for added convenience.
"Over 500 caregivers rely on the Fujitsu LifeBook T Series Tablet PC to record, share, and access patient information from anywhere on our distributed campus," said Tanya Townsend, IT director at Saint Clare's Hospital, Weston, WI.
