Fujitsu intros LifeBook S2000 notebook

Since its introduction, the LifeBook S Series has earned many accolades for its elegant and innovative design.

“The ‘thin & light’ market remains the largest segment in the notebook PC market,” said Matt Sargent, director of research, Personal Computers, ARS. “And this segment is finding a new growthpotential in the small business and home market as these users become more interested in notebooks that can offer increased mobility and connectivity. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly importantfor manufacturers to offer a broad range of choices to satisfy this growing demand.”

The LifeBook 2000 notebook, with AMD’s new mobile technology,brings unprecedented value to the “thin & light” category. The notebook starts at $1,199¹ and can be configured with a DVD/CD-RW drive for under $1,380¹.
