Fujitsu Updates LifeBook With New Pentium M

From Fujitsu’s press release:

Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today unveiled its latest thin-and-light LifeBook S7000 notebook, featuring the next-generation Intel Pentium M Processor – a key component of Intel Centrino mobile technology. The new chip features a faster clock speed, design enhancements and more on-die cache memory for better performance.

“The award-winning LifeBook S Series notebook has become a flagship product for Fujitsu because of its innovative and elegant design,” said Paul Moore, director of product marketing for Fujitsu Computer Systems. “It seems only fitting to equip one of the most innovative notebooks on the market with the latest mobile technology.”

Available on May 28, the new LifeBook S7000 notebook features the Intel Pentium M Processor 735, which operates at 1.70 GHz and has a 2-MB L2 cache and a 400-MHz front side bus. Code-named Dothan, the new Intel Pentium M Processor is the second-generation mobile processor from Intel and a key component in Intel Centrino mobile technology. The notebook also incorporates the Intel 855GME chipset for enhanced graphics and improved memory performance.

For maximum flexibility, Fujitsu offers a variety of wireless options, including the updated Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection (802.11b/g), an Atheros wireless solution (802.11a+b/g), and Bluetooth wireless technology.

“Because of its outstanding performance, exceptional wireless capabilities and extraordinary versatility, the Fujitsu LifeBook S7000 notebook is the ideal corporate notebook,” said Moore.

The thin-and-light notebook weighs a mere 4.3 pounds and measures 1.29 inches thick, but mobile professionals will certainly appreciate its full-size features, including a spacious 14.1-inch display, comfortable keyboard and modular bay.

The modular bay can accommodate a variety of optical drives, a bay battery or a weight saver. For multimedia functionality, users can slide in a DVD Super Multi drive, DVD/CD-RW drive or CD-ROM drive. A new option for the LifeBook S Series, the DVD Super Multi drive enables users to save and share music, videos, photos and data onto virtually any DVD or CD format.

The notebook’s security features include a pre-boot security panel and built-in Smart Card reader. For added security, users can use the embedded Trusted Platform Module (TPM). TPM consists of a discrete silicon chip and software interface that enables users to run applications, perform online transactions and communicate in a secure environment.

Pricing for the Fujitsu LifeBook S7000 notebook starts at $1599.
