Fujitsu Announces New "Floral Kiss" Brand of FMV Personal Computers for Women

Series developed by a team of female engineers in aiming to bring elegance to PCs

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, October 19, 2012

Fujitsu today announced the launch of the new Floral Kiss brand of FMV personal computers aimed at female users. The new series will be available throughout Japan beginning November 2 at electronics stores and from the Fujitsu WEB MART online store.

Based upon the design concept of bringing elegance to PCs, Floral Kiss is a new series that was planned and developed primarily under the direction of female employees.

As the first PC to be released under the Floral Kiss brand, Fujitsu will be offering an Ultrabook™ developed in an all-out pursuit of elegance, from the size and design of the model to its accessories, mouse, AC adaptor and other peripheral devices, and even to the applications. Featuring the latest Windows 8 OS, a high-performance 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, and 500GB of hard disk space, the new notebook PC's specs are sure to make for a user-friendly experience. It also provides access to My Cloud, Fujitsu's proprietary personal cloud service that will be available as a full-scale service from today.

The new series also includes a model designed in collaboration with the jewelry brand "agete." That model is scheduled to be exhibited at a number of agete's shops.

In recent years, with women accounting for nearly half of PC purchases, the Floral Kiss project was born from the desire of Fujitsu's female employees to create a PC that women would find appealing. The new series, developed under the concept of bringing elegance to all aspects of PC design—from hardware to applications—was created with this aim in mind.

1. Elegant design down to the details

The Floral Kiss series features a unified design sensibility that has been developed for the female consumer—from the PC's design to accessories, such as the mouse and case, and optional add-ons. Users can select their favorite color from among three variations: Elegant White, Feminine Pink and Luxury Brown.

The power button is adorned with a pearl-like accent, and the power status LED and Caps Lock key are decorated with diamond-cut stone for a sophisticated look. An exquisite gold ring frames each key on the transparent keyboard, highlighting its elegant style. In addition, the outtake and intake vents all feature a floral motif design.

The included AC adaptor and wireless mouse are compact and fit easily into the hands of all users. At the same time, zirconia adornments and other details that give them a stylish appeal.
