The Notebook You Can Scribble On... - Now with Increased Video RAM for Smoother Video Playback

Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific Ltd

Hong Kong, November 19, 2001

Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific, pioneer of the touch screen notebook ups the ante with its new B series. The ultra-portable touch screen dynamo has been souped up with the latest Ultra Low Voltage Mobile Intel®Pentium®III 700MHz Processor-M with 512KB secondary cache, supporting Speedstep™technology. The LifeBook B-2562 now also has double the video RAM, to ensure richer multimedia performance.

More Power

Known to road warriors as a small electronic foolscap pad, the LifeBook B-2562 packs a powerful 256MB SDRAM, 20GB hard disk and a high-resolution 10.4 inch XGA TFT LCD display endowed with touch screen capability. Fujitsu was the first, and is still one of the few PC manufacturers to launch a touch screen notebook with a 360-degree rotational feature.

More Connectivity

The LifeBook B-2562 includes many features designed for convenience and mobility. It includes a built-in 56kbps modem and LAN to connect easily to the Internet. For cable-free communications, the LifeBook B-2562 supports BluetoothTM(PC Card option), a wireless technology that enables communications for up to 50 metres** without line-of-sight.

Enhanced User Experience

The touch screen LCD display has long been a major feature of the LifeBook B series. "Many executives find the touch screen very useful, especially with the 360-degree rotational function when doing presentations or discussions with a small team. The screen can be rotated to the left, right or 180-degrees. This allows everyone seated around to view the screen comfortably," said Ms Evelyn Ang, Product Marketing Manager.
Another considerate touch from Fujitsu is its snap-on port replicator. Shaped like a wedge, the port replicator tilts the notebook into a comfortable position for typing. Users can enjoy full peripheral support like an external monitor, printing services, scanning, a full-sized keyboard and mouse whilst working in the office. When it is time for meetings, users simply disengage the notebook with minimal fuss.


A special security feature designed by Fujitsu protects your data stored in the LifeBook B-2562. An array of five buttons called the Security Panel present a number lock with more than 800,000 possible combinations. These buttons can also be programmed for hassle-free launch onto the Internet, email applications of other user-preferred applications.

Safer Battery Swaps

Fujitsu employs a battery bridging technology to insure against loss of data during battery swaps. The LifeBook B-2562 has a battery life of up to two and a half* on the first battery and over five hours* with the extended battery pack.
