Ultra-portable Hot Favorite - Now Larger Screen and Lighter

New IEEE 1394 Connectivity

Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific Ltd

Hong Kong, November 19, 2001

Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific has enhanced the corporate favorite LifeBook S series with a larger LCD display, FireWire connectivity, enhanced audio support yet still managing to make it lighter! The S series meets the needs of performance-conscious mobile users who want all-round capability for work and play. Battery performance has also been lengthened up to 7.9 hours*.


Larger Viewing Area, Same Form Factor

The LCD screen has been extended to the rim. At 13.3 inches, the high-resolution XGA display affords more comfortable viewing and blazes the way for more professional corporate presentations. Amazingly, the notebook becomes even lighter now. A svelte 1.7 kg, the S series is now available in an edgier silver finish, complete with a matching port replicator.

Faster Data Transfer

This new season's LifeBook S series boasts IEEE 1394 'FireWire' connectivity, letting the user whip footage from videocam to laptop at high speeds of up to 400Mbps. Be it for leisure or work purposes, the new S series does not disappoint, giving great on-the-road performance with its booster shot of doubled video RAM.


The Security Panel located just above the keyboard comes with a mind-boggling 800,000-combination password capability. Four of the same buttons are also programmable by the user for instant Internet connection and email applications, as well as other user-preferred applications.

Multi-tasking Capability for Work and Play

The LifeBook S-5582 series addresses the trade-off in weight versus feature by its modular design. Called the Mobile Slot, the S series notebook can take on the capabilities of ultra long life (2nd battery), entertainment (DVD), practicality (CD-R/RW), and storage (SuperDisk).

Entertainment and Backup Options

The Fujitsu LifeBook S-5582 comes equipped with a 3-in-1-combo drive (DVD-ROM/ CD-R/RW /CD-ROM), enabling its users to back up crucial data or transfer large volumes of information cost-effectively. With the addition of the IEEE 1394 'FireWire' port for high-speed data transfer, the LifeBook S series now claims true end-to-end capability to edit video and create VCDs on-the-go.

More Speed, More Power

This combination of performance and portability in the S series is delivered through the use of Intel®'s power-saving processor, the Mobile Pentium® III Processor-M, supporting SpeedStep™ technology. It runs up to 800MHz with 512KB secondary cache integrated and a 256MB SDRAM. Video RAM has been increased to 8MB, thus enhancing the playback of various video formats such as DVD or streaming video. The LifeBook S-5582 can pack up to 30GB of work, fun and games.


The LifeBook S series both come with integrated LAN and modem, leaving the PC card slot free for additional connectivity options such as the Fujitsu Bluetooth™ PC Card. The LifeBook also supports two USBs.

Enhanced User Experience

Despite the small A4-file size, Fujitsu's emphasis on user-friendliness and ergonomics are apparent in the full-sized keyboard. The Mobile Slot features a catch located at the side of the notebook which allows the modular option to pop out whilst the notebook is placed in a horizontal position. This is an important convenience feature as the user does not have to interrupt his work by tilting the notebook into an awkward position to change modular options.
