New Generation of Best-Selling Fujitsu LIFEBOOK E Series Notebook
- Thinner, sleeker design gives new LIFEBOOK E series notebooks a contemporary look
- Full HD displays, backlit keyboards and biometrics make the business class notebook models desirable to end-users
- Value-focused LIFEBOOK E series models are packed with connectivity
All new LIFEBOOK E4 and LIFEBOOK E5 series models feature the new area type fingerprint sensor that responds instantly to provide one-touch login and system unlock. Also focusing on ease-of-use, Fujitsu introduces a precision touchpad that is more accurate, with support for three-finger gestures as featured in the latest version of Microsoft Windows 10, and a sculpted, ergonomic palm rest.
Focus on value for money with the brand new LIFEBOOK E4 family
Providing excellent value for money was the focus in developing a completely new entry level model, the LIFEBOOK E4 series. The 15.6-inch and 14-inch notebooks come with the 7th Gen Intel® Core™ processor and feature a choice of HD or Full HD anti-glare displays, and provide day-long battery runtime. Fujitsu has focused on making it simple to access and interchange components including memory, hard drives and connectivity components like LTE and WLAN, while batteries can be exchanged without any need to dismantle the notebook.
The new LIFEBOOK E5 family aims to build on its heritage as a firm favorite with enterprises, with features such as embedded 4G/LTE, support for classic VGA outputs and a full size Ethernet port. The thinner LIFEBOOK E5 is now just 23.9 mm high, a 24 percent reduction on the outgoing model1
. The LIFEBOOK E5 boasts a choice of 15.6-inch and 14-inch anti-glare, Full HD displays and the latest, 8th generation Intel® Core™ processor, plus high-end notebook features such as an optional backlit keyboard. Ease of maintenance and administration is assured due to the use of the same BIOS and disk images, and a common format for shared spares such as batteries. Both LIFEBOOK E5 models share the same port replicator with the ultra-mobile LIFEBOOK U7 family.
Ruediger Landto, Head of Category Management for Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu EMEIA, says: “The new business-class LIFEBOOK E series includes components like fingerprint sensors, smartcard readers and a full range of current and legacy ports, so there’s no need for users to carry around a bag of adaptors to connect to projectors, displays, networks and peripherals. Both our new-generation LIFEBOOK E series models are designed to empower users, thanks to day-long battery life, crisp, clear displays, ergonomic, tactile keyboards, and optional features such as new USB Type-C ports and unrivalled connectivity including 4G/LTE via an integrated SIM card slot.”
