Fujitsu Announces Spring 2011 Line of FMV Series of Personal Computers

Fujitsu Limited

Tokyo, January 12, 2011

Fujitsu today announced that it has updated its FMV Series of consumer-oriented personal computers with a total of 22 models in 9 families. The new models will be available only in Japan, beginning January 20, 2011.

Ten models will be equipped with the latest version of the Intel® Core™ processor family for fast performance and smooth operation. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 ensures that even processor-intensive tasks like playing and editing high-definition video (AVCHD format) are effortless.

The new lineup includes a range of models designed to suit modern lifestyles. The LIFEBOOK family of notebooks includes the SH-class models, which work equally well as a home's main computer, and out and about as a mobile PC. The ESPRIMO family of desktops includes the FH- and EH-class all-in-one models with built-in liquid crystal displays, all of which are equipped with tuners for terrestrial digital TV broadcasts. FH-class models can simultaneously tune in two digital programs transmitted over terrestrial broadcast, broadcast satellite, or 110° communications satellite, and have ultra-long "10x double recording" mode(1) to store a maximum of 1,789 hours(2) of programming, so customers can enjoy their fill of television.

Finally, with the addition of the FH99/CM to the lineup, Fujitsu brings a new dimension to digital media, with a 3D display that does not require special glasses to view.

Key Features of the Spring 2011 Models

1. Equipped with the latest version of Intel® Core™ processors for fast performance

For effortless playback and editing of high-definition video (AVCHD format) and other processor-intensive tasks, ten models in the FMV series are equipped with the latest version of Intel® Core™ high-performance processor, including models in the ESPRIMO all-in-one desktop family with wide-format LCD screens as large as 23", the LIFEBOOK family of notebooks with wide-format 12.1" liquid crystal displays, and the high-spec PH74/C mini notebook. With the updated Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, processors can step up their clock speed to deal with more demanding tasks, ensuring smooth performance when handling high-definition video. For the first time, three models are being offered with the latest quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-2630QM processor: the NH77/CD with a 17.3" wide-format display, the AH77/C with a 15.6" wide-format liquid crystal display, and the FH99/CM and FH98/CM all-in-ones with a 23" wide-format liquid crystal display.

In addition, with support for Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) which enables media stored on a computer to be transmitted wirelessly to and displayed on a television, customers can edit videos in high definition on their computers and watch them on their large-screen televisions.
