Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7120

Fujitsu Siemens Computers has added a new model to its ultra-portable Lifebook P Series. The new Lifebook P7120 sports many features that make it a must-have item for mobile executives: from a striking glossy black finish, battery life that lasts up to a full working day, through to a weight of only 1.28 kg, the new Lifebook P7120 is the lightest, fully-functional notebook available with a modular bay, brilliant widescreen display and technology to support all necessary connectivity possibilities.

A key requirement for the mobile professional is long battery life. To specifically address this, Fujitsu Siemens Computers developed a unique EcoButton. This integrated software solution improves power management and allows for considerably prolonged battery life: only one click is required to change all power settings without disrupting productive work, e.g. disabling optical disk drives and reduce display brightness. The EcoButton feature will be shared by all next-generation LIFEBOOK models. Adding a second battery to the LIFEBOOK P7120 battery life is extendable up to max 11.5 hours through.

The need for a full-function and powerful notebook in a slim and attractive form factor is particularly strong among professionals such as sales representatives, consultants and highly mobile executives. They use their notebook in very demanding situations, from a regular PC to a customer presentation platform, their notebook is their corporate backbone while on the road. They demand a notebook that combines state-of-the-art technology with special screen functionality, that make it ideal for multimedia applications.

Equipped with LED backlights, the display delivers brilliant colors while the higher contrast 15:9 format produces crisper images. It also absorbs most external light and has wider viewing angles than conventional notebook screens. A biometric fingerprint sensor is standard. The LIFEBOOK P7120 is tied to the Trusted Platform Module, which acts as a hardware vault for passwords and encrypted keys. The hard disk drive shock absorbers, meanwhile, reduce vibration to ensure higher data availability and prevent losses. And with an eye to the future, the LIFEBOOK P7120 is VoIP-ready, featuring best speech recognition with latest array microphones.

The LIFEBOOK P7120 will hit the market in November, prices starting at €2,699.
