Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today debuted six new notebooks and tablet PCs based on next-generation Intel Centrino 2 (Montevina) Processor Technology. The New A6120, E8420, S6520, S7220, T5010 and T1010 offer a broad range of features and performance all at reasonable prices.
On the tablet PC side of the house, the LifeBook T5010 convertible tablet PC ($1,769) and the new LifeBook T1010 convertible tablet PC ($1,299) are equipped with a 13.3-inch display, yet weigh in at just 4.5 pounds and 5.3 pounds, respectively. The enterprise class LifeBook T5010 convertible tablet PC offers a modular bay that can accommodate an optical drive or a second battery and supports Intel Centrino 2 with vPro technology. The LifeBook T1010 convertible tablet PC, which offers a fixed optical drive, and has all the power of the LifeBook T5010 notebook without the additional high-end security features required by enterprise customers, is more geared towards consumers, small businesses and educational institutions.
