<p><em>Understanding that mobile professionals of today value not only style and
power but also earth-friendliness, Fujitsu puts on its innovative prowess once
again to create computing products with extreme power-efficiency, stunning display
and superior graphics performance.</em><br/>
<strong>Sydney Australia</strong> - <strong>02 September, 2009</strong> - Fujitsu
PC Australia today brings the desirability of its popular thin and light laptops
up yet another notch by launching the new Fujitsu LifeBook S6520 and S6420. Integrated
with the latest graphics processor engine, the S3 Graphics Chrome 430 ULP, these
new computing gems enable new possibilities in energy-saving and graphics capability.<br/>
<strong>Mr. Joseph Lau, Product Manager </strong>says, “Fujitsu constantly
redefines lifestyle by building new innovations upon proven ones so that users
can enjoy more of the good things – portability, visual pleasure and functions
with less of the undesirable things – energy wastage, weight and hassle.
Our latest products are a testament to the maxim of infinite possibilities as
they come with a discrete graphics solution that supports Microsoft® DirectX®10.1
to offer superior image and texture rendering performance while allowing the machine
to stay cool under the hood with industry leading power-efficiency architecture.”<br/>
<strong>Fujitsu LifeBook S6520</strong><br/>
The sophisticated S6520 impresses with a luminous black magnesium cover and ultra-thin
profile, which opens up to unveil an impressive 14.1” Wide SuperFine Back
Light LED screen housed in a 13.3” Wide form factor - the widest display
in a 13.3”W form factor, thanks to Fujitsu’s award-winning SlimEdge
Design. Expect no less than a terrific viewing experience with crystal clear picture
quality with a brightness rating of 300nits. And now with the S3 Chrome 430 ULP
with PowerWiseTM technology for an optimal balance between performance and power,
get set to experience superior graphics performance. Besides providing best-in-class
graphics performance that supports Microsoft® DirectX®10.1, the S6520
also supports high definition quality playback with the ChromotionHD Video Technology
for just the perfect viewing experience.<br/>
The SlimEdge Design has thrilled demanding computer users worldwide – with
edges only 5.6mm wide, it offers an additional 12.5% active display surface as
compared to other notebooks of a similar size range. This wide screen also realises
the possibility of launching two applications in a horizontal layout to bring
about optimal display space for the professionals. The Fujitsu LifeBook S6520
wins hearts with its incredibly light 1.7kg body, making it exceptionally easy
to bring around.<br/>
With the S6520, it is a breeze to enjoy Instant Messaging and to experience other
converged communications instantaneously as it has a built-in 1.3 Mega Pixel Web
Camera and Dual Built-in Stereo Microphones. The LifeBook S6520 is powered by
the latest refreshed Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology, while supporting
the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor, with an Intel® PM45 Express Chipset
and Intel® WiFi Link 5300AGN (3x3) for wireless connection to enable both
indoor or outdoor business and social activities.<br/>
Knowing that long battery life matters to professionals on the move, Fujitsu built
the LifeBook S6520 with a 6-cell Li-ion 5800mAh battery that offers up to 3.5
hours of usage and even more if you turn to its new high capacity 2500mAh bay
battery for back-up. This battery can be stored in the swappable modular bay of
the S6520, which can also function with a weight saver when the optical drive
is not in use. In addition, the modular bay has a Dual Layer DVD Super Multi writer
to guarantee compatibility across the gamut of CD/DVD types, particularly CD-R,
CD-RW, DVD-R, DVD-RW and DVD-RAM.<br/>

security features including the Fujitsu 3D Shock Sensor, BIOS Lock, LifeBook Lock,
