Fujitsu has announced the immediate availability of six new additions to its proGREEN range of energy-efficient computers and laptops. All of the new models are Energy Star certified and are powered by Intel Core i3/i5 or i7 processors, with the LIFEBOOK E780 being claimed to have a huge 18-hour battery life.
Fujitsu has added two new ESPRIMO desktop models to its proGREEN range, the E9900 and the P9900. Both models benefit from Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors with integrated graphics on Intel's Q57 chipset and can handle up to 16Gb DDR3 RAM. The motherboards are halogen-free and the power source on both machines is 89 percent energy efficient. The E9900 has 12 USB 2.0 ports and the P9900 has 14 and both offer storage solutions up to 1Tb, with SSD options also available on the latter.
Two LIFEBOOK's also join the green party, the E780 with a 15.6-inch up to 1600 x 900 LED backlit display and a claimed 18-hour performance with dual batteries. And the S710 with a 14-inch 1366 x 768 LED backlit display. Both notebooks are powered by Intel Core i5/i7 processors on a QM57 chipset with Intel HD graphics and come with SSD or HDD storage and up to 8Gb DDR3 RAM and achieve up to 25 percent better energy efficiency than previous models. Fujitsu’s Advanced Theft Protection module and both WiFi and 3G also feature. The E780 is priced at around US$1230 and the S710 costs $1100.
The last two models in the proGREEN half dozen are both CELSIUS branded, the W280 desktop solution and the H700 mobile workstation. The desktop workstation is Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processor-powered on a Q57 chipset, is available in both SSD and HDD options and comes with a choice of internal or external graphics and 5.1 high definition audio capabilities. The high definition (up to full 1080p) 15.6-inch H700 is available in either Intel Core i5 or i7 options, up to 500Gb HDD or 128Gb SSD storage and up to 8Gb DDR3 RAM.
