Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 – symbol of simplicity in a modern oriental design concept.

The legacy of Fujitsu’s ultra-portable notebook PC continues with the simply designed LifeBook P7230, for today’s executive mobile professionals who need the full power of a mobile office wherever they are.

Sydney Australia, January 22 2007 – Fujitsu PC Australia today proudly announces the LifeBook P7230, an ultra-mobile successor to the highly-acclaimed LifeBook P7120. Designed for the frequent-traveling and minimalist sets, the newest style icon is all about clean lines and innovation.

David Niu, Product Manager for Fujitsu PC Australia explains “The new LifeBook P7230 lets active mobile users live life to the fullest. Travel the world with it as it documents your creditable performance with executive efficiency, facilitates your leisurely pursuits and embraces your memories, all in a wholly uncomplicated fashion.”

For those who are constantly seeking to simplify their lives, seek comfort in the minimally designed computing companion. From its sleek magnesium alloy casing to the clean lines running across the backlit panel and everything in between, the LifeBook P7230 is designed to be a new classic. Even the LED panel has been carefully enhanced to complete the embedded design subtleties. Upon powering on, the LED lights illuminate one by one, in a soft, orderly and elegant manner to soothe your mind.

Smaller than a piece of A4 paper, and having barely a 3cm profile, the LifeBook P7230 weighs only about 1.33kg with a 10.6-inch Superfine Wide XGA TFT-LCD screen. Yet, the petite unit is packed with essential features you would expect today’s modern computer to be equipped with, including being fully upgradeable to Windows Vista™.

Among the impressive line-up of features are a lightweight Dual Layer DVD Super Multi Writer, digital dual array built-in microphones and dual built-in stereo speakers, and a built-in digital camera so you can make VoIP Internet phone calls and webcam video calls on-demand through today’s popular instant messaging software programs with just about anybody you wish – or not – to see. With a generous battery life of up to 6 hours, you can be assured of hours of entertainment and productivity while on-the-move!

In addition, the RF-based fingerprint sensor delivers biometric security features to protect your computer and your data from unauthorized use, while data integrity is carefully protected by Fujitsu 3-dimensional shock sensor.

And naturally, Fujitsu remains firmly committed to the promotion of a cleaner environment, implementing the European Union’s Restriction of Hazardous Substances directive (RoHS) across our entire range of products, allowing Fujitsu to stay keenly focused on our customers’ health and well-being, embracing a healthier environment for all.
