SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 8 /-- Fujitsu Computer Systems today announced the sleek and light ultra-portable LifeBook(R) P7120 notebook designed for professionals on the go. With a cool black exterior, slimmer silhouette and a 10.6-inch LED lit widescreen display, the successor to the LifeBook P7010 notebook merges a lightweight form factor with performance, long battery life and total security.

Weighing just over three pounds(1), the LifeBook P7120 notebook is the smallest and lightest full-featured notebook with a built-in, but removable media bay for an optical drive or extra battery delivering up to 11 hours(2) of computing time. Battery life is also extended with the Fujitsu ECO button, a proprietary power-saving mode that with a single press allows users to reduce power consumption for components, including disabling the optical disk drive or reducing the display brightness.

Powered by an Intel(R) Pentium(R) M Processor Ultra Low Voltage 753 (1.20 GHz) and Intel 915GMS chipset, the LifeBook P7120 notebook delivers optimal computing power. With a Crystal View XGA TFT display for indoor as well as casual outdoor viewing, the LifeBook P7120 notebook delivers brilliant colors and crisper images for enjoyable movie viewing and multimedia presentations.

"The LifeBook P7120 notebook reflects the computing needs of mobile professionals, particularly the demand for extended battery life while maintaining lighter weight," said Paul Moore, director of mobile product marketing, Fujitsu Computer Systems. "Running out of battery is incredibly frustrating. With a removable media bay to accommodate an extra battery, along with the new ECO button for reduced power consumption, the LifeBook P7120 notebook can keep going throughout the entire day."

The LifeBook P7120 notebook delivers the performance and reliability mobile users expect from Fujitsu, recently rated tops for reliability among Microsoft Windows-based notebooks in PC Magazine's 18th annual Reader Satisfaction Survey.

With the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), a combination of an integrated security chip with sophisticated data encryption software and built-in biometric fingerprint swipe sensors included as standard features, the LifeBook P7120 notebook offers safeguards to prevent unauthorized data access.

Staying connected when mobile is easy with a seamlessly integrated Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915a/b/g Network Connection or Atheros Super AG(R) Wireless LAN, modem, 10/100 Ethernet and Bluetooth wireless option. The LifeBook P7120 notebook offers three conveniently placed USB 2.0 ports, an IEEE 1394 port, S-Video port and High Definition (HD) audio in and out jacks. Accessing photo or video files is easy via a combination of Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick(R) PRO and xD card slots.
