Fujitsu has refreshed its Lifebook E Series of business-focused laptops with new 14in and 15.6in models. As these share the same components and accessories as existing models, they can slot right into an existing corporate deployment, Fujitsu said..
Available now via Fujitsu and from August via its distributor partners, the new 14in LifeBook E544 and 15.6in LifeBook E554 deliver comprehensive business features including enterprise-class security, a claimed battery runtime of up to 11 hours, plus the required level of system performance, according to Fujitsu.
The new models complement the existing E Series line-up that Fujitsu introduced in 2013. All the models share the same motherboard and firmware, are compatible with the same desktop dock hardware, and share components and accessories such as modular bay peripherals, including a slot-in projector.
This level of commonality has been introduced in order to reduce the cost of supporting a large number of laptops across a large organisation, Fujitsu said. It allows firms to deploy different-sized laptops without needing to maintain multiple different system images or supporting a different set of drivers for each model.
In line with the existing E series, both new models offer a choice of Core i3 and Core i5 processors, up to 16GB of memory and various Sata and solid-state drive (SSD) storage options. Both can also be specified with either Microsoft Windows 7 Professional or Windows 8.1 Professional.
Enterprise-class security options include a fingerprint sensor, Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip and smartcard reader. Pricing for the new models will vary by model and configuration, Fujitsu said.
