- A 14-inch wide-format display fit into a standard 13-inch form factor
- The LIFEBOOK UH90/L's advanced display panel utilizes IGZO technology
to achieve an ultra-high display resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels. With
approximately 2.7 times the detail of Full HD combined with a pixel density of
262 ppi, users can enjoy ultra-high resolution digital photos that are given a

Coating, enables users to smoothly navigate through Windows 8's touch
- In addition to its "ultra-compressed, solid core" design
resembling a single strong plank, the LIFEBOOK UH90/L is made extra tough to
withstand weight of around 200 kgf(4), as tested using a top-down pressure
test. The rough treatment that could be sustained on a crowded train, for
example, is no problem for the LIFEBOOK UH90/L.
- The use of omnidirectional design, or "Omnidesign," makes the
LIFEBOOK UH90/L aesthetically beautiful when examined at any angle, even from
the bottom or from the back. The new Ultrabook™ also boasts enhanced levels of
computing performance, with on-board features such as the latest 4th-Generation
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4200U Processor, as well as a 500GB hybrid HDD that

Pioneer includes a specially tuned on-board subwoofer (two 10W stereo speakers
+ one 10W subwoofer) that balances deep bass and crisp treble.
- By combining a 23-inch wide-format Full HD display together with IPS
technology for wider viewing angles, the ESPRIMO FH78/LD's display allows
users to experience the power of full high definition video, from any angle. In
addition, the system's approximately 3TB high-capacity HDD can store
numerous recorded digital broadcasts.
3. The LIFEBOOK AH Family: 15.6-inch notebook PC's enhanced levels of
The AH45/K model has a new high-capacity battery that gives it a usage life of
approximately 6.4 hours, roughly twice the duration of previous models.
Similarly, in addition to a new high-capacity battery with a life of about 7.9
hours, the AH42/K model has received a boost in computing performance thanks to
an upgraded CPU - the Intel(R) Pentium(R) Processor 2020M.
4. Newly updated My Cloud service
(1) Enjoy TV on the go
Through My Cloud, TV programs recorded and saved at home can be viewed on the
go with a smartphone or tablet. Not only can users view content saved on a
local PC hard drive at home, but also TV programs from TV recorders connected
to My Cloud. With this service, users can watch TV programs easily and simply
from any location, such as when on the train or waiting in line at stores.
The UH90/L and the FH78/LD are the world's first personal computers to
feature support for the DTCP+ specification for remote viewing via the
Internet. These machines are also the first PC's to receive certification
for DLPA remote access guidelines(5).
(2) Remotely turning on home air conditioners
In addition to the existing ability to turn off home air conditioners remotely
by using a smartphone, Fujitsu's My Cloud now can turn on air
conditioners, set temperature and air volume and control other settings. This
allows home air conditioners to be controlled with more precise timing, leading
to a reduction in wasted electricity and time. In the future, Fujitsu aims to
create a system for greater control of electronics at home, called ECHONET
Lite, by utilizing My Cloud as a controller for HEMS (Home Energy Management
(3) Easier photo and video download
My Cloud has been integrated with the F-LINK application for downloading
photos and video. Users can now easily download content onto a PC using an
identical process, whether through wireless, SD card, or USB cable connection.
The My Cloud Start feature for browsing photos and video can be activated with
a single click to more easily enjoy from download to viewing.
