- New LIFEBOOK E series notebooks share accessories and BIOS for easy
deployment and management

- No compromise design delivers on enterprise mobility management
SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fujitsu today announced
its new LIFEBOOK® E Series family of business notebook computers, designed to
optimize enterprise mobility. The stylish and lightweight premium notebook PCs
are ideal for demanding business users who are constantly on the go, require
reliable devices and want to save on costs, but not compromise on features.
As expected from a leading enterprise notebook manufacturer such as Fujitsu,
the new LIFEBOOK E Series includes new features that address the mobility
demands of CIOs and the enterprise market. These features help ensure that
corporate ICT departments can enjoy cost savings from the use of standardized
components and accessories such as the main board, modular bay devices, AC
adapters and docking stations. Fujitsu, which is one of the top IT services
companies in the world, is no stranger to corporate IT needs and once again
has been named a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Global Enterprise
Desktops and Notebooks (source: Gartner, published November 2012).
While businesses of all sizes continue to extend the reach of "bring your own
device" (BYOD) programs, they are also focused on the cost of supporting these
devices for the enterprise. The LIFEBOOK E Series with its complementary
components, accessories, and BIOS make BYOD, a typically costly task,
manageable and cost effective. The LIFEBOOK E Series family is available in
three form factors that focus on the heavy mobile users as well as individuals
who want a mobile 15" desktop alternative.
Better professional tools
Fujitsu designed the LIFEBOOK E Series to deliver the performance and
flexibility needs of the corporate customer in a changing environment. All
three of the new LIFEBOOK models offer full business functionality and
convenient functions that are expected in today's premium business notebooks.
The LIFEBOOK E Series is available as 13", 14" and 15.6" models, and includes
a roomy touchpad with integrated buttons, an optional backlit keyboard, and
the Fujitsu signature modular bay that is capable of hosting a second battery,
a second hard disk drive, an optical drive or a weight saver module to give
users the lightest possible traveling weight.
And as with all of the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK products, the new LIFEBOOK E Series
models are designed to last, with an aluminum palm rest, solid magnesium lid
to protect the system during travels.
"The LIFEBOOK E Series is designed to ease the complexities and costs of
deploying devices within an organization. Designed to deliver a product line
that can meet the needs of enterprise mobile users, while satisfying the ICT
department heads' support requirements is no easy task," said Paul Moore,
senior director of product management and marketing, mobile products at
Fujitsu America. "The LIFEBOOK E Series provides users with the style,
performance, security and durability required in today's mobile world. Fujitsu
is making it possible for business professionals in industries such as
education, healthcare and government to customize this notebook to fit their
