Just one day before St. Patrick's Day, Fujitsu has revealed a batch of new laptops and desktops in its proGREEN line: two ESPRIMO PCs, two LIFEBOOK notebooks and two CELSIUS workstations. All devices feature pre-installed management and Energy Star 5.0 certification. Several also sport power optimized processors such as the Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 vPro.
For starters, Fujitsu's two energy-efficient desktops, the pro GREEN ESPRIMO E9900 and P9900, use Intel's latest Core i5 vPro processor and a power supply with up to 89-percent efficiency. The motherboard is halogen-free, reducing the amount of toxic chemicals needed for production.
The company's "green" notebooks, the LIFEBOOK E780 and S710, will arrive in 14-inch and 15.6-inch Energy Star 5.0 flavors. Fujitsu claims that the notebooks are 25-percent more energy efficient than previous models, with an added energy savings achieved by using an AC adapter with 87-percent efficiency. The E780 notebook even supposedly runs on 18 hours of life using two batteries.
To round out the "green" package, the CELSIUS workstations consist of a desktop (W280) and a laptop (H700), both of which feature Nvidia graphics. Both models achieve high performance while conserving energy, taking advantage of Intel's Core i7 processors. Fujitsu said that the CELSIUS models are also energy Star certified.
Currently pricing is not available, nor did the company release detailed specs on the machines.
That's still pretty decent though. Pricing will be interesting.
its not that i don't care about the environment or whatever my thing is that is has become annoying, can we not call it energy efficient, or environmentally friendly instead of putting a label on it? are we that lazy as to have to use a shorter word?
bleh, in anycase, 18 hour battery life laptop seems interesting to me... long road trips anyone?
now that's green
