The new Fujitsu LifeBook C Series systems use the Intel chip running at 1.6GHz, as well as Intel's 845MP chipset, according to Fujitsu representatives.
The LifeBook is being billed as a feature-rich system for users looking to take advantage of the latest multimedia technology. Priced at $1,999 (£1,402), the LifeBook C Series comes with a 15-inch XGA display, options for either CD-ROM, DVD, or DVD/CD-RW drives, up to a 40Gbyte hard drive, and 256Mbyte of DDR memory.
Optional 802.11b wireless LAN technology will also be available in May this year, according to Fujitsu representatives. Fujitsu laptops, like laptops from Sony and Hitachi, have been gaining acceptance by a class of users generally referred to as CxO's - or senior company executives - who see the systems as a tier above the typically issued corporate laptops from vendors such as Dell and IBM, according to industry observers.
