Fujitsu announced the H710 and H910 high-performance notebooks
According to a company press release, the Japanese computer maker Fujitsu decided to address the growing demand for mobile workstations by introducing two new high-end laptops. The Celsius H710 and Celsius H910 will reportedly deliver much CPU/GPU power and easily handle graphics-intensive apps such as CAM/CAD. The manufacturer claims that these high-performance systems might just be the desktop replacement users were looking for.
The VP Workplace Systems at Fujitsu, Rajat Kakar, was quoted as saying: “The trend towards mobile workstations continues to grow. Fujitsu understands that professionals in a range of industries need both mobility and computing power; the CELSIUS H910 and CELSIUS H710 address this.”
Consumers are provided with a choice of speedy second generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core central processing units that will supposedly help them take even greater pleasure in using the high-end notebooks. The H910 comes with up to a Core i7-2920XM, which is currently the fastest mobile chip on the market, whereas the H710 packs up to an Intel Core i7-2820QM. Additionally, the CPUs are complemented by Full HD (1920-by-1080 pixels) brilliant, non-glare displays measuring either 15.6-in (H710) or 17.3-in (H910) in diagonal.
An NVIDIA Quadro 4000M GPU (with CUDA technology and DX11 support), which has 2GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM and 100W max. TDP will reportedly be part of the Celsius H910 standard configuration. According to Fujitsu, the smaller H710 model will ship with an NVIDIA Quadro 1000M. These powerful graphics controllers are reportedly able to handle demanding CAM/CAD applications.
The high-end H910 will ship with up to 32GB of RAM (4 DIMM DDR3 slots for Quad-Core CPUs) or up to 16GB if you choose this newly introduced Celsius laptop to be built around a Dual-Core processor. In addition, the systems will reportedly house one (H710) to two (H910) spacious mechanical hard drives (or SSDs) with a storage capacity of 1TB (7200rpm).
Users can stay connected thanks to the integrated Intel Centrino 6205 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0 antennas (BT 2.1 for the H710). Furthermore, there are 5 USB ports (3xUSB 2.0, 1xUSB 3.0 and 1xeSATA combo), a memory card reader, VGA and DisplayPort interface as well as one docking connector.
An optional built-in web camera is also available for video conferencing.

Both high-performance models will reportedly ship with a pre-installed copy of Microsoft’s Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) operating system. The company also promises long battery life and a starting weight of 4.25kg (H910) and 2.75kg (H710).
Further features include a Kensington Lock for enhanced security, an optional integrated 3G/UMTS module, a SIM card slot and a 3-year warranty.
Fujitsu’s H910 and H710 are now available with a starting price depending on the actual configuration.
