Fujitsu revealed the LifeBook SH531 laptop
Fujitsu has recently introduced a new light and thin LifeBook laptop dubbed SH531. The device is reportedly targeted towards both home users and professionals on-the-go and has a starting price of about US $720.
The notebook in question sports a 13.3-inch LED-backlit Anti-Glare widescreen display that has an HD native resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels. Built around an Intel HM65 Chipset, the SH531 can be powered by up to a second generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5-2430M central processing unit with a clock frequency of 2.4GHz (up to 3.0GHz via Turbo Boost 2.0). This chip offers 3MB of Level 3 cache, 35W max. TDP and Hyper-Threading support.
Graphics will apparently be taken care of by the integrated Intel HD 3000 video card that employs dynamically allocated shared VRAM. In addition, Fujitsu’s latest LifeBook houses up to 8GB of internal DDR3 memory and up to a 500GB mechanical hard drive that rotates at 5400 rounds per minute. A built-in Blu-Ray drive is supposedly also available.
Customers can stay connected thanks to the Wireless LAN 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Gigabit Ethernet modules. Moreover, there are three USB 2.0 ports (one is an eSATA combo), an HDMI output, a memory card reader slot and a Kensington Lock for enhanced security. You can also use the built-in 1.3MP web camera for video conferencing.
The LifeBook SH531 ships with up to a pre-installed Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit operating system. According to the manufacturer, the notebook weighs 1.9kg with a 6-cell Lithium-ion battery, which can operate autonomously for up to 6.5hrs.
The new Fujitsu laptop is now available for purchase in a matte finish.
