Fujitsu introduces new Lifebook S761
Fujitsu is preparing to launch a new light-weight laptop that won’t be sacrificing performance for its reduced size.
Called the Lifebook S761, the 13.3-inch notebook is packed with a number of ports and impressive software features for a sub 15-inch laptop. Examples include memory card, ExpressCard, and SIM card slots, both USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, HDMI with VGA-out and WIDI support. A spill-resistant keyboard with ShockSensor, fingerprint reader, Trusted Platform Module (TPM), and Computrance Security rounds up many of the notebook features.
Outside of connectivity and software options, the Lifebook can be outfitted from a range of Sandy Bridge Intel Core processors, up to a 2.7GHz Core i7-2620M with 8GB of DDR RAM. A 128GB SSD option is available if users are unsatisfied with HDD performance. The entire package could weigh as low as 1.66kg (3.66 pounds). Unfortunately, the data sheet oddly does not state the display resolution of the Lifebook, and only gives the maximum external display resolution.
Perhaps most impressive, however, is the expected battery life of the S761. Its 6-cell battery can last for up to 11.5 hours, but can last for an even longer 16.5 hours with an optional secondary 3-cell battery. Much like the recently announced Lenovo ThinkPads, the Lifebook S761 has an open modular bay on the side for accepting a secondary battery or even a DVD-drive.
Official prices and launch dates remain unknown, but we will have updates as soon as they become available.
