For its ultra-portable LifeBook P1610 and the B6210, Fujitsu will be offering a new option to equip the device with a solid state disk instead of a hard drive for better durability and reliability. The rugged-enhanced notebooks, designed for optimal portability and data protection, are ideal for medium-sized and large organizations within vertical markets, including healthcare, aviation, and field service, which require a light and compact, but highly durable mobile computer.
The 2.2-pound LifeBook P1610 convertible touch screen notebook and 3.2-pound LifeBook B6210 touch screen notebook are now offered with two flash-based SSD configurations, 16 GB or 32 GB. SSDs offer lower power consumption, added ruggedness, high reliability, and improved performance.
In addition to providing significantly more durability and data protection than traditional hard disk drives, there are no moving parts to fail or heads to crash. SSDs are noise free, generate virtually no heat and weigh half as much as traditional notebook hard drives.
LifeBook P1610 notebook with rugged caseSSDs also offer faster performance and quicker boot-up time because data access is virtually instantaneous. Unlike traditional hard disk drives there is no need to spin the platters up to speed, no seek time, and no rotational latency. SSDs also read two times faster and write up to 60% faster than other hard drives. In addition to the added durability all of this translates to a much faster experience and longer battery life.
The LifeBook P1610 notebook and its predecessor, the LifeBook P1510 notebook, can be further fortified in tablet mode with an optional 3/4-inch thick flexible Santoprene case. The case, which provides access to all ports, offers additional protection against accidental drops, bumps and the rigors of a day on the road.
The LifeBook P1610 convertible notebook, a light-weight powerhouse packed with full PC functionality and an 8.9-inch indoor/outdoor touch screen, is designed for on-the-go mobile professionals who require the flexibility of a tablet for note-taking or navigating through forms-based applications, along with the traditional keyboard input of a notebook computer. The LifeBook B6210 notebook, popular in fast-paced, forms-intensive workplaces, is equipped with a bright 12.1-inch XGA display offering the flexibility of touch screen input and the productivity of a notebook computer.
