Fujitsu announced it will introduce the Esprimo Green computer at CeBIT in March, the company describes this system as a zero-watt PC. This will be one of the first computers that consumes no power at all while in standby mode.
European law mandates that such low power units become the norm by January 2010, and Fujitsu's main announcement is a follow-up to its earlier release of the zero-watt monitor.
The company said today that the first zero-watt PC, the Esprimo Green, would be available by the summer. The Esprimo Green consumes no power at all while in standby mode, but is still "administrable", according to the firm.
At Cebit, the computer maker will also show off the ultra-portable Esprimo Mobile Thin Client, which works with enterprise servers and stores its operating system in Flash memory and its data on a secure server.
Administration is simple, the company said, and can be managed through wireless LAN, Bluetooth and UMTS connections.
