LifeBook A6220 Gets Swappable Tartan Patterned Colour Lids

SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Oct. 14, 2008 - Fujitsu Computer Systems Corporation today announced that three Fujitsu LifeBook(R) notebooks have been enhanced with new features that make mobile computing faster, safer and more stylish. The LifeBook A6220 desktop alternative notebook gets a dose of pizzazz with swappable tartan patterned colour lids, while the LifeBook P8020 and LifeBook T2020 ultra-portable notebooks get performance boosts with the new Intel(R) Centrino(R) 2 Ultra Low Voltage processor technology.

The LifeBook A6220 notebook with a 15.4-inch Crystal View WXGA display --previously enhanced with the latest Intel(R) Centrino(R) 2 processor technology -- joins the LifeBook A1110 notebook in offering the industry's first swappable lids. Mobile professionals can choose from a tartan pattern in indigo, red or gold -- and change lids by simply snapping them onto the LCD cover.

In addition to offering next-generation processor technology, the LifeBook P8020 notebook features a gesture-enabled touchpad. Both the LifeBook P8020 and LifeBook T2020 notebooks will offer solid state drive options later this year.
