Fujitsu Packs Heavyweight Performance in Portable Package With CELSIUS Mobile H Workstation

8/22/2002 - Fujitsu PC Corporation (FPC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, eliminated the divide between desktop workstations and notebooks with the powerful CELSIUS® Mobile H workstation. Combining the best of both worlds, the CELSIUS Mobile H is a true "two-in-one" system—a professional-grade workstation capable of tackling the most intense design, simulation and digital content creation applications, and a smart, stylish notebook that can travel anywhere.

The Fujitsu CELSIUS Mobile H workstation easily outclasses conventional PCs in terms of raw processor power, graphics performance, storage capacity and multimedia capabilities. The system incorporates an advanced Mobile Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor – M running at 1.9GHz which supports enhanced Intel SpeedStep® technology, a massive 60GB (5400 RPM) integrated hard drive1 and up to 1GB of DDR-SDRAM system memory. Together with an NVIDIATM Quadro®4 500 Go GL graphics accelerator and an impressive 64MB of unified graphics memory, the CELSIUS Mobile H provides a superior visual experience while editing 3D graphics in real-time, running computer simulations and multimedia animations.

"We live in an increasingly mobile world where deals can be struck anywhere," said Sara Nelson, vice president of marketing for Fujitsu PC Corporation. "The Fujitsu CELSIUS Mobile H workstation was designed to be a serious, professional-class system enabling architects, designers and engineers to take their 3D designs to the client and implement changes on location, significantly improving interaction between the manufacturer and the customer and increasing the likelihood of closing that deal on the spot."

The CELSIUS Mobile H is intended for those who demand outstanding performance when running even the most highly complex applications. The notebook has been certified by many of the leading CAD/CAM and digital content creation software companies to ensure it can easily handle any application its users may need.

The CELSIUS Mobile H has also been outfitted with a wealth of innovative features for maximum functionality. A large, crisp 15.1-inch UXGA (1600 x 1200) display presents 3D graphics in the best possible effect while its magnesium-alloy casing contributes to heat dissipation and overall durability. Two modular bays accommodate a primary 9-cell battery and DVD/CD-RW combination drive standard but can also be used for any combination of devices such as two additional 60GB hard drives or an optical drive and a hard drive when using an AC power source. For maximum mobility, two batteries can be installed to support lengthy untethered computing. The notebook is also equipped with a removable wireless keyboard for more ergonomic working and can be accompanied with an optional port replicator for fast and easy connection to desktop peripherals.

In addition to the powerful design, the CELSIUS Mobile H possesses an industry-leading combination of security features, making it one of the most secure notebooks in the world. An integrated fingerprint scanner with BIOS-Boot protection, embedded Smart Card reader and data encryption on the hard drive help ensure that sensitive data never falls into the wrong hands.

As for connectivity, the CELSIUS Mobile H is outfitted with a modem and Ethernet connection, two USB ports, IEEE 1394, S video, TV out and S/PDIF out ports. A digital video out connection is also included, allowing the notebook to support an enhanced video signal superior to standard analog.

The system comes preinstalled with Microsoft Windows XP Professional or Windows 2000 Professional and is certified for SuSE and Redhat Linux operating system. It is sold through Fujitsu reseller channels as well as at or 1-877-FPC-DIRECT. Pricing begins at $3,9992.
