What exactly embodies the Fujitsu LifeBook? Are they as powerful as they are stylish? Or are they merely fancy looking gadgets for the privileged? Many users will beg to differ, as you are about to discover what sets the Fujitsu LifeBook series far apart from the competition.

First of all, if you have already seen what any of the LifeBook models looks like, you would agree that it is a very stylish notebook. The attention-grabbing, high-gloss designs are sure to impress. But it does offer more than just good looks, the LifeBook series delivers outstanding performance, is packed with features, and they are designed to be light weight and capable of working in harsh environments whether it's at a construction site or in the office.


The LifeBook's security and protection software are unparalleled. It offers security features such as BIOS lock, 2-password Hard Disk and LifeBook lock, Anti-theft lock slot as well as security buttons and Smartcard support for enhanced data and hardware protection. Data encryption and transaction security can be customised using the Trusted Platform Module. For even more protection, the LifeBook can come with the biometric Fingerprint Sensor so that you – and only you – will have access to your important data.


In 2003, Fujitsu became the first company to offer a tablet which was able to morph from a regular notebook to a proper tablet and receive hand written commands. Since then there been some innovative improvements in the use of the pen.

Pen Flicks enables you to use short gestures to quickly navigate and perform shortcuts, and you can customise your own Pen Flicks for a more natural control.

When you need to take down quick notes, you can jot it down instead of typing it out. If you like, Windows Vista hand writing recognition is able to recognise your hand writing, convert to text and insert into a document. It's even smart enough to learn your hand writing style.

Instead of using the old Print Screen function, which can only take screen shot of the whole window, you can use the Snipping Tool to draw any shape around the object to automatically cut and capture a screenshot of it. Then of course you can add handwritten notes.

In addition to their innovation, Fujitsu also has a unique SlimEdge screen frame design which provides a wider display area for pure viewing pleasure.

Fujitsu offers added protection against minor accidents – users don't have to worry about damage due to vibrations and shocks as it is equipped with Fujitsu’s 3D Shock Sensor incorporating a 3D accelerometer. You don't have to worry about accidental spills with Fujitsu’s spill-resistant keyboard. Another unique feature of Fujitsu is the black suede patches on the bottom which reduce heat.


When many people hear about Fujitsu, they first think of air conditioners. But make no mistake; they have fast become a leader in mobile PC due to their innovation and sophistication. From the ever so flexible LifeBook P series to the ultra portable U Series, there's a tablet PC that's perfect for you.
