Fujitsu says its all-in-one PC-phones cut power consumption for unified communications

Peter Sayer | March 10, 2014
Unifying communications by replacing separate PCs and telephones with a PC equipped with a headset and some telephony software can sound like a great idea until the first electricity bill for those always-on PCs comes in. Fujitsu hopes to end that bill shock with an always-on multimedia PC for businesses that features a special power-saving mode.

The Lifebook U904 weighs 1.39 kilograms and has a 14-inch, 3200-by-1800 pixel display, with a touch-sensitive option available. Options include Intel Core vPro, i5 or i7 processors running at up to 3.3GHz; up to 10GB of RAM (2GB soldered on the main board, and one DIMM slot for up to 8GB); a hybrid 500GB hard disk or a 512GB solid-state drive, and an LTE module to connect to 4G mobile networks.

This machine, without the PalmSecure module, is already in Fujitsu's German online store priced between €1470 and €1900 including value-added tax, depending on the model.

A Fujitsu representative demonstrating the palm-vein authentication at the company's news conference estimated the sensor would add €100 to €150 to the cost of the laptop.

Cebit runs through Friday at the fairgrounds in Hanover, Germany.
