Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC) today launched its contributions to the European mobile computer market. FSC is shipping three lines under the LifeBook brand, its first notebook products since the company cemented its union on 1 October. The LifeBook S series is based on the Pentium III 450MHz, with a 6GB hard drive, 64MB memory and 12.1in TFT screen. It measures 228 x 225 x 24.5mm and weighs 1.7kg. It is priced at Euro 2599 (£1646) and FSC claims it is the lightest PIII-based notebook on the market. The B2130, from the LifeBook B series, has an Intel Celeron 400MHz, 6GB hard drive, 10.4in TFT with touch screen and 64MB memory. It is 250 x 197 x 28.5mm and weighs 1.4kg. It costs Euro 1999 euros (£1266). The third range the company launched today was the C series, with Celeron 400 MHz or Pentium II 366MHz. These machines have a 4.3GB hard drive, with either 2MB (Celeron) memory and 12.1in TFT screen, or 64MB (Pentium II) and 14.1in TFT. It measures 308 x 273.5 x 39.5mm, weighs 2.7kg and costs Euro 1299 (£822). All machines come with built-in V.90 modem and Windows 98 and NT. The only component in the machines not made by either Fujitsu or Siemens was the Intel chip, the company said. And as most of the technology used in the machines was developed by Fujitsu, the same product lines will also soon be launched worldwide by that company. Nick Stacey, VP of FSC Mobile Business, said the company sold almost one million notebooks in Europe during Q3. When asked what Siemens' contribution was to today's launch, Stacey commented on the German company's channel strength and understanding of the corporate market place. ®
