There are two ways of approaching your notebook
investment. One is to purchase a low cost unit, but
the savings are generally eaten up by the maintenance
costs and the hassle of dealing with a poorly
constructed substandard notebook. On the other
hand, high-quality units may cost a little more, but
the maintenance costs are lower because the reliability
is significantly higher. What if you could purchase
a high-quality notebook at a reasonable price? The
best of both worlds just became a reality with the
affordable LifeBook® AH550 notebook.
The old adage, “you get what you pay for” certainly
applies in the highly competitive world of notebook
computers. Now the upfront costs of top quality
notebooks just became less. Designed, engineered,
and manufactured in Japan (leader in quality and
reliability) the Fujitsu AH550 LifeBook notebook
provides you an easy way to cut costs without
cutting performance or reliability.
Performance and Features
With a choice of the Intel® Core™ i3 or i5 processor,
the Fujitsu AH550 LifeBook notebook provides all the
computing power you will need, even for the most
demanding applications. The new 2010 Intel® Core™
processor family was developed to provide smart
energy efficiency that automatically delivers extra
performance when you need it most and reduce power
consumption when less power is needed.
The Fujitsu AH550 LifeBook, comes with a Dual-Layer,
Multi-format DVD writer optical drive. The Dual-layer
DVD-R or RW technology lets you record up to 8.5
GB of data on a single disc. This nearly doubles the
standard DVD capacity of 4.7 GB.
The gesture enabled touchpad adds a whole new
dimension in going through documents. Scrolling,
zooming and sorting documents and images is actually
fun. With NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics, you will be
treated to unparalleled performance, crisp photos, highdefinition video playback, and ultra-realistic games. The
HDMI port allows you to play your DVDs on compatible flat screen televisions—bigger is always better.
The separate 10-key keypad is what having a full size
keyboard is all about. It makes crunching numbers and
in some cases gaming much faster and easier.
Flexible Connectivity
The built-in Ethernet LAN, provides a way to easily connect to your office network and the Internet at home or
at work. For wireless connectivity, the Atheros XSPAN®
BGN (802.11BGN) wireless offers you a seamless and
flexible way to stay in touch using transfer rates as
high as 108 Mbps. The high resolution 2 mega-pixel
webcam adds a fun (and very useful) dimension to
staying in touch with family, friends, and business
associates. With Bluetooth technology you will be able
to wirelessly connect to other Bluetooth devices such as
cell phones, headphones, or speakers cutting down on
workspace clutter.
Stable and Reliable
The LifeBook AH550 delivers all the key features that
have contributed to Fujitsu LifeBook notebooks being
named some of the most reliable in the industry. The
new LifeBook AH550 notebook features a strong
exterior, highly durable hinges, and a spill-resistant
keyboard. It also comes with an accessible dust filter
for easy user cleaning. This allows maximum airflow to
keep your notebook running at peak efficiency.
In a time when most PCs are assembled by third-party
vendors, Fujitsu takes pride in its own world-class design, rigorous testing, and manufacturing capabilities.
Fujitsu provides extremely high quality mobile computers with one of the lowest failure rates in the industry.
