Fujitsu Esprimo X AIO boasts UC featuresBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 13 March 2014 | Categories: news
Fujitsu has released two new all-in-one (AIO) X-line desktop PCs, the Esprimo X923 and X923-T, which feature fully integrated support for the Unified Communications and Collaboration (UC&C) environments and improved power saving technology.
Unified communications and collaboration essentially means the integration of real-time communication services (instant messaging, video conferencing and phone calls) with non real-time communication (e-mail services, voicemail and SMS) in an effort to provide a more holistic and fully engaging user experience.
Fujitsu believes it has gotten closer to this ideal, with the X923 and X923-T incorporating speakers in the units’ base, as well as a headset and handset to offer users a functional interface.
Both Esprimo X models sport 23” IPS (1920x1080) displays and are available in a range of Intel Core i5 and i7 variants, with the top specced version of each model clocked at 2.2 GHz. The units are also supported up to 16 GB of RAM (across all models) and run Windows 7 or 8, depending on customer request. The defining difference between the two models is that the X923-T is touch enabled while the standard X923 is not.
Fujitsu has also fitted the X models with a plethora of connections, including six USB 3.0, located on the rear and left side panels, along with a DVI, VGA and ethernet port as well as two Kensington Lock mechanisms.
Another aspect that Fujitsu is talking up, is the Esprimo X’s power saving technology, dubbed Low Power Active Mode (LPAM). In this mode, the all-in-one PC’s will draw just enough power to perform critical background tasks and still remain active for any incoming communications. According to Fujitsu, while running Windows 8.1 Pro, the LPAM mode uses 5 watts per hour less than its always on mode, although the net gains for this in the long run are yet to be disclosed.
Pricing and availability for both models is yet to be confirmed, but if Fujitsu can reach an attractive price point for SA consumers, it may just have a winner on its hands.
