Fujitsu launches on the Japanese market a laptop powered by clean wind energy called FMV-BIBLO LOOX U/C50NA. Thanks to this eco-friendly laptop, the carbon emissions will be reduced significantly ( up to 18 kilograms in its total life span). The laptop is one of the smallest in size, with a 5.6- inch screen that folds back on itself into a tablet PC-like form factor and swivel around.
Like other laptops, it runs on an Intel Atom Processor, includes 1GB of memory, built-in cellular modem card in some models and up to a 120GB hard disk. Meantime, it will be available in the Japanese market only, probably in maximum one year it will be ready for markets outside of Japan. Fujitsu will purchase a Green Power Certificate equivalent to the total electricity the PC will consume in the course of its operating lifespan. Each model will have wind power credits, provided by Japan Natural Energy Co. This computer will be available at Fujitsu’s Web Mart online store for a price of $1,160 (¥113,800).
