Fujitsu GRANNOTE laptop for Japanese mature adults around 60 years announced
Fujitsu today announced the introduction of its new GRANNOTE brand personal computer (LIFEBOOK AH90/P), available exclusively in Japan for active, mature adults, primarily around 60 years of age. The GRANNOTE brand is built around the concept of a refined computer that will enrich the lifestyles of sophisticated consumers who place a premium on design and ease of use. The model has a clean design that resonates with mature sensibilities: a keyboard with highly legible keycaps and outstanding tactile action, a clear and vivid display, and automatic screen color and backlight calibration to match ambient conditions.
For fast processing and advanced graphics performance, GRANNOTE comes with the 4th generation Intel Core i7-4500U processor, along with approximately 1-TB hard drives and 8 GB of memory, giving these machines the power to edit high-definition video or execute multiple tasks simultaneously. With box-type speakers developed in collaboration with Pioneer and a slot-loading BDXL-compatible Blu-Ray drive, GRANNOTE delivers solid performance, enabling users to enjoy high-quality video and audio.
GRANNOTE marks the first time that the Human Centric Engine, now driving Fujitsu smartphones, makes an appearance in a personal computer. This ensures optimal usability tailored to personal and ambient conditions. For hearing, users are aided with Awaseru Voice, which automatically adjusts the volume levels of high-frequency sounds depending on the age that users had entered previously. By selectively adjusting high-frequency sounds that become harder to hear as one ages, spoken words in movies, videos, and live online chats all become significantly easier to comprehend.
With a simple, elegant black-based color scheme that will retain its new feel, and a surface around the keyboard area that resembles a single sheet of glass, GRANNOTE features a restrained, attractive design that suits mature tastes. The new model is set to go on sale in Japan on February 13. Price to be announced later.
