Fujitsu goes green with the 0-watt-PC

New energy-saving PCs consume no power in standby mode

The 0-Watt-PC range can automatically wake up and download updates during pre-defined timeslots.

The 0-Watt-PC range can automatically wake up and download updates during pre-defined timeslots.

Fujitsu announced the launch of the 0-Watt-PC to its proGreen series. This energy-saving PC, announced earlier at this year's CeBIT, is now available for shipping in two versions: the Esprimo E7935 0-Watt (small form factor) and Esprimo P7935 0-Watt (microtower).

By including the 0-Watt-PC into its proGREEN selection, it is compliant with all relevant environmental standards, set by either energy labels such as the Energy Star 5.0, the Nordic Swan or the Blue Angel, as well as by EU legislation. Most of them even exceed the current legal requirements and are pretty good for energy efficiency and environmental standards.

Additionally, the ESPRIMO proGREEN selection features Intel vPro Technology which enables IT administrators to take advantage of hardware-assisted security and manageability capabilities to simplify maintenance, management, and protection of their business PCs and lower total cost of ownership.

Thanks to a patent-pending new technology, the 0-Watt-PC does not consume any power in off-mode or hibernating while still remaining administrable during a pre-configured time slot. The device is capable of going into a 0-Watt standby automatically, without someone using the hard-off switch or the off switch at the power outlet.

Should the PC need to be administered outside of usual working hours -- for example to update software -- the administrator has the option to define a time slot in which the PC automatically wakes up and is waiting for updates. Once the time slot is over, it goes back into 0-Watt standby. This way, the 0-Watt-PC completely avoids the typical "stand-by losses" already condemned by EU law which requires that electrical devices do not consume more than 1 Watt in stand-by. A PC with 0-Watt technology saves up to 60 percent more energy compared to standard technology.

Besides the 0-Watt-PC, Fujitsu's proGreen selection contains two energy efficient notebooks with the Esprimo Mobile X9515 and the Lifebook E8420 and the Celsius W370 workstation.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
