Wireless Display (WiDi) Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi) is a new technology that is available on select ed Fujitsu LIFEBOOK computers. Intel® WiDi lets users enjoy and share PC content from an Intel® Core™ processor-based notebook with their big screen TV. With Intel® WiDi, you can use your big screen TV to view data and applications from your hard drive, home network, or the Internet. It’s no longer necessary for friends and families to crowd around the PC to enjoy content stored or accessed there. Although Intel® WiDi is a wireless technology, it requires a third-party display adapter in order to be used. The display adapter is attached to the TV via HDMI (preferred) or composite A/V cables.
The integrated Bluetooth feature provides wireless connectivity for wireless devices at close proximity. For example, Bluetooth can be used to wirelessly transfer/ synchronize data to and from different devices such as PDAs and cellular phones. It also communicates with peripherals such as mice, keyboards, and printers wirelessly, minimizing the constraints and clutter of cables. The typical transfer distance for a Bluetooth device is up to 30 feet. Designed to take advantage of a typical workspace or PAN (Personal Area Network), the purpose of Bluetooth is to simplify the exchange of information and interfacing of devices within a close proximity. When considering Bluetooth devices keep in mind that the system as well as the individual devices must support Bluetooth.
Anytime USB Charge
The Anytime USB Charge feature is available through certain USB 3.0 ports. Anytime USB Charge allows you to charge an external device with a USB charge connector even when the notebook is turned off. Anytime USB Charge ports can be distinguished from standard USB 3.0 ports by the small power plug icon that is adjacent to the standard USB icon on the system surface.
Note: The Anytime USB Charge feature is disabled by default. To enable the feature, go to Start menu > All Programs > Anytime USB Charge Utility and choose whether to enable the function when an AC Adapter is used or when an AC Adapter or battery is used. Note that charging a device off of the battery will quickly deplete the battery power, so you are advised to use an AC Adapter when charging an external device.

Certain LIFEBOOK notebook models have a copy of the pre-installed Factory Image loaded into a hidden partition on the hard disk drive. Having a copy of the original Factory Image available to you means that in the event of system failure, you will be able to restore it to its original state directly from the hard drive. (It is very important that you create DVD copies of your Factory Image before beginning to use your system for use in the event of hard disk failure).
BIOS and HDD Password Protection
