European law mandates that such low power units become the norm by January 2010, and Fujitsu's main announcement is a follow-up to its earlier release of the zero-watt monitor.
The company said today that the first zero-watt PC, the Esprimo Green, would be available by the summer. The Esprimo Green consumes no power at all while in standby mode, but is still "administrable", according to the firm.
At Cebit, the computer maker will also show off the ultra-portable Esprimo Mobile Thin Client, which works with enterprise servers and stores its operating system in Flash memory and its data on a secure server.
Administration is simple, the company said, and can be managed through wireless LAN, Bluetooth and UMTS connections.
Fujitsu will also unveil a number of green systems and solutions for small and medium-sized businesses at the show, along with new anti-theft systems combining remote control and tracking facilities.
Anti-theft protection will be available in April 2009 as an option in the business notebooks in the Esprimo Mobile series and in the Lifebook E8420 and Lifebook T5010, according to the firm.
Fujitsu will also show off a number of security solutions at the event, including electronic payment frameworks, and the CentricStor VT archiving tool, which the firm claims is the first virtual magnetic tape solution that stores business data intelligently and automatically on hard disk or magnetic tape, according to given criteria.
