Fujitsu is currently committed to making its PCs as green as possible. The company revealed that most of the machines in its business range consume less than one watt of power in standby mode, in line with new EU regulations, which come into force on January 5 2010.

The company also said that the Esprimo C/E/P5730 and E/P7935 PCs and the Celsius W370 PC also benefit from a 'low power soft off' function that reduces standby power consumption rate to 0.5W.

No details have been released about the specification of the PC or how Fujitsu Siemens is ensuring it has a power consumption of zero watt until the machine has been patented.

Fujitsu Siemens Computers will also display a new version of its Primergy TX150 S6 server at CeBIT. Fujitsu says the server that has been "optimised in terms of energy efficiency for use in small businesses" and "unites low energy consumption with high data throughput".
