The FMV DESKPOWER was a desktop computer that Fujitsu announced in October 1994 as a true consumer-oriented computer of the FMV series. The FMV DESKPOWER was marketed as a computer even novice users without specialized computer knowledge could start using right away. The computer was designed on an “all in one” concept, in which all the hardware (high-performance CPU, audio capability, CD-ROM drive, hard drive, floppy drive, color monitor, speakers, etc.) and software (MS-DOS 6.2/V and Windows 3.1 operating systems, word processor, games, and other useful software programs) deemed necessary for an ordinary user was supplied.
Consumers embraced the all-in-one concept, and the FMV DESKPOWER became a hit product for Fujitsu. Even today (2008), the all-in-one configuration is still the standard configuration for computers in the consumer market.
