Fujitsu LifeBook U772 Ultrabook Hands-on: Better Late Than Never

Arriving fashionably late to the Ultrabook party, the Fujitsu LifeBook U772 should still make for a grand entrance. This 14-inch business-focused system, which starts at 1,149, features an Intel Core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM, and security features such as a built-in fingerprint reader and TPM. 

At 12.9 x 8.9 x 0.6- 0.69 inches and weighing 3.2 pounds (and a fraction more with a mechanical hard drive), the U770  has a 14-inch display with a standard resolution of 1366 x 768. While we wish Fujitsu had crammed more pixels in, we’re certainly appreciative of the matte finish, which limits glare. Ports include HDMI, two USB 3.0, and one USB 2.0, a mini Ethernet port, a docking connector on the bottom, and a headphone/line-out jack. 

The configuration we saw–which had a 2.0-GHz Intel Core i7-366U processor, 4GB of RAM, a 320GB 5,400-rpm hard drive and a 32GB SSD cache–costs $1,449 on Fujitsu’s site. However, the notebook starts at $1,149, which gets you a 1.6-GHz Intel Core i5-3317U processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. 

The U772′s keyboard is spacious, but we found the key travel lacking. We also didn’t love the touchpad, which felt somewhat mushy, though the final production model might be better.

Stay tuned for a full review of this business-friendly Ultrabook.

    Please follow up. I got to the end, and couldn’t find the [next page] link. Doh. Preview only.

    Fujitsu doesn’t have a big consumer following here, but I’m one of the few. I’ve never had more reliable machines, and this is currently on my shortlist (base model with SSD).

    fujitsu always seem to always lack one thing that their competitors have which make them stand out. A USP for starters , quality (design still outdated and not unique yet) and a lack of advertisement which is needed to improve thier brand image. However their concept design if it becomes a reality (http://www.yankodesign.com/2012/01/16/well-configured-life/) has massive potential to become market leader and knock apple of the top spot if it is released at the right time.
