Fujitsu is releasing two ultrabooks called the LifeBook U722 and the LifeBook UH57 2. Previewed a few months ago, these two devices have sleek form factors with small bezels on their screens.
Among the two, the U772 is the better and more expensive model, with its price starting at $1,149. This ultrabook has a 14-inch screen with 1280 x 768 pixels covered edge-to-edge with glass. Inside, it has the Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 or i7 processor, which depends on the model. It has a hybrid storage capacity that combines a hard drive storage of 500 GB and a Solid State Disk cache of 32 GB that minimizes booting time as well as the time it takes to access files. Users may also get a Solid State Disk only option with a 256 GB capacity.
When compared to other ultrabook models, this is slightly heavier with its weight of 3.15 pounds. However, given that it holds a 14-inch screen, this is understandable. Its thickness meanwhile is .69 inch. Fujitsu also boasts of the device’s frame less display, however, what this really means is that the screen has an ultra thin bezel. For its ports, it carries the standard set of a full-sized HDMI, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, mini LAN, and an SD card slot.
On the other hand, the UH572 has lower specs. This ultrabook has a retail price starting from $999, which allows it to have an Ivy Bridge Intel Core i5 chip. Its display measures 13.3 inches with a 1366 × 768 resolution and offers Intel WiDi wireless display technology. It has lesser battery life as well with only 6 hours and has a thicker measurement at 0.71 inches. This ultrabook weighs 3.5 pounds. However, like the U772, this device carries a 500 GB hard and a 32 GB SSD cache. Still, there is no Solid State Disk only option for this ultrabook.
Fujitsu’s target markets for these ultrabooks are professionals and home users. To sweeten the deal, both devices carry security features anti-theft and identity protection software, which are required by Intel on all ultrabooks.
