Good case, Good mobility, Very good display with high pen accuracy
Fujitsu created a very successful convertible with the LifeBook T902. A wide selection of ports, above-average upgrade options and typical business features laid the necessary foundation. These core characteristics are complemented with the good performance of the base model and the good build quality in general.
Bright, non-glare display, Long battery life
The Fujitsu Lifebook S792 is a thin and light, very mobile notebook for business travelers. The long battery life and the bright display allow the user to venture outside and away from any outlets. The already very decent run times can be increased via a modular bay battery. Unfortunately, a few things are amiss - Fujitsu could definitely improve the notebook and its chassis by outfitting it with a sturdier display lid.
Slim, rigid magnesium chassis
Perhaps you experienced similar thoughts while reading this review as we did during the test. First anticipation, because of the extremely attractive, slim and lightweight, yet very stable magnesium chassis. Then the delight about how much hardware finds room in the very tight space - including the 14-inch screen and the UMTS module.
Terrible keyboard, Poor screen
The Fujitsu U772 has an elegant design, solid build quality, excellent overall performance and plenty of ports. I'm impressed by the business-friendly features such as the fingerprint reader and Intel vPro support. The U772's usability however is crippled by the horrid keyboard design and low quality display.
Keyboard is simply too hard to type on
The ingredients are there for the Fujitsu Lifebook U772 to be a class-leading Ultrabook. It has all the right features, an impressively slim and light design, as well as good looks. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide a good overall user experience. Its keyboard is simply too hard to type on, its touchpad could be better, its screen's vertical viewing angles are too narrow for a premium Ultrabook, and it can be a noisy Ultrabook when its CPU is put to work.
Aggressive, attractive design
Despite admirable performance and good battery life, we can't, in good conscience, recommend the U772. The poor screen and keyboard prevents us. Then there's the kicker - the whole package costs AU$2488. Sure, it's business focused with VPro, a thumb scanner, TPM and even a WWAN module inside for 3G connectivity, but against Bring Your Own Device it doesn't stand a chance, and IT managers would be better off going for a stock-standard thick Lenovo for usability, or opting for one of Dell's...
Very slim and elegant design
The Fujitsu LifeBook U772 is one of the more interesting and unique looking Ultrabooks on the market. It's also one of the thinnest and lightest without feeling a tad flimsy like the also light and skinny Toshiba Portege Z835 and Z935. The U772 will likely appeal to business users with its strong security features and port replicator, but consumers may find the design and excellent build quality appealing. Our only complaints?
Precise touchscreen, Good battery life
The Lifebook T901 is an improved version of the Lifebook T900. Fujitsu has found the right balance between notebook and tablet PC. The case of the device is very sturdy, and the new hardware of the device can provide high performance. The latest ports, such as USB 3.0, are also available. The laptop is stocked up with communication modules ranging from LAN, WLAN, Bluetooth as well as UMTS. A fast 128 GB SSD and 4 GB DDR3 RAM ensure lightning-fast use.
Bright, Antiglare Coated Display
Fujitsu's LifeBook P701 falters from being a good laptop because it is still stuck in the older corporate computer mindset. It comes with half the RAM and a third of storage space of the modern laptop PC. Add to this the lack of modern high speed peripheral ports and you are stuck relying on your limited resources with limited external expansion options. At least the display offers a bright spot with antiglare coating and nice color.
Fantastic battery life, Matt screen stops reflections
Fujitsu has focused on what a high-end user would want from an ultra-portable - great battery life, a comfortable keyboard and enough connectivity to provide a wealth of options.
It won't take the crown from the likes of the Sony VAIO VPC-Z13M9E/B or the Apple MacBook Air, but at half the price, we're not complaining.
Good range of ports for the price
The Fujitsu LifeBook P701 impresses with its good screen, sterling performance and sturdy build quality. A number of problems mean it fails to live up to its price tag though -- the keyboard isn't great, it lacks a DVD drive and its battery life could be much better.
Good performance for a very compact Notebook
The Fujitsu Lifebook P701 is small and nicely made. We'd have liked a higher screen resolution and could live without the ScrollWheel - but overall, if you need something very portable, it could suit.
