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.
High performance, Entry level gaming graphics
The Fujitsu Lifebook NH751 (starting at 999 euros) in the Core i7-2630QM, 1500 GB hard disk memory (2x 750 GB) and 17.3 inch WUXGA TFT (1920x1080) configuration is suitable for ambitioned home users, but not for gamers. Movie fans will be pleased about the Full HD screen's high contrasts, will enjoy the subwoofer basses and can save their movie collection on a hard disk capacity of 1.5 terabyte.
Solid Performance, Blu-ray Compatible
The LifeBook NH751 is a big departure from Fujitsu's typical laptop offerings. It mixes performance and media features that are geared towards consumers rather than corporations. This is a great change for consumers and the high level of performance from the system and Blu-ray are certainly welcome. The problem is that Fujitsu has lowered the warranty to just one year unlike three years for most of their other laptops.
Decent entertainment machine
Still, if it is of any consolation, the NH751 does make for a rather decent entertainment machine suitable for use in movie playback, especially if one takes into account that the NH751 boasts various perks not often found on most conventional notebooks, such as its 17-inch full HD display, a Blu-ray drive and a 5.1 speaker system.
