Reviews for the Fujitsu LifeBook E743
If you're into swapping around accessories and having a multitude of peripherals at your disposal, the E743 is an attractive laptop. It's certainly a team player, and a welcome indication of the direction vendors are travelling in when attempting to make notebooks as attractive as their in vogue Ultrabook counterparts.

Overall, we found that the Lifebook E743 appears to have been carefully designed for its target business market. It may not be as exciting as the latest super-thin ultrabooks, but it ticks all the right boxes for corporate buyers, and feels sturdy enough to last. The commonality of hardware across the whole Lifebook E Line should also appeal to IT departments, offering them the opportunity to standardise on drivers and peripherals across their laptop fleet.

When corporate bosses go PC shopping for their road warriors, they need to know: Are the laptops light and easy to carry? Like Tony Soprano, Fujitsu's latest little notebook is well connected—but not everyone will want to do business with it. A demanding keyboard and a few ill-fitting components mar this otherwise strong effort.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
