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.

60% Fujitsu Lifebook E743 Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
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.

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

3340M: Fast Ivy-Bridge-based dual-core, includes HD 4000 Graphics, core clock 2.7 - 3.4 GHz» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

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.

1.8 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


Fujitsu: Fujitsu, founded 1935, is a Japanese company specializing in semiconductors, air conditioners, computers (supercomputers, personal computers, servers), telecommunications, and services, and is headquartered in Tokyo. Fujitsu employs around 160,000 people and has 500 subsidiary companies. The partnership with Siemens AG was established in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers, one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".


75.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
