Fujitsu Lifebook U574

Those looking for touchscreen ultrabooks are spoilt for choice as manufacturers continue to flood the market with many variations. The Fujitsu Lifebook U574 is another player in this particular space and deserves a look by consumers.

It comes with a 4th generation Intel i5 processor, 8 GB of RAM and your choice of a 500 GB HDD with SSD cache or a 128/256 GB SSD. These specs are pretty standard in a lot of ultrabooks of this price range and given the speed upgrade from an HDD to an SSD, the solid state drive is definitely recommended. There is enough processing power with turbo up to 2.6 GHz and RAM to do almost anything you need it to.

It's coupled with an integrated Intel HD 4400 GPU which is able to play some older last gen games at medium settings. Newer more graphically intense games might be unplayable. The 13.3 inch touchscreen has a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and is anti-glare to prevent reflection but don't expect great visibility under sunlight as it’s just a standard display.

Fujitsu claims the battery will last up to 11 hours of mixed use, which means you don't have to worry much if you're travelling as it can last quite awhile on a single charge. This ultrabook is definitely not for everyone being at this price range but if you're looking for a solid performing device with a touchscreen, the Fujitsu Lifebook U574 deserves a look.

Deceptive. Slim and good-looking business laptops are possible nowadays. The non-glare touchscreen of Fujitsu's Lifebook U574 is rare, though. Is it only smoke and mirrors or a solid business subnotebook that meets all fundamental criteria?

Disappointing display. Fujitsu's new 14-inch business Ultrabook, the LifeBook U745, left a good impression overall. However, Fujitsu has made a mistake when selecting the display.
