Reviews for the Fujitsu LifeBook UH900

60% Notebook Review: Fujitsu LifeBook UH900

Looking at a picture of the Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 on a bare table, you'd think it an odd contender in the notebook wars: What's with that relatively small screen centered in a big black bezel? Why is the keyboard layout so funky? Why are the USB ports on the front edge instead of the side or rear? How about it, Fujitsu? Add an inch, lose the touch screen, stretch the battery, say $750? We'd buy one. Maybe two, to keep one in the car.

Review: Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 (LOOX U/G90)
Source: Pocketables English
Despite its abysmal battery life, useless multitouch, and toy-like build quality, there's something about the Japanese version of the Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 that makes it really enjoyable to use. Whether it's the 2.0GHz Intel Atom processor, built-in WiMAX, touch-typable keyboard, excellent mouse controls, great performance, zippy SSD, or a combination of all those elements, I find it hard to put the elongated clamshell down.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH900 is a little marvel when it comes to PC miniaturisation, but it's too small and cramped to use effectively. It's a device for consuming media rather than creating - it's very difficult to type on its little keyboard or use its undersized touchscreen. However, we do like the fact that it has an integrated 3.5G modem that can be used with the carrier of your choice.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 500: Integrated (onboard) graphics chip on the UL11L, US15L, and US15W chipsets with a licensed PowerVR SGX core. DirectX 10.1 support but because of low clock rates (100-200 MHz UL11L - US15) and only 4 shaders not suited for 3D games. The integrated video decoder accelerates the playback of HD videos (MPEG2, VC-1, AVC).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


Z530:

Power saving version of the Atom N270 with additional Virtualization Support and more power saving techniques. The performance is equal to the N270 and therefore only suited for basic tasks.

5.6":

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

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.

0.5 kg:

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.


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".

Fujitsu is a medium-sized laptop manufacturer, which did not belong to the global Top 10 in the last years. In the smartphone sector, Fujitsu does hardly play any role. The ratings are above-average in the reviews (as of 2016).


56.67%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
