Fujitsu announces the Lifebook UH572 ultrabook at CeBIT
Japan-based computer manufacturer Fujitsu is the next company to announce a new ultrabook. At the 2012 CeBIT show, which is currently taking place in Hannover, the maker demonstrated a thin and light laptop, dubbed UH572 that is expected to hit the stores on the Old Continent sometime in July with a starting price of €699.
Reportedly, this subnotebook weighs just 1.6kg and will pack at launch a choice of low-voltage Ivy Bridge (22nm technology) central processing units. According to Notebook Italia, the UH572 model exhibited in Germany was driven by a 1.7GHz third generation Intel CPU with a maximum thermal design power (TDP) of 17W. Furthermore, Fujitsu’s latest device has a thickness of 0.63-in (about 16mm) and sports a high definition LCD widescreen display that measures 13.3-inches in diagonal.
The lightweight portable computer presumably comes with 4GB of DDR3 operating memory, a 320GB mechanical hard drive (there is also an SSD option) and a front-facing web camera for video calls. Connectivity features include one USB 2.0 and a couple of USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI interface, a SIM card slot for 3G accompanied by an SD card slot for expanding the storage capacity, Wireless LAN and Bluetooth radios.
In terms of design, the UH572 will supposedly be available in red or silver magnesium-alloy chassis; the interior is black (keyboard, touchpad) with blue LEDs.
