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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

75.5%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
