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.

Fujitsu Lifebook U939X review – business grade device with a ton of features at 1 kg
Source: Laptop Media English
One last thing – the fan of the Lifebook U939X spins up almost every time you start copying files or installing a program, which can be a little distracting when you’re in a meeting. However, we can forgive it since it’s just 16.9 mm thick and has tons of features like dual Thunderbolt connection and LTE connectivity – something rarely seen on a laptop today.

Comment

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).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

Intel HD Graphics 5500: Integrated graphics card (GT2) in the Core processors of the Broadwell U-series (15 W TDP). 

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

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core i5:

4300U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.9 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.9 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

4200U:

Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 2.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

5300U: Broadwell-based ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor for notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 5500 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.

i5-8365U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process) with vPro support. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 4.1 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-8665U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.9 and 4.8 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1 kg:

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.

1.7 kg:

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


85.48%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
