On the bright side, there are a lot of security and privacy features on this laptop, including an optional IR face recognition system, a physical camera shutter, and the PalmSecure system. Instead of providing its users with the orthodox fingerprint reader experience, Fujitsu is offering their in-house technology of scanning your palm’s vein pattern, unique for each and every person. It is astonishing to see that they have implemented it in a laptop (for some years now), considering it is mainly found in building entrances.

Fujitsu’s specialty these days has been the production of ultra-secure business notebooks. They embed technologies like PalmSecure, which is being widely used in many different levels of corporate authorization units. Therefore, it is natural to embed the technology inside a notebook, provided that the sensor is small enough. They also offer some of their laptops with Intel’s vPro processors, and one of them is the LifeBook U9310X. It is a convertible with extremely low weight which is actually compliant with the MIL-STD-810G standard. As far as the design is concerned, this laptop is not too different from its predecessor, the LifeBook U939X. The chassis is made out of magnesium and weighs 1,050 grams. The weight almost feels non-existent when lifted, proving the fact that the laptop is indeed quite light. While it is undeniable that its profile is not the thinnest out there, 16.9mm is still remarkable on a convertible. On top of that, it should be highly noted that the base is very prone to twists and, under too much pressure, cracking noises tend to appear. There is definitely a need to handle with care here.
Apart from that, it is worth noting that the lid is as flexible as a mouse pad, which leads to the fact that it restrains single-hand operation. Additionally, when the device is being opened, the lid lifts the backside of the base to ensure more airflow to the fan. There is also a Full-HD camera and a duo of IR sensors meant for the face recognition system. The camera and the sensors are safely housed within the huge top bezel of the LifeBook. The Fujitsu LifeBook U9310X actually comes with two cameras. The other 5MP camera is situated at the base, along with a dedicated notes shortcut button.
In terms of the keyboard, the overall layout is good, but the problem is the inconsistency between the keys. While some of the keys have clicky feedback, others seem to be too mushy. This definitely makes the overall typing experience uncomfortable. The touchpad, with its too short dedicated keys, is also a bit too small for a Windows machine. As for connectivity, the notebook has been equipped with two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 connectors, an HDMI connector, a USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) port, an audio jack, and a Smart card reader on the left. On the right side, there is a transformer RJ-45 connector, another USB Type-A 3.1 (Gen. 1) port, an SD-card reader and an optional SIM card tray. In terms of its display, this laptop comes with a Full-HD IPS touchscreen panel, the Sharp LQ133M1JW48 (SHP14F5). As for the processor, it carries the Intel Core i7-10610U CPU and Intel UHD Graphics as the GPU. The laptop also has been equipped with a 50Wh battery. Overall, it is a great laptop to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

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.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i7-10610U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (unverified) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the similar Core i7-10510U, the 10610U supports vPro.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
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.

80%: 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.
