Fujitsu launches the LifeBook LH772 notebook with Ivy Bridge processor
The Tokyo-headquartered PC manufacturer Fujitsu has reportedly unveiled a new LifeBook portable computer, which is also the company’s first device to incorporate Intel’s latest mobile platform. “Symphony at your fingertips” is how the maker describes the LH772 notebook that apparently features a design inspired by the Takumi philosophy.
Fujitsu claims their new laptop delivers a Zen-like “rounded profile” that is focused on quality but also offers simplicity. Among other things, users will be provided with leveled palm rest, a chic-let, spill-resistant keyboard (with dichromatic keys), circular scroll wheel and an “intelligent” touchpad.
Lim Teck Sin, who is VP of Product Marketing and Engineering at Fujitsu PC Asia Pacific was quoted as saying: “Fujitsu stays dedicated to our Japanese roots and the Takumi philosophy with the new LIFEBOOK LH772, which is the perfect epitome of style and function,” … “We endeavour to keep our ‘Made in Japan’ promise of premium quality and will continue to deliver great surprises and exciting products to our customers in 2012.”
Specs-wise, the LH772 is equipped with a third generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i7-3612QM central processing unit that houses four cores (8 threads) operating at a frequency of 2.1GHz (up to 3.1GHz with Turbo Boost) and the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics card that we recently reviewed. Moreover, this new LifeBook system sports a 14-inch SuperFine LED-backlit 200nits widescreen panel of HD native resolution (1366-by-768 pixels) and a discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M GPU (Kepler architecture; 2GB DDR3 VRAM).
Under the hood, one can further find 2-to 8GB of on-board memory, up to 1TB HDD, a Blu-ray Burner, Onkyo Box Speakers with DTS UltraPC II Plus sound, a 6-cell 5800mAh battery that has an autonomy period of up to 6 hours, Wireless LAN and Bluetooth 4.0 radios.
Other features supposedly include four USB 3.0 ports, HDMI interface, HDA in/out, an RF fingerprint sensor, Windows 7 Professional OS and a 720p web camera for video conferencing.
Fujitsu has also announced in a press release that the LH532 model that he manufacturer introduced last month will be getting an Ivy Bridge (Core i7) upgrade.
