Fujitsu's latest series of Lifebooks includes "the world's lightest convertible with a pen"
The FHD 13.3-inch U9310 and U9310X may be the flagships of the new Fujitsu Lifebook series; however, its other models have their advantages too, particularly the U7310 with its inbuilt ePrivacy Filter to potentially enhance its data security, as well as a physical webcam shutter. On that note, it also shares an extensive raft of hardware-based authentication features with the top-end models.
They are headlined by Fujitsu's PalmSecure technology, and are augmented further by an IR camera, a smart card reader and a fingerprint sensor per new notebook. They also feature connectivity that includes Wi-Fi 6 and global Cat-9 4G/LTE thanks to eSIM compatibility.
The 3 new Lifebooks also support Thunderbolt 3, as well as 10th-gen core Intel silicon up to the core i7-10610U processor and 256GB-1TB SSDs with Intel Optane. They also accommodate LPDDR3 (2.133MHz) RAM up to 16GB - except for the U7310, which can max out to 40GB. Then again, at about 1.17kg, this SKU outweighs the other 2 by quite a bit.
The U9310 weighs only 0.916kg, whereas at 1.015kg, Fujitsu asserts that the U9310X is the lightest in its class. It has a 360-degree hinge and also comes with a stylus. It may also stand out among business-grade convertibles with a backlit keyboard and black or red colorways.
These new U9-, U9X- and U7-line Lifebooks are available from now on the OEM's website and from its selected dealers, and start at €899 (~US$997).
