Fujitsu launched the Lifebook U938 back in January this year, but this was not a worldwide release, as it was just localized for Japan. The good news is that the enterprise-oriented Lifebook U938 was just announced to make its way to the North American countries later this month.

The 13-inch U938 ultrabook weighs less than 1.8 lbs and has an overall thickness of 0.6-inch. Processor options include the i5-8250U/i5-8350U/i7-8650U CPUs coupled with either 12 GB or 20 GB of DDR4 RAM (1 DIMM slot + 4 GB onboard). The storage options are very diversified, and users can opt to include SATA III M.2 SSDs with 256/512 GB capacities (optional OPAL cables) or NVMe SSDs with 256/512 GB capacities. All versions come preinstalled with Windows 10 Pro.

Users can also choose among a glossy FHD IPS touch display and a slightly brighter non-glare IPS display. The aforementioned CPUs integrate Intel’s UHD Graphics 620 GPUs.

Other specs include:
•    HD webcam
•    Stereo speakers + Realtek ALC255 audio codec
•    Dual array mics
•    Optional LTE cat. 6 modem
•    Wi-fi + Bluetooth 4.2 + GbE
•    Fingerprint sensor + palm vein sensor
•    Connectors: mic in + headphone out, 2 x USB 3.0 Type-A (1x for charging), 1x USB 3.1 Type-C, 1 x HDMI, GbE jack, SIM card slot, SD card reader, SmartCard reader

There are a few battery options, which can add to the total weight of the notebook:
•    2 cell, 25 Whr battery + non-touch display – 1.76 pounds and 7 hours battery life
•    4 cell, 50 Whr battery + non-touch display – 2.03 pounds and 13 hours battery life
•    4 cell, 50 Whr battery + touchscreen display – 2.09 pounds and 9 hours battery life

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
