Fujitsu has launched two Ultrabooks – Lifebook U772 and Lifebook UH572. As per an official statement, the new Ultrabooks combine access to the latest mobile computing technology with the power and connectivity to support all-day mobile working. Fujitsu claims to be the first vendor to ship a new-generation Ultrabook with business class, enterprise-standard features such as Intel vPro technology. It also offers mobile security with features such as a fingerprint sensor and full disk encryption (FDE) SSDs.
“With the industry’s first business Ultrabooks we have combined the best of today’s mobile computing technology with the essential security, manageability and connectivity features required by business. Fujitsu’s Ultrabooks add a new offering to our broad LIFEBOOK family and prove that you can have all your critical features innovated in a compelling, ultra-slim mobile computing device,” commented Alok Sharma, Country Manager, Workplace Systems, Fujitsu India.
Fujitsu Lifebook U772
The new flagship Fujitsu Lifebook U772 Ultrabook is designed to appeal to employees who are now able to choose their own computer because of “Bring Your Own Device” initiatives in the corporate workplace.
The company adds that the Lifebook U772 combines the portability and almost instant boot up time of a tablet with the power and usability of a traditional notebook, giving business users the best of both worlds. The Ultrabook comes with an optional port replicator, which provides easy docking and connection to the corporate network and peripherals.
The 14-inch Lifebook U772 is less than 16mm thin and weighs 1.4kg. It comes with a red or silver shell and a frameless display. The Lifebook U772 notebook is secured by Advanced Theft Protection technology with Intel Anti-Theft and Absolute Computrace features, making it possible to remotely locate a lost or stolen device, and to copy or delete data remotely, adds Fujitsu.
The Lifebook U772 offers optional built-in 3G/ UMTS or 4G/ LTE support to guarantee mobile connectivity even when outside the range of Wi-Fi hotspots, and a strong magnesium shell, which the company claims makes it tough enough to survive the daily knocks from being carried around in a handbag or backpack. It also features an Anytime USB Charge functionality, because of which there is no need to leave a Fujitsu Ultrabook running overnight just to power-up mobile devices such as smartphones. Charging via USB ports is possible even when the notebook is switched off or in standby mode. The prices start from Rs 75,900.
For budget-conscious buyers, Fujitsu has introduced the Lifebook UH572. A 13.3-inch model, it is available immediately with a strong and light aluminium shell in red or silver. The Lifebook UH572 is widely available via channel partners. It is positioned in the Advanced class, adds the company.
