Fujitsu LifeBook U772 Review

Article via LAPTOP Mag.

The Verdict: The 14-inch Fujitsu LifeBook U772 incorporates business-friendly features in a fast and long-lasting Ultrabook.

While most Ultrabooks are aimed at consumers, Fujitsu is making sure business users are covered, too. The $1,149 Fujitsu LifeBook U772 takes features such as an Ivy Bridge processor and an SSD and combines them with a fingerprint scanner, a SIM card slot and a docking connector. Add to that a 14-inch display in an attractive 13-inch chassis and all-day battery life, and you’ve got yourself a potent mix. Is this the ideal Ultrabook for road warriors?

Design
With its sturdy silver magnesium alloy and distinctive chrome logo smack dab in the center, the LifeBook U772 is sort of a cross between the MacBook Air and the Sony VAIO T Series 13. And that’s a good thing. The lid repels fingerprints, and we like that the small lip along the front makes the machine easy to open.

Ultrabooks – Very Possibly the Next True Killer Mobile Devices

Article via Mobile Enterprise.

When the infamous shark from the original Jaws first made its appearance, the town in which the shark appeared was unable to comprehend what exactly the town was up against. A massive killer with amazing resilience is certainly an apt description – and one that Intel no doubt hopes will become an apt description as well for its new Ultrabook concept.

When it comes down to information technology hardware tools the enterprise world, at least as far as its collective workforce is concerned, has never had it so good. From an enormous range of BYOD smartphones to the iPad (and a collection of other much less deployed tablets), the enterprise workforce has had lots of smart mobile device choice become the norm for ways to drive a more mobile and more nimble way of working. The laptop, for the most part the one de facto and ubiquitous piece of enterprise-supplied hardware hasn’t, however, truly participated in this mobile-driven explosion of choices – and could conceivably become obsolete over time.

Ultrabooks, Tablets and the Space Between

Article via TechNewsWorld

Ultrabooks may be targeting part of the tablet market, but using a tablet is a different experience from using a thin notebook computer. Meanwhile, convertible and hybrid form factors are gaining traction, and accessories can be used to add full-sized keyboards to tablet computers. Is there a form factor on which the mobile computer market is converging?

The stage is set for a new battle of mobile form factors. The winner could set a new non-desktop standard for consumers and office workers looking for a better alternative to bulky laptops.

Lighter, thinner and more powerful are the key factors guiding the designs of tablets, convertibles, hybrids and Ultrabooks. All four form factors challenge the range of sizes found in traditional notebook computers.

The netbook is perhaps a casualty of the last round of form factor skirmishing. Those undersized and, to a large extent, underpowered tinybooks just never grabbed enough consumer favor to compete with the iPad and non-Apple wanna-be devices sans keyboards.
