[] Fujitsu Launches New U772 and UH572 Ultrabooks

Fujitsu isn’t one of the companies we at AnandTech usually encounter in the realm of laptops; for whatever reason, their presence in the US market is decidedly limited. Nevertheless, they sent us news letting us know of their two latest Ultrabooks, the 13.3” Lifebook UH572 and the 14” Lifebook U772. The specs follow the familiar pattern, which we’ll cover in the table below, with a few exceptions.

The biggest differentiator is that Fujitsu’s Lifebook offerings generally target the business sector more than the consumer market, and Fujitsu calls these “commercial Ultrabooks”. That should mean build quality is generally higher, though we haven’t handled them so we can’t say for certain. You also get a fingerprint scanner as part of the package on the U772, and both models support port replicators. For now, the UH572 is only available in one configuration while the U772 is a user configurable (with a lower priced preconfigured model due in late June).

Note: 0.61”/15.5mm without feet Weight 3.5 lbs (1.59kg) 3.15 lbs (1.43kg) with SSD
(3.18 lbs/1.45kg with HDD) Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium 32/64-bit Windows 7 Professional 32/64-bit Pricing $999 MSRP Configurable starting at $1299
Preconfigured MSRP $1149 (late June) Considering both models come from the same OEM, some of the differences between the two offerings are quite odd. The UH572 is a 13.3”-screen chassis while the U772 is a 14”-screen chassis, and yet the dimensions of the U772 are only 0.15” wider while being 0.36” shallower and slightly thinner. The U772 also weighs 10% less when equipped with an SSD. Other differences include the OS, flash memory support, the wireless chipset, the lack of mini LAN and the fingerprint scanner on the UH572, and the memory setup (e.g. onboard vs. SO-DIMM). Of course, there’s a reason for all of that, as the UH572 starts at $999 while the least expensive configuration of the U772 starts at $1149. Images of the two Ultrabooks are in the gallery below, along with some (apparently incorrect on the UH572, as they show a fingerprint scanner and mini LAN) schematics drawings.
