Fujitsu’s New Ultra-Mobile LIFEBOOK U7 Family Leaves No Business Requirement Unfulfilled


In a digitalized and hyper-connected world, customers demand individual IT solutions. Fujitsu meets this challenge with its innovative new notebook family LIFEBOOK U7. Three new models address different user demands and combine a thin and stylish design with the latest technology features on the market.

The new LIFEBOOK U7 series are the ultra-mobile stars within Fujitsu's lineup of business notebooks. Although the new models are extremely compact, lightweight and elegant they make no compromises in terms of business usability and connectivity.

The LIFEBOOK U7 notebook family offers tailor-made solutions for three different mobile user profiles: The 12.5-inch model LIFEBOOK U727 weighs only 1.3 kg and is targeted at users who are always on the move. This ultra-portable screen size is a first in Fujitsu's mobile product line. The LIFEBOOK U747 offers a 14.0-inch display, weighs 1.5 kg and addresses users who look for the optimum balance between mobility for business trips and a full day of ergonomic mobile working. And the LIFEBOOK U757 features a bigger 15.6-inch screen, weighs only 1.8 kg and is targeted at users who chose more screen estate over maximum mobility as they primarily work in stationary environments.

All three family members share state-of-the-art characteristics like their ultrathin cases that are only 19 mm thick. They are based on the very latest, 7th generation Intel® Core™ processor family and support modern, high-performance mobile technology like a USB Type C port and up to 32 GB of fast DDR4 memory. High-capacity lithium polymer batteries allow for runtimes of up to 10 hours, and a range of convenient AC adapters can quickly recharge the batteries.

When purchasers strive for the highest possible performance, available mass storage options include superfast PCIe SSDs, with a range of SATA-based SSDs and conventional hard disks available as lower-priced, but still powerful alternatives. The FUJITSU U7 family can be ordered with either Windows 10 Home or Pro, offering a versatile choice of up-to-date operating systems.

Flexible Connectivity Designed with Practical Use in Mind
The LIFEBOOK U7 series takes full advantage of the benefits offered by the new USB Type C connector. This connector supports charging and data communications at the same time via only one cable for an optional USB Type-C port replicator. However, as business users cannot be expected to change their peripherals at once, the new versatile USB Type C interface is accompanied by two USB Type-A ports. These ports provide connectivity for conventional USB peripherals like USB data sticks or USB-based storage and printers. In order to provide additional benefits, one of the Type A ports features the anytime charge functionality, allowing power distribution to devices like smartphones even when the notebook is in sleep mode.


Lightweight, elegant, powerful and versatile: the new FUJITSU LIFEBOOK U7 series

Designed with practical everyday use in mind, despite their thin cases, all three models feature full-size interface connectors like Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort and VGA. This allows business users to immediately connect to existing infrastructure and projection systems without the need for handling cumbersome adaptors. The powerful on-board graphics can drive up to three displays with resolutions of up to 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) with display ports. Dualband WiFi (802.11n/11ac) and Bluetooth 4.1 provide extensive wireless connectivity. In the 15.6-inch model LIFEBOOK U757, purchasers can choose to connect their display either via a DisplayPort or a HDMI connector.

Many Options for Optimum Efficiency
Like all of Fujitsu's LIFEBOOK offerings, the U7 series holds a wide range of customization options, ranging from different storage configurations to optional 4G mobile connectivity and several LCD display types, including HD and Full HD options as well as a full HD touch display if favored. The 15.6-inch LIFEBOOK U757 even supports an optional UHD display (3840 x 2160 pixels). All available display types are anti-glare coated.

Furthermore, a broad choice of optional security features like fingerprint or palm vein sensor and a SmartCard reader can be configured according to company needs, enhancing access and data security.

Two optional digital array microphones and an optional HD webcam make the LIFEBOOK U7 series an excellent choice for audio/video conferencing using platforms like Microsoft's Skype for Business (formerly Lync). A combo audio port for headphone and microphone is standard on all configurations.

Additional connectivity can be achieved with the two optional port replicator choices. Customers can select between the classic or the new USB Type-C port replicator. Both offer a big variety of additional interfaces to meet the needs of modern and convenient workplace scenarios.

Unlimited Serviceability
Unlike competitors, who achieve compact designs only by sealing off all internal components, LIFEBOOK U7 allows service access to all critical components like battery, memory, mass storage and the 4G modem via service doors. Therefore customer's IT departments can easily service or update these elements as required.

With the combination of an elegant and lightweight design, three sizes targeted at different user profiles, high-performance state-of-the-art mobile technology, a broad range of configurable options as well as versatile provisions for service and manageability, the new Fujitsu LIFEBOOK U7 series is clearly the best choice for modern mobile business computing.
