Summary: Big screen, compact laptop. With its new Lifebook U772, Fujitsu launches a 15.6 mm (0.6 inches) thin ultrabook in a 13-inch case on the market. A highlight is the 14-inch screen installed in the chassis. Our review reveals whether these very promising components make a good ultrabook.
Pros: Slim, rigid magnesium chassis, Low weight, 14" screen in a 13" size, Good energy efficiency and battery life, Numerous communication standards, Security features, Excellent system performance, The magnesium chassis that is rigid despite its slim, almost fragile design. The measured as well as perceived system performance is also beyond doubt.
Cons: Moderate brightness, Keyboard, Very limited maintenance options, Undersized cooling system, As so often, a brighter and outdoor suitable screen. Also, this Lifebook doubtlessly lacks a pleasant to type on keyboard.
Fujitsu Lifebook U772 review – the business ultrabook
31 July 2012
Summary: The Fujitsu LifeBook U772 is only one of the few business ultrabooks out there and it meets customers with fabulous looks and solid build quality, plus the productivity and the features clients in corporate environments need. It has its flaws though and it is a bit pricey.
Pros: astonishing looks and build quality, accurate keyboard and trackpad, non-glare screen with a thin bezel, plenty of ports, 3G, docking connector and other business features bundled
Cons: average battery life, stiff trackpad, only a HD ready screen with rather poor viewing angles, on the pricey side
Summary: The $1,149 Fujitsu LifeBook U772 Ultrabook combines solid speed, long battery life and security in a lightweight and durable design. However, we wish the keyboard offered more travel and that the touchpad wasn't so stiff in the middle. For the money, we prefer the ASUS Zenbook UX31A with its full HD display, backlit keyboard and excellent audio for $1,079. Those looking for a business partner, though, may find the U772 better suited to their needs.
Conclusion: The Fujitsu LifeBook U772 is one of the more interesting and unique looking Ultrabooks on the market. It's also one of the thinnest and lightest without feeling a tad flimsy like the also light and skinny Toshiba Portege Z835 and Z935. The U772 will likely appeal to business users with its strong security features and port replicator, but consumers may find the design and excellent build quality appealing. Our only complaints?
Pros: Very slim and elegant design. Strong corporate-facing features like a port replicator connector and biometrics.
Cons: Middling display, very shallow keyboard with no backlight.
Fujitsu’s Lifebook U772 Ultrabook is coming to the US, along with a couple of other computers
4 July 2012
Conclusion: The base model of the Lifebook U772 starts at $1149, which is a pretty standard price point for the specs, and you can customize to order the Ultrabook if you need more processing power or storage space. Fujitsu has always been good at making quality products (they’re designed in-house in Japan or Germany, since Fujitsu bought the Siemens share of the company, so the internal design is always top notch), and the Lifebook U772 is a great choice for anyone, whether you...
The Fujitsu Lifebook U772 offers plenty of features and good style, but user comfort is not one of its strong points

Summary: Fujitsu's U772 Ultrabook looks good and has plenty of features, but it offers a poor overall user experience that's inexcusable for a premium notebook with such a high price tag. It needs a better screen, keyboard and touchpad, pronto, and a quieter cooling system would also be of benefit.
Pros: Nice style and build quality, Very small power adapter, Good range of features (especially for business users)

Excerpt: Ультрабуки – это вообще хорошо, а уж 14-дюймовые модели в корпусе 13-дюймовых нас особенно привлекают и интересуют. К тому же Fujitsu Lifebook U772 интересен и по остальным параметрам: он легкий, тонкий и, что главное, удобный. Посмотрим, как у него обстоят дела со временем жизни от батареи, качеством дисплея и прочими важными для ноутбуков показателями.
Excerpt: Ноутбуки Fujitsu-Siemens в свое время числились в лидерах российского рынка, затем последовал некоторый спад, но сейчас Fujitsu снова в седле, намереваясь завоевать не только наш, но и мировой рынок. Причем вендору есть что предложить покупателям.
