Excerpt: IF someone asks for a word to describe anything corporate related, it is unlikely that the terms "cool" or "stylish" pop up in the mind. However, with the Lifebook U772, Fujitsu has managed to make an Ultrabook targeted for business users sleek, lightweight, powerful and downright beautiful. The red unit we received for our review oozes elegance and glamour, drawing many "oohs" and "ahs" whenever it is whipped out of its bag.
Pros: Stylish design; decent battery life; generous amount of ports.
Cons: Keyboard is too stiff; speakers not loud enough; display has poor viewing angles.
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.
Pros: Thin lightweight frame, Fast SSD, Solid performance and graphics, Good battery life, Docking connector
Conclusion: Perhaps you experienced similar thoughts while reading this review as we did during the test. First anticipation, because of the extremely attractive, slim and lightweight, yet very stable magnesium chassis . Then the delight about how much hardware finds room in the very tight space - including the 14-inch screen and the UMTS module .
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
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.
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)
