SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
- The lightest-ever Fujitsu notebook, LIFEBOOK U937, offers maximum ultra-mobile portability
- International edition of flagship LIFEBOOK model weighs just two pounds, yet delivers all-day battery performance plus embedded biometric authentication and full connectivity
Fujitsu America, Inc. today introduces its new flagship notebook - Fujitsu Notebook LIFEBOOK® U937 – in North America. With a starting weight under two pounds (1.76 lbs, 799 grams), the lightest ever ultra-mobile model in the Fujitsu line-up joins an exclusive club of sub-1kg 13.3-inch clamshell notebooks that can also provide up to 15.5 hours of battery performance.
The LIFEBOOK U937 is no lightweight when it comes to performance, power and connectivity. It features the latest, 7th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor, solid-state drives, and runs Microsoft Windows® 10 Pro, making it the perfect choice for the busy executive who needs more than a tablet while on the move. With a full-size keyboard, choice of black or red colors, and 13.3-inch FHD display with optional touchscreen, the LIFEBOOK U937 provides the freedom to work anywhere, anytime.
Nor is there any compromise on security for the LIFEBOOK U937, with biometric security included as standard, with the choice of either fingerprint reader or palm vein authentication. Further protection comes with an integrated SmartCard reader and enterprise-class TPM 2.0 encryption. A solid magnesium housing ensures the 15.5mm thin LIFEBOOK U937 is tough on the outside, too.
In many cases, shorter battery life, lower performance or limited connectivity – for example the necessity of using dongles for external ports – have been the trade-offs for a lightweight notebook. There is no need to make these compromises with the LIFEBOOK U937, with up to 15.5 hours of battery life and boasts a full set of interfaces including full-size LAN and HDMI connector, plus embedded WLAN connectivity and Bluetooth®. For additional convenience, Fujitsu also offers a USB Type-C® port replicator, allowing connection to an external display, mouse, keyboard, and other peripherals.
Kevin Wrenn, senior vice president, Fujitsu America, Inc., said: "Previously, CIOs had to balance weight, performance, battery life and security when selecting notebooks for their staff. The new LIFEBOOK U937 was purpose-built to deliver these first-rate features in a 13.3-inch clamshell notebook, so IT executives can deliver powerful notebooks that offer the freedom to work from anywhere, anytime. Weighing in well under two pounds, the new flagship LIFEBOOK model is equipped with best-in-class components and biometric security as a standard, as well as a battery that can easily last throughout standard and extended workdays."
The first shipments of LIFEBOOK U937 models are expected in North America on May 16, 2017
