Fujitsu LIKEBOOK U7: a premium business model

Fujitsu has updated its family of Ultra-Mobile Premium Business systems with new LIFEBOOK models. Available in Italy through FINIX Technology Solutions, the FUJITSU Notebook LIFEBOOK U7 series refresh introduces i brand new 11 * generation Intel Core processors and a number of overall improvements that propel users to an unprecedented level of productivity.

Available with models of various sizes1, the LIFEBOOK U7 series introduces a virtually bezel-less display on 14 “and 15.5” notebooks. The new models are thinner and up to 15% smaller than those of the previous generation. This subtle look declined in warm silver or black results in a strong visual presence that is not lacking even with the screen open thanks to a practically frameless design combined with a sIntel IRIS Xe graphics system with dual-channel memory for vivid, sharp images that fill the display almost to the extreme edges. For those on the go, connectivity is essential, as is a full day of battery life. The new Advanced range of LIFEBOOK models introduces integrated 5G technology for the fastest possible mobile connectivity, while a powerful one 65Wh battery allows you to work all day without the need for cables. Charging is done through the convenient ports USB-C Thunderbolt 4.

The mobility is highlighted by the possibility to choose between the practicality of Windows Hello o Fujitsu PalmSecure contact-free authentication, a technology that provides the highest degree of security of any other integrated biometric authentication system. An electronic ePrivacy filter4 reduces the viewing angle of the display to make it more difficult for someone to peek at the screen. And with the Privacy Camera Shutter, a manual lens cap, the built-in webcam is definitely inactive when it needs to be turned off. However, all these new features do not translate into additional weight: new super-strong magnesium alloy casings reduce the weight of the entire range, with the 14 ″ LIFEBOOK U7411 model reaching just 1200g and the 15.6 ″ version which reaches only 1500g.
