Fujitsu LIFEBOOK UH572 Launched At Starting Price Of Rs 65,000

13.3" portable device comes in ultra-slim aluminium housing, with DTS Boost audio and 7.5 hours battery life.


Fujitsu has launched the LIFEBOOK UH572 Ultrabook sporting the new SlimEdge design with aluminium housing. Powered by the latest 3rd generation Intel Core processors with 8 GB RAM, this laptop has a 13.3" anti-glare screen that should help with better visibility in brightly light environments. A built-in HD camera at the top of the bezel is great for hi-def video chat. Battery life is up to 7.5 hours, which should let you use it comfortably while you take it away for a long duration to your work or college project. At just 0.7", this ultra-slim device weighs just 1.6 kg – very portable indeed! Windows 7 Home or Professional comes pre-installed according to the customer's choice.

Storage is taken care of by SSD and HDD options ranging from 128 GB to 500 GB. Multimedia is via stereo speakers that support DTS Boost, which claims to maximise the acoustic output of the device using proprietary algorithms. Connectivity is provided by WLAN, Bluetooth, and optional 3G \ UMTS. While an RJ-45 port is absent, there is a USB adapter to take care of the wired connectivity option. The company has managed to cram in two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports to connect faster peripherals, and a USB 2.0 port that supports charging devices even when the ultrabook is switched off.

Price-wise, the Fujitsu LIFEBOOK UH572 Ultrabook is similar to other ultrabooks – they are priced a tad more than laptops. Laptops can do things a lot faster, but at the disadvantage of not being so portable, and having a lower battery life. At an MRP of Rs 65,000, this ultrabook seems to be a good deal going by the looks, but we'll reserve judgment till we get our hands on one.
