Fujitsu Offers Unrivaled Mobility With Two New Superior LIFEBOOK Models

Fujitsu EMEIA

News facts:
  • The lightest-ever Fujitsu notebook, LIFEBOOK U937, offers maximum ultra-mobile portability
  • International edition of flagship LIFEBOOK model weighs just 920g, yet delivers all-day battery performance plus embedded biometric authentication and full connectivity
  • LIFEBOOK S937 provides two day-plus battery runtime for the no-compromise mobile user
Hanover, March 20, 2017 – Fujitsu today introduces its new flagship notebook for the EMEIA region (Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India), the international edition of FUJITSU Notebook LIFEBOOK U937. Weighing just 920 grams, the lightest ever ultra-mobile model in Fujitsu’s line-up joins an exclusive club of sub-1kg 13.3-inch clamshell notebooks that can also provide up to 11 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 keyboard, 13.3-inch touch display and 4G/LTE, 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 Fujitsu PalmSecure 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 11 hours of battery life and boasts a full set of interfaces including full-size LAN and HDMI connector, plus embedded WLAN / WWAN 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.
Ruediger Landto, Head of Client Computing at Fujitsu EMEIA, says: “In the past, an executive looking for an ultra-mobile notebook was forced to make a choice between weight, performance, battery life and security. Now you can absolutely have it all, as Fujitsu has made a breakthrough in delivering a notebook that provides all of these in one device. In developing the LIFEBOOK U937, every gram was important, as we focused on ensuring that the new flagship LIFEBOOK model could weigh in at below 1kg. We’re proud to be introducing the only full-power, 13.3-inch clamshell notebook that offers biometric security as standard alongside a battery that can easily last even the longest working day – yet can achieve all this and still tip the scales at just 920g.”

New long-life LIFEBOOK S937 for mobile professionals

Alongside the LIFEBOOK U937, Fujitsu introduces the new LIFEBOOK S937, a notebook with battery power that is guaranteed to get even the most demanding business user through the longest of working days. The new model is perfect for the power user who needs a bright screen, a backlit keyboard and full computing power – and expects this all day long, providing 15-plus hours of operation as standard. To go beyond expectations, the LIFEBOOK S937 features a second battery which slots into the modular bay to provide an additional 6 hours of runtime. Available security features include a choice of embedded palm vein or fingerprint sensors, a SmartCard reader and TPM 2.0 to help protect data from unauthorized access.

Pricing and availability

The first shipments of both LIFEBOOK models are expected in the Europe, Middle East, India and Africa region on April 10, 2017. Pricing varies according to model, configuration and country, starting at 1899 Euros for the LIFEBOOK U937 and 1649 Euros for the LIFEBOOK S937.
