Fujitsu Introduces World’s Lightest Business Convertible in its class

News facts:
  • Powerful new FUJITSU Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X business convertible weighs just 1kg with integrated pen garage
  • Fujitsu updates lightweight clamshell LIFEBOOK U939 with new features including backlit keyboard and Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology
  • Full LIFEBOOK line-up gains performance boost thanks to introduction of latest, eighth generation Intel Core processors
Sydney, May 09, 2019 – Fujitsu today introduces the world’s lightest business convertible PC, the LIFEBOOK U939XOpen a new window with integrated inductive charging pen garage. Fast and agile as a clamshell notebook, the super-slim U939X also folds flat, converting into a powerful Windows-based tablet. Weighing in at just 980g, this versatile new LIFEBOOK enables business power users to replace both a conventional notebook and a tablet with a single device.

The 13.3-inch LIFEBOOK U939X, protected by a robust magnesium shell, boasts a super high-density anti-glare touchscreen display with pen and a full-size keyboard. Connectivity is assured thanks to both HDMI and Ethernet ports and 4G/LTE option, meaning there is no need to carry around fiddly adaptors to connect to corporate networks.

Packed with the latest Intel Core vPro processor to provide leading performance, the LIFEBOOK U939X features the highly accurate pen with Wacom AES technology. In tablet mode, this makes it easy to annotate documents, as well as enabling digital signatures direct to the device.

Competitively priced LIFEBOOK U729X also joins convertible line-up

The competitively priced little brother of the U939X is the FUJITSU Tablet LIFEBOOK U729X. This is an upgraded, next-generation successor to the popular highly portable Lifebook P series. The U729X comes with a 12.5-inch full HD touch display that folds flat in tablet mode, and comes complete with a Wacom pen and inductive charging pen garage.

Second-generation of Fujitsu’s 748g ultra-lightweight business notebook LIFEBOOK U939X

Additionally, Fujitsu has upgraded the super-light LIFEBOOK U939 ultra-mobile with new features, without increasing the weight – which remains constant at just 748 grams. The second-generation clamshell model gains an infrared camera – enabling the secure use of Windows Hello for convenient logon, an anti-glare touchscreen and a backlit keyboard, as well as performance and graphics upgrades.

Both the LIFEBOOK U939X and LIFEBOOK U939 as well as the U729X include Fujitsu’s PalmSecure biometric authentication technology and feature a choice of the latest, eighth generation Intel Core vPro processors. Also new for the U939X and U939 is the introduction of Intel Thunderbolt 3 technology, enabling the connection of multiple displays or devices through a single, compact USB Type-C port.

Joe Ciardi, Product Manager of Client Computing Devices at Fujitsu Australia Limited says, "Convertible laptops are gaining popularity in the corporate space, primarily because they offer the best of both worlds. The convenience of a traditional clamshell laptop being blended with the pen and touch capability of a tablet heightens the appeal to many customers. This hybrid design also enables new working styles to enhance the user experience, such as in a cramped airline seat where it's often difficult to find a comfortable working position. The LIFEBOOK U939X ticks all the boxes, being an easily-carried device that does not compromise on features, functions or power".

Fujitsu introduces performance upgrades across the Lifebook line-up

Overall, Fujitsu has upgraded its whole LIFEBOOK U-series line-up. The advanced class LIFEBOOK U7x9 models – available with screen sizes of 12.5, 14 and 15.6 inches – gain Intel Thunderbolt 3 for USB Type-C, and an HDMI output. Fujitsu has also refreshed additional models in its mobile range with the latest, eighth generation Intel Core vPro processors, including the LIFEBOOK T939, STYLISTIC Q739 tablet and LIFEBOOK E5 series.

Pricing and availability

The LIFEBOOK U939X and the LIFEBOOK U939 come in two colors: Fujitsu red and business black. The full line-up of Fujitsu LIFEBOOK notebooks and STYLISTIC tablets is available to order immediately on a global basis – directly from Fujitsu and via resellers.
