Fujitsu Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X Hands On
Fujitsu has sent us the world’s lightest 2-in-1 convertible laptop, the Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X. Make no mistake; this device is not for everyone. Like Lenovo’s X1 Carbon, HP Elitebook, and the Dell Latitude series, Fujitsu is offering reliability, compatibility, and security. If you’re in the market for a premium business laptop, then check out the Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X!
The top is bare, save for the Fujitsu logo, and the laptop is coated with a textured finish, which may limit fingerprint marks, but attracts oil instead.
Underneath the grooves for the lid, you get indicator lights regarding the state of the laptop. Due to the device’s low weight, you can’t open the laptop with just one hand.
At the back, there are two sturdy hinges keep the display in place and a small exhaust grill.
The Fujitsu Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X is the Swiss Army Knife of laptops, with all the ports you may need while still keeping its 17.1mm thin frame. Over at the left, you have your charging port, two Thunderbolt 3 ports with Power Delivery support, a full-sized HDMI port, one USB 3 Type-A port, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack. The dual stereo speakers are also located on the sides.
On the right sits the pen dock, power button, USH-II SD 4.0 Card Reader, another USB 3 Type-A, and Kensington lock.
You also get a pull-out style Ethernet cable if you need to connect the device directly.
Opening the device reveals its 13.3-inch IPS touch display with an ambient light sensor to adjust backlight brightness automatically. Colors are muted due to its anti-glare coating, but it allows you to use the device outdoors.
On top of the display sits an IR camera that’s compliant with Windows Hello and two digital array microphones.
Fujitsu used a TKL keyboard to fit the laptop’s frame. Keys are well-sized and well-spaced, with ample amounts of travel distance. It is, however, not as tactile as I would’ve liked. The key face is professional looking as you’d expect from a business laptop. There are 3-step individual key backlighting as well, triggered by pressing the FN+Space bar.
Unfortunately, the touchpad is rather small, with physical buttons below it. While this may be a gripe with normal laptops, having the touch functionality makes it more forgivable.
Underneath, there’s a small vent for intake, and four small rubber feet to keep the device steady.
Design-wise, the Fujitsu Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X fits what it was designed for – a business environment. It has a muted design that doesn’t steal people’s attention, a host of ports for any occasion, and a frame that you can take anywhere with ease.
The Fujitsu Tablet LIFEBOOK U939X starts at PHP 130,000 with higher variants ranging up to PHP 160,000. Stay tuned for our full review to see how well the enterprise notebook performs, as well as our thoughts on the device overall.
