Fujitsu is readying the release of the LifeBook U772, its business-targeted Ivy Bridge Ultrabook.
Fujitsu told us that the spec limitations of Ultrabooks has been too “consumer orientated”, but the firm is now able to create more strictly business focused machines thanks to Ivy Bridge.
This will help drive BYOD trends, Fujitsu claimed to TechEye, as the machines are “much more secure” for business use than other models. Fujitsu said that this will make life easier for IT managers concerned about using laptops in the workplace, with the machine designed specifically for business to business users.
The U772 is the first Ultrabook to feature port replicator docking connectivity, so that business users can easily access a multitude of connections as required.
In addition to this there are also two USB 3.0 slots, one USB 2.0, full sized HDMI, space for an ethernet adaptor and SD card. The machine weighs in at 1.4KG with solid magnesium housing, according to the limited specifications Fujitsu was offering.
The release date is in line with Ivy Bridge, but a spokesperson said the company is ready to release the machine immediately – as soon as Intel gives the nod.
Fujitsu was also showing off its U572 product, aimed at SMBs, which was debuted at Cebit.
