Fujitsu Lifebook U904 review


Stylish consumer design, biometric security and a dazzling display - does this business Ultrabook have it all?

High-res display ; Elegant design ; Thin and light ; Biometric security

Lacklustre keyboard ; Average battery life

Chose this one for high resolution and because it was easy to swap memory and hard drive (put in SSD). Everything works well enough except the track pad which is beyond bad and has to be disabled to make the machine usable.

Good battery life, self-serviceable, pretty nice display

The track pad is pretty bad. At times the cursor will jump all over the screen. It seems like a build up of static. The feel of the trackpad is also pretty bad. The feel of the keyboard is so-so. Overall construction seems adequate, but not robust

Fujitsu Lifebook U904 U9040M77A1GB


Battery, style, weight - all the stuff you might expect - as good as they come

The biggie for me - the screen resolution is crazy (yes, should be in the Good Points side - but not) - for Photoshop it has got to be the best ever, but with Windows 8.1 and the problems with the operating system, that is shipped as standard, lots of...
