Fujitsu has announced its latest flagship Ultrabook, the Lifebook UH90. Boldly claiming it as the world’s thinnest Ultrabook, the Lifebook UH90 is more than just a pretty face: it is also one of the first laptops to sport the new IZGO technology in its super-sharp 14-inch, 3200 x 1800 touch display.
Measuring only 15.5mm at its thickest point, the new Lifebook UH90 is powered by the new Intel Core i5-4200U Haswell processor and a 500GB hybrid hard drive, the UH90 features an “Omnidesign” philosophy that is emblematic of the slender, solid and iconic beauty of a Japanese sword. And, like other premium Lifebook laptops, the UH90 Ultrabook’s “Made in Japan” tag means that it is built to highly stringent standards that allows it to withstand up to 200kgf, as tested in the company’s internal top-down pressure tests.
The Lifebook UH90’s 14-inch IZGO panel is fitted into a chassis that is normally built for 13-inch machines, and with its 3200 x 1800 resolution, has more than 2.7 times the amount of pixels on a standard Full HD screen, giving it an incredible pixel density of 262ppi. The IZGO panel itself also provides amazingly vivid colour reproduction while drawing less power. Fujitsu has also added a special surface processing called Super Glide Coating to ease gesture navigation using the touchscreen.
The new Fujitsu Lifebook UH90 will be available as a Japan-exclusive at the end of this month, with prices to be determined by retailers as is the practice is the Japanese open pricing policy. Unfortunately there is no word if this Ultrabook will be available overseas.
