Fujitsu to launch thinnest laptop with 11-hour battery


Japan-based electronics company Fujitsu said that it will be launching a super-thin Ultrabook laptop in June 2013. The device is built on the latest Haswell processors, with a 11-hour battery life and a screen that is nearly three times HD resolution.


The company also said that the new UH90/L model from Lifebook line will be the world’s thinnest laptop. The latest laptop will have a hard disk drive of 15.5 mm at the thickest point. This release will also mark the company’s entry into the fast-growing ranks of PCs that are built around Haswell processors. These processors have slightly improved performance with reduced power requirements.

The laptop features a 14-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 3,200 X 1,800 pixels or 2.7 times full HD, with a pixel density of 262 ppi. The device has been built with Sharp’s IGZO technology that is named after the semiconductor on which it is based. The machine runs on a lithium polymer battery with 45 watt-hour.

The company went on to say that it will target the gaming market with the Windows-based Ultrabook and is teaming with Square Enix, makers of the Final Fantasy Series, for promotion purposes. The laptop will be available in red and black colors and will most likely cost $1,900 in Japan.
