Japanese electronics company Fujitsu has a history of making ridiculously lightweight laptops, but the new Fujitsu LifeBook UH-X/E3 takes things to extreme.
It’s a notebook with a 13.3 inch full HD display, an Intel Tiger Lake processor with Intel Xe graphics and full-sized Ethernet and HDMI ports. But the laptop measures just 0.61 inches thick and weighs just 1.4 pounds.
Of course, something’s got to give, and in this case it’s the battery.
The Fujitsu LifeBook UH-X/E3 has a 25Wh lithium-ion battery, which is pretty anemic by modern standards. Fujitsu says you can expect up to 11 hours of battery life under ideal conditions, but I suspect you should probably cut that number in half in real-world conditions.
The RAM is also soldered to the motherboard and there’s no way to upgrade it.
Fujitsu does offer a similar laptop called the LifeBook UH90/E3 with a 50W battery, but that model has a starting weight of 1.8 pounds.
