The Fujitsu LifeBook U938 is a compact laptop that has a 13.3 inch display and which measures about 0.6 inches thick and has a starting weight of just under 1.8 pounds.

It’s one of 20 new computers the Japanese company unveiled earlier this year, and now Fujitsu has announced that the LifeBook U938 is coming to the US and Canada this month.

The computer supports up to an 8th-gen Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake Refresh processor, up to 20GB of RAM (4GB of onboard memory + SODIMM slot for up to 16GB more), and up to 512GB of solid state storage.

Other features include a full HD display (with optional touch support), a USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB Type-A ports, an HDMI port, an Ethernet jack, an audio jack, and an SD card reader.

25Wh and 50Wh battery options are available, leading to a few differences between LifeBook U938 configurations:

  • 2 cell, 25 Whr battery + non-touch display = 1.76 pounds and 7 hours battery life
  • 4 cell, 50 Whr battery + non-touch display = 2.03 pounds and 13 hours battery life
  • 4 cell, 50 Whr battery +  touchscreen display – 2.09 pounds and 9 hours battery life

Fujitsu also included enterprise-friendly features such as a fingerprint reader, a SmartCard reader, and a palm vein sensor.

The laptop has a magnesium case and it will come in matte black or satin red colors.

Fujitsu hasn’t announced the North American pricing for the LifeBook U938 yet, but if I had to guess, I’d say “a lot.”

  1. Fujitsu laptops are the highest quality and bulletproof hardware you can find. It is just working, always, without a flaw. Mine, 10 years and still running but I don’t use it anymore.. so my question is: Is there still a big market for this with so many cheap and well built laptops you can afford to change every one or two years with each time an increase in performance.
    The keyboard layout looks strange, 3U Spacebar, 2 rows Enter. 6 rows is too much on a 13″ laptop. Perhaps it is not the global version?

  2. Why doesn’t anyone ever report screen resolutions? Nobody wants a 14″ 1366×768 laptop. “Full HD” could mean anything… at least tell us what aspect ratio it is

    1. Full HD pretty much always means 1920 x 1080 or occasionally something funky like 1920 x 1200. I’ve never seen it used to describe anything less than 1080p.

      1. Some get away with calling 1,280×720 “HD” as it is the minimum resolution in television to be considered HD. When you read “Full HD” it almost always means 1920×1080. On a 14″ display that should be sufficient for anything but the most critical work. I am not a gamer so I cannot address resolution needs in gaming.

      1. That’s not a spec that’s often released in press materials. When I get a chance to see a laptop in person, I’ll usually point out if it’s matte, because that seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Generally speaking, I just assume every new laptop announced has a glossy screen until proven otherwise.

  3. In surprised at the difference the touch screen makes in battery life.

  4. Yes Fujitsu laptops are expensive, but the few I have ever had the pleasure to work with have been absolute top-notch kit. Wish I could afford one.
