Fujitsu Japan has released UH 75 which the company claims to be world’s lightest 13” laptop. Weighing in at just 777 grams, this 13.3 inch ultrabook computer is equipped with latest Intel’s kabylake i5-7200U processor, 4 gigabytes of DDR4 RAM and 128GB SSD. If you want more storage, you will have to go with Fujitsu UH90 that weighs a modest 913 grams and packs 256GB bigger SSD. It has a bigger battery pack too – 50 Wh vs 25 Wh.
Other common specifications of Fujistu UH90 and UH75 include 13.3 inch anti-glare FHD screen, Intel HD Graphics 620, 3x USB 3.0 ports, SD card slot, 0.9MP webcam, fingerprint scanner, LAN and HDMI port. Both laptop models measure about 309 × 212.5 × 15.5 mm.
Its older model, FMVWXU1N3 was only sold online and weighed 1.55-kilos so not exactly lightweight. Fujitsu explained the areas where the weight cutting was done to make world’s record. The LCD glass went from 0.25mm -> 0.2, light guide plate from 0.6mm -> 0.4mm and reflection sheet from 0.15mm -> 0.1mm. This made it 20 percent lighter and 0.4mm thinner. Battery pack was also reduced which further reduced from 180-grams to 142 grams which cut another 20 percent weight. Bottom chassis’ thickness was reduced from 25%, went from 1mm-> 0.75mm.
Interestingly, typing experience is not hampered and these two ultrabooks will offer great typing experience with its 19mm key pitch and two step system with different pressing pressures. Although the metal base plate of keyboard has been thinned and made lighter by 11 grams, Fujistu has increased the fixing screw from 2 to 10 to ensure typing experience is not compromised.
Fujtisu has equipped both UH75 and UH90 with fast charging capabilities and both can charge from 0 to 50 percent in 30-minutes. UH90 will cost 200,000 yen (1770 dollars) while UH70 will retail at 190,000 yen (1680 dollars).
