Fujitsu has quietly launched the world’s lightest laptop computer, however sadly it is solely restricted to Japan for now. 

The WU-X/G2 is a part of the corporate’s Lifebook vary and weighs a mere 634g with out charger – about 22.4 ounces and just below 1.4 kilos.

It means this business laptop is lighter than the Apple iPad Pro 12.9 tablet which weighs 682g. Measurement clever, it would not strive any tips; at 307 x 197 x 15.5mm, it’s comparatively large which permits for a much bigger display, extra connectivity and, dare we are saying, a greater keyboard with a big Enter key and bodily buttons on its touchpad.

Tiny battery capability, large battery life?

The laptop computer comes with a 12-generation Intel Core processor (both 1235U or 1255U) and 8GB, 16GB or 32GB LPDDR4x reminiscence (twin channel and soldered onboard. Onboard storage ranges from 256GB to 2TB and there’s even an possibility for an exterior optical drive, nonetheless a typical factor in Japan.

The show is a whopping 13.3-inch full HD matte show with a HD webcam on the prime with a privateness shutter. Wi-fi connectivity is achieved through an Intel AX201 chipset that delivers Bluetooth 5.1 and WiFi-6. 

Regardless of its weight, the WU-X/G2 has a full array of ports that will put laptops weighing two or 3 times extra to disgrace. There’s one card reader, three USB ports, a full measurement HDMI port and even a Gigabit Ethernet port plus the facility button doubles as a fingerprint reader. No want for a laptop docking station.

Sadly, Fujitsu didn’t resort to any magic tips to realize a lot weight saving, as a substitute utilizing carbon fiber as the principle materials for its chassis. 

One nook has been reduce although, and disappointingly, it is battery capability. At 25WHr, it’s a few quarter of what you will see on some heavier rivals, however that’s completely acceptable given the truth that you must in principle be capable of trickle cost it utilizing a telephone charger and even an emergency power bank. Surprisingly, the producer quotes an estimated battery lifetime of 11 hours, which we really feel is extremely unlikely. 

One sudden freebie is a three-year guarantee and a three-year subscription to McAfee Livesafe safety software program. That goes in direction of sweetening the somewhat steep worth of 317,222 yen (about £1950, $2,400, AU$3,400) for its top quality mannequin (Core i7, 32GB RAM, 2TB SSD, Home windows 11 Professional).

We now have requested Fujitsu for a pattern for a overview and can replace this publish if we hear something from them.
