Fujitsu Lifebook UH572
The Fujitsu Lifebook UH572 looks good; boasts a nice, high-def webcam; and packs a roomy hard drive, but it disappoints somewhat. A reasonably priced (at $999) 13.3-inch consumer sibling of the business-oriented Lifebook UH772, it delivers subpar performance, and the keyboard isn’t ideal. Still, the unit does have an interesting feature: It supports Intel’s Wi-Di technology for beaming a notebook display to a TV that also supports Wi-Di (if you also have a Wi-Di adapter). If industrial design contributed to our scoring, however, the UH572 would have done better. From its brushed silver magnesium alloy cover to its smooth black interior with blue lighting accents, the UH572 appears a class act.
