Fujitsu finally releases today the much anticipated “lawyer-optimized” Lifebook U9311/F. As the title says, it is powered by the latest generation Tiger Lake 10nm Superfin CPU.
First unveiled in the last quarter of 2020, the Lifebook U9311 is introduced by its product series as a business notebook, empowering portable productivity with the latest hardware from Intel.
The particular variant that was unveiled today, the U9311/F, is the minimalist version, advertised to be for document sifting-focused professional tasks.
It sports a 13.3-inch capacitive touchscreen (res. 1080p), is sized at 309x197x15.5mm, and somewhat less than a kilogram (approx. 0.74 to 0.9 kg). At its heart is the latest Intel Core i7-1185G7 (4C/8T, 4.8Ghz max boost), more infamously known as the “expensive Core i7-1165G7”.
A very impressive mobile workload CPU, it can compete blow-to-blow with Ryzen in number-crunching workloads such as Office Apps, definitively fulfilling the intended design of the Lifebook U9311/F.Of course, being infused with an Iris Xe iGPU, the Lifebook U3911/F is also expected to be capable of low-settings AAA gaming. In fact, the Core i7-1185G7 can now soundly defeat the Ryzen 7 4800U in most titles, even with AMDs powerful Vega iGPU.
Other innards of the Lifebook U9311/F include 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage (via an NVMe SSD), and is pre-installed with Windows 10 Pro.
As for the extra variants of the Lifebook, U3911, there’s the 2-in-1 U3911/X, as well as other screen versions up to 15.6-inch.The Fujitsu Lifebook U3911/F is slated to retail for 262,400 yen (about 2,530 USD) in Japan.
