Fujitsu introduces the LIFEBOOK U938 - an enhanced version of its flagship ultra-mobile notebook designed for road warriors and frequent travellers. The lightest fully featured business notebook on the market today, the LIFEBOOK U938 comprises powerful 8th generation Intel Core vPro processors, full size connectivity ports and enterprise-grade biometric authentication.

The 13.3-inch (33.8cm) LIFEBOOK U938 is just 15.5mm tall and weighs in at only 920g. Despite its lightweight and slimline profile, it is packed with features including best-in-class connectivity options - with full size interfaces for HDMI, USB types A and C, audio combo, SD and a smart card reader, plus an optional 4G/LTE module. The notebook is also equipped with a long battery run-time to ensure all-day productivity.

This top-of-the-line LIFEBOOK is also highly secure, featuring Fujitsu's PalmSecure1 advanced biometric authentication system, which uses individuals' unique palm vein patterns to confirm their identities and help prevent unauthorised access to data.

Users can alternatively specify a fingerprint reader for access control, while further security is provided by the integrated SmartCard Reader and inclusion of the TPM 2.0 module for hardware-based authentication.
