The Fujitsu U554 could leave users with mixed impressions. While the sub-notebook is great in a number of aspects, they would eventually spot some drawbacks. The laptop is simply adequate for consumers who seek to get large SSD and long battery runtimes.
The Fujitsu U554 is a combination of plastic and aluminum, however the thin chassis and compact dimensions could allow users to twist and bend the machine with some effort. Its black chiclet keyboard may flex somewhat during intense typing sessions and specific keys could have disturbingly wobbly pressure point. On the contrary, the touchpad of Fujitsu U554 does an overall good job, with reliable recognition at the bottom.
The 13.3-inch display has 1366 x 768 resolution and matte panel to improve usability during outdoor usages.
The Intel Core i5 4200U dual-core processor is clocked dynamically between 1.6GHz and 2.3GHz, through the Turbo Boost feature. The efficient Haswell architecture allows Intel to reduce the power consumption to 15W to improve battery runtimes and reduce excess heat. The 256GB SSD allows the Windows 8 operating system to load in seconds.
Lenovo take steps to reduce heat accumulation on the tablet and this seems to poorly affect the integrated HD Graphics 4400.
