Fujitsu UH-X laptop review: the heavyweight as a feather
One of the things I often hear from our readers, especially those constantly on the go, is the need for a laptop that takes up less space in your backpack but doesn’t skimp on performance. For them, the definition of a powerful laptop isn’t about a 4K UHD display or the device’s graphical fidelity. Instead, they want a small, lightweight, reliable laptop that’s easy to travel with, has an excellent keyboard, and enough battery life to last a day.
The big question for me was: what is it like to use the Fujitsu UH-X that weighs only 878 grams? The “Made in Japan” laptop answers many non-tech but self-aware people who travel a lot and demand a lightweight laptop essential for their work and gaming life. My review of the Fujitsu UH-X focuses on how this laptop fits into my workday.
Fujitsu UH-X review: featherweight champion
First of all, I am glad that Fujitsu is sticking to its Japanese Zen-style design philosophy for this laptop and is not trying to imitate the MacBook Air. Its simplicity and a fluid design make it different from other laptops, especially those made by Apple.
Made from magnesium-lithium alloy, Fujitsu says the UH-X weighs only 878 grams… that’s light and clear; a lot of thought and effort went into the design. My review unit was the black version, and it looks very fancy. This is subjective, but I think this laptop will appeal to business users and regular consumers.
I have always liked Fujitsu laptops, mainly because of their size and weight.
For PC companies, designing an ultra-thin and portable laptop is all about compromises. But the Fujitsu UH-X is different. It still has a 13.3-inch screen, an excellent keyboard (more on that later), and a great selection of ports. You get two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, a full-size HDMI port, an SD card reader, a 3.5mm jack for headphones and microphones, as well as a full-size Ethernet jack.
Fujitsu UH-X review: brilliant display
The 13.3-inch screen produces sharp images and stunning text. It is not OLED, but the IGZO panel has a maximum brightness of 400 nits. I have had no problem reading the e-newspaper in the morning or watching Emily in Paris on Netflix. And even though the screen has a proper 1920 x 1080p resolution, it should be fine for most people. The bezel has also been trimmed, and the screen looks much better.

Fujitsu UH-X review: ideal writing device
I write a lot, and I spend on my laptop is high compared to an average user. For me, the keyboard has to be good. The keyboard on the UH-X is phenomenal. The keys are spacious and a pleasure to type. The keyboard has significantly deeper essential travel, and I found it comfortable enough for casual browsing and longer typing sessions. It also has a backlight, so writing in the dark shouldn’t be a problem. For security, the laptop has a built-in fingerprint scanner. The trackpad, while responsive, could have been better. The problem is that it is a small trackpad and should be changed in the next version of the UH-X that hits the market.

Fujitsu UH-X review: solid performance
Performance-wise, the new Fujitsu UH-X is more than capable of everyday activities like browsing the web, writing stories in Google Docs, checking emails, researching, and consuming multimedia content. The expired experience of using this laptop (I have Core i5 11th gen version, 8GB RAM, and 512GB SSD) is no different from any other Windows laptop I have recently reviewed. I found this laptop responsive enough for editing light video sessions, and the device can also be used for photo editing. The UH-X never disappoints in that regard. Please note that this laptop is not designed to play AAA games or play heavy video files.
For most people, the battery life will be more than enough. It usually takes around six hours (surfing the web and writing stories) before you need to plug it in, which is not the best out there.

Fujitsu UH-X review: excellent speakers
The speakers are excellent on this laptop, though not on the level one would find on the 16-inch MacBook Pro and Surface Laptop 4. I listened to music on it and took Zoom calls, and it’s surprisingly good. If the Fujitsu UH-X has a fundamental flaw, it is the webcam. The 720p webcam might be acceptable two years ago, but not anymore, especially now when users spend more than attending Zoom calls due to working from home
As for my final verdict, the Fujitsu UH-X stands out for its slim and ultra-light design. In a way, it redefines what a lightweight laptop should look like. I like many things about this laptop, be it its sound design, an excellent keyboard, and stereo speakers. If you write a lot and are thinking of buying a premium Windows laptop, the Fujitsu UH-X should be the perfect computer.
