The 14" LIFEBOOK U772 Ultrabook is distinguished by its frameless WXGA HD Crystal View display delivering edge-to-edge viewing and support for an optional port replicator for easy docking/connecting to an external monitor, mouse and/or keyboard. Sporting an ultra slim .69" profile, weighing 3.15 pounds, a fast boot-up and offering approximately 7 hours of battery life,(1) it's the perfect business companion to take to the office or on the road.

The LIFEBOOK U772 Ultrabook is fully customizable with different memory, CPU, and hard drive options.
