Prototypes are just that – near ready versions which are more or less able to hit the market, although there is always room to perform a few tweaks here and there to get the job done. Well, Fujitsu has come up with the Fujitsu Lifebook U722 prototype that is said to run on an Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge processor, and just like any other Ultrabook before it, you can also expect to find a 128GB solid state drive underneath the hood. Apart from that, expect RAM support to max out at 8GB, while those who prefer the traditional hard drive over a solid state drive due to the net amount of storage space can always opt for the former.
Other hardware specifications include a solitary USB 2.0 port that is kept company by the more modern USB 3.0 ports (there are two of those), an SDXC memory card slot, and an HDMI port apart from 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. I would personally go for the solid state drive version, and take advantage of the USB 3.0 ports by purchasing a USB 3.0 external hard drive in order to maximize the efficiency of the Fujitsu Lifebook U722 when it finally hits the market.
Just how thin and light is it? We do know it measures 0.63″ thin, and it will arrive this June in select regions for a yet unannounced price. Surely something like this would cost somewhere in the region of $999 (or less even) onwards, depending on the configuration.
