In the test, the Fujitsu Lifebook U9310 hardly shows any weaknesses and gets a top rating in four out of five evaluation categories and it only scores “good” for ergonomics. The Intel Core from the Comet Lake generation offers good power. In addition, 16 GB of RAM ensure that the computer does not stall. An SSD with one TB of storage space rounds off the first-class equipment package. In addition to Bluetooth 5.0 and WiFi 6, the laptop has an LTE module, so that you can connect it to the network anywhere, provided you have a SIM card. In the video we tell you what is important when buying a good premium notebook.

Fujitsu LifeBook U9310-MC7DMDE Review: Stable case without defects
The 13.3 inch Fujitsu LifeBook U9310-MC7DMDE measures around 31 cm in width, a little over 21 cm in depth and around 1.8 cm in height. Thanks to these dimensions and a chassis made of magnesium, the notebook weighs only 900 g. Since the power supply unit also weighs only 355 g, the LifeBook has a total weight of around 1.3 kg and, as a lightweight, is an ingenious companion for on the go. There are no defects on the case, such as unclean edges or sharp corners. So you can easily put your hands on or on the body to work without injuring yourself.
The touchpad and keyboard as input devices also have no weaknesses. The only criticism of the touchpad is the size. Fujitsu could have been a little more generous here. Because compared to other premium class notebooks, the mouse replacement is a bit smaller. But it works precisely and lets your fingers slide easily over the pad without them sticking.
In terms of volume, the device does not produce any unpleasant noise under full load. Only users who love total silence may be somewhat disturbed by the background noise.
The biggest point of criticism is the notebook’s additional software because there are numerous shortcuts on the desktop. But these only lead to the Windows Store, from where you have to download the software. For example, there is the “Function Manager”, which you can use to control the fan, battery, and Type-C ports, among other things. Unfortunately, not all programs come together under one surface, so you have to switch over and over again.
Fujitsu Lifebook U9310: Outstanding performance and excellent equipment
Overall rating: Very good (1.4) With the Lifebook U9310, Fujitsu is bringing a first-class premium notebook onto the market. It not only convinces with strong performance values and fabulous features but also with an excellent display. The Fujitsu Lifebook U9310 remains pleasantly quiet even under full load. In addition, the 14-inch notebook with a power supply only weighs around 1.25 kg.
Fujitsu LifeBook U9310-MC7DMDE Test: Outstanding performance and excellent equipment
Fujitsu uses an Intel Core i7-10610U of the Comet Lake generation for the processor. The four-core device works with 1,800 MHz as standard and briefly reaches 4,900 MHz during peak performance in Turbo Boost.
However, the manufacturer does without a dedicated graphics card, instead of relying on the integrated graphics solution of the processor with the Intel UHD Graphics 620. Their performance is sufficient for games like Overwatch, Rocket League or League of Legends with low resolution and reduced details, but you cannot play current Triple-A titles with the notebook, which costs around 1,900 euros. Still, you can stream 4K content to an external monitor or TV while streaming video without having to compromise.
In addition, the Fujitsu Lifebook U9310 offers numerous connection options. This includes an HDMI 2.0 port, two USB 3.2 Type A ports (Gen 1), and two USB Type C ports with Thunderbolt 3. You can use a headset thanks to a combination of a microphone and headphone input connect to the notebook. To connect the laptop to a network, a LAN port and WiFi 6 (802.11ax standard) are available, or you can use the integrated LTE module. You can also connect external Bluetooth-enabled devices such as headsets, speakers, or smartphones to the Lifebook using Bluetooth 5.0. All in all, there is hardly anything to be desired in terms of connection options.
The notebook is delivered with 16 GB of LPDDR3-2133 RAM. This allows you to easily open and edit large Excel files or a variety of browser tabs without the device stalling. The one TB M.2 SSD is enough to serve as a file storage medium for amateur photographers or musicians. Space won’t run out that quickly.
The fabulous equipment is complemented by an SDXC card reader, a full HD webcam, two speakers, two digital microphones and a smart card reader. The notebook also supports PalmSecure Palm Vein technology. With this, the device can be unlocked via your palm vein pattern, a free software solution is available for download. The corresponding link can be found in the “Fujitsu Extras” folder.
Fujitsu LifeBook U9310-MC7DMDE: Brilliant Full HD display and good battery life
When examining the battery life, we measured 11 hours and 8 minutes in video mode and 7 hours and 31 minutes in the office test. The notebook does not provide any new highlights, but the times compared to other notebooks are flawless and do not give rise to any criticism. Because the measured values allow you to work for a long time while traveling without having to reconnect the notebook to the mains.
The IPS panel used by Fujitsu is 13.3 inches and has a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The maximum brightness measurement gave a good value of 395 candelas per square meter. Since the display is also matte, it is ideal for use in bright offices or outdoors.
We also measure an excellent checkerboard contrast of 223: 1. The biggest criticism of the monitor is the color space coverage, although it still reaches around 97 percent for sRGB, but only around 73 percent for AdobeRGB and only around 75 percent for the DCI-P3. All of these are only average values that mean that the notebook is not recommended for professional photographers. However, it is still suitable for hobby photographers and users who want to use the device primarily for office applications will definitely not make a mistake when buying this laptop.
