Though it is thin and lightweight, the brand said it has not skimmed on the quality and durability of the device, going as far as conducting rigorous stress and drop tests on the laptop. Fujitsu said it has subjected the device to drop tests from a height of 76cm (roughly 2.5 feet) and pressure tests that saw the laptop able to withstand a full surface pressure test where 200kgf (kilogram-force) was applied to it.
That goes to say that despite its slim and sleek exterior the UH-X Fujitsu claims the laptop is durable. The laptop comes with an 84-key keyboard that is backlit and has key travel of 1.5mm. This is paired with a generously sized multi gesture trackpad.

Both variants come with Intel UHD graphics, so don’t expect it get a lot of graphic intensive work or gaming done on this device. But chances are you are buying UH-X for its ability to crunch spreadsheets, presentations and word documents rather than making the high-score in a game. Besides that, the UH-X supports the latest WiFi 6 standard and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
