White keyboard in full-size not only good if pressed, but also has a spill-resistant structure. Cool again, the keyboard is coated with a special antibacterial ingredient that makes the keyboard surface not easily invaded by fungi. Generally, the keyboard is often dirty by the hands that cause bacteria to grow rapidly.
In terms of connectivity, the Lifebook S781 provides a fairly complete with a lot of I / O ranging from USB, eSATA, cardreader (support SDXC), Express Card, up to DVD-writer. Interestingly, slot optical drive that can be removed or replaced with lighter Blu-ray or mini projector module (sold separately) for presentation purposes.
Because prepared to supporting business, this notebook also equip themselves with complete security features such as fingerprint and SmartCard slot that is easily visible from outside. While further protection by TPM (Trusted Platform Module) and 3D Shock Sensor technology to reduce vibration on the hard drive if the notebook falls.
Apparently, the security shields in this notebook is also strengthened by the Advanced Theft Protection technology (ATP), which is considered more powerful than the process of data encryption. For this, Fujitsu use Intel processors that carries vPro system which combines the Intel AMT, Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT), and Intel Trusted Execution Technology (Intel TXT) to encrypt the data and maintain the security of your computer remotely. Hard drive can be locked automatically when it detects unusual operation. High level of security which is the mainstay of one of the Lifebook S781.
In addition to qualified armed security feature, on the Lifebook S781 also installed packet supporting applications that is quite useful, especially for power consumption management laptop economically. This notebook also uses an adapter that does not consume power (0 watts) when the notebook is off even though the adapter still plugged into a power source. This saves power and life of notebook adapter. Very rarely similar features found in competing products.
With a myriad of facilities that favored the Lifebook S781 is actually very interesting. Moreover, this series is also made in Japan using quality materials. This notebook does seem ready to support the business activities that require extra protection despite the presence of a qualified facilities.
In general Lifebook S781 is fairly OK to handle daily office activities, adrift only a thin with ThinkPad Edge E420 a fairly classmates. Although the onboard Intel HD graphics chip is less fierce, we consider its performance enough just to run light 3D gaming. Under normal conditions, the battery life is fairly regular. If you want to make it last longer, you can activate the Eco mode to save energy.
