The Fujitsu Lifebook T937 is a convertible system which specifically designed for high end users. It does not only sport of high specifications, but the manufacture also includes it with different kinds of interesting accessories like docking and stylus pen. The security then is a big matter considering this is a business machine. There are TPM, smart card reader, and fingerprint scanner for allowing you to have more security on controlling and accessing your system. The device is available for under 1500 dollars and looks very competitive in comparable with Dell XPS or Lenovo Yoga in term of pricing and specifications.
Talking about specifications, you would find of Intel I5 7th generation, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. The CPU performance is great, but unfortunately it misses of discrete GPU which needed by some users for doing more intense works. I have taken look into it for some weeks now and I think the T937 has everything as I need although I am going to say few bad things from it. That is what we are going to talk about here. Let’s see how it worth for our budget we spend here.
Design and Connectivity
The design looks very simple, but at the same time feels really strong. The chassis is built from magnesium alloy material and then covered in silver and black finishing. Magnesium is well known for its quality and for this case, both of stability and durability are impressive. Similarly like other 2 in 1 system, you can flip the screen into 360 degree and using it in different modes. Interestingly, we can also rotate the screen into 180 degree although I don’t really find this feature as not so useful. Fujitsu has featured it for couple of years and people seems just not really interested into it. At this case, the screen is anchored at the center and I want to say this part should be more durable.
As result as you can rotate the screen sometimes we have to adjust it into the right position or the lid won’t close nicely as expect. Not a big problem, but worth mentioning here. As for features and connectivity, the ports selections are great although it misses of Thunderbolt 3 support. There are two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB type-C which supports of charging through battery pack. Then, we have of RJ45, HDMI, and VGA port. The overall design and everything are promising although feels so similar on what competitors offer.back to menu ↑
Display and Input
I am so surprised the display quality is bit underwhelming considering its little brother, the U937 has a very crisp and bright display. They use of IPS 13 inch panel and it only covers of 62 percent of SRGB color and getting of 221 nits of brightness. Both of brightness and color accuracy are bad in my opinion although it’s fully usable especially when you do not really care about quality here. I could accept of low color accuracy here, but having a better brightness support is necessary since people will often go traveling and use it along their travel. It means we might use it outdoor and indoor. 221 nits is an issue in outdoor as it forces to set the brightness level into the maximum and easily kills the battery.
As for the input, the keyboard is just fine although the stroke is low due its flat build and surface. I manage to pull myself on using it without any issue although the keys are bit hardened at this case. The noises are thankfully fine and probably won’t annoy people around of you. There is also a two levels of backlit support which works great here. The keyboard is fine and offers better experience than its screen.

|Memory||8GB DDR Memory|
Performance and Battery
The hardware specification is pretty much sufficient for covering small and medium works included of browsing, office editing, and rarely editing video and photo. The system is powered by Intel I5 7200U from 7th generation and clocked at 2.5 GHz dual core CPU. It might be a dual core CPU, but it’s supported by hyper threading and means it can handle multi task works at the same time. The performance is never being an issue as I tested it with Cinebench it successfully of reaching higher clock rate in very good duration. It does not suffer of thermal issue especially when seeing the processor only takes around 15 TDP watts. Keep in mind, the RAM and storage are not upgradable here, but the battery for some reasons is swappable easily here.
Thanks to dim screen and moderate battery capacity, the battery lasts longer than I expect before. It lasts for 8 to 9 hours for doing light things like streaming movies and editing document. I also leave the laptop in sleep mode for a day and it basically takes around 17 hours until it’s completely dead. I have of 10000 mAh battery pack and I can charge it once every time I need it through the type-C port. This feature is very usable when you need more battery during some important cases.back to menu ↑
The Lifebook T937 leaves a good impression even though some parts are not looking so good here. The hardware quality are great and typical of Japanese company, but sadly the screen quality might hold people of getting it considering the most important part in convertible system is the screen panel. For the other parts like keyboard and battery I have no issue and looking good here. The screen is the only consideration before you ready to take it. The choice is yours, so feel free to take any consideration about it. Thank you very much for reading the article and see you again next time.
