    Have you got touch-screen on your U727?

    btw, Porsche Design just released a 2in1 with stylus :-D

    Yes

    I commented in the thread. I already knew, but it only has 16GB of memory so not something I would have even considered at this point.

    Just a quick follow up. So far, I really like the U727. It's been on two road trips (one short, one long), and as a portable VM machine with 32GB of RAM and 2TB built in, it's great. I've already nearly filled up the internal drive. The size/weight/power ratio is on point. The screen is surprisingly good, and no complaints with the touch aspect. I wish it had pen input, but I'll take 32GB over pen enabled. Having a more traditional laptop form vs. the Z Canvas has been nice on planes. I've presented quite a bit with it and have done both VGA out as well as DP-->HDMI via an adapter. It's all worked like a champ.

    Build quality is excellent. It's not as quiet as the ZC, but it's pretty close. I don't hear the fan very much and if so, it's never sustained. The 7600U is capable, and even with over 10 VMs running, I don't feel it's lagging so in that way , I really don't miss the guts of the ZC like I thought I would.

    The keyboard is also surprisingly good. I do a lot of typing and it's very comfortable. The trackpad isn't bad, and it's nice having real buttons not just the tap stuff. It's also nice not to have to worry about the keyboard running out of charge.

    The WiFi is also better than the ZC, but that's not surprising given it's two years newer.

    My only complaint really is the battery. Battery life is a little better than the Z Canvas, but not amazing. I need to actually call Fujitsu. According to Battery Bar, I've already got .6% wear and I've mainly been charging to 80%. I've never seen that before in a laptop. I'm wondering if something weird is going on.

    So if you're looking at one of the other 7x7 Fujitsu machines, I'd say they got more right than wrong and my only concern is laid out above.

    Just finished up a call with Fujitsu tech support. They couldn't have been nicer. To start we're just going to see if I have a defective battery and are sending one overnight. If that isn't the issue, things will escalate. I've had some crap customer service experiences, but this has been really good. Makes me glad I went with the U727.

    Good to hear from you. I think I will get the U757, since it holds 2 internal SSDs and has HDMI build-in.

    the new T937 is a winner.

    I was just about to post that video. and jiyu711 beat me to it! :)

    Here is why the T937 is a winner:

    1. good battery life and additional bridge battery.
    2. low weight starting at 2.85 lbs (vs. 3.5 lbs for the T936). By going to Wacom AES technology as well as updated kaby lake CPU, they were able to reduce the weight which is GREAT.
    3. Wacom AES pen and silo on unit. Wacom stylus is battery free and the pen is a decent size.
    4. double right / left click buttons on the trackpad. this is HUGE difference for accuracy right or left clicking.
    5. 16:9 aspect ratio is better for business professionals / coders / typing. 16:9 gives you more wider screen space. for me, i code and do other things that would make 3:2 worse for me.

    the Thinkpad Yoga's have horrible battery life. not sure why Lenovo can't get the battery life right. We shall see how the thinkpad x1 yoga 2nd generation with kaby lake does. but so far. all the thinkpad yoga's have 4-5 hrs battery life which is horrendous.

    the T937 is the 2-in-1 to get for sure. I love Wacom EMR, but the trade-offs here are well worth it for the Wacom AES technology.

    It's got a rechargeable battery and it charges when it's in the silo.

    Despite the T937's many specialized features (LTE, the most ports out of any device in its class) it's not worth the price premium.

    I am not 100% sure its AES. I'm guessing because of the significant reduction of weight of the T937 vs the T936.
    I am also assuming the silo stored stylus has a built in rechargable battery (just like the Thinkpad yoga's).

    If it is infact EMR, even better! this is even more of a winner! :)

    hi ativQ,

    low weight, long battery life and right / left click trackpad buttons is worth an extra $800 to $1000 if you plan on keeping this for 5+ year or more.

    This looks like the next coming of the T902 which still has a cult following that every other T model didnt have since then.
