1,600MHz Processor Memory Clock Speed
The Fujitsu Lifebook U745 supports a 1,600MHz processor memory clock speed which is faster than most laptops of a similar spec and age to it. Most similar spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as it support a 133MHz processor memory clock speed. This notebook PC also supports 1 and 333MHz processor memory clock speeds. Across all medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year the worst memory clock speeds supported by processor is 133MHz and the best is 1,866MHz.

At 8 gigabytes, the Lifebook U745 has a quite big internal memory compared to most of the other portable PCs that are a similar age to the Lifebook U745.

If this portable PC internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the ThinkPad T450[pl_2771075_price] (12GB), or the T450s[pl_3046986_price] (12GB) both from Lenovo.
+11 More reasons for
SSD Storage Medium
The Lifebook U745 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium across all laptops of this type and age.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of portable PC.
Other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper notebook PCs such as the DELL XPS 13[plb_2705334_price], the Asus UX301LA[plb_2960844_price], or the HP Elitebook 820 G2[plb_2886802_price].
Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth looking at include the Toshiba Tecra Z40[plb_2891833_price] (SSD).
Has a Front Camera
The Lifebook U745 has a front camera, as do most of the other notebook PCs of a similar type and age to the Lifebook U745.
There are a number of other notebook PCs with a front camera currently available that you might want to look at including the Toshiba Satellite P50-C[plb_2978047_price], or the Lenovo ThinkPad W550[plb_2783796_price] which is cheaper.
We compared this notebook PC to all the other notebook PCs with a front camera and we think the DELL Latitude 14 E7450[plb_2882102_price] is also worth considering.
L3 Processor Cache
This laptop has a L3 processor cache, which is the most commonly found processor cache on laptops of a similar age and spec to it.
802.11n WiFi Standard
This laptop has an 802.11b|802.11g|802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most commonly found WiFi standard on laptops of this age and type.
Has a Touch Sensitive Screen
The Lifebook U745 has a touch sensitive screen, which is unusual. Most of the other similar spec portable PCs that came out more than a year ago do not have a touch sensitive screen.
We compared all the other portable PCs which also have a touch sensitive screen to this laptop and we think the Latitude 14 E7450[pl_2882102_price], or the XPS 13 9343[pl_2829100_price] both from DELL or the Lenovo X1 Carbon[plb_3046926_price] is also worth considering.
The Fujitsu Lifebook U745 is quite light (only 1.6 kilograms) compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Lifebook U745. The lightest portable PC that was released around the same time as the Lifebook U745 is 940g heavy and the heaviest is 3.8kg.
If you are not worried about having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the Latitude 14 5000[pl_2719791_price] (1.8kg), or the Vostro 14 5000[pl_2428047_price] (1.5kg) both from DELL or the HP EliteBook 840[plb_2350979_price] (1.6kg) which is also cheaper.
Very Small Display Response Rise/fall
Medium processor core notebook PCs that came out more than a year ago have display response rise/falls of between 8ms and 350ms. At only 16 milliseconds, the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 has a quite small display response rise/fall compared to most of the other medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago.
Very Short Battery Recharge Time
At only 2 hours, the Lifebook U745 has a quite short battery recharge time compared to most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age. The average battery recharge time of medium processor core notebook PCs that are a comparable age to the Lifebook U745 is 3.9h.
The average width of comparable spec portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Lifebook U745 is 360mm, and the widths range from 28mm to 430mm.

4 Reasons Against
Does Not Have a Full-Size Keyboard
The Lifebook U745 does not have a full-size keyboard, unlike most of the other notebook PCs of this type and age which have a full-size keyboard.
There are a number of alternative portable PCs which also have a full-size keyboard which you might want to consider including the DELL Latitude 12 E7250[plb_2885455_price].
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The smallest total storage capacity of medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for more than a year is 16GB, the biggest is 2TB, and the average total storage capacity is 550GB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the Fujitsu Lifebook U745 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst similar spec notebook PCs of this age.
Laptops with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the L540[pl_2993337_price] (192GB), or the L450[pl_2932785_price] (192GB) both from Lenovo which also has a higher rating.
We checked 306 laptops of this age and type and they range in price from £149 to £3,405. We think that this notebook PC looks expensive compared to other laptops of this age and type.
Only 4 Bluetooth Version
This laptop supports a 4 Bluetooth version, which is the most frequently supported Bluetooth version on portable PCs of a similar type and age to it.
