The very first thing that anyone observe about the Fujitsu Lifebook UH572 is its slim body. Its slim like a tablet (almost) and powerful like a regular laptop. Its innovative style and the finish make it very elegant.

Let’s compare the UltraBook with some common day to day used items:

One of my favorite chocolates is Snickers. I love its blend of chocolate with a different variety of ingredients specially high blend of peanuts. At work, in the mid of the day, before the lunch break, if I feel short of calories (due to extra light breakfast) or at any time if I want some boast, it is one of my top choices.

Although evolution of technology is at a big rise, old toys/tools still help in some particular conditions. If you are into some lengthy and complex calculations, a solar powered table calculator by Casio is a useful companion.

Office Paper stand is a nice equipment to place and classify the frequently used document.

Yes, my UltraBook is one of my projects and I need to access it frequently.

In the last there is a special gift for the Lifebook fans. Try finding the UltraBook:

Security has been a hot topic since long. With more and more stuff going in digital form, along with it’s a lot of benefits it has its price. The highest of them is the security (I believe so). Here, we are going to talk about the Lifebook UH572 from security perspective.

Normally, there is a default plan/path and if required a backup plan. The UltraBook has gone one step ahead with three (main) levels of security:

  • Physical or Anti-Theft Security
  • Hardware or Device Security
  • Soft or Data Security

1. Physical or Anti-Theft Security

Lifebook has got a Kensington lock slot (or K-Slot as it is called in short). It is the primary anti-theft mechanism used these days for electronic devices. It is used to attach devices to their bases/stands to avoid theft. Details about K-Slot can be checked here: Wikipedia

Drawback:

The way it is easy to install, the same way it is easy to crack. It can even be picked using a cardboard. It is just an attempt to block from novices attacks.

2. Hardware or Device Security

If  someone happen to steal your Lifebook (God forbid but it could be a real situation), among many possibilities, one case is that if you have got your BIOS as well as hard disk password protected (yes, Lifebook provided with BOTH of these options), the person will try to open your machine and get some benefit from individual components.  Lifebook have got six T6 Torx. This is not a regular type of screw and its driver is commonly not available.

Drawback

The sad thing is T6 Trox screw driver, although not commonly available but it is not so hard to find.

3. Soft or Data Security

As it has been mentioned above that Lifebook is equipped with BOOT and HardDisk password, it also provides a new and wonderful feature Advanced Theft Protection aka ATP. It allows you to remotely perform operation on your machine like theft report, data deletion etc. You can read in more details about ATP at this link: Advanced Theft Protection(PDF File)

Final Thoughts

Even with all these layers of security, there are always some open holes that have to be considered. But, its a lot lot better to have a complex security instead of no security at all, at least in this way your chance/magnitude of loss is highly reduced.

Disclaimer: To make some thing secure, you should be aware of the possible breach points
