The Fujitsu Stylistic Q702's technology closely resembles that of an Ultrabook. Our preview sample was based on a Intel Core i5-3427U. That is a lower power Intel Core i5 processor, 100 MHz faster than the Intel Core i5-3317U we commonly find in most Ultrabooks. The Intel Core i5-3427U is a dual-core processor with turbo to 2.8 GHz and 3 MB cache memory. Thanks to HyperThreading support the CPU appears as a quad-core processor to the operating system. Fujitsu already indicated the Fujitsu Stylistic Q702 will also be available with a Intel Core i3 3217U running at 1.8 GHz.
The Fujitsu Stylistic Q702's motherboard is built around an Intel QM77 chipset. This representative from Intel's corporate line of chipsets is compatible with Intel vPro, just like the Intel 82579LM gigabit controller used and the Intel Centrino 6205 802.11n WiFi adapter. Intel vPro is a set of technologies aimed at enabling simpler systems management for larger companies. An Infineon TPM completes the set of corporate features.
The wireless adapter, an Intel Centrino 6205, can work at both 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies at a maximum theoretical throughput of 300 Mbit/s, thanks to its dual antenna design. It is also compatible with Intel Wireless Display, which enables wireless connectivity to compatible television sets, projectors or separate WiDi adapters. It is remarkable that Fujitsu elected not to use the Centrino 6235, which would have offered Bluetooth as well. Instead, it opted for a Broadcom Bluetooth solution for the Stylistic Q702. There also is room for an optional built-in 3G or 4G modem.
An SSD provides storage, 128 gigabytes of it in our sample, but there will also be versions with 64 or 256 GB. The SSD was manufactured by a relative newcomer to that market, Hynix. The HFS128G3AMNM is an mSATA form factor device; optionally Fujitsu offers a version with built-in encryption.
