First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Best Fujitsu LifeBook notebooks of 2010
- — 15 November, 2010 14:20
Fujitsu is one of the few remaining companies in the world that designs and manufactures its own notebooks from the ground up. Its LifeBook products are split up into various series: Affinity, or A Series, which are the company's entry-level 15in notebooks; Excellence, or E Series, which are 15in performance notebooks; Personality, or P Series, which are 12in performance notebooks; Sophistication, or S Series, which are stylish 13in and 14in performance notebooks; Transcend, or T Series, which are tablet-convertible PCs; and Urban, or U Series, which are 3G-capable ultramobile PCs.
Fujitsu is one of the leading brands in the tablet-convertible PC space (its T Series) and it's also a player in the ultramobile PC space (its U Series). It's one of the companies we name first when we're asked which notebook companies are most innovative; this is because of products like the uber-small LifeBook UH900 and the TH700 dual-digitiser tablet PC.
In general, what you can expect from a Fujitsu notebook is good build quality, plenty of features and lots of style, but also a high price tag (although the company has recently released better value products). This round-up includes all of the Fujitsu LifeBook notebook reviews we've conducted this year, including the afore-mentioned LifeBook UH900 tablet-convertible LifeBook TH700.
8 / 8
The Fujitsu LifeBook SH530 is a good 13in, Intel Core i5-based notebook overall -- but a less glossy design, a better keyboard layout and 4GB of RAM would make it a great notebook. We like the portability of the SH530, as well as the way it looks, and it has enough CPU power for tough multimedia tasks in addition to everyday office tasks.
