Reviews for the Fujitsu LifeBook AH530
The chassis is a typical size and, at 2.5kg, is of average weight. However, the 172-minute battery life hampers portability. You'll need to pack the power charger on trips. Still, it's a firm chassis with a particularly solid lid, so can survive a few knocks on the road. The plain black design is very functional, especially compared to the likes of the Medion, but it's also good at hiding smudges and fingerprints.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
