Reviews for the Fujitsu LifeBook T580

85% Review Fujitsu LifeBook T580 Convertible | Notebookcheck
Versatility in Person? Convertibles aim to fuse every advantage of a notebook with that of a pure tablet computer in order to achieve an optimum workflow according to the application field. Fujitsu equips its current Lifebook T580 with cutting edge technology and has to prove its potential in the following review.

For users seeking a feature-packed ultraportable convertible with pen input, the LifeBook T580 is a pretty good option. However, the short battery life makes this $1,399 configuration difficult to recommend. Fujitsu should have included the larger battery at this price. For $300 less, the Gigabyte T1125N performs better and lasts longer on a charge, though it doesn't feature a pen. If you do decide to splurge on this laptop-tablet combo, be sure to get the larger six-cell battery. Or, if you don't need Core i5 power, get the $999 configuration of the T580 with a Core i3 processor and six-cell battery.

70% The Fujitsu Tablet strikes again

So my advice is that unless you're looking for a Tablet PC for a specific use - say, if you're a company that requires the workforce to input a lot of information on the go - you're better off looking around elsewhere.

Performance is limited by the low-power CPU and integrated graphics, but the convertible netbook works well for the usual productivity tasks and some online streaming video watching. The integrated Intel graphics definitely rule out any 3D gaming, but a netbook shouldn't really be used for that anyway. The SSD hard drive does speed up the system a little bit and you also get better battery life. Expect to get about 5-6 hours of battery life with this computer.

The biggest down side, though, is the price. The base configuration, which includes 32-bit Windows 7, a fairly slow CPU, 4GB of RAM, and the 320GB hard drive, is nearly £1000. That's a really steep price for adding a touch interface. In the end, this is a pretty intriguing system, but it needs to be slimmed down - both in bulk and in cost - to compete in a world of netbooks and iPads.

Fujitsu - Lifebook T580 review
Source: IT Reviews English
While having some merits, the Fujitsu Lifebook T580 falls between stools. It's too heavy to be truly portable, but still a little small for practical work-based use - and somewhat lacking in features for most home users.

The Lifebook T580 is a highly portable laptop and its ability to convert into a tablet is neat. However, the lack of dedicated touch software and some minor limitations hold it back.

If you can't decide whether you should get a new laptop or opt for a tablet instead, maybe the Fujitsu LifeBook T580 could be the answer. 10.1-inch Fujitsu LifeBook T580 is a decent ultra-portable laptop, but it's less successful when you twist the screen and put it into tablet mode, due to its small screen and chunky dimensions.

The Lifebook T580 brings the convertible tablet down to a netbook form factor, but its default screen resolution makes it tricky to use the touch screen reliably, and the device is a little heavy for prolonged use holding in one hand. However, for users needing tablet and laptop functionality, the T580 offers these in a more portable format than most current convertible designs.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


560UM:

The Core i5-560UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops. Using Turbo Boost it can be clocked with up to 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.48 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Fujitsu: Fujitsu, founded 1935, is a Japanese company specializing in semiconductors, air conditioners, computers (supercomputers, personal computers, servers), telecommunications, and services, and is headquartered in Tokyo. Fujitsu employs around 160,000 people and has 500 subsidiary companies. The partnership with Siemens AG was established in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers, one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".


70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
