Basic bundle. Typewriter, calculator, gaming machine, movie entertainment system, portable companion and survival artist. The 15 incher has something of everything, yet isn't outstanding in any single point. But: does it have to at a price of 550 euros? With courage for incompleteness to a round offer.

Although this is a basic laptop version, it is generally very good in terms of value for money, especially since you get 15.6" laptop that is much stronger than the average netbook, which is marginally cheaper. The configuration of this Lifebook model is one of the weaker, with a 2GHz Intel Pentium processor. This is dual-core processor from the basic offer of Sandy Bridge Intel’s generation and is designed for entry-level laptops as this one is. It comes with integrated graphics from Intel HD 2000 series, which means you should not expect much in terms of 3D performance, but for the basic tasks, it will be quite an adequate solution. 2GB of DDR3 memory is installed, it has 320GB hard drive and DVD burner. In addition to standard LAN adapter, there are also Wi-Fi (802.11n is supported) and Bluetooth 2.1.

Comment

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".

Fujitsu is a medium-sized laptop manufacturer, which did not belong to the global Top 10 in the last years. In the smartphone sector, Fujitsu does hardly play any role. The ratings are above-average in the reviews (as of 2016).


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M: Based on the GeForce GT 425M with slightly higher core clock speeds.

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


Intel Core i3:

2310M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.1 GHz and features the Turbo Boost 2.0 only for the graphics card (650/1100MHz).

Intel Core i5:

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).


» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.611 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


79.6%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
