Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook AH531

82% Review Fujitsu Lifebook AH531 Notebook | Notebookcheck
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.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

2.611 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
