Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook NH570

70% Fujitsu LifeBook NH570
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Fujitsu LifeBook NH570 has competitive specs and pricing. For most home computer users who want the luxury of a desktop-sized screen but also want to be able to move their computer around occasionally, the LifeBook NH570 can handle most tasks with ease including video streaming (except streaming Hulu) and DVD playback. It can handle most demanding games just fine, though for weekend LAN partygoers who require more graphics power and have the cash, the Toshiba Qosmio X505 offers more expensive models with more CPU and graphics power and even the similarly priced X505-Q860 has a superior GPU. We like the audio quality, the wide viewing angle and the spill resistant keyboard on the Fujitsu, and it’s thinner and lighter than the Toshiba Qosmio X505.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M: The Nvidia GeForce GT 330M is the successor of the GT 230M and technically just a slightly higher clocked GT 240M (but it should still maintain the power envelope of the GT 230M as the naming suggests).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

3.6 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in 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".


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
