Business-to-go. The Fujitsu Lifebook S760 tries balancing a reasonable battery life with a vast connectivity in a small, mobile power book for the modern businessperson.

The Fujitsu LifeBook S760 is designed for business users who need a laptop that combines portability with fast performance. Priced at around £850, this 13.3-inch ultra-portable comes installed with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Professional, rather than the Home Premium edition you'll find on the majority of consumer laptops. It's not the sexiest ultra-portable laptop around, but the 13.3-inch Fujitsu LifeBook S760 impresses with its combination of power and portability.

Fujitsu was one of the first to use the latest low-voltage Intel Core i7 processor for its LifeBook P770 laptop, which delivered impressive performance and battery life.

Save for its short battery life (a big drawback indeed), the Fujitsu LifeBook S760 is a versatile notebook you can take anywhere, thanks to its small, durable design and surprisingly powerful graphics performance. Unfortunately, road warriors can find twice the endurance and a slicker design elsewhere for less money. If you can live without the Nvidia GPU muscle, get the reasonably priced Express Buy $1,319 version of the S760, whose power-efficent Intel HD Graphics will give you more juice.

The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK S760 is a serviceable, neat, well constructed notebook. It has enough oomph to meet many people's needs, though if you bump up to the top of the range specs you are looking at a considerable outlay.

REVIEW: Fujitsu LifeBook S760
Source: BCW - Business Computing World English
Fujitsu’s LifeBook S760 is a very nice looking, well-built laptop with some high-end specifications and good features for the regular traveller. Its spill resistant keyboard is a pleasure to use, and the quirky ScrollWheel is a ‘take it or leave it’ feature which you can simply ignore if it does not feel right to you. It may, though prove a useful ice-breaker in some client meetings. And you might not want to use the Web camera software in view of clients, unless you have preconfigured it to remove some of the more consumer-focussed elements.

Keeping all the factors in mind, especially the modest feature set, at Rs.1,02,500, we’d say this laptop is overpriced. There are better options available out there. So unless you really like the look of it, which is different from other laptops, there’s little reason for you to rave over this laptop.

Fujitsu's Lifebook S760 is an ultraportable aimed at corporate buyers, and is styled a bit more conservatively than many recent laptop models. Fujitsu's Lifebook S760 is a good all-rounder that ticks all the boxes for a corporate laptop. While its design looks a little conservative, it packs a decent amount of processing power into a portable package and has good connectivity and expansion options. The only downside is the need to watch the power consumption when running on batteries.

80% Review Fujitsu Lifebook S710 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Monochrome Business. Fujitsu's Lifebooks have always been favored by business people and ambitioned private users because of their reliability. With the Lifebook S710, the Japanese have now launched a 14 inch notebook onto the market that shouldn't lack power despite its small size. Read in our review if this symbiosis of a compact case and strong processor can work smoothly.

Ultimately, the Lifebook S710 is too flawed for us to recommend. Its home and office performance is excellent, but the underpowered graphics, limited features and poor build quality are too pronounced at such a high price. You can find much better laptops for your money.

Fujitsu's LifeBook S710 makes a perfectly acceptable compact laptop system that balances size and performance for business users. Features such as the spill resistant keyboard, wide range of peripheral ports and a spill resistant keyboard are nice additions. The problem is that it assumes that corporate users don't need 64-bit software compatibility, dedicated graphics or even much RAM for their work.

The Fujitsu LifeBook S710 is aimed at business users who need a powerful laptop to use on the move. It packs a muscular i5 processor into its small 14-inch chassis, but it's relatively pricey at £940. The 14-inch Fujitsu LifeBook S710 puts forward a good performance and an impressive line-up of ports, but it's let down by its spongy keyboard and bland design.

Fujitsu's LifeBook S751 is certainly not going to be winning any design awards but this isn't something that matters a much to a corporate buyer. What this laptop does do well is offer a fairly solid performing business class laptop for $999. Sure, it does lack some of the features typically found in many competing laptops but they probably won't be something that many will need often.

For $1,079, the Fujitsu LifeBook S751 offers great performance and plenty of business perks. We wish this notebook had a bit more style, but overall it's a good value. For about $300 more, you can splurge on the Dell Latitude E6420, which offers better performance and battery life in a more attractive package. But if you're keeping an eye on the bottom line, the LifeBook S751 is a solid choice.

Fujitsu Lifebook S761 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
In power saving mode the Lifebook S761 gave nine hours 20 minutes, and in moderate usage tests the battery topped 6hrs 30 mins. A video-looping test gave six hours good service, but absolute flat-out the notebook gave a mere one hour 10 minutes. In combination with a well-padded carry bag the Fujitsu Lifebook S761 is an excellent business machine with superb battery life.

There's no doubt that the Fujistu LifeBook S761 is a good laptop: it's very well built, has a good set of features and a strong configuration, it's easy to maintain and, most importantly, it's comfortable to use. However, we think it could be a more polished product; a lot of the preinstalled software doesn't look good, and there is also so much you really have to spend a lot of time getting to know it all.

Fujitsu's LifeBook S761 is a top laptop, that's for sure. It's small and light, yet well built and highly specced. We like it a lot but think it could use an SSD drive and a little less (or improved) pre-installed software.

Enduring. Fujitsu wants to lure mobile computer workers into buying its new 13.3-inch Lifebook S904 laptop. In addition to a low weight, the computer features an IGZO-WQHD screen, a docking port, and a 3G/LTE module. Beyond that, the company also promises a battery runtime of up to 24 hours and includes a three-year warranty. Sounds too good to be true?

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".


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

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.

Intel HD Graphics (Sandy Bridge): Processor graphics card which is integrated in the Sandy Bridge Pentium and Celeron processors. Similar to the desktop HD Graphics 2000 and not related to the old Arrandale processor graphics with the same name.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

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

Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Intel HD Graphics 4400:

ULV integrated GPU (GT2) with 20 EUs found on certain Haswell CPU models.

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


Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

620M:

The Core i7-620M is the fastest Dual-Core CPU for laptops (at the time of introduction in Q1 2010). The 620M clocks betwenn 2.66 and 3.33 GHz due to the Turbo Mode and because of Hyperthreading, 4 threads are executed simultaneously. In the package, Intel also included a second die with an integrated GPU (GMA HD) and a memory controller. Therefore, the TDP of 35 Watt of the whole package is still quite good.

2620M: Very fast Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

3612QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.1 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. The speciality of the i7-3612QM is the low TDP of 35 Watt compared to 45 Watt of the other Ivy Bridge quad core CPUs (e.g. 3610QM).

4600U:

A Haswell-based ULV dual-core processor clocked at 2.1 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4400 and a dual-channel DDR3 memory controller.

Intel Core i5:

520M:

The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

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).


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display 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, especially with high resolutions.

14.0: 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


1.5 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.

2.2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


77.73%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
