Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook S710

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.

Although it has great specs in the CPU and Storage department, the lack of a discreet GPU or a higher-res screen hinder the performance.

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.


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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.0":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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


2.15 kg:

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


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".


72%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
