Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook T730

Fujitsu - LIFEBOOK T730 review
Source: IT Reviews English
The Fujitsu LIFEBOOK T730 is not an inexpensive Tablet PC but it is well made and we like the finger touch features on the screen. The build is good, while battery life acceptable but not outstanding.

Heavy for a 12in notebook and not as fast as a tablet, the Lifebook T730 no longer makes the case for a convertible.

60% Fujitsu Lifebook T730 laptop/tablet review
Source: Computing English

The Lifebook T730 is the latest product that aims to mash together the tablet and laptop formats. While Fujitsu's attempt is certainly a competent device, there are some key areas where it could be improved. This Fujitsu hybrid laptop offers an immersive experience with both finger- and stylus-based inputs. However, the poor display and keyboard let the device down badly. Users willing to fork out more may want to check out the Motion Computing.

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.


350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for 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".


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
