Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook PH530

60% Fujitsu Lifebook PH530 laptop review
Source: Computing English

Ultra-portable business laptop with impressive battery life to boot. A lightweight, competent laptop that will suit the travelling business user, the PH530 is an impressive device that has a good array of connectivity options and decent battery life. However, it's also fairly expensive and business users with undemanding needs may be better off opting for a netbook.

70% Fujitsu LifeBook PH530 review
Source: CNet English
The Fujitsu LifeBook PH530 impresses with its long battery life and reasonably fast performance. On the flip side, its consumer-focused design and reflective glossy screen seem somewhat at odds with its target market of business users. If you wish to mix business with pleasure it may be a good option, but serious road warriors should look elsewhere.

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.


330UM: The Core i3-330UM is a power efficient ultra low voltage processor for laptops without Turbo Boost and AES functions. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 166-500 MHz) and a DDR3-800 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 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".


67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
