Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook A3120

75% Fujitsu LifeBook A3120
Source: PC World English
This consumer laptop has a unique touchpad and an attractive vanilla ice cream-colored case, but performance wanes under pressure. With such poor battery life, the LifeBook A3120 is a less-than-appealing choice for mobile warriors, and its speed is too sluggish to make it work as a desktop replacement. It's a looker, but its beauty is only skin deep.

In laptop design, white is the new black. But the Fujitsu LifeBook A3120 is no mere knock-off of the Apple MacBook; its pleasing pearl-white finish has a distinctive look all its own. We wish it lasted a bit longer on a charge, but the Fujitsu A3120 is a good Vista notebook with plenty of style and durability. And it offers a lot of features for the price.

ATI Radeon Xpress 1150: Faster clocked Xpress 1100 onboard graphics card with x300 core. Should run Vista Aero Glass fluently.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-56:

In 90nm (33W TDP) and 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.8 GHz. The TL-56 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
