All this means that, despite excellent battery life, we’re not convinced by the P8010. If you’re after a truly luxurious business laptop, choose the pricier but also far superior Lenovo X300.

However, the light weight results in an insubstantial specification. The processor is one of the weakest on test: an Intel Core 2 Duo SL7100 that runs at a mere 1.2GHz. While this does result in impressively low power demands (a 17W TDP to be precise), it also limits speed. All this means that, despite excellent battery life, we’re not convinced by the P8010. If you’re after a truly luxurious business laptop, choose the pricier but also far superior Lenovo X300.

The Fujitsu was somewhat limited in our performance tests by its relatively slow 1.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SL7100 CPU. However, the P8010 wasn’t held back by its hard drive, which is a 5,400 RPM SATA model, and the equal of the drives in the best performers in this ultraportable notebook roundup.

Overall, Fujitsu has an interesting offering in their P8010 ultraportable, though it was (and still isn’t) the clear pick in its category. If you absolutely need an optical drive and you want a 12-inch system it could be a good choice, but there is enough competition out there that for most people it won’t be the way to go, even before you factor in the availability of newer systems. There is a lot to like about the P8010, but it is missing a few obvious features and the build quality could be improved, so given the price (currently about $1600-2000) buyers should give a good look at the competition first. That said, I’m looking forward to seeing what Fujitsu brings to market with the next model.

Overall, the FSC Lifebook P8010 manages to more than live up to expectations. Its battery life is great, the screen impressive and if Fujitsu Siemens can improve on the keyboard, this could well be a winning laptop.

Performance is good, discounting games, and although it's expensive it could justify its price tag if you need a built-in optical drive. The Lifebook P8010 is a great little laptop for the mobile worker, especially once you take into account its long battery life and built in 3G connectivity.

It's difficult to recommend the LifeBook P8010. It ticks most of the boxes required to make a good ultraportable, but it's simply too expensive in comparison to things like the MacBook Air. Business users might find some of its features useful, but for the rest of us, something like the Eee PC 1000 will do just fine.

The ultra-portable business laptop market has undergone a huge shake-up in recent months, with a triple-release of outstanding new products: the Lenovo X300, MacBook Air and updated version of Sony's TZ series with the TZ31MN. All three of these laptop brought decent performance, impressively thin chassis and low weight, and all will attract jealous stares in the boardroom. Competing with Sony, Lenovo and Apple is no easy task, as this overpriced and unremarkable ultraportable proves.

While the Fujitsu LifeBook P8010 is an adorably cute ultraportable, it doesn't pack much in the way of power.

The Fujitsu LifeBook P8010 has almost everything a road warrior could want in an ultraportable—a sleek, lightweight design with a built-in DVD burner, long battery life, and good productivity performance. If you can live with a slightly cramped keyboard, you’ll be satisfied with this lightweight notebook.

The LifeBook P8010 is a worthy upgrade to last year's ultraportable LifeBook, the P7230. Most importantly, it replaces the single-core processor with a low-voltage Core 2 Duo chip. Its dimensions swell slightly to accommodate a bigger 12-inch screen, but it still weighs in at a hair under 3 pounds. Call it the unassuming ultraportable. The Fujitsu LifeBook P8010 shuns attention-grabbing thinness and solid-state drives for a solid feature set for business travelers.

The Fujitsu P8010 is a great performer when it comes to battery life, system performance, and cool temperatures. When you look at the build quality and design, it's a completely different picture, that doesn't stack up against older Fujitsu business notebooks. Body and chassis flex is greater than we would expect from a notebook in this price range. If you can look past the build quality, it is an excellent notebook in terms of its capabilities.

Fujitsu's LifeBook P8010 is an affordable workhorse--it cost $1899 at the time of testing--but you'll need to equip it with more RAM to make it an adequate performer. And to those prospective buyers with oversize hands: Consider yourself warned.

Packing an optical drive and terrific battery life into a 2.8-pound frame isn't easy, but this formula has been the cornerstone of the Fujitsu LifeBook P Series for several years. The Fujitsu LifeBook P8010 is part of a select group of laptops that integrate an optical drive and weigh less than 3 pounds. But Fujitsu needs to up its game by putting in a larger keyboard and faster components.

Fujitsu's once trend setting P series of ultraportable notebooks has added some extra size that makes it much more comfortable to use than previous models, but it comes at the expensive of note being as innovative and unique as it once was.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that 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.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
