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.

The Fujitsu LifeBook A6030 stands out from the pack by featuring a speedy Intel Next Generation Centrino Duo processor (a first for the "A" series), excellent wireless performance, and Fujitsu's unique Point-and-Write technology that adds Tablet PC functionality to the touchpad. Priced at $1,349, the A6030 is an excellent productivity machine, but we wish it weighed less and lasted longer on a charge.
Weighing in at a hefty 6.6 pounds, the A6030 sports a plain metallic-gray color and a spacious, spill-resistant keyboard that makes typing a smooth, pleasurable experience. Above the keyboard are two quick-launch buttons, My Home and Web Search, for quickly accessing a user-defined homepage and search engine. Adjacent to these are two volume keys and three additional programmable buttons that come premapped to boot up Calculator, Notepad, and Windows Mobility Center.

You can use the Fujitsu LifeBook A6030's touchpad as a pointer and as a small writing pad. It won't replace a full-size tablet screen, but it's great for occasionally storing quick handwritten notes or drawings.
Although the dark-silver Fujitsu LifeBook A6030's battery life is disappointingly short, the unit is generously equipped for the price. The optional dual-purpose touchpad, which Fujitsu calls the Point and Write Pad, is the Fujitsu LifeBook A6030's most interesting feature. It lets you write handwritten notes within an area of the touchpad, using the bundled stylus and pen-input software. What you write appears on an input line on the notebook's screen. (Unlike a tablet PC, the Fujitsu LifeBook A6030 doesn't have a screen that you can write on.) We found that taking notes was laborious at first;

The boxy, slate-gray Fujitsu LifeBook A6030 didn't exactly catch our eye when it rolled into our offices. But after spending a little time with the machine, we found something in the laptop to please every type of user. The laptop's 15.4-inch display is a delight for movie-watchers (though the reflective screen coating might turn off some users), and its full-size keyboard will please productivity hounds. Tech fiends will be fascinated (or possibly confounded) by the A6030's unique touch pad, while speed demons will appreciate the laptop's competitive benchmark performance. And accounting types will love that the $1,449 LifeBook A6030 costs less than similar systems, such as the HP Pavilion dv6500t and the Sony VAIO FZ180E. The LifeBook A6030 is not without flaws--for example, it lacks a Webcam for video chats and its battery life, while acceptable, could be longer.

Compared with the rounded edges and glossy black exteriors of other laptops in our sub-$1,000 roundup, the Fujitsu LifeBook A6110 looks decidedly square. We're willing to look past the boxy design--indeed, we have in the past--because the LifeBook A series offers one of the most thorough feature sets available in a mainstream laptop. But you'll have to look past more than square edges with the $999 LifeBook A6110; the laptop's scores on our performance benchmarks ranged from top of its class to bottom of the pile, and it barely survived an hour and a half on our battery drain tests. If you have $1,000 to spend and want a sleekly designed laptop, look to the Gateway M-1618 or the Sony VAIO CR120; if you want the fastest performance of our low-cost systems, look to the Lenovo 3000 N200.

There’s much to like about the Fujitsu LifeBook A6120. It offers good speed for the price, strong Wi-Fi performance, a spacious hard drive, and more durability features than you’d find on most budget notebooks. For the same price, though, the 14.1-inch Gateway T-6828 offers a slimmer, more stylish design, a larger hard drive, 802.11n wireless, and comparable performance, though you’ll give up some screen real estate. If you want a larger screen, the A6120 is a strong contender.

The Fujitsu LifeBook A6120 is a good performer, carries a reasonable price tag, and comes with most of the features you'd expect from a well-rounded machine--except good battery life. The A6120 doesn't win the laurel crown in any particular category, but it gets enough right at the right price to rate as a good (not great) notebook.

The Fujitsu LifeBook A6120 ($1,369 direct, as tested) is a classic mainstream laptop, geared toward general-purpose users with a sensible spending limit. It comes with Intel 's newest-generation processor (code-named Penryn), an abundance of RAM, and features few can complain about. Furthermore, Fujitsu 's direct channel, where customers can add and subtract features as they please, is as intuitive as buying a laptop from Dell 's or HP's Web site. It's not the sexiest mainstream laptop, but the A6120 goes with Intel's latest technology and has a wide selection of features.

Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall, the Fujitsu LifeBook A6120 is a solid notebook with good performance and some nice features. The abundance of USB ports and the combionation of a PC Card slot and ExpressCard slot mean this notebook has plenty of room for external expansion. Although the A6120 isn't a gaming machine, the Penryn processor can handle everyday computing tasks with ease. If the awkward speaker placement and overall thickness and weight don't bother you then this notebook makes an excellent choice. In short, the LifeBook A6120 is a dependable workhorse of a notebook but lacks the flashy features found on most consumer notebooks.

Fujitsu LifeBook A1110 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Fujitsu A1110 would be a great deal if it was $400 less than the current price of $999 for the configuration we reviewed. It offers a basic desktop replacement form-factor with a midrange processor and integrated graphics, which is the starting configuration for many budget notebook models. The design could be improved in many areas, but it does have a colorful lid which gives it a bit of a facelift. Build quality could be improved across the board with flexible plastic over the screen and palmrest. From what we have seen Fujitsu really needs to improve the design of this consumer notebook and rethink their pricing structure, especially now with the slumping economy.

Competing in the budget laptop market is hard, what with the cut-throat competition from giants like Dell and HP and the countless low-priced models being offered. The A1110 would fare better against the competition had Fujitsu spent more time designing a sleeker-looking chassis.

Fujitsu-Siemens reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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

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.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.

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.

T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. 

T8100: Former mid-range Core 2 Duo based on the Penryn core that features FSB800 and VT-x virtualization functions.

P8400:

Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).

T5800: Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.


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.


2.9 kg:

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

3.1 kg:


71.8%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
