70% Fujitsu LifeBook N6460 laptop PC

Like its predecessor, the LifeBook N6420, Fujitsu's new flagship desktop replacement laptop spoils graphics professionals with a stunning work environment and tons of storage. But the newer Fujitsu LifeBook N6460 is also a better entertainment unit. If a top-shelf desktop replacement with a superb screen is what you're after, you can't go too wrong with the Fujitsu LifeBook N6460.

40% Fujitsu LifeBook N6470 Desktop Replacement Laptop
Source: Comp Reviews English
Fujitsu's LifeBook N6470 desktop replacement laptop is designed as a mobile mulotimedia platform. This includes a Blu-ray compatible optical drive for playing back high definition movies and an ExpressCard HDTV tuner card. The problem is that the display doesn't truly support the full 1080p making it a less than desirable mobile media platform.

We were surprised at how much we like the Fujitsu LifeBook N6470. The unassuming matte-black case on this 17-inch desktop replacement doesn't exactly look luxe, and it lacks such headline-grabbing features as SLI graphics and a high-definition optical drive. Well-rounded in both features and performance, the large Fujitsu LifeBook N6470 combines computer and entertainment hub in one desktop-replacement laptop.

Fujitsu LifeBook N6470 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
While overall performance numbers on the LifeBook more than held their own, this notebook is largely a case of a good specs sheet being let down by a lackluster user experience. With battery life that's little short of awful, an unpleasant keyboard, lots of flex and a generally unappealing look and feel, the N6470 seems to offset its strong characteristics (beautiful screen, quick processor and plenty of RAM, multimedia capabilities) with some noteworthy irritations and disappointments. If the N6470 cost $500 less, it would be much easier to overlook many of these warts, but at its current price there are simply too many good options out there.

One screen wasn't enough for Fujitsu. The company just had to tack on a second, smaller screen and create a sort of odd mashup with its Fujitsu Lifebook N7010 laptop. The screens make this laptop unique enough to stand apart from a quickly-growing crowd of 16-inch models - but if you're buying the Fujitsu Lifebook N7010, sign up for a carpal tunnel specialist, because of the undersized keyboard.

This can't be right. Fujitsu says its new desktop replacement notebook has a cinematic 16:9-aspect-ratio screen for watching high-definition videos or Blu-ray movies. This LCD divides out to 16:9 all right, but its resolution is too low. And it's only 4 inches big, for goodness sake, you need to squint to see the actors and-- Oh. Sorry. Our bad. We were looking at the wrong screen. The other one is a good 16 inches diagonally. The Blu-ray player works fine with it.

Overall, the LifeBook N7010 strikes us as a solid if slightly pricey alternative to a desktop, especially — thanks to the Blu-ray player and HDMI port — if there's home entertainment as well as office work on the agenda. The touch zone is too small to boost productivity in the way that, say, the retractable, 10.6-inch second screen of Lenovo's ThinkPad W700ds is, but it's more fun than the usual strip of two or three multimedia keys or customizable buttons.

The N7010 is an interesting arrival on the consumer multimedia scene. It doesn’t deliver the sort of performance and some of the perks available in similar class books from the likes of HP and Acer, but the Touch Zone display does sweeten the pot—especially for video messaging junkies. At the very least, it makes this LifeBook worth a look the next time you’re browsing laptops at your local electronics retailer.

Consumers have a number of choices when it comes to 16-inch, 16:9 ratio notebooks these days—some as low as $999. While the Fujitsu LifeBook N7010 is $500 more, it provides a unique second 4-inch touch display, solid everyday performance, and impressive Blu-ray playback. The touchscreen is an innovative feature and makes it easy to launch your favorite apps quickly. However, for its $1,500 price tag we wish the N7010’s graphics performance was above that of more affordable 16-inch systems, like the $999 Acer Aspire 6930G and Gateway MC Series. Nevertheless, if a cool second display with touch functionality and Blu-ray are features you’re lusting after, the Fujitsu LifeBook N7010 is a fun, one-of-a-kind multimedia notebook.

Fujitsu-Siemens reviews


Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops and performs in games much better than the Nvidia card.

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

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470: Faster clocked HD 3450 and successor of the HD 2400 XT but with DirectX 10.1 and due to the new 55nm process, higher clockspeeds. Avivo HD video functions allow the decoding of HD videos.

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


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.

T7500:

The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.

T8300: The Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 was at the time of announcement a fast dual-core CPU for laptops with 3 MB level 2 cache.

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).


16.0: 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. 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.

17.1: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

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


3.5 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.

4.6 kg:

This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.


67.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
