Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook P1620

The Fujitsu LifeBook P1620 makes a few notable improvements on its predecessor, but a new breed of cheaper mini-laptops are on the horizon, making this ideal only for heavy tablet users, who may prefer a full-size tablet.

The Fujitsu LifeBook P1620 packs more than enough functionality and usability to justify paying more than two grand. Consumers interested in a tiny tablet on a budget should probably gravitate toward the $999 LifeBook U810—provided you’re willing to use a smaller 5.6-inch display—but we highly recommend this more versatile and secure convertible for road warriors and field workers.

Although the Fujitsu Lifebook P1620 and Macbook Air aren’t marketed as direct competitors with each other, their light weight and convenient sizes certainly encourage comparison. In the final analysis, the Fujitsu Lifebook P1620 is, to our eyes, a more useful and utilitarian notebook than Apple’s Macbook Air. While the Fujitsu Lifebook P1620 is too thick to fit in a manila envelope, it’s lighter, smaller, arguably easier to pack and stow than the Macbook Air and offers a lot more ports and connectivity options. The Macbook Air, on the other hand, appears to be more aesthetically pleasing than the Lifebook, has a larger display and is available with a faster processor. But its lack of hardware adaptability, connectivity options and the ability to change the battery limits its usefulness in comparison to the Fujitsu Lifebook P1620.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

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 display diagonal is quite small for tablets.

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.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.

79%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
