Reviews for the Fujitsu LifeBook E736-0M87BPDE
Source: Techradar Archive.org version
We're in two minds with the E736. On paper, it is one of the best business laptops available, but it comes at a premium which makes this notebook hard to recommend, especially when its rivals offer a bit more of everything at a much, much lower price.

Model: The Fujitsu LifeBook E736-0M87BPDE is a mid-range laptop. Thanks to an Intel Core i7-6600U CPU, 16 GB DDR4 RAM, a 512 GB SSD and an Intel HD Graphics 520, the laptop is suitable for business usage. The maximum supported RAM capacity is 32 GB. Its 13.3-inch anti-glare IGZO display features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. To make it even better for business usage on the go, it weighs from 1.6 kg at a dimension of 321 x 228 x 27 mm, which is very lightweight. In addition, it delivers a built-in Full HD webcam and stereo speakers.
The laptop has Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC8260 11ac with integrated Bluetooth 4.1 built in for wireless connectivity. As for interfaces, it features one DC-in, one audio line-in/out port, two digital microphones, three USB 3.0 ports, a VGA port, a DisplayPort, a RJ-45 Ethernet port and an SD card reader capable to read SDs up to 2 GB, SDHC up to 32 GB and SDXC up to 128 GB. In addition, a SIM card slot is available on this laptop to support 3G/UMTS or 4G/LTE data connectivity. For this feature, the laptop has extra two UMTS/LTE antennas installed in addition to the two Dual band WLAN antennas.
Intel HD Graphics 520: Integrated GPU (GT2) with 24 EUs found on some Skylake CPU models (15 W ULV series).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
6600U: Skylake-based ULV dual-core processor for thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 520 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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 very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.
Fujitsu: Fujitsu, founded 1935, is a Japanese company specializing in semiconductors, air conditioners, computers (supercomputers, personal computers, servers), telecommunications, and services, and is headquartered in Tokyo. Fujitsu employs around 160,000 people and has 500 subsidiary companies. The partnership with Siemens AG was established in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers, one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".
Fujitsu is a medium-sized laptop manufacturer, which did not belong to the global Top 10 in the last years. In the smartphone sector, Fujitsu does hardly play any role. The ratings are above-average in the reviews (as of 2016).
90%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
