Reviews for the Fujitsu Lifebook E558, i5-8350U
There's a lot to like about Fujitsu's Lifebook E558. The VGA and Ethernet ports, removable battery and matte screen are somewhat old-fashioned virtues, but none the worse for that, while the SmartCard option adds a security layer. The chassis could be more robust, audio quality isn't great, and a touchscreen option would be handy. But with starting price of just £663 (ex. VAT) this highly configurable laptop has a lot to recommend it.

CommentIntel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
8350U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.7 and 3.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

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).
80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
