Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook A3120

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.

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.
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.
