Fujitsu LifeBook N7010 review
Last updated on May 27, 2011
Fujitsu LifeBook N7010 is different. It has attempted to redefine how new and possibly useful features can be added to this notebook. And Fujitsu has attempted to do this in the area of the display.
The most distinguishing part of Fujitsu lifebook N7010 is that it comes with two displays. You already know one display. The second one is a 4″ display just above the key pad area. This second display has touch screen that can be used for navigation. This is very useful for many operation.
Fujitsu N7010 is a powerful computer intended for desktop replacement. Fujitsu launched it in October 2008 and is available at fujitsu website for $1499. Some retailers show it available for as low as $1400 as on Jan 13, 2009.
Fujitsu Lifebook N7010 sports Intel Core2 Duo P8400 (2.26GHz, 3MB L2 cache, 1066GHz FSB). At 2.26 GHz it is pretty fast for almost all your computing needs.
The normal configuration comes with 4 GB DDR3 1066 MHz SDRAM memory (2 GB + 2 GB). The amount of memory is sufficient for most of the works.
Although N7010 is does not have very powerful amplifier speaker and audio system, it is able to give you a decent quality audio that you can enjoy while listening to movies.
Display and Screen
The primary screen in this notebook is 16-inch wide-aspect that delvers bright images and rich colors. The second is a 4-inch screen that fujitsu calls Touch Zone touch screen. It definitely enhances productivity as claimed by fujitsu. You can customize what buttons to keep in the 4 inch display area.
The battery life of N7010 is impressive. With the screen at half brightness and Wi-Fi enabled, its life is close to 2 hours, 40 minutes under normal surfing conditions. It could go longer with Wifi disabled and screen brightness further reduced. The battery is Lithium ion with 8-cell and a rating of 5200 mAh.
The notebook has Integrated webcam with 1.3 mega-pixels (640×480) resolution and digital microphone.This is in line with current trend with all the notebooks in medium to high end configuration coming with integrated webcam.
On the front of the notebook is Multi-card reader, Wi-Fi switch. Rear side has LAN, VGA and HDMI.The right side has AC power, USB x 2, eSATA, IEEE 1394, USB x 2, audio jacks, ExpressCard. On the left side we have Blu-ray/DVD/CD-R combo drive.
This makes fujitsu N7010 equipped with almost everything that you can think of.
