Review Fujitsu Lifebook AH532 Notebook

 

Multimedia Mirror. The Lifebook AH532 is Fujitsu's logical continuation of the AH530 und AH531 notebooks. The Lifebook AH532 scores with up-to-date processor technology and a new casing.

up-to-date processor technology, three USB 3.0 ports, good performance, no throttling of processor, Fujitsu is for the most up-to-date processor technology

Good power for the price

Aesthetically unpleasant, lots of glossy black plastic which picks up every fingerprint and spec of dust.

Fujitsu AH532 AH532M35A2GB

 

Very quick processor. Boots from cold in 15 seconds. Plenty of connectivity including card reader (great for getting pictures from a camera instead of USB cable). Keyboard is large and well spaced, feels good to type on and has a full sized arrow key...

Only 320GB hard disk. Web cam doesn't seem great. Windows 8 can take some getting used to.
