Review: 3 laptops powered by Intel's Core i7 processor

 

Testing how well Intel's Core i7 mobile processors can move your multimedia

To compare these high-performance laptops, I started by weighing, measuring and examining the major features of each machine. I typed on them, ran presentations, edited and watched videos, manipulated CAD drawings and used them to nose around on the Web.

Fujitsu LifeBook E780 notebook

 

A 15.6in Fujitsu laptop that's designed primarily for business users

Excellent Full HD screen, plenty of connectivity, modular bay, good battery life, Core i7 CPU

We would like to see a 7200rpm drive rather than 5400rpm for the same price, no HDMI or DVI, keys are a little too hard to press, Kensington lock in awkward position

Fujitsu LifeBook E780 review

 

Fujitsu's LifeBook E780 is a 15.6in widescreen laptop with a boxy design and a tacky, two-tone colour scheme. Don't let its look deceive you though as it's actually a powerful notebook that's well built and has plenty of features. It's aimed at...

There's no doubt that the Fujitsu LifeBook E780 is costly, but it's worth it if you want a laptop with a high-end CPU and a vibrant, Full HD screen. We wish it also had an HDMI or DVI port, and that the keys were a little softer to press. (The location...

Fujitsu Lifebook E780 review

 

A well-built and powerful laptop, the E780 has a poor display, far more security features than most users will ever need, and is far too expensive
