Extremely portable Very long battery life • Surprisingly spacious keyboard • TPM chip and fingerprint sensor

Mediocre performance Small touchpad buttons • Below-average Wi-Fi range

Fujitsu P7120 (P7120D) Review (pics, specs)

 

Fujitsu has released another refresh to their popular ultra portable P series of notebooks. While the last update was largely chipset based, the LifeBook P7120 offers up an entirely new body design and several other updates like integrated Bluetooth,...

Fantastic display Fanless -- very quiet operation Integrated Bluetooth Docking station support

Hard to see one in person before buying

I was really concerned that the slower speed hard drive was going to kill the performance of this machine. I'm so happy to report that I don't find it to be an issue and the resulting benefits of smaller size and reduced heat are worth it. The unit is...

To call the Fujitsu LifeBook P7120 just a plain old ultraportable notebook is a serious injustice. The P7120 takes into account everything a mobile user needs, whether they're flying business class or commuting by train into the office. Some of the...

Lightweight. Built-in dual-layer DVD burner. Hackproof hardware security. Very good battery life

Slow ULV processor. Keyboard smaller than full size

The Fujitsu LifeBook P7120 has everything you need in a lightweight business notebook, even if it is a miniature one.

If you liked the LifeBook P7000, Fujitsu's stylish 3-pound laptop, you'll likely be equally enamored with the new and improved LifeBook P7120. This hi...

Clever design, Good Battery, Comfortable to use

No CompactFlash support, No protective covers on ports

The Fujitsu LifeBook P7120 is an attractive and cleverly designed notebook with all the bells and whistles of some much more expensive models.

Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7120 notebook review

 

Fujitsu Siemens has had a great couple of years. At one time they were little more than a curious brand with nothing to claim as their own. Now, they're one of the top five notebook names in Europe and it's all down to matching great prices with...

Lightweight, great battery life

Not the most powerful of notebooks

Coming across as a Sony VAIO on steroids, the LifeBook is a lightweight machine that has the battery life to go the distance

A nice simple layout means this is easy to use

Crisp, clear screen, Comfortable to use, Battery life

Slow performance

That's not the only advantage you get with the Lifebook. It's supplied with goodies such as a fingerprint stripe sensor for biometric security, and wide standard support: DVD-RAM as well regular discs, 802.11a along with the usual 11b and 11g. Add a...

Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P7120 review

 

With strong performance, lengthy battery life and light weight, the Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P7120 is a no-compromises ultraportable

Extremely portable design ; Comfortable keyboard ; Fingerprint reader ; Modular DVD burner ; Long battery life

Expensive ; Cramped keyboard ; Screen dims in battery-saving mode ; Lacks Gigabit Ethernet

The LifeBook P7120's battery lasted an impressive 5 hours 48 minutes, which trumps the 3 hours 47 minutes of the Dell Latitude X1's battery but can't quite match the 6 hours 36 minutes of the Sony VAIO VGN-TX670P's. If you need even more battery life,...

Product Specifications

P7120 sports many features that make it a must-have item for mobile executives: from a striking glossy black finish, battery life that lasts up to a full working day, through to a weight of only 1.28 kg (without optical disk drive), the LIFEBOOK P7120 is the lightest, fully-functional notebook available with a modular bay, brilliant widescreen display and technology to support all necessary connectivity possibilities. The need for a full-function and powerful notebook in a slim and attractive form factor is particularly strong among professionals such as sales representatives, consultants and highly mobile executives. They use their notebook in very demanding situations, from a regular PC to a customer presentation platform, their notebook is their corporate backbone while on the road. They demand a notebook that combines state-of-the-art technology with special screen functionality, that make it ideal for multimedia applications. Equipped with LED backlights, the display delivers brilliant colors while the higher contrast 15:9 format produces crisper images. It also absorbs most external light and has wider viewing angles than conventional notebook screens. A biometric fingerprint sensor is standard. The LIFEBOOK P7120 is tied to the Trusted Platform Module (TPM), which acts as a hardware vault for passwords and encrypted keys. The hard disk drive shock absorbers, meanwhile, reduce vibration to ensure higher data availability and prevent losses. And with an eye to the future, the LIFEBOOK P7120 is VoIP-ready, featuring best speech recognition with latest array microphones.
