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.

This is seriously the best money I've ever spent on technology. There's no other brand of notebook I'll buy. Fujitsu:notebooks::Canon:cameras

LIFETIME telephone customer support (North American, native English-speaking, 24 hours) at no extra charge; unbeatable portability; lightweight; superior battery life; sturdy

Speakers are small, so not made for ultra premium sound

I bought one of these in April 2006 online in the UK. It's currently on its 3rd visit back to Fujitsu. The warranty runs out in April this year so I expect to be left with either a very hefty repair bill late in 2007 or a dud machine.

Small, light

Not reliable, get very hot

I have owned several ultra portable laptops and the Fijitsu P7120 is clearly the best. Its finest feature is an ultra bay that swaps the CD-R Drive for an extended life battery that adds very little weight. Many manufactures sacrifice either an optical...

Excellent battery life, solid build and thoughtful design

Proprietary power saving modes and software. Mini DIM ram upgrade is cost prohibitive

I've been checking it out for over a week now and I'm very impressed. Sure it's a smaller screen and keyboard but that's the point.

size & weight, integral DVD, battery life, screen, silent!, ergonomics

slower proc., at ~3lbs. it's not feather-light, not cheap

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.
