Lifebook P7230 Notebook - Pink


This pretty subcompact laptop offers great battery life but the slow speed characteristic of this genre.

Integrated DVD burner, Pink designer lid

Cramped touchpad and mouse buttons, Slow processor

If flying your pink proudly (via a light-as-a-powder-puff notebook) matters as much to you as getting work done, the Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 might be all the notebook you need. But you value productivity, invest the $1679 (as of...

Lifebook P7230 Core Solo U1400 1.2ghz/2mbl2/533mhz/1gb/60gb/dvdmdl/gignic/abg/10.6"wxga/vb


The LifeBook P7230 is the lightest laptop we've seen that includes an integrated optical drive. It weighs 2.6 pounds, with a dual-layer DVD burner in place. Though the 2.4-pound Asus U1F has the edge in performance, the Fujitsu has a better keyboard,...

Long battery life Bright backlit LED screen

The LifeBook P7230 is a remarkable feat of laptop engineering: extremely light despite including an optical drive, and equipped with a nice little screen and a good keyboard. It's slow, but if e-mail, light work, and online researching on the go are...

Fujitsu LifeBook P7230


Attention, all you fans of the movie Legally Blonde, the Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 now comes with a hot-pink lid. This 2.6-pound ultraportable looks as darling as a teacup chihuahua peeking out of a tote. And the unit's battery life is like totally...

Fujitsu LifeBook P7230


The Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 is the only laptop below 3 pounds to have an integrated, modular optical drive.

Clad in white. Only 2.9 pounds. Integrated optical drive. You can swap in an extra battery in place of the optical drive.

Impractical keyboard. Meager performance. Slow hard drive.

Fujitsu LifeBook P7230


The Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 has an attractive design; it's lightweight; an Eco button lets you easily drop into low-power mode to extend battery life; includes optical drive.

Single-core processor means performance is limited; very small mouse buttons are annoying; 10.6-inch screen is smaller than that of most other ultraportables.

A sleek-looking ultraportable, the Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 will turn heads with its polished design, but its middling performance make it suited best for basic office tasks.

Review: Fujitsu Lifebook P7230 Notebook PC


The P is for pint-sized: Fujitsu's 2.9-pound pocket P7230 is quite possibly the lightest laptop on the market with an integrated optical drive. That's no...

Extremely handsome in solid black or pure white, free of the usual distracting trim flash. Despite shrunken size, keyboard is surprisingly usable. Nearly three-hour battery life on standard pack

Graphics are a no-show, causing big stutters on DVD playback. Speakers are weak and nearly inaudible when the loud fan kicks in. Core Solo CPU can’t hang with the big boys. 60GB hard drive needs a big upgrade. Minuscule mouse pad and buttons. Only two...

Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 (Limited Pink Edition)


It's pretty in pink and offers a lot of features and endurance for a good price, but this edition of the P7230 is a bit underpowered.
