Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230


An ultra-portable with HSDPA, but is it the perfect corporate ultra-portable?

Even without the second battery though, battery performance is very good. When using the notebook with wireless enabled and the screen at around 70 per cent brightness, the P7230 managed five hours while performing word processing and Internet browsing...

Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230


There are certain variables that always have to be weighed up when purchasing a laptop. It's like getting a rescue cat. You could go for the feisty looking one, with shining eyes and claws to match, knowing you'll never be able to let it out of your house

Attractive and pleasant to use, Just about the perfect size

Runs very hot, Not the fastest performer

A classy business laptop that isn't exceptional but does its job well

Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P7230 laptop


Fujitsu Siemens may be better known for its cost-effective desktop replacement series but it also does an interesting line in ultraportables aimed at the business traveller. The Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230 isn't ideal for everyone. If you need a...

Stunning battery life, lightweight

Rather slow

The Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230 isn’t ideal for everyone. If you need a machine that is powerful enough to handle anything, then it isn’t for you.

Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230 review


The Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230 is a portable and robust laptop that travels well. But although good its performance isn't amazing, and it's far from inexpensive.

The Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7230 is well equipped for the harsh life on the road and would make an ideal travel companion if that's your main focus. However, its performance and specifications are a little subpar. We also think it's very expensive,...

Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230


The comedic duo takes on their biggest foe yet, and it makes it their best outing so far.

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 if you value productivity, invest the $1,679 that...

Fujitsu Lifebook P7230


The LifeBook P7230 is the lightest laptop we've reviewed that includes an integrated optical drive. It weighs 1.2kg, with a dual-layer DVD burner in place. Although the 1kg Asus U1F has the edge in performance, the Fujitsu has a better keyboard, costs...

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 email, light work and online researching on the go are all...
