Summary: As a college student, i often find ways to save money. And the best way to save money is to buy cheap stuff on black friday! So i purchased this laptop during 2011's black friday due to the price. This laptop was cheap, and i guess you get what you pay for. The speakers were not good, the mousepad was hard to use due to it being so small(i knew it would be small but it was too small.
Summary: Over the course of the last 1 month - one by one the following have failed on my brand new fujitsu (bought less than 3 months ago) : Network card (working sporadically only) USB3 ports (both of them) The trackpad (not working any more) The numlock keys The erratic jumps of the mouse (using external mouse) Who knows what else will fail on this horrendous machine.
Summary: I purchased the Fujitsu AH530 Notebook in November 2011. The one I purchased has the Intel I5 processor. For the first 8 or 9 months every thing was working like a charm. Occasionally, the screen would freeze up but after 5 or 10 seconds it would unfreeze and all would be well. About a year ago, I the notebook would start unexpectedly shutting off right in the middle of me doing work.
AH530 Lifebook Laptop overheated and shut down, but they fixed it.

Summary: I have had the AH530 since December 2010. Not long after I started using this laptop, I began experiencing problem with the laptop shutting down by itself for no apparent reason. I then took note on what happened just before shutting down. I downloaded and ran "Speedfan", and found out that the CPU was getting quite hot (>90C) but the cooling fan was pushing very little cool air out the left side of the laptop. I contacted Fujitsu tech support on-line.
Summary: I received the computer in wonderful condition. I have been using it for a couple of months and it has performed according to my expectations-- it hasn't given me any issues that couldn't easily be resolved. Good seller. Would buy from again.
Summary: Freezes constantly but returns to being useable. I feel fujitsu could have done more testing. I bought this for internet and light work but it struggles with page loads and the freezing is such a pain.
Summary: I am a college student and have been using this laptop for the last 7 months. The specifications are good and you can definitely run many games and programs on it. But aside from that there are many technical problems I noticed with this laptop. The one I've been using is actually the 2nd time I've gotten this laptop. The first, I've returned after 3 days because it would often freeze up to the point of no return (can't even ctrl + alt + del).
Summary: Bought this as a secondary laptop and with very light usage (4-5 hours per week) I ran into problems. The mouse click button broke after about 5 months then the hard disk crashed a few months later. This is ridiculous given the time I actually used it. Never a Fujitsu again. Live and learn!
kind of mediocre, especially compared to my previous FJ

Summary: Well first I need to say that average laptop quality these days is pretty lousy, and I had to return three other machines before getting this one. I would return this one as well, but did not get it from a big store. Well, there are good things, like the crisp display. Yet, they do not identify it is glare display, instead use some market bull like blalaview, while just writing "glare or anti-glare" would be much more help. Next, they do not correctly cite the graphics.
Summary: One of the best laptops ever built. Faster than many quad cores I have seen. Has everything you need, HDMI port, VGA port, Take PC card, has camera, stereo speakers, and headphone and mic socket, has USB ports, WIFI (wireless internet/networking use), Bluetooth, DVD RW for creating or editing your own movies, , RG45 for networking using cable, and a fantastic battery that can be used in a number of modes to make it last very long time in use.
