Summary: But I'm not impressed with Windows7. Would have given a 5 with XP. At least windows has a site for research for issues that does help. Also wasn't impressed with the packing it came in. Just the cardboard around the styraforam end caps. Maybe that is sufficient, it seems fine. Only had it a couple of months. Still trying to get control of my own computer away from microsoft. XP wasn't this obnoxious. I've almost dumped microsoft several times.
Summary: I bought one 2 weeks ago. Specs are fantastic, lots of great features. Then I found out only 1 cd/dvd will boot! On all my laptops I run TrueCrypt. That will not install on this ah532 as the BIOS gives me a Secure Boot error. Part of the TC install process is to burn a cd & boot from it. BIOS refuses to boot that cd. I also usually run Acronis True Image 2013 to backup my C partition, which runs fine.
Summary: owned 3 earlier versions of this laptop and only had to replace to upgrade. never had any problems with fujitsu so really I don't tend to look elsewhere. When this came up for sale I ordered it straight away as it was £50 cheaper than the nearest equivalent i5 processer and so far I,ve not been disappointed. Everything works as it should and I am really pleased with the battery life, which is all I could find fault with the older models.
Summary: Well, there's not much to say, is there? The specifications are already listed in the description and this laptop has all that the description promises. It's well made, looks nice. However, the frosted plastic looking does seem quite cheap. Great computer for that price.
Summary: Bought laptop for my daughter for college. The internal speakers stopped working after a few days use. She phoned the helpline and after 30 minutes on the phone to them and 2 reboots later it eventually worked. Apparently it was some issue with Windows 8 compatibility, Otherwise laptop seems to be very good - but it's early days yet...
Summary: This. Laptop has very good specs. for the money and is well put together (ie.sturdy) although aesthetically the black matt plastic finish is a little basic, that can be overlooked at the price. It starts reasonably quickly, and requires signing in to an email account to access the App window for Windows 8, which usefully notifies of any Mail, News Events, Weather, etc. without having to Google.
Summary: This is a very cheap laptop for what you are getting. The build quality is a bit flimsy but not too bad, the screen looks a little washed out and the styling is fairly bland. But you are getting a fairly fast processor with a graphics core that can play older games fairly well for a very good price. I replaced the hard drive with a spare SSD I had available which makes it very responsive.
