Fujitsu Lifebook S760 (S7600MF031DE) in the test
Intel's fastest Core i7 Dual Core, 3G, TPM, drive shaft, matte 13-inch screen and low weight - the Fujitsu LifeBook S760 has seemingly done everything right. The test revealed, however, a significant weakness.
Business Laptops must meet at the points stability, modularity, hp pavilion dv9000 battery life and very high security requirements. Therefore, manufacturers have their own target audience for this series in the offer, which differed from the price-sensitive consumer offer. With the S760, Fujitsu Lifebook an easy 13-inch model, which provides tidy with Intel's fastest mobile dual-core performance.
The anthracite colored casing of the Fujitsu makes a solid impression: The cover is made of lightweight and sturdy magnesium. If you fold the device, says the silver-gray, ribbed palm rest. Everything has a pleasant feel. When processing affords the machine is not weakness.
The keyboard has a well defined pressure point and allows comfortable typing. No question: The S760 is suitable for prolific writers. Unfortunately, the touchpad is a little small. Fujitsu has integrated a second, circular touchpad, whose sole function is scrolling with circular movements. This works quite well, but offers no decisive value. Between them placed mouse buttons sits a fingerprint scanner.
The 13.3-inch screen dissolves the usual 1366 x 768 pixels. As befits a business notebook, Fujitsu has built a matte display. Reflections are not noticeable. The integrated webcam in the frame has a resolution of 1.3 megapixels.
For expansion of three USB ports and an Express Card-34 slot available. External displays can be digitally connect via HDMI. The S760 can be operated thanks to the interface on the underside of a docking station too.
Performance and equipment
The device is powered by a Intel Core i7-620M driven by a basic clock speed of 2.66 GHz. It is the fastest mobile dual-core, Intel is currently offering. It supports hyperthreading and can understand the expense of other cores up to 3.33 GHz overclock. This works the S760 because of the apparently very leistungfähigen cooling very well: If four threads running, the clock is at least 2.92 to 3.06. A thread drives the chip actually for a long time to 3.33 GHz. Only briefly switches the CPU back to 3.18 GHz.
The Core i7-620M offers a hardware-accelerated AES encryption, which speeds up these operations by 15 times (Everest 5.3: 172 555 points to around 10,000 points for the i5 430M). In practice, for example, can pack faster with WinZip version 14 encrypted archives. Who the device is updated later on Windows 7 Enterprise and activates the Bitlocker hard drive encryption, benefits in the form of a lower CPU usage when reading and writing data. The S760 has an integrated TPM 1.2 module, which securely stores the key. The vPro functionality facilitates administration.
As the graphics solution, housed on the processor Intel HD Graphics is used lenovo ideapad y430 battery. The team brings it in 3D Mark 2006 on View 1916 points - almost twice as much as the previous platform (Core 2 Duo and GMA X4500MHD).
The 320 GB of hard drive is Fujitsu with 5400 revolutions per minute. The memory is 4 GB (DDR3, 1066 MHz) dimensioned for the business environment sufficiently. Because Windows 7 Professional 64-bit version is installed, it will be fully utilized.
In addition to Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11b/g/n have a 3G module from Sierra Wireless integrated. It reaches downstream 7.2 Mbps, upstream 5.76 Mbit / s. The slot for the SIM card is accessible only after removing the main battery. In addition, the latch is very stiff.
The DVD burner is housed in a removable tray and can be replaced with a second battery. It has a capacity of 2500 mAh and costs about 100 €.
Despite built-in optical drive, the S760 weighs just 1.7 pounds - not as many devices without burner. With 3.05 inches, it is about 5 millimeters thick - which is a practical use but also very little weight.
Software and battery life
Surprisingly, the software equipment of the S710: Icons of Ebay, the Google Pack software and Cyberlink YouCam (webcam image adds to the "add fun effects") have on a business notebook actually lost anything. Are also preinstalled a 60-day trial of Office 2007 and Security Software Norton Internet Security 2010 with updates for 60 days. Annoying is: hardly the S760 is slightly moved, reports the Shock Sensor Utility, the parking of the write and read head disk. That would also discrete.
The S760 brings a powerful battery with 5400 mAh capacity. While surfing the net and screen dimmed, he keeps a good four hours - which is in view of the fast CPU is a good value. With the wide raised additional VGP-BPS9 battery you would probably run for just over six hours. Charged to the system stronger, the screen goes black after less than three hours.
The hardware of the Lifebook S760 leaving a positive image - with one exception: the fan too loud. He runs very often and is clearly visible. This also applies if the device is operated with low utilization.
When Lifebook S760 Fujitsu has almost everything right: it is stable, fast and offers many wireless options and a keyboard for prolific writers. Unfortunately the fan is because of his own in idle-mode high volume may be present. In a relatively costly device with 1349 € we can expect more.
