Inital impressions good....but strange partition sizing
, 19 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Fujitsu LIFEBOOK AH532 15.6-inch Laptop (black) - Intel Core i5-3230M Processor (3M Cache, up to 3.20 GHz) 4GB RAM, 500GB hard disk, DVDRW SM, Intel HD graphics 4000, Intel Centrino N2230 802.11b/g/n WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0, HD webcam, Windows 8 64-bit (Personal Computers)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very happy with this AH532 Lifebook, not owned a Fujitsu branded notebook or PC previously and my initial impressions are very good. It comes with an i5 processor and 4GB of RAM which is plenty for the average user. In the short time I've had it, I've found it performs really well when browsing, downloading, converting or any of the other tasks I've used if for. The start up time is really fast (even after the addition of my preferred bloatware that whilst not essential I like to use), the keyboard is a nice size with a number pad and easy to type on and I like the matte black finish of the outer shell. The touchpad seems responsive enough even though it does have a strange bobbly surface which I found quite strange at first. There's 4 X USB ports, 3 of which are USB 3.0 and the HDMI is useful for hooking up to the TV.
One thing I found strange was the allocation of hard drive disk space. The main C:drive is allocated a measly 75GB whereas the D:drive which is labelled 'Drivers' is allocated a whopping 373GB. Not really an issue as re-partitioning was easy enough but hardly something I'd expect to be doing 'out of the box'. (For anyone who's interested I used 'MiniTool Partition Wizard' which is easy to use and free for home users)
Not overly keen with the Windows 8 operating system, but persevering and as this review is about the laptop and not the operating system - less said the better.
Setting up was easy and no issues with connecting to our home network. Aside from the partitioning issue, after only using for a short time I'm pretty impressed.
