Fujitsu Lifebook S760 review

An expensive business ultra-portable that's short on battery life but strong on performance.


13.3 in 1,366×768 display, 1.6kg, 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 520M, 4.00GB RAM, 320GB disk, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Stylish isn’t an adjective that applies to the Lifebook S760. Matte plastics in a mixture of colours and lots of sharp angles make it clear that this is an ultra-portable laptop aimed squarely at business users.

As with most business-focused machines, the 13.3in display has a matte coating to keep reflections to a minimum. Although the screen has an impressive tilt of over 180 degrees, viewing angles were very tight. Looking at the screen from any angle other than square-on made colours look distorted. The backlight wasn’t very bright either, but colours were accurately reproduced. Two speakers mounted above the keyboard produce average quality audio. Bass notes were audible but had no strength. The speakers point upwards, so volume was low from any position other than sat directly in front of the laptop.

A circular scroll pad has been placed next to the main trackpad for faster web and document browsing. Although you have to move your hand to use it, it’s a lot faster and smoother than using the touchpad. The touchpad is average size, but it was responsive. The buttons are small because a fingerprint reader is placed between them, but they have a solid feel. Unfortunately the keyboard is more disappointing. The traditional keys are tightly grouped and the white keys look out of place with the already muddled black and silver chassis. The real problem is that they feel spongy when typing.
