Fujitsu Lifebook A6220
Fujitsu’s Lifebook series run the gamut from portable and lightweight mobile notebooks to overpowered desktop replacement performance powerhouses. The Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 strikes a tasteful balance between a standard sized laptop and a desktop replacement category notebook. Boasting above average connectivity, awesome multimedia capability and a decent set of customizable options, the Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 is a prime contender for the performance oriented user that doesn’t want to lug around a 20-inch power brick.
• Blu-ray, DVD +/-RW, CD+/-R optical drive
• ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 video card
• 4GB of RAM
• 15.4-inch display
The Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 is available with swappable “shells” for the lid that allow you to change the look and color of your laptop in seconds. We’re surprised it took this long for this feature to catch on with a mainstream laptop. Your laptop can dress up or down depending on whether you’re spending the evening at a coffee shop or spending the weekend on a business trip.
The Fujitsu boasts all the standard fare of laptops in its category. Happily, Fujitsu doesn’t just provide the gigabytage we expect, but makes sure it’s nice and fast. The 4GB of RAM onboard the Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 run at 1066 rpms. It’s a small gesture, but we tire of companies trying to sneak 4GB of slow memory past customers. The 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor brings desktop power to daily application use—no hiccups, stutters or choppy performance here!
The Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 really impresses when it comes to multimedia. For the price, it’s genuinely impressive to see a high-power notebook equipped with a Blu-ray reader. If the high resolution, 15.4 display isn’t up to your liking for an evening movie, the Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 features an HDMI port so it can double as a Blu-ray player. The Fujitsu Lifebook A6220’s video card ensures that any HD video you’re watching, whether from Blu-ray or the 320GB hard drive, will play beautifully and smoothly.
Fujitsu has got a lineup of functional extras for the PC that make Macs look lackluster. The Fujitsu Lifebook A6220 is no exception. The touchpad is gesture-enabled for nifty mouse-free rotating, minimizing and basic operating.
