Fujitsu LifeBook A512 Notebook

12 February 2013

Fujitsu LifeBook A512 is an excellent notebook for home and business usage. It is moderately priced with exciting features and recovery options. It definitely is a good choice for those who require support for their older Windows operating system at work.

Fujitsu’s Lifebooks offer a good choice of operating systems. They have a Windows 7 in recovery DVD and Windows 8 Pro 64 bit as pre-installed operating system. You can also choose to install Windows XP into your system hard drive. In short you get two recovery DVDs and one partition that defaults to one operating system. All these operating systems and their hardware drivers are supported on the fujitsu’s support website. So that is a good option for those who don’t like Windows 8 and want to retain their old operating system and programs.


Lifebook doesn’t have the DVD playback software like Cyberlink or Cowerdvd and you have to download free or paid software from 3rd party vendors. It would be quite odd to use Windows 8 when you lack DVD support.  

System has VGA, Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI, 2x USB 2.0, ExpressCard slot on the left side and AC jack, DVD drive, Kensington Lock, USB 2.0 right hand side of the notebook. The front side of the notebook has the MMC card reader and the headphone jack. None of the connectivity options are excluded, the only thing I would expect is one more USB slot but that you can adjut by getting a USB hub.

Lifebook A512 has a matte 15.6-inch display and demonstrate excellent performance outdoors. Battery life of the Lifebook seems to be good compared to most of the netbooks at this price range. It has 6 hours of Idle time and 4 hours of the heavy usage battery backup. However, gaming with the backup seems to be a bit lagged and should be avoided.

Those who wish to use the low weight and good performance laptop can consider Fujitsu LifeBook A512 Notebook. As this laptop has everything a medium budget modern laptop can offer to users.
