Fujitsu LifeBook P7120 review:

Fujitsu LifeBook P7120

The LifeBook P7120's battery lasted an impressive 5 hours, 48 minutes, which trumps the 3 hours, 47 minutes of the Dell Latitude X1's battery but can't quite match the 6 hours, 36 minutes of the Sony VAIO VGN-TX670P's. If you need even more battery life, you can swap out the LifeBook P7120's optical drive for an optional $115 battery.

Though we would expect a system aimed at business users to include a three-year warranty, the LifeBook P7120 comes with industry-standard consumer coverage: a one-year limited international warranty on parts and labor. Extending coverage to a total of three years costs a reasonable $179.95; upgrades to onsite service are also available. Fujitsu's support site includes all the drivers and technical help you'd expect plus a useful chat feature, which we used to contact a technician and quickly diagnose a problem. We also appreciate that the LifeBook P7120 ships with an increasingly rare set of recovery disks in case you ever want to start from scratch.
