The Good Solid mid-range performanceDecent battery life.

The Bad Only 2GB RAMHorrific speakersTiny touch padShortcut buttons make annoying beep noises.

The Bottom Line The SH560 is a light, portable laptop that sits comfortably in the mid-range field. We'd love to see more RAM in there and better speakers, but everything else makes sense. For more power in the same package, check out the SH760.

Fujitsu's SH560 bears an uncanny resemblance to the SH760 — the major point of difference being the Core i5 in the SH560, the Core i7 in the SH760.

There are a few other differences, like the arrangement of the buttons beneath the monitor and the deep purple sparkly finish that appears black unless it's in direct light, but for all intents and purposes this is the same chassis as the SH760 with a few tweaks, right down to the bizarre dedicated scroll wheel.

The aforementioned dedicated buttons found beneath the monitor are increasingly becoming a rarity, with shortcuts to Fujitsu's Support Center software, the default web browser, default mail client, battery eco mode and CyberLink YouCam being provided, each press accompanied by an incredibly annoying noise.

The keys that make up the keyboard are tapered and sit flush with each other, bucking the recent island-style found on most laptops since Apple forged the trend. The tiny touch pad that Fujitsu can't seem to let go is still featured here, encouraging cramping, while a fingerprint reader is nestled between the right and left mouse buttons.
