A tool dedicated to office automation : FUJITSU – Lifebook S752 – Intel Core i5-3320M

In a few words

Even if there are not really bad choices in laptops anymore, it is important to know that some models are more for multimedia, and others more for games.
So we did some tests FUJITSU Lifebook S752 to find out what it was worth. The result depends on the use you will make of it.The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.We have oriented our test according to criteria such as use for travel, office automation, internet browsing, games or multimedia.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?

Lifebook S752 to surf the Internet?

Your needs are almost exclusively internet browsing and some word processing documents, but you don’t want any quality defects in this laptop.The objective is to ensure the proper execution of the tasks you request.
It is to respond to this type of need that FUJITSU has developed this Lifebook S752.The computer is positioned at the same level as competing models in this price range. When you get used to it, you can see that the equipment is of good quality.
The screen is quite large, with 17 inches. Not necessarily easy to carry around. A reasonable choice equips this model; the Intel Core i5-3320M. FUJITSU basic idea that you’re not going to put too much strain on that laptop. A logical decision in relation to the intended use of this computer: surfing the Internet and sufficient computing power. Very clearly, with only 4 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. Chances are you’ll have to add some memory over time. In terms of memory, you will be assured of having a machine that is more fluid.
With its 500 Gb of hard disk, you are within the average of other computers. In any case, it should be enough for a use like surfing the web. FUJITSU comes with this Lifebook S752 a laptop that you’ll keep for a few years before it becomes obsolete.
Finally, the autonomy of 4 hours is one of the worst on the market. Batteries store little energy, and the computer consumes a lot of energy when it is used. In other words, you will have to keep this Lifebook S752 most of the time connected to the power cable.

Lifebook S752 for videos?

High quality, the engineers of FUJITSU have chosen to make this Lifebook S752 the top of the range for leisure uses: movies, music, photos. In the age of multimedia, this laptop has evolved and is a cross between a TV, radio and a desktop computer. And to put it simply, this model is clearly one of the best in its category for watching videos or listening to music. A quality of image and sound that allows it to achieve an excellent score in this category.
The laptop from .FUJITSU is imposing by its size. A 17 inches screen, and a resolution of 1920×1080 make it one of the great products available on the market at the moment. Because of its wide screen, it is perfectly designed for watching movies. Very good quality rendering, both in brightness and image detail.
Note that one eliminatory criteria for some nomadic users is its weight; here this model weighs 2.9 kg, partly because of the screen size.
Unfortunately, the screen of this model is not provided with a glossy finish. On the other hand, it will be annoying for regular use in a dark room. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In short, you’ll prefer this finish for daytime movie viewing.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Lifebook S752. By pushing the volume with music, we tested the rendering. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
This Lifebook S752, equipped with a processor Intel Core i5-3320M, corresponds to a price/power ratio in the average, sufficient for a dedicated multimedia use. A mid-range element with the latest components (chipsets) ensuring better compatibility with your peripherals. So your multimedia sessions will be fluid.
Equipped with the Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphic card, and with 4 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 4 ports. That makes it one with the biggest number of ports compared to what’s on the market right now. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
In short, for those who wish to replace their TV set with this laptop, it Lifebook S752 seems inappropriate. With its autonomy of 4 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. This situation may annoy many people, considering that the interest of a laptop is to be free of these details.

Lifebook S752 compatible with on the move use ?

It’s a laptop, it folds like a laptop, but because of its size and weight, nothing makes Lifebook S752 to be easily carried around. At least that’s what we find out a priori. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
Forget about vacations and commuting.
This is one of the heaviest models compared to the competition: 2.9 Kg. It’s unpleasant to carry. Its size will make you regret the format of ultrabooks. The main cause is due to the size of the screen.  Its weight is a disadvantage, but the17 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
No backlit keyboard on this Lifebook S752. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
Good image definition although the slab is not shiny. The screen shows an interesting result.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The image is beautiful, and with its anti-reflective matt tile, no more problems even outdoors.
The energy consumed by the processor Intel Core i5-3320M is in the average currently.
However, please note that the autonomy indicated by FUJITSU must be reduced. Rather count on 70% of this value in standard use; the more you use the processor, the lower the figure will be.
Unfortunately for the specifications of the batteries will only allow 4 hours of availability, one of the lowest at the moment.
This laptop will therefore rather be intended to stay on the desk or to be taken away from time to time at the weekend. Because, due to its weight and size, every move will put you at risk of damaging it. Equipped with a standard 500 Gb hard disk, it will make possible an almost unlimited number of writing cycles (recording/erasing). Only an SSD hard drive could improve this, but then it is an additional cost.
When it comes to traveling, you’ll probably think twice before you take that computer with you. And the only times you’ll have to carry it will be between the bus or train and your hotel room. The main reason is its 17 inches, which makes it one of the largest in its class; every move, with its weight, may be difficult.
At the connector level, this model provides 4 inputs. Convenient for travelling when you will need it, it ranks among those with the most.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
Finally with the Lifebook S752, FUJITSU deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.

The Lifebook S752 for audio or video editing ?

Not really designed for video editing or music. Indeed, to meet this need it is necessary to have a laptop with a high processor and RAM speed, but this is not the case here. Even if it would be possible to do audio or video cutting, it doesn’t seem to correspond to this need. FUJITSU has favoured more standard uses, which require less computing speed. Note that this model is not of the latest generation. It will be more suitable for word processing and Internet browsing, and as soon as you try to run applications in parallel, you will have frozen screens and a rise in computer temperature, whose processor will quickly reach its operating limits.
In the event of occasional audio-visual use, the processor Intel Core i5-3320M of this laptop is within the market average. With its 4 Gb of RAM, it has enough memory for image processing. This model comes with a pre-installed software suite by default. If on the other hand you start on pro applications, it will be necessary to add more memory.
With 500 Gb hard drive size, you have enough space.A disk size equivalent to competing products. However, it is possible that you will fill this space quickly as the films may take up space. Regarding the speed at startup, FUJITSUmade the choice of the conventional hard drive. A choice of solidity that is certainly relevant, against a choice of speed that could have broken in 5 years.
The autonomy of this Lifebook S752 is of 4 hours in normal use; It’s not much, and it’s best to let it plugged in while you’re editing audio or video. With most competitors on the market, this figure is better.
Well thought out in terms of connections, it Lifebook S752 receives the USB3 connection. The latest convenient protocol for interfacing computers and electronic devices such as external hard drives. In addition, this technology offers a better rate of high-speed file transfer between your laptop and external drives.
In the end, it is a product not allowing audio and video editing. You can use it for word processing or web browsing.

Lifebook S752 for video games?

With this model, you will be able to move quickly in any game, without parasitic elements, screen freezing or image tearing. For a long time, laptops were not powerful enough to be used to play games. On this Lifebook S752, FUJITSU has implemented a cooling system perfectly dimensioned for advanced uses of online games.
The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed the visual rendering will be. On this computer, it’s a resolution of 1920×1080, nothing better at the moment
The graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 card and processor Intel Core i5-3320M will be sufficient to fill your screen. Even if the components are not to the level of the best, the processor Intel Core i5-3320M and the board Intel HD Graphics 4000 allow to achieve a very good result in terms of image and colors.
For the vast majority of users, this brings a result perfectly adapted to most of the games of the moment.
The huge advantage of choosing a gamer laptop is that they are able to do everything very quickly. It is among the best in terms of GPUs (Graphics Processing Unit).
An average capacity/price ratio that makes this Lifebook S752 an interesting choice when you’re looking for a 500 Gb drive. A feature that interested those, and there are still many, who want to install and play locally.
The Wi-Fi technology of this model has wifi with 5GHz band, which facilitates online gaming. More speed for those living in full Wi-Fi areas.
One of the heaviest laptops of the moment, partly due to its 17 inches size.
One of the lowest battery life 4 hours, which will force you to often leave this laptop plugged in.
Clearly, a good quality rendering on the graphics, a size of 17 inches, thin and rather light (2.9 Kg), make this Lifebook S752 an excellent one for a video game use. In addition, it is good value for money compared to competitors. And if necessary, you can even use it for office functions between two games.

Is the Lifebook S752 adapted to office automation ?

Whatever the type of operating system, it is possible today to have an office use on all laptops. For those who prefer Apple, there are MacBooks, free distributions for Linux, and Windows computers for the vast majority. Perfectly office oriented, this Lifebook S752 is efficient.
Customary of this OS, FUJITSU has chosen as usual. It’s Windows 10, last generation.
Given its size, it is not advisable to be taken away too often. This model weighs 2.9 Kg, making it one of the heavyweight.
Key spacing will be important for office use. If you work frequently on a spreadsheet, you will appreciate the presence of the numeric keypad.
We gave it the lamp test, positioned next to the screen, and it was found to be sufficiently matt to avoid the reflection phenomenon. The colour palette is of good quality; blacks and whites do not look like yellow and grey.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. Equipped with a hard drive of 500 Gb, it will give you the possibility to store all your documents locally.
Clearly, this is an excellent one in this price range. Well thought out in terms of ergonomics.
