Guide Review - Fujitsu LifeBook B6110D Touchscreen Notebook

The Fujitsu LifeBook B6110D I reviewed had a 40GB hard drive and 256MB of RAM. While it was easy for me with my small hands and short fingers to navigate the keyboard (and I do like the Fujitsu keyboard layout), the addition of a stylus to make working easier is a great idea. Whether I was going through documents or on the Internet, I found it much less frustrating than working with a the touchpad and mouse buttons. I tend to have a number of documents open at one time, in addition to multiple web pages and it can be a pain to work this way on a laptop. I had no problems with the Fujitsu LifeBook B6110D and using the stylus.

One item that took a bit of time to adjust to for me was the fact that this laptop has no optical drive, although using an external drive would not be a problem.

On a fully charged battery I was able to work for 5 hours and 50 minutes and that includes using the Wi-Fi. Speaking of the Wi-Fi, I had no problems connecting to my home network or any outside wireless locations. After the initial set-up of the wireless connection, I could connect automatically and begin working.

I would add that getting the optional Fingerprint Sensor would be wise idea for all mobile professionals. The extra level of security this provides creates a very secure laptop platform to work with from any location.

The Fujitsu LifeBook B6110D touchscreen notebook is easy to take anywhere on the road and easier to use. It's a great notebook for mobile professionals.
