5 out of 5 eggsUntouched Features for the Size

Comments: I bought this laptop last week, and I absolutely love it. I had always loved Sony's 10.4" widescreen laptop, but the price was rediculously high, and it did not have s-video output. The second I saw this laptop, I fell in love. I wanted something small and portable, but to still have the capabilities of a full-sized notebook. The Fujitsu has not disapointed.

I have had no problem at all typing on the keyboard, it has a great feel to it. Some of the extra keys are a little small, but this is understandable. The only thing I noticed, the writting on the key is hard/impossible to read in low light.

This is the only ultra lightweight laptop I have ever seen that has s-video output, not to mention the CD-RW/DVD, card readers, firewire, etc. The screen is beautful, and actually runs a higher resolution than 12" 4:3 screens.

It took me a while to find the extra features on the touchpad, but it has everything. Make sure to enable the edge drag! I was going nuts until I found out how to enable that.

I only have two disapointments. The first would be the lack of an IR port. This makes syncing my PocketPC more troublesome than it would otherwise be (or, I just have to buy and carry around with me a USB adapter). The second is the door that covers the ethernet and modem ports. This door does not sit flush with the outside of the laptop, instead, it sinks in slightly, making it VERY difficult for someone without long nails to open. It is easy to remove, but this doesn't look as good. I am hoping to put a small piece of something behind the door so that it closes properly. The door that covers the VGA and firewire ports does not have this problem, it is easy to open.

The laptop is heavier than other 10.4" laptops, but that is because of the number of features and large battery. The large battery provides great run times. I have not timed it, but 3-4 hours should be possible. I also like how Fujistu sends the laptop with a blank for the modular bay, so that if you don't need the CD drive, you can just put the blank in there and save weight.

The speakers sound good for the most part, but occasionally make trebles painful, and have a tendency to ring at a certain frequency.

Overall, a great laptop that I would recommend to anyone who wants a small and lightweight laptop for a reasnable price (although the high end configuration is fairly expensive) without sacraficing anything.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I bought this notebook with te intention of using it as a portable option to my desktop: basically just for word processing and playing DVDs. It's the smallest unit on the market with a built-in optical drive, which I think is its biggest selling point. I've been pleasantly surprised by its performance. In this configuration (512MB RAM, 802.11G WiFi, 60GB HDD) it runs all my daily use applications with panache, including intensive apps like Photoshop. Games run well, though FPS take a frame-rate hit. But all other apps run with no hiccups whatsoever.

Built in sound is not great, especially through the built-in speakers. Fujitsu does give you a neat app that creates a speudo-surround environment with your headphones when you watch DVDs. This featue works reasonable well and sound through my good headphones is clear and has no interference.

The P5020D's features are really some of its top selling points. Despite its tiny (under 4 lbs!) chassis you get a IEEE1394 port and 2 card readers, which is a nice touch. The only bad thing are the dongle type adapters needed for the VGA and S-Video adapters. These seem awfully easy to lose and since they're propritary you have to buy the replacement from Fujitsu, and they aint cheap. Also the keyboard seems seems a little small, but I've found it easier to use than I expected with my massive paws. The only thing that throws me a lot is the right hand shift/arrow/punctuation key placement, which is tight and unorthodox. The rest of the keys however are close to normal size and have good feedback.

Overall this little notebok is a powerhouse and should be able to perform most task you can ask of it. Power users and hardcore gamers won't be able to use this as their primary system, but it's so amazingly portable I'm absolutely sold on having it even as a backup. If you can do wth a smaller hardrive and less memory you can save your self several hundred bucks, but at this configuration it does yeoman's service as a portable media library and productivity center. ai'd planned on buying an i-Pod and a portable DVD player, but this unit fulfills the functions of both with aplomb.

Bottom line: If you've never owned an ultra-portable, you don't know what you're missing, and with the P5020D you won't be missing much by downsizing. If Fujitsu actually advertised in the US I'm convinced they'd be the biggest selling name in a week. Their customer service responds to emails within a couple hours, but I haven't tried the phone service so I can't comment.

This gorgesous little perfmormer should be on your short list if you're shopping for a new notebook, no matter who you are.

5 out of 5 eggswill have it

Comments: Shopped around for a notebook for a long time.
Smaller models like this never come with all the interfaces e.g. s-video out, firewire, wide screen, card readers.
But this one does.
This is the best configuration. And yes it is expensive. It got many awards in Europe as well.
