Fu­jitsu, $1399 au.fu­jitsu.com/pc

★★ The LifeBook is the sec­ond biggest ma­chine in our line-up, has the largest pro­ces­sor and the largest price tag. It op­er­ates on a Core i5 In­tel pro­ces­sor, so it won’t strug­gle to per­form any ed­u­ca­tional tasks. But out of the box it comes with just 2GB RAM, which sug­gests Fu­jitsu jumped to add the lat­est pro­ces­sor but cut cor­ners on the me­mory, lim­it­ing what oth­er­wise would have been ex­cel­lent per­for­mance. As it comes with 64-bit Win­dows 7, a 4GB RAM up­grade makes sense. Com­pared with the smaller units, this 13.3-inch lap­top has a de­cent ar­ray of ports, in­clud­ing HDMI and VGA-out con­nec­tion, which will be handy for me­dia use. Al­though a solid ma­chine, it’s let down by its odd lack of RAM grunt.
