This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
H980 enough for internet use?
Just because your use of a laptop is limited to e-mail and web browsing sessions, doesn’t mean you should buy any model.A minimum quality level is important to guarantee reliability over time. It is a balance between a 1st price and the latest multi-processor designed for professionals.A fairly powerful multi-processor, but one that won’t require you to take out a credit to pay for it.Here you have an almost perfect product.With this H980, Fujitsu is well positioned in relation to other competing models.With a 17.3 inches size, you’re going to have some trouble carrying it around. The computer is equipped with one of the latest processors Intel Core i7-8850H. Its power will give you the assurance of having a laptop that will work very well for 10 years. In addition, with this model, you have at your disposal a tool that will make your internet navigation fluid. With 16 Gb of RAM, it H980is a good product. A large quantity, more than you will need for strictly web browsing use.
Of all the computers available at the moment, this one is the laptop with the largest hard drive. Even with 512 Gb, you can be sure that many video and audio files are continuously stored. This H980 allows you to save locally, and guarantees that you can watch all the movies you want without internet access.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 12 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. Fujitsu is among the best in terms of duration in only battery mode. Incidentally, you will have all the more pleasure to use it for a long time because of its very pleasant screen.
H980 for videos?
High quality, the engineers of Fujitsu have chosen to make this H980 the top of the range for leisure uses: movies, music, photos. You will benefit from an unparalleled comfort of use. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. The sound reproduction level and the display quality of this top-of-the-range model won’t be lacking.
Fujitsu presents this model in a large size version. It is one of the largest, with a screen size of only a few 17.3 inches, and it has a good resolution of 1920×1080. This model has a wide screen that will be essential for viewing your movies and streaming video. The color contrast is sharp, and the image is bright, no matter from what angle you look at it.
One of the disadvantages of this size, however, is the overall weight: 3.2 kg that will have to be transported.
The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. The effect is of lower quality in environments with intermediate or even low light levels – often corresponding to the conditions in which a film is viewed. The readability of the display is therefore a little lower.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
On the sound side, it H980 has good components: board and integrated speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The processor installed on this model is a high-end Intel Core i7-8850H. Unlike the brand’s older processors, energy efficiency is optimal and consumption is well controlled. This means that several billion calculations can be carried out simultaneously.
Equipped with the Quadro P3200 graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. This will obviously be a bit light if you want to do 3D imaging, but will suit your needs.
Concerning the connections, this model has available 3 ports. Much better than most of the competition. You will be able to connect all your peripherals to it.
As for the batteries, you could almost replace your TV set with this H980 one. You get 12 hours of battery life, which is better than many other models. No need to constantly check the battery level; you’ll be able to watch movies and listen to music for a long time.
H980 the right choice for travelling connected ?
This H980 is one of the average laptops; not really nomadic oriented, but still possible to carry on special occasions. We have analysed different scenarios : depending on whether it will be used for work, with bus-metro-train travel, or just for holidays and weekends. And here’s the result : What makes this one of the best laptops to carry is the balance between weight, size and the set of components chosen by Fujitsu.
With its 3.2 Kg, it H980 is one of the heaviest in its class. It’s unpleasant to carry. For a laptop it”s bulky to move. The main cause is due to the size of the screen. Its weight is a disadvantage, but the17.3 inches screen will make it an advantage when writing e-mails or doing word processing.
The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. Not really necessary.
Finally, the absence of a glossy slab does not compromise image quality. We appreciate the viewing on this screen.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. The anti-glare matt tile allows this laptop to be used outdoors even in bright sunshine.
Equipped with a processor Intel Core i7-8850H, this model has a very low power consumption. With the low voltage on the processor, the autonomy is increased and allows to last longer than competing models.
That doesn’t mean you’re going to reach that figure, because it’s an average estimate indicated by the manufacturer.
With this laptop and its autonomy of 12 hours, you have in fact one of the best models of the moment.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 512 Gb. The induced advantage here is the absence of latencies, especially in the recovery phase after a standby or due to prolonged inactivity.With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.And if you absolutely need more storage, you can buy an external drive, or take out a cloud account.
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 reason for this is its size; with 17.3 inches, it is one of the largest laptops of the moment.
