Build and Design

The M2010 is painted in a beautiful glossy metallic inside and out with glossy piano black plastic around the Keyboard  top and around the screen.
The top-notch build quality is without squeaks around the chassis, and some amount of flex from larger plastic surfaces. The screen hinges are strong with good tension, pivoting the screen properly when in use. The standard “Fujitsu Felt” is found on the bottom underneath the processor location, which limits the amount of heat transfer while pressing it against the legs.
Internal components can be accessed through a single panel at the bottom, but allows the user to bring out the system memory and wireless card.

Screen and Speakers

The M2010 has a great-looking glossy screen, with LED backlights. Rich, vivid colors, with superb contrast and excellent black levels are observed. Brightness levels set at the highest values, are best for viewing in bright office conditions. Viewing angles are average, with colors beginning to invert 20 degrees forward or back. Horizontal viewing angles are better.

The speakers deliver an average performance. Highest volume levels are suitable in a small room, but not in a larger room. Bass and midrange are absent, with only higher frequencies coming in. Experts recommend use of headphones for a good experience of enjoying music or movies.
Keyboard and Touchpad

The model has one of the smallest and most cramped keyboard layouts. There is a wide border around the keyboard, which goes great with the shiny red finish, but falls short of   typing surface. But the keyboard feels very sturdy with excellent support and minimal flex under high typing pressure. Each key action is smooth, and the keys hardly wobble while using. The noise during typing is soft.
The M2010 has a small Synaptics touchpad in a smooth matte finish which is easy to operate with no considerable lag. A Synaptics feature called “Momentum” is used, which when switched off made the touchpad motion feel more comfortable. The touchpad also supports some multi-touch gestures, including Flick, Pinch, and ChiralRotate etc. The touchpad buttons are equipped with a seesaw button that is so flexible that both buttons can be pressed simultaneously. Feedback is minimal, with a loud click when pressed.

Ports

The M2010 offers three USB ports, VGA out, headphone/mic, and SDHC multi-card reader, and LAN connection, a Kensington Lock slot.

Build and Design

The Fujitsu LifeBook AH550 sports an elegant, metallic black finish inside and out with attractive chrome accents. The Fujitsu logo is embossed on the screen cover. The Interior has a palmrest, keyboard trim and screen bezel in metallic black finish with chrome accents around the touchpad bordering the front edge making it look very sleek.

The build quality falls below those found in other business notebooks. Main panels, like the palmrest, screen cover, have some minute flex. The paint quality is great with the finish proven to be quite resistant to dents and scratches. Everything is done in matte plastic that suits the shiny black finish perfectly hiding dirt and finger stains. Easy access to the hard drive and system memory can be obtained through two panels on the bottom.


Keyboard and Touchpad

The LifeBook AH550 comprises of a comfortable keyboard with tactile feedback. Key wobble is hardly noticed with smooth travel for larger keys. It is spill-resistent and full-sized complete with a numeric pad. But despite being a multimedia notebook, dedicated multimedia keys or function keys are absent with a support key as the only auxiliary button.

The touchpad is basically a medium-sized ALPS model supporting multitouch gestures. Touch sensitivity is excellent. The supported gestures are pan scrolling, pinch zoom and pivot rotation. Chiral scrolling action as an added option is also supported apart from standard up and down scrolls.

Screen and Speakers

The screen is supported with an LED-backlit panel with a 1366×768 WXGA resolution.. The panel has some moderately good color with proper contrast. The sleek shiny screen creates a greater color saturation and better black levels. Screen brightness is good enough for viewing indoors, but not so for outdoor viewing.

The speakers are found above the keyboard. The bass and midrange are very weak even for small rooms. A pair of headphones or digital audio over HDMI should be used as experts suggest.

Ports and Features

The Fujitsu LifeBook AH550 has various ports like four USB 2.0 ports, VGA and HDMI-out, LAN and analog audio jacks etc for good connectivity.
