£350 Fujitsu Lifebook AH532 laptop: Core i5, Windows 8 and much more

Amazon sells the Fujitsu Lifebook AH532 laptop for £350, a rather surprisingly low outlay for a laptop that runs a third-generation Core i5 processor and is neither refurbished, nor being cleared out. Note that a cheaper model that comes with a Core i3 processor is also available from £300.

The laptop features a dual-core Intel Core i5.3230M processor clocked at up to 3.2GHz with 3MB cache. Other features include 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard disk drive, a DVD writer, an Intel HD Graphics 4000, Wi-Fi, HDMI, an HM76 chipset, four USB ports including three USB 3.0 ones, Bluetooth 4.0. HD Webcam, Windows 8 OS and an average battery life of five hours.

As expected it comes with a 15.6in 1,366 x 768 pixel display and exhibits its business credential via a number of carefully selected features like an anti-glare display, a spill resistant keyboard, a dedicated numeric keypad, anytime USB charge functionality.

Design wise, the Lifebook AH532 is as conventional as it can be with a conspicuous lack of bling. This however means sticking with a fairly big laptop (both in terms of size and weight).
