This Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 ultraportable looks as darling as a teacup chihuahua peeking out of a tote. And the Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230's battery life is like totally awesome, too. But even though the Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 can do almost everything a full-size laptop can - even burn DVDs - it takes two to three times longer because of its slow processor.

Equipped with a 1.2GHz Core Solo U1400 chip and 1GB of RAM, the Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 earned a lackluster WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 32. (Full-size laptops with the latest dual-core processors have scored as high as 80). The Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230's battery lasted 5.8 hours in our tests, which makes it one of the top scores on this measure in our ultraportable category.

Another nice characteristic of the Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 is its modular bay, allowing you to use two batteries at once. It has a super-bright 10.6in screen, too, and plenty of useful connections, including a FireWire port and an ExpressCard slot. The Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 user manual is a nice printed book that you don't have to be a brainiac to understand.

OUR VERDICT

If flying your pink proudly (via a light-as-a-powder-puff notebook) matters as much to you as getting work done, the Limited Pink Edition Fujitsu LifeBook P7230 might be all the notebook you need. But if you value productivity, invest the $1,679 that our test unit cost in something faster.(And if you value your pride, check out the less colourful version of the Fujitsu LifeBook P7230.)
