Reviews for the Fujitsu M2010

83% Review Fujitsu M2010 Netbook | Notebookcheck
New Territories? Whilst some manufactureres apparently can't wait, to churn out new netbook models onto the market, others have all the time in the world. Fujitsu could be named here as an example for mini-notebooks. Now the Japanese manufacturer releases its first netbook in a 10 inch format labeled M2010 on the market - over a year later than the emergence of the first mini-PC.

At Rs. 28,000, the product is just too expensive. Of course the main thing it has going for it is the classy mature look and feel, and also the well built and well finished surface and hinges. But that’s not the be all and end all. Its screen is very bright thanks to the LED backlight, but viewing angles suffer a bit. Concession for viewing angles can be given, as generally the user will be looking at the screen straight on, and this one has a bright enough one for offices and traveling.

Fujitsu's M2010, an appealing netbook but the trackpad needs work
Source: PC Authority English
Battery life lets down this otherwise solid netbook from a local manufacturer. The only real complaint we have is the trackpad, which was unresponsive and imprecise to work with. We assume a firmware update will fix it, and in the meantime, the Fujitsu makes an appealing mid-range netbook.

100% Fujitsu Technology Solutions M2010
Source: ITP English

Tuned for high performance. Priced at US $408 Fujitsu Technology Solutions' M2010 netbook is priced competitively against models from other vendors, including Lenovo's IdeaPad S10-2 (also reviewed on ITP.net). In terms of specifications the M2010 boasts identical components to Lenovo's IdeaPad; it has a 1.6GHz Atom CPU which is HyperThreading enabled, sports 1GB of memory and uses Intel's 945GSE chipset.

A handsome netbook that boasts super-quick performance and lengthy battery life. It’s competitively priced too.

65% Fujitsu M2010 netbook
Source: Reg Hardware English
As netbooks go, the M2010 isn’t a bad effort from Fujitsu and, had it arrived on our doorstep at the start of the year, it would have scored much higher. However, with so many models offering an almost identical core spec, manufacturers need to work hard to gain market share and Fujitsu has done little to make the M2010 stand out from the crowd. For just a little extra wonga, you can pick up a Toshiba’s excellent NB200, which features a far better keyboard and longer battery life. Ultimately, the M2010 brings nothing new to the table and it looks very much like Fujitsu is playing catch-up when it comes to netbooks.

70% Fujitsu LifeBook M2010 review
Source: Techradar English

Fujitsu's new netbook has a lot of competition to stand up to. Fujitsu's first netbook – the Amilo Mini UI 3520 – was a usable and likeable device, but struggled to stand out from the crowd. Its successor – the M2010 – certainly seems more successful, but the jury's still out.

While we can't make a final decision on how the M2010 fits into the bustling netbook market at this early stage, first impressions are very positive. As long as performance and battery life match the impressive build and usability, Fujitsu may have a winner on its hands.

Fujitsu's first entry into the netbook market falls short. It feels lieka system designed over a year ago with the flaws found previously in other netbooks that have since been corrected. The biggest issue though is the overall cost. For $450, the unit is just too expensive compared to similarly equipped netbooks that cost almost $100 less. Then there is the issue with the extremely poor battery life with the base 3-cell battery that is well below average.

67% Fujitsu M2010 Review
Source: Hardware Central English
A vent for the Fujitsu's audible but not annoying cooling fan is on the system's left side, along with VGA and USB 2.0 ports. Two more USB ports are at the right, as are an Ethernet port, headphone and microphone jacks, and a Secure Digital/Memory Stick flash-card slot. With many netbooks sporting 92- and 95-percent full-sized keyboards, the M2010 settles for 90 percent -- a 17.2mm key pitch, with the A through apostrophe keys spanning a hair under seven and a quarter inches versus a desktop's eight. It's a slight but noticeable squeeze compared to the 7.5 inches of the Eee 1000HE, requiring more conscious, careful fingerwork yet still suitable for touch typing. The keyboard's typing feel is good, as is the smooth response of the touchpad, although the latter's mouse buttons are noisy.

Fujitsu M2010 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
  The Fujitsu M2010 is a late arrival to the netbook market, offering very good looks and build quality, but with a high price and not so excellent performance. Compared to some of the newer netbooks on the market its benchmarks fall towards the bottom of the list, and battery life came up way short with the 3-cell battery. With its good looks and high build quality it seems to be pushed towards business customers, which might explain the higher price. Overall for if the price was about $100 less it would be much more attractive.

  In the end, Fujitsu didn't produce a bad machine--just a fairly average one. In a market already brimming with wannabes, I would have liked to see Fujitsu deliver more-daring designs, such as what it did with the U810, the U820, and the N7010 (which embedded a second touchscreen into an all-purpose portable). Plenty of other netbooks offer better performance for less. Might I suggest the Asus Eee PC 1008HA?

Fujitsu is finally getting in on the growing Netbook trend, with an entry aimed at the educational market. The M2010 includes many of the same features already common in the increasingly-similar Netbook product landscape, but what differentiates it as an "education Netbook?" We were curious to find out, especially since the Dell Latitude 2100 made a similar--but much larger--splash in the educational arena just a few weeks ago. With a thick chassis and features that don't rise above the pack, the Fujitsu M2010 will have a hard time breaking through the clutter of less-expensive systems.

Fujitsu’s entry into the netbook market is a snappy performer, but its battery life, keyboard, and price can’t compete with its peers. The Fujitsu M2010 is a case of too little, too late. While the netbook has a compact and stylish chassis and provides solid performance, its cramped keyboard and less than 2 hours of battery life hold it back. Additionally, its $449 price, which includes only a three-cell battery, is not competitive with the rest of the field. For $10 less, the Samsung N110 not only provides four times the battery life, but its keyboard is more comfortable; the same goes for the $379 ASUS Eee PC 1000HE. Until Fujitsu includes a six-cell battery standard for a lower price, we wouldn’t recommend this machine over the established netbook players.

While other companies are launching two to three netbooks at a time (some even more), Fujitsu has been waiting patiently for its opportunity to enter an increasingly crowded field. And now the time has come. The M2010 has one of the most vivid and color-rich 10-inch widescreens in the business, and the infinity-symbol design is easy on the eyes, but it isn't without flaws. I can forgive the 89 percent keyboard, since this netbook is aimed at classrooms and at kids, whose hands are presumably smaller than mine. The Fujitsu M2010 has one of the brightest and most color-rich screens in the netbook market, but the price and battery life might keep it away from classrooms.

With its M2010 Mini-Notebook, Fujitsu enters the U.S. netbook fray with a 10-inch model that looks great and delivers the expected features (and then some) for a netbook-appropriate price of $449. Unfortunately, though, the M2010 doesn’t match similar netbook models in battery life. Fujitsu’s entry into the 10-inch netbook market features a standout design, a great screen, and a usable keyboard, but the short battery life will disappoint on-the-go users.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N280:

Power efficient, cheap and slow Netbook single core CPU. Because of the in-order execution, the performance per MHz is worse than Core Solo or Celeron M processors. Compared to the N270, the N280 is only minimally higher clocked and offers a higher FSB.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.16 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Fujitsu: Fujitsu, founded 1935, is a Japanese company specializing in semiconductors, air conditioners, computers (supercomputers, personal computers, servers), telecommunications, and services, and is headquartered in Tokyo. Fujitsu employs around 160,000 people and has 500 subsidiary companies. The partnership with Siemens AG was established in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers, one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".


68.13%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
