This machine is not going to make any headlines but succeeds as an inoffensive machine that's pleasant to use, fine to look at and not too painful on the wallet. It's not really suitable for regular use on the move or for gaming, but as a household workhorse, it's a winner.

Once you start dipping below £500, it's much harder to scout out the right notebook for your needs - at this price, it's almost inevitable that something has to give. And while the Amilo isn't the cheapest notebook we've ever seen, it's not far off - remarkable given some of the treats inside.
On first impressions, the Amilo chassis is one of the most outwardly basic to come through our doors. The design is unapologetically plain, with only the silver-finish lid providing any sort of decorative flourish. The rest of the exterior is also conspicuously bare - aside from the 56K modem and 10/100 Ethernet ports, you'll find just four USB ports and a VGA out. There's no serial or parallel, no PC Card slot or FireWire, and certainly nothing as forward-looking as an ExpressCard slot or media card reader.

Review: Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Li1718
Source: vnunet.com English
A low-priced student notebook that’s blighted by outdated graphics.
As schoolchildren and students, or at least their parents, gear up for the new academic year, notebook manufacturers are starting to plug their bargain-basement PCs to those whose needs stretch to little more than office and internet use. As expected, the latest Fujitsu-Siemens notebook has shunned Intel’s new Santa Rosa platform in order to keep the price down, so there’s no advanced features such as Draft-N wireless or Turbo Memory. The computer has an Intel Core 2 Duo T5300 processor running at 1.73GHz, so it’s no slowcoach, but it’s not going to be at the front of the race either. The 2GB of memory supplied as standard is a welcome addition, however, and alleviates the poverty of the Li1718’s graphics performance. The graphics card is an ATI Mobility Radeon Xpress 200M with 256MB of dedicated memory. While a separate rather than an integrated graphics card usually indicates decent performance, this model is old and struggles to cope with recent developments, particularly in gaming.

80% Review: Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1718 notebook computer
Source: vnunet.com English
Although it's only the beginning of the summer holidays, Fujitsu Siemens is already offering forward-thinking parents a head start for next term with what it calls a 'back to school special'. The special in question, which is only available in Tesco shops from the beginning of August, is the Amilo Li 1718, a 15.4in notebook computer with an Intel Core2 Duo processor. Such notebooks are, it's fair to say, ideally sized for students – while they're not small enough to be truly portable, they offer a large enough screen size to make them comfortable to use. This one is very much a no-frills model, as indicated by its sub-£500 pricing, but, again, that's what's required from such a computer. The main functions – general Windows use, web browsing, email and word processing – are all present and correct, and work very well. The processor, a Core2 Duo T5300 running at 1.73GHz, is not a slowcoach, but it's nowhere near the fastest in Intel's range.

It's cheap and cheerful. If you're after a low-cost second laptop, or something for the kids, then you could do a lot worse than the Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727. If you're serious about computing, though, you should look elsewhere and prepare to shell out more. The Medion Akoya S5610, for example, offers much better multitasking and graphical performance for £600.

FSC's Amilo Li2727 offers great value for money
Source: Fudzilla English
The Amilo Li2727 is a workhorse, a grunt. There's no fancy design details or features, but it gets the job done. We think we were a bit too harsh in some aspects, so let's get one thing straight: in the end there's really not much to complain about. It looks nice, the keyboard and touchpad are good, albeit the touchpand could use a scroll bar. The build quality is good, it's got a dual core CPU, enough memory to cope with Vista's cravings and a spacious 250GB HDD. Its performance is not stellar, but it's more than adequate. The dual-core Pentium T2370 is clocked at 1.73GHz, has 1MB L2 cache and uses a 533MHz bus. The memory is also runs at 533MHz and the 5400rpm HDD is quite fast and quiet. There's no Webcam, card reader, Firewire, ExpressCard, fingerprint reader and other fancy stuff. However, most people don't really need these features, anyway (we don't). Thanks to its spartan design, FSC managed to keep the price down and that's where the Amilo Li2727 really stands out from the crowd. At €550 you'd be hard pressed to find better value for money.

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

ATI Radeon Xpress 200M: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M is the shared memory integrated graphic card from ATI based on a X300 core. In general it is a bit faster than the Intel GMA 950 graphic core.

VIA S3G UniChrome Pro: The S3 UniChrome (Pro) is a DirectX 7 (without T&L) onboard graphic solution (shared memory) from VIA for laptops. Mainly, it is intended for office activities and hardly suited for 3D games.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.

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


Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.

AMD Mobile Sempron: 2800+ to 3000+ mobile Athlon 64 with reduced level 2 Cache; The rating is not comparable with Athlon 64 Rating. A 3000+ Athlon 64 is faster than a 3000+ Sempron. There is no 64 bit support.
Especially: Sempron 2100+, socket S1, 9 Watt TDP, 1 GHz

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

Intel Celeron Dual-Core: The Intel Celeron Dual-Core familiy consists out of dual core CPUs for cheap laptops. Compared to the Celeron M single core family the biggest advantage (in addition to the second core) is the Enhanced Speedstep function, which enables the notebook to downclock the CPU in Idle mode. Therefore, the current consumption can be much lower. Compared to the Core (2) Duo or Pentium Dual-Core processors, the Celeron Cual-Core features much less L2 Cache which leads to a lower performance per clock.

T1400:

Merom based dual core processor with a reduced feature set (power saving functions, virtualization features) with a small level 2 cache.

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

T3200: Entry-level dual core processor with a slow performance due to the old Merom core and a small level 2 cache.


15.4: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

17.0: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

3.3 kg:

This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.


78.25%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
