Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Li2727

60% Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 2727 review
Source: CNet English
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.

Comment

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.

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

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.

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.» 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.
