Short Presentation Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo M1451G

Fujitsu Siemens promotes the AMILO M1451G as a mobile Notebook with good performance and slim design, suitably for office applications and home
entertainment. At present it is offered for 1099 Euro on the website of the manufacturer. This is not a test report, but a small presentation of the this laptop type.

Processor

At the moment Pentium M by far is the most frequently used processor in laptops. Compared with other processor types it is very fast per megahertz and does not need much energy (see our Processor comparison). The same processor Pentium M 740 with same clock frequency 1.73 MHz is integrated in the following models tested by us (in German):

Asus Z9252V     Nexoc Osiris S607

DTK EDL-70      Sony Vaio VGN-FS215M      Acer Extensa 4102 WLMi

Video Card

The video card RADEON X300 is positioned in the performance class 4 (1=best, 6=worst) of our comparison of video cards. Some current not fastidious games can be played fluently with low details.
Bench mark: about 7000/1900 3DMark 01/03; Compared with the (up to now by us) 40 tested laptops the video card performance of this laptop is to be positioned in the average zone.

Laptops with equally fast video cards (all tests in German):
Sony Vaio VGN-FS215M (nVIDIA GeForce Go 6200)
HP Compaq nc8000 (ATI Mobility Radeon 9600)
IBM R50p (ATI Mobility FIREGL T2)
IBM T41p (ATI Mobility FIREGL T2)

Display, Weight and Keyboard

15.4"  widescreen displays are a very frequently used format for notebooks and represents an average size for laptop screens.
Here a few of our tested models with the same display size format:

MSI Megabook 635 (English)
Sony Vaio VGN A417M (English)
Sony Vaio VGN-FS215M (German)
Acer Aspire 1681WLMi-M11 (German)

The weight of 3 kg of the AMILO M1451G is average, too. About half of the models tested by us weighs about just as much (list).

The enter key has normal size, but it is encircled by page run keys (danger of wrong clicks). The arrow keys are separated from the remainder of the keyboard (favorably for players).

Case and Ventilator

The mayor part of the case is made of plastics and therefore probably not so durable as metal cases. 2 USB connections on the right and on the left side are a generous amount and pleasant for right-handed and left-handed people (no mouse handicap by cables). There are no PCMCIA Slot, but an express-cardreader.

The ventilators switch themselves in/out automatically. The silent mode, which can be activated, throttles the performance and so reduces the noise of the ventilator and current consumption. Regrettably the ventilator exit is (as with MSI Megabook 635 and Megabook 645) on the right side. At least it is positioned in the rear area of the side (contrary to the two models mentioned). Nevertheless the hand of right-handed people with mouse is strongly warmed up during higher load.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X300: The ATI Mobility Radeon X300 is a X600 with a memory bus cut in half (64 Bit). The performance is somewhat above the current integrated graphics of Intel GMA950.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


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


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.


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


Fujitsu-Siemens: 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.

In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".
