Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo Pro V3515

Source: IT Reviews English
Fujitsu Siemens claims that its Amilo Pro V3515 is “designed to deliver breath-taking performance.” Sad to report that our review model fell well short of that claim, due to the choice of processor. Although it costs just £333 (including VAT), shopping around you will find other laptops in the same price bracket but with faster processors and better specifications. It's a big old beast weighing in at 3.15kg (including AC adapter) so it's not one you'll want to carry around all day. Overall the build quality of the chassis is good, though the screen has quite a lot of flex to it, and it looks quite stylish in its silver and black finish. For some reason Fujitsu Siemens declined to go down the Dual Core or even the Core Solo route with our review Pro V3515, although both processor types are available as options. Instead the company plumped for a Celeron M 520 to provide the processing power.

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.

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)
