Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook E8210

Fujitsu Siemens - E8210 review
Source: IT Reviews English
What the mobile corporate user needs most from a laptop is the ability to connect to the office wherever he or she happens to be. A great - albeit expensive - combination of features, performance and security. With the 3G support added to an impressive list of connectivity features, the E8210 allows any mobile user to keep in touch practically wherever in the world they find themselves.

Built to withstand the rigors of travel, Fujitsu's LifeBook E8210 combines dual-core processing power with security and durability features galore. Factor in its sub-$2,000 price tag and discrete graphics, and this corporate mainstream system is a good choice for every business user, from junior associates to executives. The system's exterior sports a matte black finish, while the inside is silver with a white full-sized, spill-resistant keyboard. The lid is made of sturdy magnesium rather than the usual impact-resistant plastic, and it's attached to the base by two stainless steel hinges. At 5.9-pounds, the E8210 is easy on the shoulder.

66% Fujitsu LifeBook E8210 Notebook

The Fujitsu LifeBook E8210, the latest in the company's line of business-oriented thin-and-light notebooks, is by no means exciting, flashy, or inexpensive, but it does offer serious performance and security at a competitive price. The LifeBook E8210 performs as well as the more expensive Dell Latitude D820, totally outperforms the Micro Express EL80, and has more security features than the cheaper HP Compaq nx7400. Corporate buyers looking for a 15.4-inch, wide-screen notebook should consider the LifeBook E8210 alongside the best offerings from Dell, HP, and others. The LifeBook E8210 looks a bit like a cross between an Apple MacBook and a Lenovo ThinkPad. It's all business black on the outside, but opening the notebook reveals a silvery-white interior.

Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook E8210

On paper, there's a lot to tempt the mobile business user to this latest Lifebook E8210. Not least because, like Acer's Aspire 5652WLMi, it comes with a 3G card slot and aerial integrated into the chassis. In this case, however, it's fully unlocked, so you can use any 3G SIM - the normal restrictions and tariffs will apply. And, like the Acer, this hardware can also revert to EDGE or GPRS if 3G isn't available. That's on top of the 802.11b/g WLAN and Bluetooth, the latter of which will enable you to make voice calls over 3G using a headset. The flexible 3G implemetation is tempting, but the poor battery life and screen quality lessen the appeal.

90% Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook E8210 - 3G Notebook
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Fujitsu-Siemens should be congratulated for producing the first notebook with an integrated 3G module. OK, so there are a lot of other manufacturers promising similar products, but there’s a lot to be said for actually having working, reviewable hardware rather than just a press release. But it’s not just the 3G functionality that makes the LifeBook E8210 a great notebook, it’s also got one of the best feature sets I’ve ever encountered, great build quality, excellent ergonomics and solid performance.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X1400: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 is part of the lower middle class. The performance can be compared with an elder X600, but technically it is a X1300, which is scarcely 100 Mhz higher clocked.

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

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


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)


T2600: Second fastest Core Duo based on the Yonah core. Does not support 64 Bit operating systems.» 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.


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.


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".
