Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook E8410
Source: Laptop Logic
I’m torn between the simple aesthetics, yet ample connections and battery performance. This laptop is by no means the beefiest configured road warrior, nor the flashiest. However – it offers a lot of amenities and very usable computing power under the hood, coupled with great heat management, excellent battery life, and different configurations that can be ordered to fit the bill with a dedicated graphics card…I have to say I’m mighty impressed. Not to mention coming in at a base price under $1,600 for a top of the line “Penryn” CPU and excellent features, I have to put this right up there with the Highly Recommended. It only falls short of Editors Choice because of the keyboard layout/feel, not able to upgrade the RAM further, and the speakers could definitely use a revamp. For a business user, you have to take a look at this form factor as 15.4” is a little on the larger side to lug around – however, carrying a nearly 4 hour battery span definitely evens the playing field.

Fujitsu Siemens’ laptops are synonymous with business. Gone is the multimedia razzmatazz, replaced instead with a solid set of features geared towards empowering business users with a solid and reliable platform to get the job done both in the office and on the road. Excellent connectivity & security features make it an excellent business contender

Although it's a solidly constructed business laptop with an appealing design and decent performance, it's hard to make a case for the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 because it costs much more than competing 15-inch models.

Overall, the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 with Penryn is an excellent option for working professionals in larger companies or IT professionals who need a modern notebook that can interface with older technology. Although the E8410 would still make a perfectly good consumer laptop, the price, performance, and range of features really make this machine a professional tool with a reasonable price point. I would recommend this notebook for business professionals, particularly given the usefulness of the modular bay, huge number of ports, and optional configurations with Windows Vista or XP. If this notebook had slightly better build quality it would easily be perfect for the target audience.

Packing durability, a host of security options, and excellent performance, the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 is a good all-around business notebook. Striking a fine balance between performance and design is the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410, the successor to the E8210. The system packs in all the essentials needed to keep mobile professionals productive in the office and (occasionally) on the go: a fast Intel Core 2 Duo processor, excellent Wi-Fi throughput, security features, a shock-mounted 100GB hard drive, and discrete Nvidia graphics. Toss in a $1,849 price tag and you have an affordable business machine that should satisfy even the most demanding user. Weighing in at 6.2 pounds and measuring 14.1 x 10.1 x 1.4 inches, the E8410 is too bulky for toting around town on a daily basis, but it's still small enough to be a sleek desktop alternative that goes with you to in-office meetings.

The business-focused Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 offers security features, a modular bay for expansion, a 15.4in screen, and an optional webcam. he Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 is also light and has pretty good battery life. For improved performance, invest in 2GB of RAM instead of our test unit's 1GB.
Fujitsu lays out its usual smorgasbord of security options for safeguarding your data. A SmartCard reader and a security button panel that you can program with a number combination are standard with the Fujitsu LifeBook E8410; a built-in biometric fingerprint reader costs a little more.
Our review unit equipped with a 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo T7500 processor would have earned a better WorldBench 6 Beta 2 speed score than 72 if it had carried another gigabyte of RAM.

The midsize Fujitsu LifeBook E8410 is by no means flashy, but the laptop has a lot to offer business users, starting with a thorough feature set that includes nearly every port and connection a business user could need, plus serious data security that includes a smart card reader and a Trusted Platform Module. When it comes to performance, the LifeBook E8410 matches that of comparable systems from Gateway and Lenovo, with one exception: our review unit's 1GB of RAM held it back on our Photoshop CS2 test (an upgrade to 2GB would cost $130 if you buy it from Fujitsu). Pricewise, the $1,849 LifeBook E8410 costs about $70 more than a similarly configured Lenovo ThinkPad T61--though the latter lacks some ports and makes you choose between a smart card reader and an ExpressCard slot.

The Fujitsu E8410 is a Santa Rosa updated model notebook featuring a low-end 8400M-G DX10 graphics card but excellent connectivity and port options as well as a great battery life. Let us see how well the E8410 feels and performs, and how well this 15.4” business-oriented machine strikes a healthy balance in its design, power, and usability! Cosmetically, the E8410's exterior consists largely of medium grade black matte plastic with some glossy highlights in the front for good looks. This business-oriented notebook would look goodl in just about any public appearance. It is not too flashy, nor is it too professional looking. The plastic is smooth to the touch without being slippery. However the glossy front "bumper" is definitely a fingerprint magnet. Overall, I would say that the Fujistu E8410 embodies the struggle between battery life and power, heat and noise, price and performance, weight and build quality. The E8410 has great advantages and features … but also a few weaknesses.

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G: The 8400M G is a pared-down 8400M GS with only half as much Stream Processors and a smaller memory bus. Therefore, the performance is much lower and only as fast as the old 7400 card. Only MPEG-2 acceleration.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
