Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook S6510

68% Fujitsu Lifebook S6510
Source: PC World English
The Fujitsu LifeBook S6510 is a slim and light laptop with a fairly big screen. Battery life is not bad, and you have the option of nearly doubling it by using two batteries at once. With its reasonable weight and a screen just small enough to clear a reclining seat back, the Fujitsu LifeBook S6510's physical attributes will please all but the most persnickety ultraportable fan. If getting maximum performance bang for your buck is just as important to your business, however, keep looking.

The S6510 is a notebook designed for corporate users, with corporate needs in mind. Paramount among those needs are reliability, security and portability. This is a Centrino Duo notebook, so along with an Intel T7700 Core 2 Duo processor, which hums along at 2.4GHz and has 4MB of L2 cache, it also uses the new Intel 965 chipset, which has an 800MHz front side bus.The S6510 is certainly a very good notebook and it’s definitely the lightest notebook of its size that we’ve ever tested. The built-in security features all worked quite well and we didn’t experience any problems or have any issues in testing. We especially like the spill-proof keyboard! Our only complaints are that it looks extremely ordinary (maybe that’s another one of its anti-theft measures!?) and it seems quite expensive given its mid-range hardware.

This lightweight and fast business machine offers road warriors a break from tiny screens and keyboards.
The lightest widescreen 14-inch notebook on the market, Fujitsu's LifeBook S6510 is stuffed to the brim with security and durability features. It's a compelling choice for the mobile professional who wants a business-rugged machine that will help safeguard sensitive data without bogging down the shoulder bag. Priced at $2,039, this configuration is pretty pricey, but it offers a lot of power and good endurance for your money. At only 4 pounds (3.7 pounds if you choose the weight saver instead of the 4X DVD-R DL drive), the black-and-silver S6510 is the second-lightest 14.1-inch notebook on the market, behind the 3.7-pound Panasonic Toughbook Y7, which has a standard 4:3 screen.

Now that we've all generally accepted the 14-inch laptop as the new mainstream standard-- replacing the just slightly too bulky 15-inch model--it's time for PC makers to concentrate on refining these systems, squeezing better designs out of the 14-inch design. Fujitsu takes a step in the right direction, slimming its new 14-inch LifeBook down to a mere 4 pounds, which is lighter than Dell's 14-inch Inspiron 1420 and even Apple's smaller, 13-inch MacBook. Starting at $1,529 (our review unit was $2,039), the Fujitsu LifeBook S6510 is more expensive than both Dell and Apple laptops, but if weight is a primary concern, this LifeBook offers a good mix of components, lots of screen real estate per pound, and business-friendly extras including TPM (Trusted Platform Module).

Fujitsu LifeBook S6510 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall our final impressions of the Fujitsu LifeBook S6510 are overwhelmingly positive. We would have liked to see at least one more USB port and the display didn't live up to the high standards we've come to expect on Fujitsu laptops, but business professionals will be hard pressed to find a better 14-inch notebook for travel. Bottom line, the S6510 is the thinnest and lightest 14-inch notebook we've seen. Performance is on par with (or superior to) the competition, and the build quality is among the best you can find in the $1,500 to $2,000 price range.

Don't let the Fujitsu Lifebook S6510's ($2,039 direct) 14-inch widescreen fool you into thinking this is a hefty business laptop. At 4 pounds, it's definitely an ultraportable. You can reap all the benefits of a true road-warrior laptop without compromising screen real estate. Even better, no performance sacrifices were made to lower the weight. This configuration loads a standard-voltage 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 and 2GB of RAM. All you have to do is convince your business manager that this laptop is worth the two grand price tag. Very few PC makers can pull off a 4-pound laptop without skimping a little on screen size. The only sub-4-pound laptop I can think of with a 14-inch screen is the Panasonic Toughbook Y7 (stay tuned for our review).

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.

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


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.


T7500:

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.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


1.8 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 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. The partnership with Siemens AG was established in 1999 in the form of Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC), one of Europe's largest IT hardware suppliers, and owned 50/50 by Fujitsu and Siemens. 2009, this cooperation was terminated, FSC ended to exist. In future, no laptops will be sold with the brand "Fujitsu-Siemens" but only "Fujitsu".
