60% Fujitsu LifeBook S7020D- leichtgewichtiger Rennläufer bereit für die Strasse
Source: Laptop Mag English
Fujitsu's Lifebook S7020D ist ein gutaussehendes System mit einer Vielzahl von einzigartigen Extras. Es hat weder Wireless Breitband noch fortgeschrittenere Features, die es heute gibt, aber Sie werden durch das S7020D dennoch nicht enttäuscht sein. Für 1049$ mit 80GB Hard Disk und einem Multilayer Multiformat DVD Brenner ist der Preis fair. Der Einzelkern 2 GHz Intel Pentium M 760 Prozessor und 512 MB RAM sind zwar nicht mehr technische Spitze, aber die Maschine schaffte den Top Score vn 245 im MobileMark 2005. [übersetzt]

The good: Conservative (yet not boring) design; strong application performance; useful set of ports and connections. The bad: Display is not wide-screen; short battery life. The bottom line: Fujitsu's business-oriented thin-and-light LifeBook S2210 offers plenty of features and strong performance, but its standard-aspect display isn't for everyone. Worse, its battery life fell below our expectations.

80% Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook S2110 laptop Review
Source: Pocket Lint English
Fujitsu Siemens may not be the first company you think of when deciding on an ultraportable notebook but in recent months, the company has stepped up its game and released a number of interesting machines. The styling of the S2110 plays into the sombre black and grey of most Fujitsu Siemens machines but with an overall weight of 1.9kg, it’s light enough to carry with you without being a burden. With a powerful processor and a great battery life, this is a lightweight notebook at a great price. There are a couple of tricks missing with this notebook, such as the low-resolution screen and entry-level graphics, which stop it just short of a Hot Product rating. However, in every other respect this is a powerful and highly portable notebook, which we found a pleasure to use.

Fujitsu-Siemens - LifeBook S2110 review
Source: IT Reviews English
The key feature of the Fujitsu-Siemens LifeBook S2110 is the AMD Turion processor, because this is the first professional Fujitsu-Siemens laptop to use AMD hardware. That may sound like a significant breakthrough for AMD, but the Amilo A series has used Turion for some time now, and you could buy an S2110 under the Fujitsu brand in the US before Christmas, but all good things come to those who wait. A professional laptop is all about mobile working so the 1.9kg weight is important, as it makes the S2110 highly portable.

On its own, the Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 is a fine basic business laptop that gets the job done. But compared with the other 13-inchers, you’re getting less style and substance per dollar.

Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 is a decent notebook with good looks, the 13.3" screen size is really quite a sweet spot between being an ultraportable and larger 14" thin-and-light notebook. It's easy to carry around, yet not so small that the screen is tough for viewing. Speaking of viewing, the screen is absolutely fantastic. The professional styling and cool looking media buttons would suit a practical but style conscious business person. The downsides to the notebook are the middling battery life, it runs a bit warm, and the keyboard could be improved. On the whole though there's not much to complain about. The starting price of the S2210 is around $1,299 and the price as tested is $1,979. Personally I think the price is a bit high for what you get relative to other notebooks out there, but as always you can shop around to find better prices, so do your homework there.

Source: Laptop Mag English
With nearly every laptop manufacturer having abandoned standard-aspect displays for the roomier widescreen format, it's a bit of a shock to see a square-shaped screen these days. And yet here comes the Fujitsu LifeBook S2210's boxy 13.3-inch display, which joins a few ThinkPads in making a final stand for this dying breed. While that's not enough to dismiss the S2210 outright, its fine array of components and features don't compensate for the short battery life.

Bottom line: The Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 business ultraportable has a larger-than-average screen and a built-in optical drive. The base model is the best value. Pros: 4-pounder with a 13.3-inch screen. Optical drive is modular. Cons: Below-average processor. Middling performance. Top-tier configuration is overpriced.

The Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S6410 proved a mixed bag in terms of performance, delivering an impressive battery life that most people will be more than satisfied with, while the processing power leaves a little to be desired.

Source: Bios Magazine English
Overall the LifeBook S6410 is a solid ultra-portable laptop for business users. Its performance is average rather than leading-edge, but it’s more that up to the task of running typical business applications. The integrated Intel graphics won’t handle demanding 3D applications or games, and the fixed Webcam can make positioning a little difficult. But the display itself is sharp and clear, and the integrated 3G connectivity and 802.11n are perfect for those who need to stay connected. The only real disappointment is build quality, which could prove a problem under heavy use.

It offers decent performance and reasonable battery life. It's not the prettiest machine available, but it should be fairly dependable and it's got a nice personality.

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).

When portability is crucial but you can't afford to sacrifice screen real estate, it may seem to you that finding a laptop equipped to meet your needs will be near impossible. The Fujitsu LifeBook S6520 ($1,869 direct) could be the answer to your prayers. It's rare to find a 14-inch widescreen on an ultraportable, but the Fujitsu LifeBook S6520 pulls it off and still manages to come in at less than 4 pounds.

The Fujitsu LifeBook S6520 is available in three customizable configurations starting at $1,479, $1,749, and $1,869. That’s a few-hundred dollars more than similarly equipped 14.1-inch models that aren’t as small and light as the S6520, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad T400. But for road warriors who want a constant companion with the comfort of the larger screen, the S6520 is money well spent.

Fujitsu Siemens' Lifebook 4 Life deal is something quite new for the IT industry. Invest in one of its Lifebook range of laptops and, every three years, the firm will give you a new one, absolutely free of charge. A standard-issue corporate laptop with suspect ergonomics and a price that's way too high.

Fujitsu-Siemens reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).

ATI Radeon Xpress 200M: ATI Radeon Xpress 200M is the shared memory integrated graphic card from ATI based on a X300 core. In general it is a bit faster than the Intel GMA 950 graphic core.

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).

ATI Radeon Xpress 1150: Faster clocked Xpress 1100 onboard graphics card with x300 core. Should run Vista Aero Glass fluently.

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.

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

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

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.

AMD Turion 64: This is a derivative of the Athlon 64 with SSE3 with nx storage protection, 32 and 64 bit support, integrated memory controller for PC3200 memory, mode for low capacity, HT800 and 2 variants ML with 35 Watt and MB with 25 Watt consumption. Regarding the consumption MT might be very similar to a Pentium M. The speed is moderate and approximately as fast as an Pentium M with equivalent clock speed.

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)

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.

TL-52:

In 90nm produced dual core processor with a low clock rate of 1.6 GHz. The TL-52 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

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.

T7700: Fastest Merom based Core 2 Duo with 35 Watt. The later Penryn Core 2 Duo are a bit faster at the same clock speed.

P8600:

Fast but still not overpriced dual core CPU. For most games and multimedia applications sufficient and due to the 25W TDP even for smaller notebooks useable.

T9400:

The T9400 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo P9500 with a higher TDP of 35 Watt.

Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

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.


1.6 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

3 kg:

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


74.3%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
