Reviews for the Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook S2210

60% Fujitsu LifeBook S2210 (13-inch)
Source: Laptop Mag English
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.

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 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.

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

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

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.

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.» 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.
