The Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5505 isn’t the most featured or cutting-edge of notebooks. However, if you’re on a tight budget and looking for a machine for work purposes, it has the build quality and reliable design to serve you well. Our only concern is that you may well outgrow what it offers, so it may be worth looking for a higher-spec version.

The Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5505 isn't an all-round disappointing laptop and is still worth a look for corporate users on a tight of budget. However, it simply struggles to compete in this company, where a lack of performance and features let it down.

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.
