Computer equipment Siemens became widely known in the market of Uzbekistan since 1994-1995. However, then she was under the trademark of Siemens Nixdorf. Fujitsu Computers was primarily known as a manufacturer of cool laptops.
Fujitsu Siemens Computers — it is a subsidiary of Siemens AG and Fujitsu Limited, established on 1 October 1999 by the merger of Fujitsu Computers (Europe) Ltd. and Siemens Computer Systems (Fujitsu Limited, Tokyo (50%) Siemens AG, Munich (50%). Global collaboration between Fujitsu and Siemens provides Fujitsu Siemens Computers access to the experience and advanced technologies of both companies-founders. Income Fujitsu Siemens Computers for the 2002/2003 financial year amounted of 5.34 billion euros.
On the market of Uzbekistan, Fujitsu Siemens Computers is most known for its monitors, laptops and personal computers, although the product range is much wider, laptops, pocket PCs, desktop PCs, workstations, servers based on Intel and UNIX, mainframes, and even data storage system. Fujitsu Siemens Computers is present in all key markets across Europe, Middle East and Africa and has companies in most countries in those regions, in which the work of 7.5 thousand people. Most of the products are manufactured in our own plants in Augsburg, Paderborn and Sommerda in Germany. However, the subject of our review is not the view of the company, and checked the laptop, courtesy of our editorial company NURON.
Our rapid testing can be called — testing laptop design all-in-one, this means that we have tested notebooks, which contain in a single package all devices and drives. Each of the three tested laptops can successfully replace a desktop PC as performance and screen size. So, we passed on testing three models in the series Amilo: Amilo M-7400, Amilo D-1840 and Amilo L-6825. Making a brief digression to explain that Fujitsu Siemens Computers produces three series laptop: Lifebook (famous trademark of Fujitsu Computers), Celsius Mobile (trademark of Siemens Computer Systems) and Amilo (brand new Fujitsu Siemens Computers). In our country has gained in popularity laptops it is the Amilo series because of the good price/performance.
the Choice of the tested models are not random because all of these models incorporates the concept of «all-in-one», but differ in the applied technology (Intel Centrino and Intel Hyper — Threading) or processor type (Pentium 4, Pentium 4 HT, Pentium M), and the specific dimensions of a matrix with an aspect ratio of 16:9.
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L-6825
Model Amilo L-6825 was intended by the manufacturer as 100 % replacement of desktop PCs, which are conducive to its specifications: processor Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz (FSB 400 MHz, L2 cache-512 KB, memory — 512 MB DDR, integrated video card Intel 845 GV, hard drive — 40 GB optical drive — DVD RW R (24x16x8x4x 2,4x).
Conclusions: laptop Amilo L-6825 is a real alternative to a desktop PC. Having a large matrix, a powerful processor, DVD RW, R, built-in modem and network card, as well as a large number of ports expansion (especially 5 USB ports), the laptop can solve any tasks that rely on a powerful desktop PC. This laptop is not so bulky, and it can take on the road. The only drawback, perhaps, is not powerful enough for modern 3D games integrated video card and the lack of opportunity prompt replacement battery. For that most suitable for the model, which will be discussed below.
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo D-1840
all is not really understood, what is the meaning of «home theater», and there are laptops that carry the concept of «mobile cinema». What this means is we have learned in the course of testing the model Amilo D-1840. To start here specifications: processor — Intel Pentium 4 2.8 GHz with HT technology (FSB 400 MHz (models with processor 3.06 GHz — FSB 800/533 MHz), L2 cache-512 KB), motherboard based on the SiS chipset SiS 648FX SB 963, memory — 256 MB DDR 266, hard drive — 40 GB, optical drive — DVD RW R (24x16x8x4x 2,4x). Now let’s move on to the most important — «highlights», three of them.
1 x IEEE1394, 3 x USB 2.0, 1 x S-Video,1 x Fast IrDA, 1 x modem, 1 x LAN, 1 x CRT, 1 x type I/II PC Card supports 32-bit CardBus), 1 x line-in, 1 x parallel port,1 x headphone output (S/PDIF),1 x microphone input.
However, to pay for everything. Through the use of a wide matrix, powerful graphics and high-frequency processor, the laptop lithium-Ion battery (which is in contrast to the model Amilo L — 6825 can quickly be replaced by more) may not work more than 2.5 hours. Despite the fact that the battery has a capacity of 4400 mAh, the intensive game (we played Need for Speed: Underground) is about 2 hours. We were struck by the power supply. When the weight of the laptop 3.5 kg power supply weighs about 1 kg, it is Clear that the laptop Amilo D-1840 is not designed for frequent business trips.
Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M-7400
When testing this model, we are primarily interested in — whether Intel Centrino has what is written above. The weight of the laptop is 2.6 kg with battery times (according to manufacturer) up to 4.5 hours. Our testing showed about 5 hours, however, when the average intensity of the work. When watching a DVD the laptop has worked for more than 3.5 hours! It very well. The laptop has a good integrated video card Intel 855GM chipsets with integrated 32-bit 2D/3D controller technology dynamic video memory (VRAM to 64MB UMA). Of course, it cannot compare with the ATI MOBILITY RADEON 9600, but can be quite decent even for games. It is hard to imagine that this laptop someone will buy for gaming, but for work and travel, it can be recommended. First, the power supply weighs less than 200 grams, and secondly, even from one battery (additional battery can be changed easily) laptop can work more than 4 hours. We liked the matrix laptop, which has a size of 15” and allows you to work with XGA resolution, 1024 x 768, 16 million colors and even SXGA+, 1400 x 1050, 16 million colors.
Conclusions. Model Amilo M-7400 is an outstanding representative of laptop with Intel® Centrino™mobile technology. A relatively thin design, light weight for the model «all-in-one» and 15″ matrix, integrated wireless Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 LAN and sufficient processor power. AMILO M-series — this is a good combination of mobility and performance. Intel® Centrino™ Mobile allows you to reduce power consumption of the laptop AMILO M-series and increase the time to work in standalone mode.
In the end I would like to emphasize: all series notebooks Amilo have elegant design color silver metallic, the included software is easy to configure and completely Russified. Tested laptops do not have any flaws and obvious flaws. Overall impression. laptops Fujitsu Siemens Computers series Amilo — this is a high class products, which can decorate the desktop of any computer gourmet.
