After playing with my new laptop I must say that I made the right decision in buying this beautiful piece of electronic. It is very nice manufactured and the screen is simply amazing. It has brighter colors than my 21” Sony CRT.
As far as ghosting in video games, the screen performs well. There is only minor ghosting which I expect from a 20 ms LCD.
The laptop is very stable but gets very hot on the top left side.
Some people complained about the speakers that they have no integrated subwoofer. Fujitsu should have done this but I never expect good speakers from Fujitsu. I have owned several Lifebooks and they all had horrible speakers. (Probably one of the worst speakers on the market)
I actually was surprised with the clarity of the speaker. The highs sound very nice and crisp.
I did swipe out the hard drive to a 60 GB 7200 RPM. Everything below 7200 RPM will slow down the system with its generous hardware.
What I really like is the SD card port. I own a Treo 600 and it makes it much easier to put my mp3’s, word documents and other files on my Treo using that slot.
The wireless does work great and I get great reception even though the antenna is integrated. I can pick up several other networks around our neighborhood which I couldn’t with my old netgear wireless G card.
The keyboard is also great and reminds me a little bit of a Thinkpad keyboard.
This is my 4th Fujitsu and defiantly not my last one.
As far as price goes I think it is justified to spend over $2000.00 for a 10 pounds desktop replacement. If you compare Sony and HP’s similar configured desktop replacements the Fujitsu stands out far more. The laptop is manufactured much better and the screen is the best on the market.
