The Amilo La 1703 is quite fast for surfing the net or using office applications such as Word or Excel, but for games with graphically complex 3-D scenes, it isn't so good. The graphics processor calculated an average of only five images per second - for action games too little.
The Fujitsu has 1024 megabytes of RAM are installed. That's enough for Windows Vista Basic and also makes it easy to handle a few more programs that need more memory. If the memory is not sufficient yet, you can extend to 2048 megabytes.
The amilo has a very glossy screen which looks great when turned off but because of the extreme glodd, the reflections produce annoying reflections. Also, fingerprints can be seen very easily.
Environment / Health
The battery life is very short and after one hour, it has to be charged back to the wall socket. That is not enough time for a complete feature film on DVD or enough time playing a game.
Fujitsu Siemens AMILO La 1703 with its elegant black design is made for users who demand performance and portability on a budget, but also want to have a good-looking notebook. Its 15.4-inch CrystalView display allows you to watch all your DVDs and pictures in brilliant and vivid colors. The built-in DVD Dual Double Layer makes it extremely comfortable to burn all your pictures, documents and other media on DVD. And with its integrated Wireless LAN you can go online on the move, check your e-mails or surf the Internet.
So the AMILO La 1703 strikes the perfect balance between mobility, price - performance and a good-looking design.
