Fujitsu Siemens promotes the AMILO M1451G as a mobile Notebook with good performance and slim design, suitably for office applications and home
entertainment. At present it is offered for 1099 Euro on the website of the manufacturer.
At the moment Pentium M by far is the most frequently used processor in laptops. Compared with other processor types it is very fast per megahertz and does not need much energy.
15.4" widescreen displays are a very frequently used format for notebooks and represents an average size for laptop screens.
The weight of 3 kg of the AMILO M1451G is average, too. About half of the models tested by us weighs about just as much (list).
The enter key has normal size, but it is encircled by page run keys (danger of wrong clicks). The arrow keys are separated from the remainder of the keyboard (favorably for players).
The mayor part of the case is made of plastics and therefore probably not so durable as metal cases. 2 USB connections on the right and on the left side are a generous amount and pleasant for right-handed and left-handed people (no mouse handicap by cables). There are no PCMCIA Slot, but an express-cardreader.
The ventilators switch themselves in/out automatically. The silent mode, which can be activated, throttles the performance and so reduces the noise of the ventilator and current consumption. Regrettably the ventilator exit is (as with MSI Megabook 635 and Megabook 645) on the right side. At least it is positioned in the rear area of the side (contrary to the two models mentioned). Nevertheless the hand of right-handed people with mouse is strongly warmed up during higher load.
