Now I have you attention with the atrotious pun I'll get down to business. I LOVE THIS LAPTOP! It's wonderfully quick, downloads as effortlessly as a cloud glides and, I know this is kind of the point of laptops, but is one of the most transportable laptops I've ever owned. Yes, this may be because of the less chunky design and the lightweight physique, but on a note of vanity it 's also because I would't come close to feeling ashamed at having this thing out in Starbucks. You know that typical businessman/woman nagging in this situation...is my laptop so pritzy that it makes me look unprofessional, is my laptop so basic and dark that it looks ancience? Amilo Pro V3505 covers this nicely. It's a sleek black and grey, very nice and businesslike, but it's so up to date looking and slim that it's not that laughing stock you toss and turn over at night (note: I REALLY hope you don't toss and turn over your laptops aesthetics...)
Anyway, my conclusion is I've had this for a while, as has my brother and neither of them have packed in on us yet. Neither have they slowed for a second...it's a real dream for any student/impatient person.
My only complaint is that my 'E' key briefly came off, but it was easily repairable and to be fair I get a little overexcited with my 'EEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeee's on Facebook.
This is yet another great laptop made by fujitsu siemens. Its basically great for having around the house, and mainly for keeping on a desk most of the time. In fact id describe this as a replacement desktop, it will run just as fast as one and is so much smaller so why not get one instead of a huge desktop pc.
This particular ones the Fujitsu Siemens AMILO Pro V3505 Edition, which is another spin off of the designs of the amilo's. however this one does look a lot different to all the other amilos out there and is one of my favourite designs Fujitsu have done.
Its combination of the colours black and silver/grey make this laptop look a lot more stylish and cooler than if it was all in just one colour.
My favourite feature of this use of colour is how the grey keyboard stands out around the black bottom of the laptop, and also how just the top and bottom of the screen section is done in grey, it just makes it look sleeker.
This laptop runs very quickly, it doesn't seem to struggle when running software, internet videos and even the newest of games seem to run like a breeze on this laptop.
Like I say, this really could replace a desktop pc as it runs just as fast as one, and I certainly know ill probably never buy another pc again simply because of how fast laptops have now become. It used to be that all laptops were a lot slower than pc, but now there matching and even beating them in performance.
The main reason why it runs this fast is because of its built in 2 gb of ram. This really should be enough for anyone and I certainly have never needed a laptop with more than 2 gb of ram. It also seems to be around the maximum amount of ram you can get without spending a silly amount on a laptop. For example, you could buy a 3 gb or even 4 gb of ram laptop, however these would go over the £1500 or even £2000 mark. Whereas this laptop only costs around £500 which for 2 gb of ram is a great price.
Its doesn't disappoint in hard drive space either, as it delivers a very impressive 160 gb of storage for all your files to be saved on. I certainly have never needed a laptop with more than 160 gb and have never even filled a laptop with over 80 gb of data before, however its always good to know you can basically put whatever you want on your laptop and the space will never run out.
The screen size of this laptop is 15.4 inches. Which is around the average, and will be ok for basic laptop needs. Its not a great size for watching movies on however, and you might find it a little small if you do like to watch movies on your laptop.
Movies do run very well on it however, this is because its screen actually has active matrix, this is being used by so much more laptop manufacturers nowadays as it makes the screen lighter, therefore making the laptop lighter, is makes the image quality so much better than a normal TFT screen and it also makes the response time a lot better, which makes videos look sharper, photos look sharper and game playing look better than ever before.
It does actually have a very impressive battery life, it lasts 4 hours which is on the verge of being a portable laptop, and it would certainly last as long as most portable laptops do, however it comes in a little heavier than most laptops that boast portability do, it weighs 2.8 kg, which still isn't heavy but it might just be too much to be carrying around with you all day.
It has few extra features, it has a built in 3 in 1 card reader which is handy, but it's a shame to not see a built in webcam, not only because it's a great feature, but I think it would look good on this laptop too, so that's a shame.
Well this laptop defiantly is a great looking piece of equipment which also runs very quick too, and its also very cheap at £500. I think the main reason is because it's a Fujitsu siemens and I think if this was labelled a dell, it would certainly be at least another £100 dearer.
That being said it doesn't make it any worse quality as dells are, in fact I do prefer a lot of Fujitsu laptops over dells, so just don't let the name put you off, ever.
