      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Fantastic if you're looking for a tough laptop that will withstand pretty much anything!

      I came to own a Fujitsu Siemens Esprimo Mobile V5515 laptop after my previous laptop died on me quite spectacularly and the insurance company decided that a replacement was more economical.

      At the time, the V5515 was a new release so I was very content with my new twinkly laptop and it's specifications.

      The laptop features a Pentium Dual Core 1.86GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 120GB hard drive, DVD/CD re-writer, Mirage 3+ graphics card and Vista operating system, to name but a few.

      The specifications mean that you can happily surf the internet, use word processing suites and store photos whilst still having a good, fast system.
      This makes it perfect for individual or family use, but if you want to run image processing suites and games you may want to look at some of the higher models which include 2GB RAM so that the system can handle the large amounts of information.

      Going back to the point of image processing and gaming I have found this laptop to be a bit too chuggy - especially if you are trying to run Photoshop or run a game such as Spore.

      In terms of build, the laptop is robustly built and can withstand being dropped and knocked about - although, obviously, this is not advisable!

      On the point of resilience to dropping and being knocked around it must be noted that, as is the case with many laptops, the power pin for the charger cable is quite flimsy and mine actually broke off after around 6 months of use.

      I should also mention that the battery life of this laptop is not amazing! I can get about 30 minutes of usage from the laptop if I am doing basic things like surfing the internet - after which the power pack needs to be used and I think this probably contributes to the short life of the power pin, mentioned above.

      The screen is a very nice 15.4" widescreen TFT panel and has good brightness and contrast making it easy to use without strain to the eyes.

      The keyboard is also nicely laid out and is not too cramped and small making it easy to type without hitting the wrong keys, as can sometimes be the case with small laptop keyboards.

      So, all in all - this laptop is great if you mainly stick to day to day tasks such as browsing the internet and word processing and is good for the price (currently around £250) but if you're looking to process and store large quantities of images and/or play games you will need to find something a bit more powerful!
