I recently had the fortunate opportunity to buy a Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook T4010D (slightly different model) for the fantastic price of £150, which is a bargain considering that the original retail price of this marvellous piece of machinery is set at approximately £1700. The only difference between the T4010 and the T4010D is that the latter comes with a Pentium M725 1.6GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. However, the one I bought had been upgraded to 2GB of RAM which I believe is the maximum it can take.
The Lifebook itself is quite weighty but it's very solid and sturdy and has a modern sleek and curvy design. This is also a Tablet PC and when it's open it looks pretty cool, especially the way that you can swivel the screen around, which is protected by a thick protective layer, and lay it down flat and proceed to use the pen that comes slotted in the side. This is a great convenience for anyone who needs to jot things down quickly or make references or for anyone who can can't type very fast. You can literally look through the items of ebay and use the pen to mark the ones you're interested in for later reference. It's also possible to adjust the screen for either portrait or landscape layout which can make tablet mode much more suitable and coincidentally, is also handy for playing hidden object games.
The T4010D comes with all the built-in functions that you would expect for a computer of this price including wireless, all the necessary sockets you would ever need, ethernet, infra-red, bluetooth and even function buttons on the bottom right of the screen for convenience. The computer has a great overall kind of executive feel to it and can actually be a real pleasure to use. It also uses Extreme Graphics 2 and the graphics capabilities can sometimes be quite impressive.
In terms of performance I am more than pleased. With 2GB of RAM and a CPU running at 1.6GHz the performance is perfect. Games don't lag, programs load up quicly and efficiently and the Lifebook has no problems running several processes at one time. Overall this seems to be an extremely sturdy machine with no problems at all no matter what you use it for, though admittedly the price is quite hefty. They seem to be quite rare computers now so you're unlikely to pick one up cheap.
