Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook P7010
Fujitsu Siemens’ P-series ultraportable notebooks tend to draw admiring comments -- even, as we found during this review, from seasoned technology reporters. P-series systems are comfortably small enough that when the person in front of you in economy class leans back, you don’t have to worry about the screen breaking. The latest in the line, the 1.1GHz ultra-low-voltage Pentium M-based P7010, has one of the sharpest, crispest LCD screens we’ve ever seen; it also packs an enormous amount into a very small space, including a CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive, slots for the three main types of flash memory cards, and 802.11b/g wireless networking. At £1,399 (ex. VAT) including upgrade options such as an 80GB hard disk and 512MB of RAM, the 1.3kg P7010 is extremely good value and gets a well-deserved Editors' Choice award.
