Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S2110 AMD-based notebook

The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

The Turion 64 Mobile MT-34 is a lidless Socket 754 processor from the Athlon 64 family that runs at 1.8GHz and has 1MB L2 cache. It supports 64-bit software, although we doubt that many will upgrade their notebook to Windows Vista when the opportunity presents itself. More importantly the Turion has the hardware Enhanced Virus Protection feature that prevents buffer overflow attacks, and it does all this with a Thermal Design Power rating of 25W.

During our time with the S2110 it was noticeable that part of the underside of the chassis got warm, and it can surely be no coincidence that this region has a thin layer of furry material that is surely intended to prevent, ahem, thermal problems in the trouser area. When the notebook is idling it is essentially silent but when it is working for its living you can hear a cooling fan spinning into action.

Fujitsu Siemens supplied this model with 1GB of PC2700 memory in two 512MB modules of memory so there's no scope for an upgrade but realistically that won’t be necessary.

The chassis is solidly built and has a matt black finish that will endear it to the business community. The keyboard is well laid out with everything in the correct place, although the Del key is top right next to the Pause key. Most importantly the Enter key is outboard of the other keys so touch typists will be able to work at full speed. We wouldn’t go so far as to say that the S2110 keyboard surpasses a ThinkPad – does anything? – but it runs it very close indeed.

Above the keyboard there are six buttons in a row, along with a single row LCD display. Four of these buttons can be toggled between application mode and DVD playback mode and to their right is the Power button which has the all-important blue backlight. The toggle button has a green backlight that clearly states which mode you are in.
