Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S2110 AMD-based notebook

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Fujitsu Siemens supplied the S2110 with a port replicator which typically costs £60. It adds legacy ports, two USB ports and an S-Video output while carefully skirting the mini Firewire output on the back of the notebook, but this brings us to the one annoyance that we can level at the S2110. All of the ports are arranged along the back, along with the wireless on/off switch, with the modular drive bay on the right and the single PC Card slot on the left. The chassis is very tight for space but we would have dearly loved to have one USB on each side to make life easier for those who prefer to use a mouse with their notebook. It’s a small complaint but one which will nonetheless affect most users.

The main feature of the S2110 is the AMD processor and it is also the least significant part. Indeed, we would defy anyone to tell whether this notebook runs on a Turion or a Celeron, but anything that provides us with more choice as buyers has to be a good thing.

Testing the machine using PCMark 05 yielded a score of 1,848 marks - not at all bad for a machine of its class.

Verdict

The Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook S2110 is a smart, professional notebook that uses its AMD mobile-orietned Turion processor to keep up with the Intel competition and deliver a very decent battery life. Not a machine for gamers, or multimedia buffs, but it's spot on for business users and most consumers looking for a compact, lightweight system. ®
