In the flesh: Fujitsu Siemens' Amilo Mini

The compact laptop's not at all bad looking, though its spec is straight down the line Small, Cheap Computer. It has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor; 8.9in, 1024 x 600 display; 1GB of DDR 2 memory; 802.11b/g Wi-Fi; 1.3-megapixel webcam and so on.

However, the Mini has some features the separate it out from the SCC crowd. For starters, it comes with an ExpressCard 34 slot, and its memory card reader supports various varieties of Memory Stick, not just SDHC.

The Amilo's USP is a clip-on cover, but the ones on display where underwhelming: they simply sit on top of the Amilo's lid rather than replacing it the way pop-off mobile phone faceplates do.

More useful is the little laptop's integration of a Bluetooth 2.1 sub-system, something not many netbooks have.

...and in place

The Mini comes with a four-cell, 2200mAh battery as standard. It's good for around four hours' runtime, FS claimed.

FS will be offering the UI 3520 only with Windows XP SP3, and the machine with come with a choice of 60GB or 80GB hard drive - a 120GB version is coming December. So no Linux or SSD options, it seems.

The Amilo Mini UI 3250 will go on sale in October for €400 ($594/£323)
