The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Wireless connectivity runs to both Bluetooth and 802.11b/g - if you want 3G or 802.11n then you'll need to plug in some extras.

Netbook-standard spec

Speaking of which, you only get two USB ports, which is a little on the stingy side given that most netbooks pack at least three, but at least they're positioned on opposite sides so you can have some say in where you want to put your peripherals.

You'll also find a VGA connector on the left, and Ethernet and power on the right-hand side. Fujitsu Siemens has also included a ExpressCard 34 slot, something you don't normally find on machines of this size, but which is handy if you don't like HSDPA dongles stuck onto the side of your machine.

Colourful covers

Round the front are the usual status LEDs, plus headphone and microphone sockets, and a memory card slot which will accept SD, SDHC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro and MMC devices. One thing to note, however, is the slot doesn't swallow the card whole. An SD card, for example, protrudes from the machine by around 15mm - so it's not really suitable for use as permanent solid-state storage.
