First Look: Fujitsu M2010

2:20 /

With a thick chassis and features that don't rise above the pack, the Fujitsu M2010 will have a hard time breaking through the clutter of less-expensive systems.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Hi, I'm Scott Stine, senior associate editor with CNET and this is the Futijsu M20 Netbook. Futijsu is coming into 2009 with a netbook that they claim is for the educational market. You wouldn't really know it from looking at it, which these racy red tones and kind of executive toy type of feel. It's certainly thick enough to be an education netbook. There are thinner netbooks available out there. It's odd timing too when you consider that the Dell Attitude 2100 education netbook is really sort of primarily aimed for the educational market, really nice rubberized design. This is a pretty standard netbook interior. I've got 1 gig of RAM, Adam processor running at 1.6 giga hertz, 10 inch screen which is nice and bright and pretty loud speakers, although not booming in the bass department. Which are again strange features for something that's supposed to be aimed at the educational market. The Futijsu M2010 notebook costs 449, which in 2009 is a little high. The keyboard is nice and clicky, has a very nice response. However, it's small. We would have really preferred something that ran edge to edge and was more like a real full 12 inch laptop keyboard that is available on similar sized models. The touchpad feels nice, very responsive, good track across the screen and nice clicky set of dual keys there. The Futijsu M2010 comes with 3 USB ports, Ethernet jack, memory card, but no express card reader and it comes with VGA port and pretty much all standard features. And the M2010 comes with two different audio ports, one for your headphones, and one for a microphone. And the built in microphone sensitivity is pretty good. It does have a very sturdy design and feel, so you know you feel like you could bang it around a little bit. The battery life comes in at about 2 hours with a three cell battery. While videos stream nicely on it and the colors look good on the screen, these aren't necessarily features that we need in an educational netbook. So the M2010 feels a little bit lost somewhere between an executive toy and something you'd use in a school. I'm Scott Stine with CNET and this is the Futijsu M2010 netbook. ^M00:02:18 [ Music ]
