One of my friends has Fujitsu s6231 and is very happy with that machine, the screen size 13.1inch and no dead pixels, very portable as well.The battery life is good if you are reading , editing etc.
This model is now not available in Australia so I did not go for it. I have opted for Dell Inspiron 700m and going by the posts here I should have ordered a Dell branded Mug as well to collect the liquified LCD
It should arrive within a day or two and I will post about the clicks and ticks of hard drive, and, whether I can use it as a Lap heater
May I please have your opinion on my upcoming purchase of a Notebook? I am stuck deciding between the Dell Inspiron 700m and the Fujitsu Lifebook S6231. Both seem to fit my needs on paper, but since it is a big purchase for me, I'd like your opinions on the overall performance of each. I have seen the Lifebook at the store and like most of it, including the ports in the back of the notebook. The problem with Dell is that I cannot see the 700m anywhere before I purchase.
I like the size and weight of both. I will most likely want to equip with the same, 1.8 mhz processor, 1GB ram, and 80GB HD. I need wireless for here and use in South America also. I have always bought Dell machines and never purchased a Fujitsu, but the Fujitsu seems to fit my needs exactly at my price range of $1600 or so. I don't want to buy the Fujitsu if the Dell is just as good. I have owned 4 dell desktops with good track record.
Also, anything new coming out in this class of notebook in the next few months?
Thanks for any feedback. It is much appreciated!
