I've always liked Fujitsu laptops, but not a single machine I've seen in the retail "pipe" is silent. Laptops tend to be a little quieter but never silent.
As to the rest of your specs, such a machine should be fine.
The only NEGATIVE I read is that the DVD recorder is only a DVD+R/W. For today, I am thinking a DVD recorder in a laptop isn't a great idea since it's only 2X from all models I've seen and many are not multi-format. I have an external USB 2.0 8X all format DVD recorder that I popped together with the USB 2.0 case and an 8X drive for less than 99 bucks. It may cost as much as 199 so figure that in if you start making more than a few DVDs.
The multi-format is important because some DVD players don't play DVD+R, but DVD-R and vice versa.
I have previusly ovned three desktop machines and two notebooks(in work). I intend to by a home notebook.
My company is offering me this machine:
Fujitsu Siemens AMILO M 1420
My intended use is:
- Webbrowsing, mailing
- Burn CD, DVD
No high demands on performance (games)
Important for me:
Silent and compact machine
I have searched the net for reviews but no luck.
1. Opinions about the amilo M 1420 i general.
2. Reviews for the machine?
4. Owner comments for the amilo m 1420?
Hoping for a fast reply, since the deadline is on tuesday.
