Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xa 1526 review: Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xa 1526

The Good Impressive application and 3D performance; remote control in card slot.

The Bad Large and heavy; short battery life; limited ports.

The Bottom Line If you're after a good time machine, the Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Xa 1526 will keep you entertained, but it lacks an internal TV tuner and it won't run for long without power. Keep it plugged in, however, and you won't be disappointed by its performance

Laptops no longer need be feeble little underpowered things that are okay with Microsoft Word but break out into a sweat at the thought of running games or video applications.

The Amilo Xa 1526 from Fujitsu Siemens is one such model and it's not massively expensive either, with a price tag of just £810 from

If you're short on space, without the surface area to devote to a full PC setup, but don't want to sacrifice performance, then the Amilo Xa is a good compromise. It's a reasonably priced machine capable of turning in results that would surpass more expensive models.

Running it through the PCMark05 benchmark, its 1.8GHz AMD Turion64 X2 TL-56 processor and generous 2GB of RAM pulled in a score of 3,839, which is impressive for a laptop -- especially one in this price bracket. It's also no slouch when it comes to games -- its 256MB Nvidia GeForce Go7600 managed to rack up a 3DMark06 score of 2,332, which could give some desktop machines a run for their money.
