good laptop, included support disapointing
Pros: Intel i7 CPU in small footprint machine slighly bigger than a netbook. this is for those that love the size of a netbook but need more power.
Cons: The give you downgrade disks for XP, but no reimaging kit for Windows 7. Included is a piece of paper that says the first thing to do when logging on is create Windows 7 image disks. (not to mention i bought a SSD drive to immediatly swap out which needed to be imaged). So the first thing you do with your $1,500 laptop is spend an hour and a half making image DVDs (uses 5 disks).This is not fun.When you get a new machine, you want to use it.Fujitsu's cheapness also extends to no instruction manual.The manual is on the desktop.My friend who got a cheaper machine from a different manufacturer got Windows XP, Win7 32 and Win 64 re-image DVDs and a manual. Fujitsu should have also charged $5 more and included this. Also the machine is NOT upgradable to 8 gigs. There are 2 dimm slots. 1 is not user accessable which has a 2 gig stick. So the most you can do is put a 4 gig into the user accessable slot and upgrade. For $1,500 again Fijitus should have put 4 gigs in standard.
Other Thoughts: they include 2 gigs standard in a hidden dim slot.you can put 4 gigs into the user accesable dimm slot. However this is just cheap of Fijitsu. Anyone who buys a laptop now would upgrade it to at least 4 gigs. For $1500, it should have 4 gigs (and allow you to upgrade to 8).
