And while the Amilo isn't the cheapest notebook we've ever seen, it's not far off - remarkable given some of the treats inside. On first impressions, the Amilo chassis is one of the most outwardly basic to come through our doors. The design is unapologetically plain, with only the silver-finish lid providing any sort of decorative flourish. There's no serial or parallel, no PC Card slot or FireWire, and certainly nothing as forward-looking as an ExpressCard slot or media card reader.
That isn't to say it feels cheap, as the chassis is perfectly solid in all the key areas, with the palmrests and lid being particularly robust. But its appearance is in stark contrast to slightly costlier models such as Samsung's Q70 see p48 , and there's little pretence of metal highlights or sleek lines. The keyboard is generously sized with a perfectly reasonable layout, but it isn't as solid as we'd like, leading to an unpredictable action and the occasional missed key.
That's in contrast to the excellent trackpad, with its widescreen aspect and rock-solid mouse buttons fitting the bill perfectly. Surrounding it are some handy shortcut buttons for launching applications and switching the wireless on and off. The screen, too, is at the entry-level end of the market, with a modest resolution of 1, x spread across the Thankfully, it's also of reasonable quality, with pleasingly vivid colour and viewing angles - although hardly exceptional - adequate for individual viewing.

Elsewhere, the components diverge from Intel's Centrino platform not a bad thing in itself and, although the Atheros wireless card doesn't go as far as offering the draft The omission of Bluetooth is hardly a deal-breaker for most people, either.
Fujitsu Siemens does scale back on the graphics side, with the discrete card just a small step up from an integrated option. The ATi Radeon Xpress M card won't curry much favour with gamers - we saw an average frame rate of just 5fps in our lowest Call of Duty 2 benchmark settings - but it should manage older titles. Non-gamers should also be happy, as the Xpress M handles Aero duties in Vista with ease.
There are areas that feel downright budget, the Amilo's mobile credentials being chief among them. The 4,mAh battery is physically tiny and lasted barely over an hour in our intensive rundown test.
