Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook P7010
It’s not so easy to find a masterpiece of design thought among notebooks from Fujitsu Siemens. The Amilo series doesn’t please your eyes with its exterior, for example. But the portable Lifebook P7010 is not so easy to find fault with as concerns the appearance alone:
The designers of this series have earned their wages well. The P7010 is an example of how an ideal full-fledged notebook with a 10” screen must look like: all necessary interfaces, a full-size battery, an optical drive, a normal keyboard, and a compact case with a total weight of only 1.3kg! An interesting feature of this model is that the lid can open up by more than 180 degrees:
This is really convenient when you hold the notebook on your laps: you can put one leg over the other and put the notebook on top of it and comfortably type in text, for example.
Although the device is equipped with a full rather than half-capacity battery, you don’t see any protruding things in its rear part:
The designers receive my thanks for that, because the notebook looks very neat and pretty. The Fujitsu Siemens designers should also be taken example from as concerns putting various connectors around a notebook.

Note also how the output of the cooling system is designed:
This is the best place for a vent opening as it will always be open irrespective of how you put the notebook down for work – on your laps or on a desk. Air seems to be taken in through the perforated decorative grid in the top panel of the case:
