You can find nothing very interesting on the bottom panel:
It’s just funny to see a blocked vent opening here:
The real vent opening is actually located in the center of the panel which is its proper place – it won’t get blocked by the user’s legs when the notebook is held on the laps. As for the sealed opening, it is intended for more advanced configurations that can be assembled in the same notebook carcass. For the given notebook model, however, the extra vent opening is just not necessary.
The battery is like Acer’s – normal size, but half the normal capacity:
The power adapter doesn’t differ much from Acer’s in size and parameters:
The Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V2030 gives me an odd impression. Its only serious drawback is the half-capacity battery, yet it would have been hard to arrive at the price of $735 by simply including a half battery and not including an OS. The answer can be found in the specification: the notebook is based on VIA’s system logic, the VN800 chipset and the UniChrome Pro graphics processor. Frankly speaking, I didn’t feel any discomfort for that fact, while the FireWire and Wi-Fi interfaces make up for the half battery and the lack of the OS with interest, considering the notebook’s price. The Amilo Pro V2030 will suit perfectly to people who want a desktop office PC with normal functionality for a reasonable sum of money. The Acer Aspire 3003NLC is its only competitor among the reviewed notebooks when it comes to the technical parameters, yet the Aspire costs more and its workmanship is worse.
The Amilo Pro V2030 won’t suit you if the battery life is your priority – its reduced-capacity battery cannot ensure an acceptable time of autonomous operation.
