About keyboards with the usual also in desktop keyboards 19-mm grid, which is particularly good at blind writers . Or displays with the required for large websites horizontal resolution of 1,280 pixels, and more. But in the through man-machine interface is of course not the only luxury that justifies an investment from 1,800 euros.
So has the Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook S6420 that now even a value-for-you model for 1,899 Euro 2.53-gigahertz core-2-Duo processor (test device: 2.4 GHz) has to offer as an Integrated UMTS module as a bonus.

UMTS modem already installed
The LifeBook has the new extension default about for UMTS data cards, however, not necessary, a UMTS modem has built-in already there. In addition, it supports Wi-Fi to the draft N version, via Bluetooth’s, however, not radio.
The spill-resistant keyboard when working is a good feeling; only at the center of the letters G and H she bends through slightly too much under pressure. In terms of volume and frequency of use of the fan, so it not completely silent, a real restlessness pen Rist but it isn’t also.
Stamina not very much has the Fujitsu Siemens with three and a half hours which is measured but still above average absolute standards.
Bottom line: Physically, the Fujitsu Siemens LifeBook S6420 cannot match not with the best of its class, it is also in the still very good handling. But with noticeably good equipment and performance values it not least leaves a good impression due to the integrated UMTS modem.
